Dallas Election News: Early Voting Starts Today, So Here is a Replay of Our Candidate Questionnaires
Get out and vote! Early voting starts today and runs through Friday May 3. Election Day is Tuesday, May 7. You can find early voting locations here.
This year we did something a little different here on CandysDirt.com: We sent out candidate questionnaires to every Dallas City Council candidate running in a contested race. As a real estate blog focusing on residential properties, we asked questions about city issues that affect property owners such as rules governing water-wise landscaping, the athletic field lights planned for the Ursuline Dallas campus, and how the candidates would help solve the Museum Tower impasse with the Nasher Sculpture Center.
As you are well aware, unless you have been in a tornado shelter for the last year, tonight is a star-studded night on the TNT Series Dallas as the cast and whole city of Dallas pay tribute to J.R. Ewing, a.k.a. Larry Hagman, who died in November. Mark Cuban, Jerry Jones and even Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings all have special guest appearances. I believe the funeral is at The Dallas Petroleum Club. On Pegasus, Brentney Hamilton offers us 9 ways to pay tribute to J.R. Ewing in honor of tonight’s show.

And on January 10, the stunning high rise opened it’s doors to an elegant, tasteful celebration that was more an open house than a big splash opening. The developers did not land via helicopter on a roof-top pad as Ross Perot, Jr. did when the W Residences opened. There were musical performances by the Dallas String Quartet, Zach Hess and Charlie Kim on the piano, Carlos Guedes on the 38th floor. Delicious catering was crafted by Lombardi Family Concepts, wine and champagne flowed everywhere. I felt as if I were in New York City next to Lincoln Center. It was a New Year Celebration for Museum Tower, a soft launch for a building that has been struggling with an unintended consequence of it’s quest to be the most energy efficient residential high rise in the southwest: the glare that is bouncing off those curved windows and frying the Nasher. Like a performance, event cards were passed out at the door:
I feel like this is a deja vue moment: Briggs Freeman star agent Claire Dewar was marketing Museum Tower back when it was just a gleam in Brook Partner’s eyes. Now it has come full circle: Museum Tower has announced a sales partnership with Dallas-based Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty to market and move those 42 luxury condominiums we have heard so much about.
