#107747 Western Center Tower III

Posted by Jeriat on 11 December 2017 - 12:39 AM


... The top floor will contain a residence.


Am I only one that thinks having a residence on the top floor strange, particular in this locale?



I'm questioning that, as well.

Outside of the smaller apartments in the surrounding area, it wouldn't seem that would be a high-rise apartment type of neighborhood. 

#107597 New Isis to be Refurbished??

Posted by Jeriat on 01 December 2017 - 12:45 AM

Good news, but this theater seriously needs to drop the unfortunate name.

I want to say no and point out that Isis was a thing long before... You know who.

But there are a lot of very ignorant people in this sta...er, world, and it may wind up changing anyway because of it.

I think the location is great.  A little bit removed from downtown's core (Also: See Henderson Street) but may have the best views in town.  


I believe "the core" is about to expand... finally.

Really need to work on the Upper Westside, next.

Understand that. Also, good to hear there's potentially another project proposed, I'll bet it's also Zamco,


Poking around TAD, the same ownership group owns 3/4 the block the block due south,  along Belknap. There's a 2 story law office w green tile roof and a parking lot out front which they don't have.



  A high rise apartment tower?


 Funny; we were guessing what area would be the next "uptown".  This corner (River x Henderson x Belknap) could be just the one.



I'm the one who asked that question and forgot what my own answer was...

Kinda like the color scheme. 

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

This has to be a different building.

That looks much taller than 24 floors...

#107409 Tarleton State University plans 80-acre campus in Far SW FW

Posted by Jeriat on 20 November 2017 - 04:32 PM

The labels of Fort Worth and Dallas are placed incorrectly on the first two maps. Fort Worth and Dallas are placed over Denton and McKinney. :unsure:
Looks like a nice campus, but I don't like the rural location or lack of transit. Guess they can't help that.

What Doohickie said, and that "rural" location wont look very rural a few years after all of that is built.

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

#107114 Downtown Design Guidelines

I don't mind logos on towers at all. In fact, I'd prefer that SOME of them have one. I think it just depends on the building's style.

#106938 8-4-1 Rail Plan (Designs)

Posted by Jeriat on 27 October 2017 - 10:18 PM


(BTW, I meant for this to be commuter, like TEXRail.)


Phase I:

- Begins at the tracks near PetSmart @ Montgomery Plaza, creating a station there
- Travels across Trinity River to site near the MAGIC costume store for the "Forest Park" station.

- Running under the CTP/I-30 bridges, a new track splits from the existing and curving underneath, connecting to tracks that run east & west and the T&P Station. 
- Runs on tracks to ITC, then heading south, connecting to tracts that run towards Rosedale. 

- Using one of the overpasses along Rosedale that is not used, new tracks (2) would be built, also creating a station on said overpass.
- Connects to tracks that run near the RaceTrac on Berry, creating a station and Park & Ride there. Follows those same tracks southeast and creating a station on Seminary (near O.D. Wyatt) and two in Forest Hill.


Phase II:


 - This would more than likely be the most expensive phase of the line because it would be all new tracks... and with my thoughts on it, mostly above ground, following Jacksboro Highway. 
 - After the MP stop, the line would continue northwest on that curve hooking away into the industrial area. BUT, it would be cut off in a spot and lifted, passing over the Trinity River, parallel to Jacksboro.
- The overhead tracks run from University/Northside, across 820, and stopping in the space between Charbeneau and Telephone. Not sure if the road is split for a future freeway overpass in the future, but I'm treating it like it will be and having the station on the ground set to where it would fit parking and space for columns. 
- There would be sections where the tracks are on ground level, but it would mostly be overhead. 
- Stations (I'll get into that later...)

Phase III: 


- The third phase would be two stations connecting Kennedale and Mansfield. 
- I'd have the line continue to follow existing tracks.
- The Kennedale station could be on either Dick Price, New Hope, or Averett, all with Park & Ride options. 

- As for the Mansfield station, either stop where Depot St. is (replacing the industrial buildings, creating a Park & Ride) or do something completely radical... split off south from the main tracks, dig underground to downtown Mansfield, and create a subway station underneath one of these buildings.  



Phase IV:

- Self explanatory. This is only IF Casino Beach every really became a reality... as much as my rail suggestion, here.

 So, I added another line... will go into more detail, but this was just something else I had in mind to go along with an old proposal for a line from DTFW to Mansfield.

"Radical designs" would fit best on MagAv and Race.
