In the absence of significant state funding, I'd rather see Collin County form their own transit agency to expand rail up that corridor. DART is already spread thin enough trying to service the far-flung suburbs under its existing umbrella, voting in suburbs like Allen and Mckinney would only make the situation worse for central Dallas.

Makes sense to me. Denton County has one that could be expanded if there were enough demand, but CC could also create their own. As long as they all play nice with transfers and tickets, etc., then I think it could absolutely work better than expanding DART farther north.

Uptown building headed for overhaul by Crescent Real Estate



Project Location

Quote:
Developer Crescent Real Estate says it plans a "top-to-bottom redesign" of a 1980s Uptown office tower it purchased earlier this year.
Quote:
Dallas architect Corgan is redesigning the exterior and inside of the granite and glass tower. A new glass tower at the entrance of the building will dramatically change the project.
Quote:
At least one restaurant will be built along Maple Avenue with outdoor patio space.
Quote:
"Our goal is to make 2401 Cedar Springs a part of Uptown, engaging not just the people who work there but those who live, work and play nearby."
Quote:
Construction is expected to be completed in early 2019.

Humphreys architects shoot for simplicity in Uber skyport design



Quote:
For Uber to get its “flying taxis” in the air, the ride-sharing company will need launch-and-land pads — called skyports — to support the futuristic service.
Quote:
At Uber’s second annual Elevate summit in May, six architecture firms presented their designs for what the skyports will look like.

Today, we'll look at the concept from Dallas-based Humphreys & Partners Architects, which is modeled after a beehive because the Uber aircraft around the skyport would replicate a bee’s flight patterns to and from a hive.
Quote:
Prototypes of the Uber aircraft are under development by Fort Worth-based Bell and a handful of other manufacturers nationwide. Dallas developer Hillwood Properties also is working with Uber on the flying taxi program.

UberAIR plans to start demonstrating the technology in 2020 in Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles and Dubai, and start operating the flying taxi service in the three test markets in 2023. From there, San Francisco-based Uber plans to roll out the service in large urban areas worldwide.
Quote:
Humphreys & Partners is one of six design finalists for the project. Other DFW finalists include Dallas-based Corgan, BOKA Powell and Beck, and Duncanville-based Arup.
