When this swath turns over, Dallas will have found itself on the list of global cities worth checking out. I'm just saying.

More recently, though, Hoque obtained zoning approvals for his site in the Cedars, which includes a derelict Pilgrim’s Pride plant. He named the project SoGood @ Cedars, in a nod to South Dallas and Good-Latimer, where the property exists. Designed by Hoque Global and Plano-based multifamily architecture firm Domus Studio Group, initial plans include 260 units and 50,000 square feet of retail, which will add much-needed apartments and residents to the already bustling daytime crowd and be a driver for continued growth in downtown Dallas.
Hoque says assembling the many individual tracts and parcels for development was no small feat. “For four years, I spent every waking hour on this mission,” he says. “I was like a mad man, going after all of these little pieces of property, one at a time. It was all-consuming.”

I am not saying it's a good name just tells you what price range and level of property it will be if they are using that name. It looks like the company that will manage it will be a newcomer to the Dallas market named Bozzuto.
I hope Hogue is still cleaning up all the land he operates cause it seems like it would be a hard sell if he still has a pilgrim pride factory sitting around. Build next to an empty field of developable land and you can convince renters more is coming and that they are in an upcoming neighborhood.
