Re: North Dallas: Midtown

The challenge with that is the need for the passenger to be constricted by the schedule of the (light rail, BRT, streetcar whatever). You are waiting, in the weather, for one of the above, and that wait can be quite disagreeable. Below ground with an on demand carrier is the future. Scheduled (light...

Re: North Dallas: Midtown

I agree with your basic premise. I do not think an above ground, conventional “transportation line” is practical from a right of way, disruptive construction concerns, as well as lack of options as to how the system is configured. A Boring Company project that would allow a variety of specialized au...

Re: Deep Ellum: Epic ~ Knights of Pythias Temple

What is the reason for all the below level apparatus in this building? They have been installing several layers of what appear to be “flow through” devices covered by concrete. Anyone know?

Re: Deep Ellum: Epic ~ Knights of Pythias Temple

Anyone have any intel on what is being fabricated in the sub basement of this building. It appears to be perhaps a filtering process or some sort of special need that Uber has designated. :idea: ?

Re: Downtown Dallas: AMLI Fountain Place (562 FT / 46 ST)

You are absolutely right....KWP has played a huge role in making all that has happen in that area over the last 10 years come to pass. At the early presentation stage it was roundly critiqued as a boondoggle and a waste of time and effort...where are those folks now, oh I know, enjoying the park for...

Re: Northpark Center

I used to live in Big Canyon and would ride my bike over to Fashion Island just for the enjoyment of the experience. It is really something special. That said; the only place it would work is in the part of the country that has the best weather on the planet. Without that, the whole outside mall suf...

Re: Knox / Henderson - Knox Street Side

Anybody know what the status is of Alliance Residential's block size project south of Cole and Armstrong? I believe it received planning approval in the Spring.

Re: Oak Lawn

Also appears the Firebird Restaurant Group is remodeling the out of business Marina space for a new entry named Tullum Kitchen. No details on what sort of menu, but it is coming. Marina was located in The Shops of Highland Park.

Re: Uptown Dallas: Business Openings and Closings

It is on the high end....but it is the best in the area. It is out of the Hillstone (Houstons) profile and Hillstone is also on the "high end" but they deliver....EVERY TIME. I have been to Doc B's twice, once for lunch and once for dinner and they delivered both times.
