I kind of feel like a proud mama whose baby is graduating from high school, with highest honors.
Preston Hollow Village celebrates its Grand Opening this Thursday, June 28th, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Festivities will take place in The Douglas, 7825 Firefall Way, Dallas, TX, 75230. You simply cannot miss the partying.
Preston Hollow Village is, of course, that dynamic and ever-growing mixed use live-work-play miracle center at the intersection of Walnut Hill Lane and Central Expressway, northwest corner. By the way, we learned at NAREE a week ago that one no longer says “shopping center.” You say simply “center”, reason being that’s what these new developments truly are: so very much more than shopping.
Probably you have been to the Trader Joes there, one of the first stores that opened about spring, 2015.
The $300 million plus masterpiece of Preston Hollow Village brought life and tons of tax revenue to one of the most significant corners in the city, and one of the largest infill tracts of land in the Southwest. And this all happened without a dime of taxpayer “economic incentives”.
I recall, because I am so old, the olden days when the 42 acres at Central and Walnut Hill were covered with the Willow Creek Apartments, 1960’s era garden style townhome units that had more than their share of fires and trouble. They did have pleasant ponds where we once freed a pet duck. RIP Tulip the duck.
