Based on the last few comments, I'm surprised there isn't a Brian Vs. Jason thread lol.. No I'm kidding, I agree with the comments that Densitymatters & StPeteNative stated above, and through many of those heated exchanges I have learned quite a bit on this city. Now back to topic... Not sure what the park in Dallas looks like under the interstate, but that's a great way to provide shaded public areas.

I tried to post a picture but I'm technologically challenged and not sure how one would do that from the phone. Google Kylde Warren Park and you will get a lot of pictures.

@gstolze I too would prefer to see the Crosstown reverted to green space. I faintly remember an thread that touched on this topic of using the ROW for transit/biking and walking trails.

Because of the water table and soil here, I don't think burying expressways is really an option.

I don't agree. There are many coastal cities around the world which built subway and street tunnels. Look at the new port tunnel in Miami that shows it is possible in Florida. Just a matter of good engineering.

800 additional (homes) announced for West River redevelopment
Emerald Morrow, 7:10 a.m. EDT October 14, 2015

TAMPA, Fla. (WTSP) -- The Tampa Housing Authority announced plans on Tuesday to add 800 mixed-use homes to the 1,600 already planned for the West River redevelopment project, a $500 million project designed to transform the area.

The redevelopment will take place over the next few years, and will comprise a 194-acre plot of land along the Hillsborough River. The 2,400 homes will be a combination of public housing and market-rate units.

According to the redevelopment plan, the project will require sweeping changes to the current makeup of the area with a goal to "transform distressed public and assisted housing" and to "transform neighborhoods of poverty into viable, mixed-income neighborhoods with access to well-functioning services" including schools, recreation, transportation and jobs.

Sounds like the entire plan is on hold now...one day later.

http://www.tbo.com/news/politics/tam...haul-20151014/

Quote:
But after unveiling the plan in draft form last year, housing authority officials decided the firm’s ideas for the 120-acre site are too suburban and not suited for the urban boom in Tampa’s downtown.



The authority is now paying an additional $280,000 for a new consultant team to redo much of the master plan. Residents this week got a first look at a new plan that includes the addition of 800 more residential units above the 1,600 originally planned. The new plan will feature larger multi-family homes with built-in parking.



“This is a much smarter plan,” said Leroy Moore, the housing authority’s chief operating officer. “Our planners have understood local conditions and made wise decisions.”

So most of us called it out as a terrible plan for being too suburban in an urban location... And here we are, a year later and the planner is fired for crafting a plan that was and I quote, "officials decided the firm’s ideas for the 120-acre site are too suburban and not suited for the urban boom in Tampa’s downtown."

At least we finally put to bed the silly assertions by some that the people calling for better urban development in Tampa are out of touch.

Based on the statement by the housing authority, some are not urban minded enough...

What about Tampa Presbyterian Village, just south of Blake on Green Street? Those aren't included in this plan?

Yeah, I-275 will like double in width through there, biased to the north. At N Blvd, off ramps from I-275 will consume the land all the way to Main. hence the blank spot of land there.

Tampa Housing Authority picks developer for massive West River project
JUN 29, 2016 02:58 PM EDT

A household name in Florida real estate circles has been selected for a massive redevelopment project in West Tampa.

The Tampa Housing Authority on Wednesday announced that it has selected Related Urban Group to redevelop the city's oldest public housing site, North Boulevard Homes and Mary Bethune.

Related Urban is a joint venture between The Related Group and The Urban Development Group, with Related's Jorge Perez and Urban's Alberto Milo Jr. as principals

Quote:
"Under the partnership agreement, at least 820 rental units and 30 percent of the for-sale units will be affordable to families earning less than 80 percent and 120 percent of area median income, respectively," the housing authority said in a statement.
Sounds like as long as Related and Urban meet these criteria they can turn the project into whatever they want.

I wouldn't expect drastic changes but they may consider a waterfront tower.
