people are simply trying to ignore all the progress in dallas and keep in the same little stereotypical box from the past only because they see and are afraid of what Dallas is about to become.....I cant wait until people face the fact that Dallas is changing for the better.....all of the flaws that people point out are all being worked on....and people hate it.

Afraid of what its about to become?

Dallas will always be just that, Dallas.

IMO they need to start from scratch with their law enforcement officials from the chief of police on down to the rookies they hire on. I've personally never had a run in with DPD, but everyone has all heard & seen the scandals that have risen about over the past 9 or so years. Its a disgrace really a city like Dallas can't even have a competent police force to protect & serve its own people.

The height might be 580 ft if you add the glass wall.

I think I can compare Dallas to Fort Worth anytime I very well please and good for Dallas.

You can do that. I could not care any less. However, it is ILLOGICAL to compare the two because they are nothing alike and they are built differenty and build differently.

Really it's only been over the last five years that Downtown has been revitalized, now uptown that's a different story.

Let's come to a medium and say 10 because the change from vacant office buildings to residential units started as early as 2000.

Yeah, but I'm really talking about when people really started living downtown in larger numbers. That's one of the main reasons the city started going after all the downtown clubs that were well know for crime four years ago.

I do think that DtD and DTFW are in different leagues... a busy bustling DTFW would still NOT be on the same level as a quiet life-less dtd. Thats because dtd offers more options on every aspect. Even if the streets didnt have a single sole on them....so in other words...foot traffic is only a small fraction of a vibrant central core....retail options play a bigger part. And FtWorths DT options are no where near Dallas'
