In the future, I can envision companies choosing to relocate to neighborhoods in central Dallas instead of what was the case back when they would choose buildings in downtown Dallas or what had yet to become Uptown. Like Omni's recent choosing to relocate along Maple for example.
Really, as downtown Dallas becomes less of an office market and as more office buildings are built outside of it spread out about the central Dallas vicinity as a whole, the area is developing into something more akin to the suburbs. What feeds this wide open growth is the huge amount of property set aside years ago for warehouses and industrial development which are being replaced by newer buildings in better situated areas along by-passes. In every direction, developers are able to build in order to keep prices down by moving from area to area developing here and there, just as they do in the suburbs, while waiting for over-heated real estate to cool off. The area isn't hemmed in like central Toronto, to give just one example, and it is becoming well transitioned together by the use of bridges, trains, parks, and so on.

What do I think? I think DFW Airport Mall of America should concentrate more on making billions for the metropolitan area as a whole rather than just millions in taxes for the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth.

Okay, but what does Lakewood have to do with being the next Uptown? It is obviously surrounded by that pompass ass crowd of folks who like capitalism, development, and change just as long as it is happening in someone elses neighborhood. Why did you even right this article for cripes sake? Even Preston Center stands a better chance of getting development than this place. In my opinionn, the next Uptown has a better chance of happening out at Valley View and the Galleria which is located a good distance from a pretty neighborhood.

Those corrupting downtown and central Dallas as a whole need to give it up as a toy and do some soul searching instead. Instead of dictating to the people to live in this home, to shop in that store, and to play in yonder park, they should be allowed, as people are in New York City and Paris, to do whatever makes them happy.
