And I thought that these threads about Dallas vs Fort Worth where gone lol, Dallas and Fort Worth are good, Dallas has the Big city feeling and Fort Worth has the Small town feeling which is also good, both cities light up the sky at night, both cities are a live during the night, but I have to admit Dallas has a better skyline than Fort Worth, kinda because I also love downtown Fort Worth at night,well long story short I can't decide which one is better lol they both have different styles and feelings to there downtown I like both

I think that sums up my feelings about the Dallas vs Ft Worth thing as well, from my (admittedly limited) experience.

Can't wait to see it! Should be getting finished (exterior anyway) about the time we finally make it there! Love it or hate it, this building is a recognized and treasured example of Mid Century architecture by those in the field and those with a bent for this type of thing.

Default Why isn't Downtown Dallas nice like Downtown Fort Worth?

Because DT Dallas needs " infill badly " and DT Fort Worth does not...it's a perfect small compact downtown.

They have a "Sundance Square"..... it's called The West End.

Again, DTFW is not JUST Sundance Square, people. And believe it or not, Fort Worth also has a few issues that need to be fixed for downtown, just like any other city in the country.
