  1. Yes, don’t you just LOVE Dallas’s two Mandarin Orientals, the Four Seasons, the St.Regis, the hotel at Highland Park Village . . . Oh, and that new hotel in the former Morning News building . . . 😉. (For the curious, all of the hotels I listed have been planned in central Dallas in recent years. None of them have started construction. And I’m sure I’ve missed some.)
  2. From my observations (which admittedly are always biased and sometimes dangerous), it seems to me that Austin rising in prominence has hurt Dallas's image way more than Houston's. It doesn't seem to me that Dallas is getting the same level of national "press" or exposure as it was even a decade ago, notwithstanding it being the best performing big MSA economy in the country. "Glitz" and "glamor" and "Texas" may have meant Dallas 10 years ago, but now it's Austin. Seems to me like most people outside of Texas have a very "blah" perception of Dallas. Somehow this development has coincided with Houston getting widely positive press for the first time since the 1970s. Incidentally, it's not often I meet anyone who lives there who have anything really positive to say . . . it's one of those regions where, if someone is from a suburb, they say they're from there versus the metro region, e.g., "I'm from Flower Mound" or "I'm from Plano," not "I'm from Dallas"--I think most people in the Houston MSA, even if they live in suburbs will say they're from Houston. Almost to a person, all these people will tell you how much they hate Dallas, too, as if it's an entirely different place than where they live. I think this podcast pretty much sums it up . . . I mean it literally quotes someone as saying they sometimes "cry themselves to sleep every night" because they moved from NYC to Frisco, but "hey, the housing's cheap." I'd say the podcast producers almost went out of their way to make Dallas sound so blah . . . the City of Dallas itself is fine to live in (IMO), but boy is it surrounded by some not nice places to live (IMO), with some pretty radical people (IMO). At the end of the day, Dallas has become a MIdwestern city.

  3. Deco 969, a new 27-story luxury high-rise, has broken ground in Fort Worth at 969 Commerce Street. The project, which is being developed by Southern Land Company, will be downtown Fort Worth’s first luxury high-rise rental residences. The project will span over 300,000-sf and feature 302 for-rent efficiency, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartment homes and penthouses. Deco 969 will also include eight floors of above-grade parking, resort-inspired amenities, and retail and restaurant space on the first floor. “We are proud to bring the first luxury high-rise rental residences to downtown Fort Worth, a location that boasts great character, notable destinations, and convenient access to plentiful businesses and services,” said Tim Downey, Southern Land Company Founder and CEO, in a release. “Deco 969 is poised to provide a one-of-a-kind lifestyle to residents seeking a refined living experience downtown—and to attract more transformative projects that will only add to Fort Worth’s vibrant culture and economy. We are so appreciative of the support of the City of Fort Worth and Downtown Fort Worth, Inc. for championing this project.” Design and engineering partners on the project include: GDA Architects Kimley-Horn (civil engineer) Thornton Tomasetti (structural engineer) Faulkner Design Group (interior design) Rone Engineering of Dallas (geotechnical engineer) Basharkhah Engineering (BEI; mechanical and electrical engineer). SLC’s in-house commercial construction team is serving as general contractor. Additionally, SLC is the landscape architect on the project. https://www.bdcnetwork.com/
  4. Interesting new article: http://www.dmagazine.com/publications/d-ceo/2014/september/why-investors-are-flocking-to-downtown-dallas Huge corporate campuses are being built in the northern suburbs, and Uptown office buildings are securing record-breaking rental rates. But the biggest commercial real estate story in Dallas may be the revitalization of the city’s urban core, where a staggering number of redevelopment projects are setting the stage for a major transformation. Activity is focused on the city’s center, the area between Pacific Avenue and Main, Commerce, and Elm streets. Sales volume in the core is “off the charts,” says Jon Altschuler, partner at Altschuler and Co. Even more noticeable, he says, are the capital improvements new property owners are making. “When I step out of Thanksgiving Tower and head in either direction, it feels like I should be wearing a hard hat,” he says. “There is so much construction activity. Welding, banging, building—you can tell it’s going to be a different streetscape in 18 months.
  5. The DFW is blowing up so to keep things organized this thread will be for anything in the DFW area outside the Dallas or Fort Worth city limits. Feel free to add.

  8. Im watching FOX's pre SuperBowl coverage in Houston. They had an animated segment around 1pm that talked about the history of football in Houston. When discribing some game event they showed an obvious illustration of the Dallas skyline and showing "how Houston was devastated after they lost the game" and the skyline was torn in half. But it was the Dallas skyline. HAHA Sorry I don't have a vid. For us architecture snobs this is a huge faux pas. People in the north think we are the same city. I KNOW Houston must be offended.
  9. I realize this is an architectural site but many times natural geography comes up in city discussions. There are some misconceptions/bashing (especially by those outside the state) that Dallas is completely flat and treeless with no bodies of water anywhere (yes someone from ATL actually told me we have no trees) Seriously? We have one of the largest urban forests in the nation. What kind of drugs are you on? LOL I want to make this thread about the natural side of the Dallas (yes FW okay too )area. Also lakes, hiking and biking trails which we have some of the best! So feel free to share photos. My first photos I would like to share are IN Dallas proper taken in or around the Cedar Ridge Preserve at 7171 Mountain Creek Pkwy, Dallas, TX This first photo might be kind of a shock that it is in Dallas. It sure surprised me. I did my best to verify. Unless they made a mistake. I apoligize for the size. The following photos are 100% verified. Enjoy. http://eveninsilence.files.wordpress.com/2010/04/9475_landscapecrp1.jpg
  10. Due to Dallas' growing presence in the film industry, I've decided to dedicate a thread to any cinematography either filmed in or set in Dallas.
  11. GFF has comprised a master plan for The Canyon, a 211-acre mixed-use development. Sitework and construction on hotels and apartments have been underway. View map here.
  12. This one is really cool. http://www.wfaa.com/videos/news/local/dallas-county/2015/09/10/unique-light-display-in-dallas-arts-district/72049026/
  13. Everyone is always speaking of Uptown Dallas developments and how its coming along as far as urbanity. A certain member pointed out in another thread that Houston's TMC has similar developments as Uptown Dallas urbanly speaking. For one thing, the light rail runs right through TMC and there are booming projects. Although it's just in the field of Medical research (how boring!). But which developments are better UT or Medical Center?. Houston also has nearby Midtown and Musuem District, and Rice Village to add to the area. So on a large scale, which city is more developed? Gimmie some thoughts.
  14. Brand New has an article about the new official logo for Dallas. Linky: http://www.underconsideration.com/brandnew/archives/dallas.php?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+brandnewthebside+%28Brand+New%3A+The+B-Side%29 And there's a video, too...
  15. GlobeSt has the story of a new 17-story residential tower at 3030 Carlisle in Dallas called The Taylor: Linky: http://www.globest.com/news/12_339/southwest/multifamily/StreetLights-Residential-Breaks-Ground-on-First-Multifamily-Property-321041.html
  16. So I've recently seen where this building is getting new black glass windows placed in front of what appears to be the railed balconies. Anybody know whats going on? Have they sold to another hotel chain, or are they just updating the over all look? Is it for safety reasons, has something happened to make them to block off the balconies like this?

  18. Dallas looks good as HQ site North Texas already has a stable of high-profile corporate headquarters, and it's in a good position to woo more as companies seek to move from expensive areas to cheaper ones, a New Jersey relocation consultant says. Of 30 major U.S. cities, the Dallas-Fort Worth area offered the fourth-lowest annual operating cost for corporate headquarters, according to a recent study by John Boyd, head of the Boyd Co., a relocation consulting firm based in Princeton, N.J. http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dw...hq.35a845d.html Read closely and see if you can find the "Dallas Mathematics" equation.
