My town (Ft. Worth) has so much land and soooooo much potential for several projects. But all the good ones always get shot down. That's why we're stuck with this....
... virtually the same skyline from 1988.
Just a few years ago, our city had the chane to get two towers that could have been the new tallest in the city. One of them would have been in the top ten of the tallest in Texas (say that 5 times fast....). BUT, as usual, they got shot down.
Fort Worth has some good street level projects. But our downtown is already pedestrian friendly.... so why not a skyscraper boom like Austin, or some of the other cities ? All Fort Worth is getting right now are some mini towers, a new hotel tower (the first new one in decades), and a bunch of "don't get your hopes ups
At least we still have the Trinity River Vision
, the biggest project going right now... but it wont be finnished in years....
