    It’s interesting that you touch on this subject. One of the many irregular elements associated with this rezoning is that Trammell Crow somehow managed to get a 20% reduction in required parking due to “walkability.” Here’s the kicker— in their rezoning application, they claim that the “site” is only 1,000 feet from the entrance to the DART Cityplace Station. However, when you actually measure the distance from the front door of the Sam’s Club to the DART station, it actually pencils out to approximately 1/2 mile.

    Once again, it seems that Trammell Crow somehow got some sort of special treatment from City staff… and City staff mislead the City Plan Commission about the distance between this development and the DART station.
