In Topic: Amazon in search of 2nd headquarters

....I will add, the dedication to Fort Worth revealed by individuals like renamerusk is a big part of what will keep downtown Fort Worth step for step in the running as the bidding process labors on, bias or not!


 Thank you Tamtagon; those are kind words. The great thing about Fort Worth is that there are many individuals beyond myself that are genuinely dedicated to Fort Worth. I am glad to be among them.


I agree with your intention to avoid a "flame storm" between Dallas and Fort Worth.  I try to remember that the two cities are not enemies; but that they are fierce and proud competitors.  Dallas is blessed with having such a bountiful supply of developers and big time dreamers.  Perhaps someday, Fort Worth will be similarly blessed.

The headline "Why Dallas may be the best place for Amazon's second headquarters" is inappropriate for a Fort Worth newspaper.



IS it still a "Ft. Worth newspaper" these days...?


 Great question.  When we have to ask, then the doubt may be reasonable. 


It is easy to be hyperbolic about S-T's detachment of itself from the City, but it must be called out when it becomes normal for the ST do so.  Printed media is under a lot of pressure, but loyalty to a city and remaining one of the staunches institution of Fort Worth should never be sacrificed for readership. When one is not a bit narcissistic about oneself, usually, no one else will be.


It was a dark day back then when the newspaper chose to erase "Fort Worth" from its standard bearer.  The consequences of that decision have been that occasionally the paper is humiliatingly referred to as the Dallas Star Telegram. :eek:

In Topic: Talbott-Wall House 915 Samuels Avenue

Yesterday, 12:58 PM

As a resident since 2006, I've noticed that long term residents on the north end of Samuels still call it Rock Island and I think many of them scorn the effort to rebrand the area. I have also heard it called The Point or Live Oak Point due to the numerous trees and the oxbow geography....


I am with the long term residents. I like Rock Island.


So I was confused when both Dallas' Legacy Capital and Stone Hawk Capital along with the FWBP announced that new apartments were planned for the Trinity Uptown area.

Is the correct way to refer to the Samuels Avenue/Pioneer Cemetery  Neighborhood now Trinity Uptown?


I always understood it to be Rock Island.

In Topic: "Left Bank"

Yesterday, 12:02 PM

I don't see any "high-rise hotel" in the depictions on their website.  It mentions a national brand hotel and I get that it could be 150 to 300 units.  How high a rise in an area where tower construction is frowned upon by the elitist museum stakeholders?  Not more than 12 stories, I'm guessing.


Initially, I looked for a depiction of a high rise and there is not one.  The mentioning of the high rise is 40 seconds into the where it is written into the video.
