Any suggestions for new sources other than CD obviously?
Thanks in advance
Sorry, but I forgot about this project. Before you think its central Dallas centric, keep in mind that it has 4 pages and is still a work in progress. Gives a great perspective of what's going on though

Thanks for the information. I saw a version in Houston that covered the entire metro area. I think it was prepare by a Houston CD poster but not sure. This is helpful and includes more suburban developments than I initially thought. I am aware of a few major developments that I did not see listed.

Much appreciated however, its nice to see it all in one place and mapping it is ideal. Thanks again.

What is the process to update this source for new developments underway, such as a medical office complex in Frisco along Legacy where Warren intersects it? Also there area couple of Legacy area office projects underway not that I did not see mentioned. Is there lower limit in size to be added? Sources to make additions? I follow development as a hobby and try to stay up to date on West Plano area / Frisco activities that impact my area.

Great job the more I look the more helpful this for my wants

There's a poster at dallasmetropolis that started the mapping project and he's opened it to all. Just click the collaborate button and import. Definitely a work in progress so he is welcoming additions. Can't link the thread here that discusses the map, but it can easily be found with an internet search.

The developer has broken ground for a 347-unit rental complex at Sale Street and Cedar Springs Road, up the hill from Turtle Creek.
It's apart of this project that was posted previously.

Very nice! It's GREAT to see the resurgence of new development, but... Why does there seem to be a ceiling on new buildings in the 20-25 floors range? Why don't developers consolidate development into fewer, but more significant buildings a la 20-30 years ago?? Just askin'...

Height restriction and zoning has a lot to do with it.

Not so fast....the flight restrictions become more strict the farther NORTH you go from DT towards the airport...To.me the sleeping giants are areas south and west of DT(the Cedars and west Dallas river front)....Time will tell in the next couple of decades.

Houston has several over 15 floor towers, office use, going up currently. I can not for the life of me figure out why they do and we do not

In Uptown there's not much height you can build and the zoning laws will not allow a building to be built of an extreme height outside of the urban core.

In Downtown there's no need for a really tall office building. You can building a high-rise office building with much more square footage than one that's over 50 stories tall.
