I guess this is the best section of the forum for this question, but:

Which neighborhood do you see gaining the same kind of massive growth (both low-rise and vertically) you see in Uptown Dallas or Buckhead in Atlanta or the TMC in Houston first?

I know it's a loooong way off and depends of several factors, but I thought it would be a decent question to ask.

The West Side is already pretty darn dense and all very new, and it's mostly built out. None of it is particularly tall though. 

 

Near Southside has a lot of room to fill in and grow, but it also doesn't strike me as becoming particularly tall either. I think the hospitals will continue to dominate the Southside skyline.

 

Panther Island, if built as plans show, will be very dense and have a few decent sized buildings. I believe the height is capped at 288 feet, and I'd hope a few buildings hit that. 

 

I'll nominate the upper west side also. The direct connections to downtown & Cultural District is a big plus, it already has some skyscrapers, and it's filling in quickly.

I cast my vote for the UWS also... especially if it was to be further south; like closer to the Sunset Heights area. I think that even mid-sized buildings would add height because the area sits atop the bluff. Also there are a lot of throw away buildings, vacant properties and parking lots strewn about the area. Also, the older buildings in the area (Masonic temple, public market & 1212 W. Lancaster would add some variety to the area.

I think the area could extend a few blocks E. of Henderson between Lancaster & 7th as well.

I don't count UWS only because I see it as part of downtown. 

But I see what you're saying.

Well I'd truly like it the be West 7th, but I don't think that will ever happen because of the view preservation the museums want to protect and seem to have a clear grasp over the city on.

Time will tell on that one. 

Just look at downtown Austin's "Capitol Corridor"...

I'd like to see the view from the Amon Carter protected. We, the public, can go and see the skyline from there as well.

I'll throw out another option - Clearfork. With how upscale it is and a few of the proposed buildings on the masterplan are a bit taller (in the 5-9 floor range)

Hmm.

I guess I didn't even think of Clearfork. 

 

Maybe because I just didn't think of any kind of possible future rail connection for it. 

Idk. But that is a good one.

But if you add more building doesn't that increase the skyline for us to view. I'm not sure why the Amon wants to preserve it's view of Burnett Plaza. Lol

Well there is a freight RoW between downtown and Clearfork.
