Re: Uptown Dallas: Routh and Cedar Springs

So this is the replacement of Concrete Cowboy, Kung Fu, and Clutch. I wonder if it will start next year as planned or will fizzle out and we will be left with empty buildings or worse torn down buildings and an even larger parking lot. Hope so.

Re: Arts District: Hall Arts Hotel & Residences

There is actually some equipment moving dirt around this morning on the plot that is on the same side as Ross as the KPMG building. Not a ton of activity, but some after months of nothing.
