Great pics! Lots of Dallas love lately and rightfully so! A thread where no one can come in and say "where are all the people"

Looks like an actual city with all those people walking downtown. That old building with all the turrets was stunning! I had no clue Dallas had those buildings downtown. Well done.

Thanks, there are still a few late 1800's and early 1900's buildings around in the west side of downtown and in the Deep Ellum neighborhood. The building that is pictured is the old red courthouse, built in 1892 and is definitely the most elaborate of the bunch. Though, nothing like the northeast, the walkability of Dallas is definitely improving in downtown, uptown and a few other areas.

The building is from 1892, the clock tower on the building is less than 10 years old. Old Red had foundation issues back in the 30's and the original clock tower was torn down.

The Catholic church on Ross Street also had it's bell tower recently re-erected.

I don't know why I'm saying this... I just am.

BigcityD. I was fascinated with the city back in the 60s after seeing pics with all those new(back then) bank building towers: Republic, First National, Mercantile, and Southland Life. Now they're almost hidden in a sea of talls. Thanks for the tour.

The skyline is constantly changing these days. Four new highrise projects have been announced this week alone.
