For those who know though, I think the Klyde Warren extension and developments like the Christopher, Triton and Perot sites will further help to blur the lines between the areas.


That's my experience as well, it's all blending together. I could see the VP area up to the edge of "official" uptown being dotted with much taller towers and a very dense downtown feel.


Honest question—do the believers in Greater Downtown think that Hillwood or Headington could build S of WAR and get Uptown rents? 1900 Pearl did well, but it is right on the park. These other sites are not.

willyk, rent rate is not proxy for desirability because most businesses and citizens are not in the market for new office space. You're only discussing desirability to a relatively small subsegment of firms and folks, who ARE, by virtue of membership in such a subsegment, very image-sensitive. They're buying that public posture at the same time as buying convenient access to HSR or DNT or whatever else. They are usually waiting for someplace to be "trending" before they want to be seen onboard.

I don't think it's justified to act like things with differing levels of desirability have to be considered separate communities for anybody outside of CRE. Inside CRE their goals are different than our civic goals. It seems obvious to me that people can want to be part of someplace that has multiple tiers and entry points - a real downtown neighborhood is a large umbrella, not a version of the exurbs where every price level is named and sold separately -- the Lakes of Woodall Rodgers segregated from the upper echelon in the Pointe at Woodall Rodgers and the senior living communities in Sunrise Heights on Woodall Rodgers. Applying exurban logic to the central Dallas neighborhoods demonstrates, to me, the brittleness of the exurbs' small-umbrella approach.

Some windows are missing in the older office building and there's a bulldozer with a demolition company sign on it sitting in front of the small building.

Excited for this tower and that it's not quite as boxy as recent towers.

Too bad the other side of 35, nearest the river is a sea of concrete with very little vegetation. The difference is noticeable. Come on investors/ landowners, plant some trees.

That is a great shot. It is absolutely amazing how much that whole area has changed just within even the last five years.

You can also see how much potential there still is for development between Victory and Uptown/LoMac, with all those parking lots and apartments which will eventually, inevitably be built upon.

Is it mainly concentrated in just three sites with three owners—Harwood, North End and Triton? I wish it were more fractious. Things would happen sooner.

Harwood is moving forward, but very methodically. North End is asleep at the wheel. At least Triton is for sale. We might see something big happen there.
