Don't forget the first two-level Sams Club & Wal Mart combo at Northwest Highway & Skillman in northeast Dallas.

Texas is a major WM market. They named a VP just for Texas last year. I believe we are the only state that is it's own WM region.

Just what Dallas needs. Even more big-box stores.

It is good that they will be bringing sales tax revenue to areas that don't have much
it is just bad that WalMart has the bad habit of grinding down vs raising up
WalMart is about squeezing the most out of its suppliers, workers, the local govt with tax incentives most of the time...
in many ways WalMart is a bane not an aid...

Yea I like the inner loop of Dallas and Fort Worth just fine. There is no need for miles and miles of strip malls like you see in the burbs. Although this particular area does need more development such as this. West Fort Worth and Arlington development patterns are very different. Spade can you explain the development patterns in Chicago. How do they go about not giving off the suburban model style? I always felt the north was more sophisticated in development patterns.
