That rendering shows exactly what’s wrong with that plan. Their “green space” is across from another plot of small “green space” which surrounds that massive hole the crescent had right there. Why doesn’t Crescent Court’s retail do well? No question it’s because Cedar Springs from lower Mac to the trail is a car oriented mess with no foot traffic outside 10pm - 2 am on weekends.

The worst part of that statement of mine is those who are anti-urban redevelopment walkable, transit etc will misunderstand what I mean when it comes to my expectations of individual transportation and its role in urban Dallas redevelopment. We will all see what we want in my statement condemnation and validation depending on what side of the discussion we agree with.

The FAA knocked this one down to 289', which is not new news. But, I must've forgot a circularized case was still pending for 399'. Feedback was due a week ago from aviation parties.

Did this one ever start? A post earlier said the expected start date was Oct '18 but the DMN article noted that "Current leases at Cedar Maple Plaza run through 2020, so any new construction is still a ways off."

They're sure letting the maintenance of the existing buildings go, which is sad to see. Such a shame and such a waste.

Hopefully they're rethinking the entire design as it is a step back in urbanity. Build out the original 1980s plan and scale it taller if needed. That plan blended in with the neighborhood and was pedestrian friendly. They could probably even squeeze out more rentable office space and retail space than their proposal. I don't see why this has to be so hard for today's Dallas developers.
