This place



Or this one.

Since that area where the apparent stable is located is on current Botanic Gardens property, I'm wondering if it wasn't a maintenance shed for the gardens.


The urban legend I heard (maybe it's true?) is that the Botanical Gardens are located where the horses for Camp Bowie were kept, since they did such a good job of fertilizing the area.  Maybe that was a stable prior to being a maintenance shed?

If you ask me they look like oversized trash cans.  Not impressed.

Well as long as we get businesses and corporations to relocate here and that helps our citys economic future and our growth in the end does it really matter that we are considered another Frisco. I think our separate identity and our obsession with trying to be recognizable and better than Dallas only matters in a pissing contest and when we want to beat our chest.


Expressing a reasoned opinion?  Why, that's just crazy talk!

But those are just a couple of decorative panels on an otherwise flat roof.

Where is the indoor year-round multi-use natatorium?


You forgot to use the sarcasm font.

Sounds just like something Las Vegas Trail needs (crossover thought).

I take it as a positive.  I've been by there on my bicycle and I thought the plain concrete walls looked ugly.  I assume the brick will tie into the motif of the building; should produce a more unified (if someone imposing) appearance.  It may also help discourage graffiti (which seems much more common on plain concrete walls than brick walls).

#106373 Chisholm Trail economic development

The hotel is nearing completion. 


The bar will apparently be called Wild Pitch, so apparently a sports bar concept.  I wonder if it will be a straight up sports bar or if they will try to challenge nearby Twin Peaks.  They have an advantage over Twin Peaks in terms of access; they are right by the entrance to the development, whereas to get to Twin Peaks you have to drive through an often crowded parking lot near Fudruckers.



Both the hotel and Wild Pitch are now open.


Nearby in Cityview Center, the old Black Eyed Pea is well on its way to becoming a Boomer Jack's.  They have a storefront in the shopping center set up as a hiring office.

What about the only two lanes in each direction from 20 to just south of 30  :-\

Parque Unidad?


I'll allow it.

Sounds logical.


(And for the record, the area I referred to earlier as The Slums of North Crowley is actually known as Meadowcreek.)

That's why I suggested Cityview area in another thread. Near Twin Peaks, Wild Pitch, etc. The only residents there are apartment dwellers who aren't as invested in the area.


Closer to my area, I think it could slip in at McCart & Altamesa or thereabouts.

This is the month the stars go out of alignment and I won't make it.
