    "Downtown Dallas" is comprised of 15 distinct districts. Vibrant growth occurring in the city's center long ago spilled over the freeways to enlarge the scope of what is considered downtown. This has been the official definition of "Downtown Dallas" for some time now: Reflecting that vibrant growth Woodall Rodgers is now being considered as the new "Main Street": http://www.dallasnews.com/business/columnists/steve-brown/20160107-the-main-drag-for-offices-shifts-north-to-uptown.ece Wall-to-wall density now stretches on both sides of Woodall Rodgers, growing more dense by the day. There are no fewer than 23 new towers under construction in Downtown Dallas at this moment with another 9 towers with groundbreakings imminent. The density just continues to increase and in this January '16 pic (courtesy of TexasStar on Dallas Metropolis) there are 8 or 9 towers under construction in just this tiny "slice" of Downtown Dallas, including 3 in the pic's foreground. Another 2 towers are scheduled to break ground this week in the immediate foreground of the image (the two tower Union Dallas complex).

    Or could they have at least painted the HVAC grills a matching sky blue?

    Judging from the photos, any exterior detail on the theater was gone by the 40s. Also, combining the five buildings apparently ended up with a rabbit warren of interior passageways, complete with seemingly randomly placed sets of steps where the floors didn't line up with one another. Based on that, it looks like any sort of restoration would be a mammoth undertaking, if it could even be done.

    No, One Uptown has not shrunk in size. Nor has it's incredible design changed from when it was announced. That's a phenomenon happening in Houston. This project in downtown Houston keeps shrinking ... and shrinking .... what a cute shrinking little hotel! First the dramatic change in its design from world class to whatever and now yet another downsizing in its floor count from 25 to 21 to now 20: Expectations Lowered Another Notch for Rising Hotel Alessandra’s Floor Count Houston Swamplot, 02-24-16, 10:33am: http://swamplot.com/expectations-lowered-another-notch-for-rising-hotel-alessandras-floor-count/2016-02-24/

    This week the Neartown President received this letter: My name is Matt Brollier and I am working with a group of volunteers that is interested in raising funds to install artwork in the crosswalks at the intersection of Taft and Westheimer. We are seeking consideration of a letter of support from the Neartown Superneighborhood Association and are prepared to make a brief presentation to your board. I understand you have a meeting tonight, and we would be happy to present if there is time in your agenda. Our group started this effort following the hit and run death of our good friend Alex Hill at that intersection on January 8th of this year. In January, four of Alex's acquaintances spoke at Public Session of City Council, where several council members expressed support and directed us to the Montrose Management District. We spoke to the District earlier this month seeking support for our project and we have been directed to their Mobility and Visual Improvement subcommittee, chaired by CM David Robinson. Attached is the presentation we delivered to the District. I will update this for Neartown. Please let me know if tonight would be suitable for us to approach the board. Further, please let me know if you have any thoughts in general about seeking approval from your organization. We also intend to seek consideration of support from the Avondale Civic Association when they meet next in March. Thank you, Avondale Civic invited him to present at their March 3 business meeting I really like this idea.

    Houston can start calling whatever it wants to call downtown if you wish. Since you can't walk one block across a freeway via an imminently successful urban park to get from one dense district to another then however many miles you want to throw into your definition of Downtown Houston is up to you. If your definition of everything inside loop 610 is Downtown Houston then you better get into a car and be prepared to drive several miles. LOL! Downtown Dallas is comprised of 15 districts, all walkable from one to the other if one wishes. BIG, BIG DIFFERENCE! Yes, there are towers under construction in Downtown Dallas - there are 23 towers under construction in Downtown Dallas with groundbreakings imminent for 9 more, 2 of those 9 imminent towers should start within the week which will bring the total count under construction to 25. Almost all of the 23 (soon to be 25) have either just started or are only now just beginning to go vertical so within the next 12-18 months there will be an absolute sea of cranes soaring over center city Dallas. About the same time the cranes start disappearing from Downtown Houston/Midtown/Uptown. Click on "Get To Know The Districts": http://www.downtowndallas.com/#/main/home

    Never thought of that before. I guess that's why Houston puts LED light shows on its buildings. Oh, wait, Houston doesn't really do so much of that, do they?

    See the thing is that you can actually walk from Downtown Dallas to Uptown Dallas. Can't really say that for Houston. Houston is all about how the towers look from the freeway and from afar.

    Most disappointing downsize in recent years for me, of course this is because of the original renderings were great.
