Pretty much just posting what everything I post here but a bit more streamlined. Felt like there's a bit of missing link without often Fort Worthology posts and wanted to share a bit more of the pics, renderings, etc I post elsewhere. 

Follow me here,

I know, what's up with that? FWology was back on FW Weekly for 6 months and then gone again...

Thanks for pointing me toward his tweets, or I may never have seen them. Sorry to see Kevin doesn't have his login anymore for here. His perspective on several issues altered my thinking over the years- when is the last time that you could say that about something on the internet!

Some other miscellaneous tweets I've posted that didnt get posted on the forums as well.

 

Parents in urban neighborhoods probably can't use "I'll make you walk home" as a threat nearly as much as suburban parents.

 

 

Downtown generated 62 million in property taxes in 2015. Downtown is 560 acres or so. Curious how much 560 acres of suburbs would generate.

 

Another user did some number crunching, "1/4 acre per McMansion. $20k per year per McM, lets say 45 mil. (Assuming all housing)."

 

Really shows how profitable downtown is, considering a large amount of thata 560 acres is roads, churches, parks, govt facilites and other areas of land who are not paying property taxes, where as the 45 mil number is nothing but property. 

 

According to the SoDT, there are 48,000 people employed in downtown Fort Worth, and 42,000 parking spaces. Overkill? 

 

If you traveled from Ol' South pancakes to the Botanic gardens, you'd cross under or through 27 lanes of traffic in a quarter mile journey.

 

When Urban Fort Wayne and I found each other and had a stepbrothers moment,
