True. The city really dropped the ball on that one, that's why they we're afraid to intervene. Luckily the association did and won. Here's the article if anybody wants to read more on that. Surprise ruling imperils long-planned Sam's Club near downtown Dallas

Dallas highrise developers need to step up their game like this developer is doing. Every building should be unique and interesting.

Here is a heat map of urban residential developments proposed or under construction in and around central Fort Worth with a minimum of 15 units. The total number of units in this area is around 8,800.



The bright red node is part of the 1,200 units going in as part of Left Bank.

The far west area is the new developments as part of the River District.

A large cluster is going on along Summit with a few different developments totalling around 1k units in that area.

The Samuels Ave/Hillside area has approx 1,200 units going in over a few projects.

The northeast corner of Near Southside has around 1,300 units going in the area around the rebuilt S. main street.

A few areas have "visions", most notably the Trinity River Vision which proposes a full build out of 10k units. Projects on the map are only projects which have been recently and seriously proposed.

1. 12 story building gets demoed in dense/urban area.
2. City changes zoning as suited for developer.
3. Developer proposes suburban shopping center.
4. Neighbors take issue with this. Demand city intervene.
5. City declines to intervene to avoid getting sued by developer.
6. Local Association forms and sues Developer
7. Association wins. That's where we're at now.

Thanks for the history on this, guys. I'm glad to hear that the suburban-style development fell through. I agree that Sam's isn't the enemy of urban design - they could definitely fit in if designed appropriately for that part of town. Same with Target and other stores.

I live in China and we have a Walmart across the street. It takes up the 2nd and 3rd floors of a 5-story building in a large, pedestrian-oriented shopping and residential area. It's a five minute walk from my place. I came from a small town in Central Texas where the parking lot of Walmart could rival the size of Rhode Island. It's cool to see how stores can adapt to different environments if they really want to.

If that is the true rendering for AMLI Fountain Place, then Dallas is getting a knockout residential skyscraper. It's rare to see a residential tower that actually looks good and compliments a global icon such as Fountain Place.

I would say this will probably start a new trend of iconic developments.

I hope so. The highrise apt tower at Park District is such a missed opportunity.

Museum Tower was a great addition to the city. It was one that was done right also.

I was in Dallas and Ft Worth over the past few days and the amount of construction is pretty staggering. Uptown Dallas has made a huge impact on the skyline and feel of downtown.

So true and there's just this underlying feeling that this is just the beginning of even more.

Cityplace tower has been dark for the last couple of weeks now.. tonight I noticed it is light up again and it looks like the lights are white rather than yellow. I am glad it's back! I am loving it!

Noticed that, too.

The new lights appear to be LED.

Very cool!

Let's hope the Chase tower will go back to a better lighting concept once Chase moves to Plano.

Is that the CVS with the world's worst purposeful landscaping and unnecessarily large parking lot between Fitzhugh and Bennett?

Always wondered if those Apts and Townhomes have a great view of downtown and Uptown.

Yes this is that CVS, I believe CVSs' like Starbucks are the most bittersweet retail growth in the central Dallas area due to them adding neighborhood amenities but having little regards for urban impact whenever possible. Luckily the trends by these companies don't seem to be unique to Dallas, the city just needs to do more to stop things like this.

That proposed AMLI tower is above and beyond a better design than their craptacular shitblock we got in Chicago. Congrats, it's gorgeous!

Irving developer to begin new luxury community near Las Colinas' Lake Carolyn

The 286-unit high-end community, called Jefferson Eastshore, will sit blocks away from the soon-to-open Irving Music Factory and the Water Street mixed-use development upon completion of construction, which is slated for fall 2018.
