Thread: Residential developments in Dallas/Chicago

  1. #1

    Residential developments in Dallas/Chicago

    I am interested in learning more about certain communities in the States, and they are:

    Addison Circle in Dallas
    State Thomas in Dalls
    Dearborn Park in Chicago
    Museum Square (at Central Station) in Chicago
    (i'm uncertain if these names are correct).

    Any kind of information- weblinks, statistics, developer's name, maps- would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Yes I do know a little bit about the State of Thomas and Addison Circle in Dallas. I have the maps of both and could scan them and mail them to you... I recently visited both, they are great areas, but my problem with them is they are somewhat exclusive. Why can't developments similar to these be created for the middle to upper-middle income ranges.

    I believe the State of Thomas area had 12 developers / owners in the area. It is fairly large area that was dilapidated prior to the project...

    Like I said I do have the maps of the area and could email them to u if you would like... Another interesting place I just visited (in Dallas area) is Legacy Trails, it is a Campus/Mixed Use area for EDI. When completed it will have many characteristics similar to Addison Circle and State of Thomas.
