A skyline for Arlington?


Recommended Posts

Many cities with far smaller populations than Arlington appear to be more magnificent municipalities than they are because they have something that America's largest midcity lacks: a skyline vista.

But that could change if the Lamar-Collins Overlay District booms as a sort of reinfill mixed-use development just north of Interstate 30 and south of Brown Boulevard, between Collins and Cooper streets.

Council members, seven of the nine anyway, have a vision: They believe that by allowing high-density, multifamily, mixed-use development, an assortment of skyscrapers will punctuate the Arlington sky, creating a pedestrian-oriented glob of jobs, tax revenues and convenient living just down the street from a revamped entertainment district and town center.

Well...maybe...as long as it wouldn't detract from Arlington's current skyline...SIX FLAGS!!! :P

I think this would be nice for Arlington. This is a logical area for it, too, with I-30 right there and all the development already present. There's a *NICE* Whole Foods right there at Collins & Lamar! That's also a very pretty area north of I-30 around Brown Blvd. It's quite hilly in places with lots of beautiful trees, and the AWESOME River Legacy Park System is very nearby. :thumbsup:
