Neither are terrible destinations but they lack the autheticity that I desire in an urban area. Of course, you could tear my analogy apart and talk about how each example is better than the other and how Fort Worth has broken the mold blah blah blah but I will still take the downtown Dallas in progress over Sundance any day that's just my feelings and lord knows Sundance is very successful so my opinion is not that of the crowds that gather their regularly. Congrats to them for the urban CVS though Dallas has trouble with convincing that company of anything urban is a good idea.
I'd agree with that, but it's been a huge success so far, and it could definitely help pave the way for more urban development in Downtown Fort Worth. I'd almost liken it to West Village which, in my opinion, is very bland and cookie cutter and (with all the ample free parking) was designed with the car commuter in mind, but it was a huge success and paved the way for more development in Uptown, which lead to more development in other parts of the Dallas urban core.
