For promoting a "Walk to Life" lifestyle, a lot of the high-rise development in Uptown has a pretty dismal pedestrian experience, with giant carports and landscaped setbacks instead of inviting storefronts. There are a few exceptions, but for the most part the pedestrian experience is lacking for such a major city.
Downtown around Main Street, and parts of McKinney are far more walkable than some of these newer, larger developments. I love the density they add, and how they're building a skyline further to the north, but they really need to work on how their designs meet the street. Especially when touting the concept of "Walk to Life".
"Then each time Fleetwood would be not so much overcome by remorse as bedazzled at having been shown the secret backlands of wealth, and how sooner or later it depended on some act of murder, seldom limited to once."
