Topics I've Started

First "Uptown" to BE "Uptown"

15 May 2017 - 07:05 PM

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.

Bus Shelter Design Contest for Near Southside

25 March 2017 - 08:32 AM

Didn't know where else to post this, but there is a bus shelter contest going on for the Near Southside for "professionals AND students", with an April 17th deadline.

I want to enter, but really need to fix my laptop, first.


Just in case anyone was interested.

Future Rail Map*

30 January 2017 - 11:19 AM

I wanted to make a detailed mock Rail Map, so I did. 

I know some of these are just my own personal suggestions, but a little more than half of what you're seeing is based on what's already planned or being built now.

Johnson County Rail/Transit

I was just randomly surfing the net and saw this plan for two TOD's for Burleson... 

This is of course coming off of the plans for a commuter rail line from the ITC to Cleburne, who has their own ITC and I will post later. 

But I wanted to start by focusing on Burleson first. This is part of their TOD Study from 2012. If you haven't seen it, here's the PDF


Just some renders. Looks like they're also wanting to make their own transit center.











Retail on W. Vickery

From "Funky Town Development" 







Developer Funky Town Development is planning to rehab an old automotive building at 3968 West Vickery Blvd., turning it into an approximately 5,000-square-foot mixed-use facility. The building design isn’t finished yet, but developer Trey Neville said the building will have a “sleek” and “modern” design. 

He said he pictures the development to have boutiques and artisan shops. A few tenants are already in talks to lease space. One possible tenant is proposing a sandwich shop, but nothing has been finalized yet, Neville said.

Construction is expected to start in early 2017 and finish later that year, he said.
