I hadn't heard anything recently about the Houston viaduct but I've been wondering with the street car and the new I-30/I-35 construction going on a refurbishment of the bridge couldn't be too far away.

North Dallas project that stalled during recession is about to kick off with new construction

Quote:
A sprawling North Dallas redevelopment project that has been stalled for more than five years is about to see a flurry of construction.

The pending projects will be the first development in the 83-acre Midtown Park, which was started almost 10 years ago on Meadow Road just east of North Central Expressway.

Two development sites in the project have just sold to builders and several more transactions are about to close.

“We have basically sold everything,” said Leon Backes, head of Provident Realty, which is development partner with Missouri-based Kroenke Holdings, which owns the land. “This time next year there will be a huge amount of construction going on over there.

“It will transform that whole area.”

Renovations will bring two 1980s buildings into the 21st century

Quote:



Two downtown Dallas skyscrapers that have been stuck in the 1980s are being brought into the new century with dramatic redos.

Remodeling will begin in the coming weeks on the 34-story KPMG Centre at 717 N. Harwood St. and the 50-story Thanksgiving Tower at 1601 Elm St.

The multimillion-dollar makeovers of the two aging office towers will be among the most ambitious renovation projects to date in downtown.

Both buildings are being revamped to accommodate thousands of workers moving into Dallas’ central business district.

“Our vision is really to bring some new life into this building both by way of renovation and new tenants,” said Sheena Paul, vice president of World Class Capital Group, which owns KPMG Centre. “The building is definitely stuck in the ’80s.”

For an update about the Texas HSR corridor between Houston and Dallas, the developers have come down to three possible routes but are waiting for an environmental study to be complete. As for funding, here is the news:

According to the TCR CEO, Richard Lawless, the Japan Bank for International Cooperation participated in “an exhaustive study” of the Dallas-Houston line and is willing to back the project. It’s expected to provide up to half the debt financing for the Texas line, with “extremely attractive” interest rates, he said. The loan could be $3.5 billion or higher, depending on the final costs and debt-to-equity structure. (This is as of November 2014) The bank also has the authority to throw in an equity investment in high-speed rail, a provision that was adopted in 2012, he said.

It will interesting to see how the airport lobbyists will try to sink the project. I am excited to see an alternative transit method appear in the US, I am convinced if this project is done right, that Americans will adopt rail as a new form of medium distance transit.

Mostly likely, they won't.

Much of the animosity was Southwest's inability to serve many other markets (with the Dallas-Houston route being their major bread winner). I think whatever legislation that restricted them from servicing other routes has/will lapse.

Not to mention they'd probably like to free up any space they can to serve long-distance and Int'l routes.

What I wonder is whether there is enough differences in service for Houston to pull would-be-PAX from Dallas and/or vice versa. Doesn't seem likely (save some destinations that are served non-stop by one and not the other), but it's a thought.

Update on the Old Parkland project. Apparently, there is a new structure being built in between the campus west expansion and the back of the expanded portion of the original building. I believe it will be restaurant space and a debate hall, but I'm not really sure. It also looks like they are building a really nice fountain connecting with the arcade, also adjoining with the new west campus. What I do know, is that the architects behind this project are all about constructing quality, classical real estate. They are the real deal. Just take a look at some of their previous works: http://www.dgparchitects.com/

Old Parkland renderings here: http://www.dgparchitects.com/portfol.../old-parkland/


The new domed structure:







Debate Chamber?



Possible restaurant:



Additional pictures of the project:









It's a bummer that the public can't see this and enjoy this campus. But then again, they have some priceless items over there.

they are not playing around with that campus. Incredible how they keep squeezing more goodness into that campus. Looks really incredible from the outside.
