Re: Most Exciting Projects of 2020

No D3 school should have 15K stadium for basketball. Now if you make it multi-use, it would be fine; but a hard sell nonetheless given UTD's academic and research focus. There are vague plans about an athletic district for basketball and soccer, but I've not seen any renderings or a timeline. UTD d...

Re: Downtown Dallas: 2000 Ross Project

I was always under the impression that this project was going to be completed in a phased approach with the garage and retail being phase one, the hotel being phase two, and residential being phase three.

Re: Trinity River Park

I'm not so sure that either of those statements will come to be true. 1. The park is being built with privately raised funds. 2.
