#107834 Economic Development Plan

Posted by A_Random_Username on Today, 03:33 AM

 

 

Ironically, we're less and less likely to split into separate metros as long as our employment doesn't keep up with our population growth.

maybe if we just go ahead and split into our own metro, like we should have done 25 years ago, our employment would still be growing. assuming the potential is as high as everyone is saying it is.




#107734 Facebook coming to FW?

Posted by A_Random_Username on 10 December 2017 - 02:00 AM

Could the announcement of additional data centers for Fort Worth's Alliance region (Facebook, T5 Data and others) bode well for Fort Worth's chances at Amazon?  

I believe it will. as with that, could also net us true fiber lines in the city/'burbs as well.




#107484 Mixed-use project at Magnolia & May

Posted by A_Random_Username on 26 November 2017 - 02:39 AM

Kinda like the color scheme. 

It may fit more in South Florida or South Texas, but I like it. 

it is different from the normal brown/copper stuff we are used to for sure. brings a sort of pop in to the city




#107112 Hemphill/Lamar/Taylor Connector project ?

Even more equipment and personel are there, with a substantial amount of dirt gone. Its rather satisfying seeing this type of project happen.


#106508 FW's Next Area to Revitalize?

drove by Victory Park today and across hemphill is a fenced off area. cant remember the exact wording on the sign but it was similar to 'Victory Park Community Projects'. Ill be driving by there again today and will try and get a picture if I can. 




#106496 Elon Musk is teasing Texas again - Hyperloop

Posted by A_Random_Username on 09 October 2017 - 11:29 PM

 

Hyperloop outlines 10 high-potential routes

The US was the country to feature most prominently on the winner's list, with four different routes

connecting a number of major cities. The longest comes from a team called Texas Triangle,

who put forward a proposal that could connect Houston, Austin, San Antonio,

Dallas and Laredo with 1,030 km (640 mi) of tube.

If Fort Worth is not apart of this, then I don't give a damn.

 

I agree.




#106495 TEX Rail project

Posted by A_Random_Username on 09 October 2017 - 11:25 PM

I would love to have better transit options. subways, better bus routes/times (thinking 24/7), better rail options. I would support developments that increased the options and/or improve existing plans. face it, our transit system sucks. we can continue letting it suck as is, and feeling the increase of vehicle traffic, and with that traffic accidents, OR, we can improve it, in turn give something to the developers to bring them in. if this goes through and it does happen to reach down Hemphill towards Seminary, more developers would want to come in and build in town. Id love to see Ft worth as something other than Dallas' little brother, and until we can get the transit system fixed, and developers coming in, we will never be a separate city.




#106431 901 Commerce St. - High-rise Mixed Use

Crews are now doing some work, not quite sure what exactly.


#106377 Another potential Rosedale Apartment

Posted by A_Random_Username on 04 October 2017 - 01:41 PM

Went by the QT off of Rosedale and Hemphill today and noticed several cement mixers and a couple of dump trucks on the property. Noticed some dirt hills building up the past few weeks as well. Assuming this area is the same as mentioned.


The trucks were on the southeast corner of said property, not that that means anything, haha


#106162 FW's Next Area to Revitalize?

With some of the redevelopment occurring along South Main and Hemphill north of Rosedale, I feel that Hemphill south of Rosedale, next to the Fairmount and Ryan Place neighborhoods, could also benefit from redevelopment soon as well.

 

I think Hemphill all the way down from Vickery could really be a nice street. There's a ton of room for development between Biddison and Bolt which is mostly vacant land, industrial, or some gas pads. The whole street is such an important transit corridor to, some proper density could really be beneficial to all the surrounding neighborhoods.

If you take that all the way down to Seminary, the obvious tie-in would be La Gran Plaza.  I would think it would be beneficial to get some "frontage", if you will of La Gran Plaza onto Hemphill to serve as a gateway into the plaza.  The problem is the train tracks effectively cut off the Hemphill piece from La Gran Plaza.

 

I'm not familiar enough with the plaza to know what kind of business would complement what's already there and would serve to draw people in.

 

Maybe for the locals that's not important, but I've ridden and driven up and down Hemphill lots of times and not realized I was only a block from the plaza.

 

I think this would make a nice subway station. could zone it as mixed use with some retail/a few restaurants. there is an international bus station that services to mexico (cant think of the name), Im sure it also services other areas too, it could be the start of something big. another stop could be one or 2 of the surface lots on jones, across from the ITC. that area has UTA, as well as TCU, convention center. add another stop north closer to TCC and we could very well bring in more. put one in the TCU and the TSWBS area and we can market that as easy travel. all of these are ideas, whether good ideas or not, lies in the readers :)

 

EDIT: I live close to this area and is on my daily commute. I can see potential for growth, with or without my idea for a subway. I would also like to see some high rises (higher than 3-5 stories haha. maybe even a small park would help. or a fitness/rec center. ideas and all..hehe

#106127 Residence Inn at "Houston and 8th"

Posted by A_Random_Username on 25 September 2017 - 10:07 PM

New here, (thanks John!) And i would LOVE to see this happen, not for it being an hotel but for a tall building. Would love to see more to be honest.
