Re: Uptown Dallas: The Quadrangle

Stream Realty plans to build a 335,000-square-foot office tower at the north end of the Quadrangle site. The building will replace a section of existing retail space on Howell Street. The surface lots that now serve the complex will be replaced with new construction and wide, landscaped walkways. O...

So, put the HRC back where it's supposed to be. On McKinney Ave where it was before, only with a tower over it. Throw in a golden grasshopper and palms, too.

Re: Uptown Dallas: Business Openings and Closings

Wow, that's awful news. With Uptown in a transition stage, I was really hoping the party scene would eventually leave and we'd be left with a few 'neighborhood bars'. That still will likely happen, I'm just sad we have lost Idle Rich and are now going to lose Gingerman. I don't know how well they a...

Re: Uptown Dallas: Business Openings and Closings

I'm really excited to see what will become of Uptown now that the party scene is leaving the area. I'd imagine (and hope) that there will still be a decent amount of bars that stick around, but they'll have more of a 'neighborhood bar' type of vibe. Is the party scene really leaving???

Re: Oak Lawn

Has anyone noticed how big of an eyesore the front of the Oaklawn Public Library has become?
Everytime I drive by, I cringe at all the trash strewn about, homeless camping out on the steps and the uncared-for landscaping. Ive tried reporting it on the Dallas 311 app to no avail.

Re: Cityplace West/West Village: Residential Tower (~250 FT / 23 ST) / Hilton Canopy (8 ST)

Maybe a combined Rustic/Mutts can be re-accommodated permanently on city owned park land somewhere else in Uptown, with a long term land lease from the city. Reverchon Park seems to have some underutilized land that could work. If not, I wouldn't mind seeing them move to East Dallas into an empty l...

Re: Cityplace West/West Village: Residential Tower (~250 FT / 23 ST) / Hilton Canopy (8 ST)

I don't understand the dislike for Mutts and Rustic. Sure, I get that they were alway supposed to be temporary, but they have proven themselves to be popular attractions for the area. The notion that every square foot of uptown should be mid-rise apartments with/without ground floor retail , etc, is...

Re: Oak Lawn

Was just at the Tom Thumb in Turtle Creek Village and it looks like they lost all 3 retail tenants between Malibu Poke and World Market (Correct me if i'm wrong about this). But the signage was down for Mill No 3, Tinsley Radix and the salon that was there. Wow.
