Yeah, and what happened? Market forces now determine what gets built in Dallas...like everywhere else. If you're worried about bubbles, I'd recommend a trip to China.

Also, keep something in mind..... you can't truly say that Dallas is the 4th largest metro because it's shared with Fort Worth, which has over 700,000 people in the city and more than 2 million on its side of the Metroplex. So it's not like Dallas owns the entire metro area. It just so happens to be the largest of TWO anchor cities.
what about Houston then? Even not considering downtown, Houston has a lot of quite tall buildings, especially in galleria uptown area, and now Memorial city mall area. Doesn't seem that Dallas has as many tall building as Houston.

Yeah... I KNOW that. It's the 4th largest city in the country and is going through another building boom. Dallas isn't nearly as big as Houston, as well.

Population wise: Houston has over 2 million people in city and 6 million in its metro area. Also, Houston doesn't share it's area with another major city, so it's more understandable.

But considering that population doesn't necessarily mean more skyscrapers, Houston has certain factors going for it that Dallas doesn't to build that much.

Always on the defensive, standing up for Fort Worth. I applaud that. It's unfortunate that the metropolitan area is almost always branded as Dallas. The Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area is made up of many more cities which receive almost no recognition such as Lewisville, Arlington, Denton, Irving, Garland which would be respectively sized in any other region. For some reason this area in north Texas is generalized as Dallas and will most likely always continue.

Stunning, the lot across from Williams square is one hell of a location. What are they going to do about the Williams square underground parking exit on the property? But I definitely love how the integrated the rail tracks into Water Street. I can't wait to see the further developments of this project.

Developer Forest City moving ahead with big apartment tower and retail deal in Dallas' Cityplace community

Quote:


Forest City's planned Cityplace project will cost almost $100 million.

After almost a year of planning and negotiations, a new high-rise residential and retail development is moving ahead in Dallas' Cityplace neighborhood.

Ohio-based developer Forest City Enterprises on Wednesday completed its purchase of about three acres at McKinney Avenue and Blackburn Street.

The vacant block will be used to build...

Real estate boom under way in Dallas’ Oak Lawn district



Quote:
A bulldozer stayed busy clearing land this week as construction proceeds on Ilume Park, a new apartment project being built in Oak Lawn. The neighborhood has become a magnet for developers with plans for housing, office and retail projects.

Uptown gets all the attention, but there’s a real estate boom in Dallas’ neighboring Oak Lawn, too.

Developers are kicking off construction on a handful of large apartment projects, and more are in the works.

“It’s going to be an up-and-coming spot for more people to live,” said Brian Tusa,

How are we overbuilding? There's actually a demand for high rises. That's why a lot of the projects were put on hold until now.

Water Street project gets approval from Irving City Council

Quote:
By Candace Carlisle, Staff Writer
Date: Friday, September 7,2012, 2:35pm CDT

Irving's recent city council approval for the Water Street project — a mixed-use retail and residential project on a high-profile 14-acre site at O'Connor Road and Las Colinas Boulevard — has Atlanta-based developer Gables Residential planning to begin construction early next year.

"Our goal is to break ground in early 2013, but that all depends on the next few weeks," said Katy Slade, the Gables Residential development director overseeing Dallas-Fort Worth, in a recent interview with the Dallas Business Journal prior to Thursday's City Council meeting.

By the developer breaking ground early next year, the first apartment units could be completed by 2014, she said.

The project includes more than 55,000 square feet of new retail space and about 300-350 luxury residential apartments. The retail and residential project is located across the street from Williams Square and alongside Lake Carolyn.

Irving selected as site for $105 million proton facility

Quote:
By Bill Hethcock, Staff Writer
Date: Friday, September 7,2012, 12:44pm CDT

Irving will be the site of a $105 million proton therapy cancer treatment complex to be built and operated by Baylor Health Care System, Texas Oncology and McKesson Specialty Health, the companies announced today.

The proton therapy facility — one of two planned in North Texas — is expected to make the Dallas-Fort Worth area a destination for world-class cancer care services. There are now only 11 proton therapy centers operating in the United States. M.D. Anderson in Houston has the only other proton therapy facility in Texas.

Project representatives expect construction to begin on the 50,000-square-foot facility in 2013 and anticipate the first patients to be treated in the advanced cancer treatment complex in late 2015.

But that's just it.

They don't really need that much of anything. At least, when it comes to a super tall...

The time will come when the BOA will be surpassed. For now it's great.

Sometimes I fantasize about the AON tower being pulled right up from Chicago and dropped in Dallas right around where the Dallas aquarium is. I think it would make the skyline absolutely perfect. But that of course, is just a dream.

Crow Holdings Expanding its Old Parkland Campus

Quote:
By CHRISTINE PEREZ September13th, 2012 2:11pm

With existing buildings at full occupancy, Crow Holdings has begun work on an 110,000-square-foot addition to Old Parkland, its exclusive office campus off the Dallas North Tollway at Oak Lawn and Maple avenues. Three new buildings will be developed on the west side of the project.

Construction has already begun on an underground parking garage; next up is development of two of the planned buildings. Parkland Hall will total about 50,000 square feet; Commonwealth Hall will total about 30,000 square feet. A third, to-be-named office building will also total about 30,000 square feet and will be built after the first two fill up.

Construction is expected to take about 18 months. Beck Architecture is designer on the project. The general contractor for the parking component is Brasfield & Gorrie. The construction contract for the office buildings has not yet been awarded.
