Re: North Dallas: Galleria

The galleria needs to tear down some space. It’s just too big for the current needs. A small format Bloomingdale’s is the only thing that would make sense going on there. Otherwise, a movie theater and some other entertainment would make sense. They could really build off of the ice rink popularity.

Curb cutouts along McKinney should be minimized, not increased. I think he’s mistaken on what would be a “Good Job”.
