I agree. I never thought the previous plan was feasible.

IIRC, the original Smart District plan surface around the time Amazon was hunting for a new HQ2. Perhaps that may have explained why they were so ambitious with their plans.

I'm glad they have revised the plan and now seem to have something more feasible, as you said.

Did they completely do away with the plans to build the tallest building in Dallas?

Probably. It isn't economically feasible.

I'll be honest, if Dallas doesn't build another skyscraper that rivals the tallest one, I'll live. Dallas can become really cool if it densifies its core and removes the parking lots. It is already doing a remarkable job reinventing itself.

No idea. I guess it really depends on what the market demands as this project starts to progress. I do hope they at least get started with the one building for the time building to at least get some action in that part of town.

Agreed. Dallas already has a pretty skyline, but the pedestrian experience still has a long ways to go. I'd much rather see 4-5 smaller towers the replace empty parking lots, rather than hold out for one tall skyscraper which likely wouldn't do too much to make the city more walkable.

Now this really helps with understanding exactly whats about to take place in Downtown Dallas in the next 5 years.

This Guy is My Dallas role model. I will find a way to work with him on something some how.
He gave props to Houston's convention center redevelopment by visiting and taking notes on what ideas he wanted to implement in the new entertainment district that he is now building in Dallas.

Dallas has big plans in place!!!!

I suggest you wath the entire thing because he explains how covid has impacted Dallas and how we will bounce back from it.

The oak Farms district
The Cedars
The Convention Center District
The West End
The Reunion District

These areas are about to TRANSFORM the core of Dallas...and he explains everything in Detail.......ITS GONNA BE AWESOME!!!!!!!

He even reiterated something I've posted in the past(HSR Thread) about how the HSR Stations would have to become a destination within itself.

...And How it would give Dallas and Houston the opportunity to re-invent themselves because the new districts created around the stations would become the new face of the city.

If things come into fruition, Dallas will have such a nice core! It's already decent in places where redevelopment is occurring. But with the sheer amount of land readily available in the CBD, it can change Dallas.

We need to do SMART projects that are walkable, transit-oriented, and destination-worthy. Dallas needs more of that, to be honest.

Most of the development in Dallas core is circling around downtown Dallas, which I think is smart planning. As available land becomes less available on the outskirts of downtown Dallas it’s going to make the downtown region that more attractive. That’s when your going to see some significant height occurring in the CBD. Dallas skyline will be a lot more uniform once all this comes to fruition. Significant height in the middle followed by height reduction the further out you get from the CBD. Another way to put it is Dallas core is for the most part a big circle with the middle of that circle containing the most height.

This is Part II of the State of Downtown Webinar interviewing Shaun Todd. He gives details about the "East Quarter" district and the National Thompson Hotel....Very interesting.
