Saw this on the news this morning:

Development plans for Valley View mall unveiled | wfaa.com Dallas - Fort Worth

I've never been to this mall, but this sounds like good news if it works out.

'Midtown' is such a poor choice for a name.

Imagine this a far north development wanting to be like Legacy in Plano. Unlike the Nebraska furniture mart which has enough money to implement its plans, I will wait and see how this vision is funded to believe their vision. I hope it is true but easy to draw pictures on paper harder to find money to build reality.

It would be great for the area if they can pull it off.


Funniest thing in the article though:

"They said the closest comparison to Dallas Midtown would be The Shops at Legacy in Plano or The Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff."

LOL! Those two areas aren't alike at all.

So very true about the money. I'd be happy if they just tore the whole thing down and built a park. Its not like the Dallas area needs another mall, but anything that improves what is currently there is a plus imo. Lets see if it actually happens. The Fox affiliate is where I saw this story this morning. They seemed to think construction could start in May if it gets approval and zoning things changed.

I had the same thought!

Guess if I'd have searched for midtown instead of valley view I would have found it...oh well.

There is a meeting tonight about this redevelopment at the Westin I think. Probably why it made the news this morning.

And Midtown does seem like a dumb name for something that far north.

Awesome! DFW has a bright future ahead and this is another step in right direction. I hope funding comes through.
