Re: Oak Cliff: Bishop Arts

^That seems quite odd to me since that something like this would qualify. It is new development but most storage facilities I have ever been in have one employee that might even live onsite. That doesn't strike me as a major contributor to the local economic vitality.

They were or maybe still are supposed to make some kind of convention center connection to the park. At least I heard that once while touring the convention space.

Well the biggest relo in a long time went to DE, not sure what would be in the pipeline to get his tower out of the ground, especially with Harwood actively marketing their new tower as well.

Hillwood should go mixed use on this one.
