The development lost all credibility for me when midtown was highlighted among London, Paris and NY. It's much closer in scope to International Dr in Orlando. I hope they do a better job selecting designers than they did selecting an animation production company.

I disagree, International Dr. would be closer to Beltline in Addison. This will resemble things like West Village in Dallas, The Grove in Los Angelas, and Santa Monica Place, but it will be more modern in design. OMNIPLAN the Dallas based architectural firm that also designed Santa Monica Place is doing this project as well. It will look great, and have more residential and office space, as opposed to just retail. I just wish there were less roads running through it, but this is a busy area.

I see something more like this:
Santa Monica Place

Default As city looks to remake Valley View-Galleria area, check-cashers, pawn shops and (some) big boxes zoned out

Quote:
Long story short, said Chacko: The area will be divided into seven subdistricts, each “walkable.” Pawn shops and check-cashing business will no longer be allowed; neither will drive-thrus and retailers larger than 7,600 square feet in four of nine proposed subdistricts
^^
Love this

Default A not-so-Happy Meal?

I'm sure very few people will miss the check cashers and pawn shops, but it'll almost be a shame if that McDonald's at LBJ and Montfort that's shaped like a Happy Meal falls victim to the new zoning. I almost never eat at Mickey D's, but this particular one brings a smile to my face whenever I pass it..which isn't a bad thing to be smiling while driving on LBJ, especially now.

Oh, ye of little faith

There will be much more to smile about, if this all goes as planned
