Right. There are still too many parking lots but thankfully they’re slowing going away.

There has been a crazy amount of growth in the CBD but, unfortunately, we had a bunch of vacant bulidings to fill. Now that most of those have been filled, we'll probably see these parking lots disappearing more quickly.

Very true. Dallas has come a long way though. It’s exciting to think about the high possibility of nothing but new construction in Downtown.

Even though the vast majority of new towers over the last few years have been in the 25+/- story range, the result has been a significant increase in density in the urban core.

And Dallas is now starting to get a much larger share of 40+ story towers going up, which are helping beef up the skyline with sharp points piercing the density.

Now, all we need are a handful of 50+ story towers to sprout in the Victory Park and Uptown districts, along with a hoped for supertall or two (Perot Tower, Harwood Forum, Smart District) and all of a sudden center city Dallas will suddenly look like the the urban center of the third largest metro in the nation as we seize that title from Chicago by 2030.

Nice video, always loved flying into Love from the south. Seeing that reminds one just how much potential there is for development on the east side of downtown, wish more of that would fill in.

Fantastic picture comparison. Thanks for sharing. Really hoping the Little Mexico apartment blocks get taken out sooner rather than later, either for a redevelopment opportunity or to be replaced by a large park. I get that they are low income/subsidized hosing, but that land is just too valuable to be used for that purpose.

In the picture Trammell Crow Center (then LTV Center) is still under construction. According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trammell_Crow_Center it was completed in 1985. So figure 84-85.

1984 is correct:
Like the rest of Dallas, we are facing uncharted times here in Harwood. We've worked for 30 years to build a neighborhood for Dallasites to enjoy. And while we are still bustling behind the scenes setting the stage for the future, for now our streets, lobbies, and gardens remain quiet.
So, we want to take this time to reflect on what we have made together as a city. Swipe above to see Dallas in 1984 and the start of Harwood District. See the great comparison of how the city has grown! So much has changed, in what feels like a blink of an eye.
Stay tuned over the next weeks as we share the stories of how our city within the city has grown over the last 30+ years.

The number of times I've heard that from every single developer. This project is just too critical to provide affordable housing. Our community isn't really the right place for those kinds of people etc. Then people wonder why we have perpetual poor who are surrounded by people who are also in the same condition. Poverty tends to seed more poverty and a lack of ability to reach above the waterline. Those same people seem to also tell the poor you just need to work harder, that you need to quit that employer who won't give you paid sick leave and work for the right job that does. Those people who do have good jobs and a clear path to housing security also usually had supportive parents who helped them through college and supported them reaching for something better than minimum wage. Push the problem down the line is what we always do and its what we will continue to do.

Below is a link to a free photography guide by a pretty great photographer. It's labeled as beginner, includes some software tutorials, and, even mobile phone photo guide. All in all, seems like it's worthy even for someone who's been toting around a camera for a long time.

It's free, but, according to his insta page, today is the last day it's free. Downloads are huge, btw. Once you "pay" nothing for it, you get a download page sent to your email where you have plenty of time to retrieve up to 25 times each. You also don't actually have to be a member, either.
