The truth is that Houston will never be the city that Chicago is in terms of built environment. It's more like Schaumburg, IL on steroids.

They're not made, their just telling the truth. Chicago and Houston are not in the same tier by any means and it's a joke to think otherwise unless your a serious booster.

Chicago clearly has the most posters on this sub forum, just an observation.

Well it depends on what you consider downtown. If you go by the actual neighborhod of downtown Dallas that is strictly defined by the freeway loop and nothing else bordering it than yes Austin (and also San Antonio) is larger than Dallas and Houston as well.

What doesn't make a difference? Are you insinuating something I didn't say or what?

Why is it bogus? Downtown is set to add almost 5000 apartment units this year alone yet vacancies remain low. And roughly the same numbers are in the pipeline for the coming years.

No city in the country offers the combination of urban/cost-of/living as does Chicago. The previous decades loss was almost entirely blacks moving to the suburbs. The core of the city is surging and I don't see that stopping any time soon.
