  1. Plan Downtown the next 20 years

    It it needs the drug addicts and dealers cleared out. I used to walk past it every day. I quite often saw drug deals being made and saw bags on the ground.
  2. I’ve heard from people in the neighborhood that a bank leased it. I hope they are wrong. The building already appears to be reconfigured somewhat. There’s a driveway in the back now that leads to nothing. I figured it was going to lead to a drive thru after some demolition.
  3. Regent Square: Allen Parkway at Dunlavy

    Me too. I walk by the site daily. If there is any movement on site I’ll update this thread right away. Don’t hold your breath. I e-mailed the VP who is supposed to be in charge and got an undeliverable message.
  4. Amazon HQ2

    I didn’t say there wasn’t anything there. I said a yelp search returns 0 results. Work on your reading comprehension.
  5. Amazon HQ2

    I worked for KBR for several years and have been to the site many times. It’s a dump.
  6. Amazon HQ2

    What amenities are within walking distance of the KBR site? A Yelp search for restaurants in the area pulls up a big fat 0. I don't see this as a realistic option for Amazon.
  7. An excavator is on site digging up the perimeter of the property. They are putting in a wider sidewalk on the East side. I can't tell exactly what they are doing on the South side but my first guess is that they are expanding the patio and sidewalk.
  8. The Allen: Allen Pkwy/Gillette Mixed Use 6 acres

    Do we know if the property flooded or not? The satellite photos from August 31st show it dry. I walked down to the Bayou at Memorial and Shepherd every day and the 28th appeared to be the highest day. I live near Shepherd and West Dallas, we didn't get any high water. The Shepherd drainage project that took 2 years apparently worked very well for us.
  9. Nice. This appears to significantly reduce surface parking and add trees.
  10. We're also looking for ways to permanently reduce real estate footprint. There will be a LOT of work from home in the future of my company. That main driver behind it is reducing office space permanently.
  11. Gables Westcreek High-Rise - 15 floors

    Reminds me of this guy.... http://www.salon.com/2014/11/28/how_oligarchs_destroyed_a_major_american_city_partner/ I'm always amused by people that are bitter about being kicked out of a RENTAL that's getting torn down. If you like the neighborhood so much buy something. If not, it's really not your neighborhood. You're just passing through.
  12. Gables Westcreek High-Rise - 15 floors

    You seem a little bitter.
  13. No, destroy it to preserve the value of the property.
  14. If I was in control of RO shopping center I would consider demolishing all of it now to preempt any political interference with their control of the property and their right to decide what the best use of their property is.
