Newly open area in between downtown and the Stockyards with riverwalks/canals and an urban lake? Oh I'm sure development wont be too much of an issue.

Those buildings that you're seeing in the renderings are called "place holders". They're just there to give you an idea of what's supposed to be built there.

A new 230+ unit apartment project which includes and 11 story bluff slope tower (overlooking the Trinity River in the 600-700 west-side block of Samuels) is due to break ground by Carleton Properties in October. But development in the proposed town lake basin is still years, if not decades away. The delay is not from developers; I'm sure once the Corps of Engineers/Trinity River Authority completes the flood control portion of the project (including construction of bridges, flood control gates, channel dredging for the lake, etc.) then a development boom will commence which could rival the scale of the West 7th Street corridor boom of recent years. A downtown Lake below and north of the Courthouse Bluffs will quite likely be a major downtown draw especially if the new development is higher-end in nature. But for now, project work is inching along towards that distant goal and in 10 to 20 years the Lake basin development boom might be in full swing. (or it may not, depending on many unpredictable factors that can come into play during such a long timespan) That's the best interpretation of the TRV plans I've been able to come up with-yours may differ, of course.
