Agreed it will give a little more height to uptown and help to balance out the skyline when viewed from the west.

Emporis says it will be 375ft. Same as Azure(?)

But check this out there's another proposed at the same height? Called the VII at Harwood (Office tower)..hmm.

Once I finally finish my degrees in engineering and logistics I plan on working for the Texas Central, and hopefully rise up the corporate ladder.

Meanwhile, I have provided you guys with a county by county map showing the current contenders for a possible route for the system.

Grand Prairie starts design work on new $75M water park-anchored development
Quote:
Grand Prairie has gotten underway on the design of the city's new $75 million development anchored by an indoor-outdoor water park, which the city hopes will help it become an entertainment destination.

The design work begins shortly after Grand Prairie and developers announced grand plans for a $215 ski resort and Hard Rock Hotel in October.
Quote:
The initial part of the $75 million development includes a 70,000-square-foot indoor portion of the water park will include a retractable roof for play year-round, with 3.5 acres of outdoor space.

The remainder of the year-round development, known as The Epic, will include a 120,000-square-foot life center, amphitheater, trail system and playground in Central Park at State Highway 161 and Arkansas Road.

Ultimately, Grand Prairie will add new rides and slides in future phases of the project, which will anchor Grand Prairie's Central Park.

$1B Frisco development near new Cowboys' HQ to include Perot's Hillwood Properties

Quote:
A development team that includes the Perot family’s Hillwood Properties and auto sales giant Van Tuyl are joining forces to build a more than $1 billion development in Frisco.

The almost 250-acre project will wrap around the Dallas Cowboy’s new headquarters and retail complex under construction at the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway.

Hillwood and the Van Tuyl family’s VanTrust Real Estate are partnering with the Rudman family, which has owned the site for more than 50 years.

The project marks Hillwood’s first major play in the booming Frisco market.

Their new project – called Frisco Station – is planned as a dense, urban-style development similar to the State Farm Insurance CityLine complex under construction in Richardson and the Legacy West complex that’s planned in Plano.

I think Rout 3 would be the best.

BNSF option 4 makes more sense to me. It certainly is more track mileage. However, if the ultimate plan is to connect all the major cities of Texas, including Austin and San Antonio, in a "triangle" then this route makes sense because right where the line curves south east from Italy, Tx is where a future connector can be built traversing southward to Austin and San Antonio. At least this way we can also include Waco in the mix.

Two routes have been selected. I'm quite excited about these two options as I live within a five mile proximity from the utility option. It is now a 50 50 coin toss between these two options:

Very cool. I was under the impression, however, that they planned on running the HSR through College Station? Any insight as to why that isn't happening?

The building site is located right across the street from where the Toronto-based firm intends to construct a22-story, 60-unit condominium building at building at 2505 Turtle Creek Boulevard.

Great Gulf is one of North America’s biggest builders of residential towers. The company has said it wants to do more than one project in the Dallas area.

If they're already planning another project it very well could mean that they intent on starting that first one soon. Here's the rendering of the first one for those not familiar with it.

i was thinking the same thing actually, but this project was announced before a lot of other projects that are currently under construction such as blue ciel, the street lights tower near the federal reserve, the skyhouse in victory park, the jlb tower etc. etc. Hopefully they announce a start date soon. Its a very good looking building and its on turtle creek, Im looking foward to it being built.

College Station was betting for a station in their town but the HSR is only going to be a connector for Dallas and Houston, at least in this beginning stage of its evolution.

Okay, that makes sense. I know there is a lot of talk about other HSR projects in Texas as well, specifically extending the HSR from Dallas to DT Fort Worth via a stop in Arlington or DFW, as well as another proposal to run HSR from Monterrey, Mexico to OKC via San Antonio/Austin corridor.

I can almost guarantee that once this line is constructed and once the Dallas and Houston corridor starts earning enough revenue to pay off its debt we will see massive expansions. Of course this could be in the late 2020s. Which sounds lame, but for me that's cool since I want to be part of the team that designs and builds the lines. Remember, unlike other projects this will be the first privately funded high speed railroad in the world. So it has to prove itself financially lucrative first before expansions can even be considered. Lucky for us the Japan Bank for International Cooperation is now making a deal with the Texas Central to finance the lines construction. So depending on how well that deal goes we might see construction start by 2017.
