Every time I drive by the practically abandoned Valley View Mall, I let out a little sigh. It’s just so ugly! The only thing that attracts a crowd over there is the random carnival. It’s tragic, especially for such a visible area.
I was downtown with my mother-in-law this week, and I said to her, look at Museum Tower: it looks to me like they are experimenting with different panes of glass, perhaps to solve the re-flectivity issue. No confirmation, but it sure looked that way to this evil eye. Then today, a very smart move by the developers: an open letter in the Dallas Morning News saying they are looking for a solution to the re-flectivity issue, but not saying what it is, or who will pay for it. If you subscribe, Robert Wilonsky has the story here. Basically, the letter comprises the entire back page of the Business section, a substantial ad investment but hey, that’s one way to make sure the reporters aren’t going to exaggerate or get snarky mean-spirited, as they can do, as they have done on this issue. Wilonsky notes:
Dallas Real Estate News & Crime: Was Someone Shooting Up the Shelton? What is This, Park Cities or Beirut?
Scary thought, but Robert Wilonsky is reporting in the Dallas Morning News there’s been a bit o’ crime over at the Shelton. Yes, thee Shelton — that pricey high rise across from the Park Cities Hilton where they are still trying to sell condos for $1.3 million, don’t get me started. They have been selling these units or trying to since Nicky and Eleanor’s heyday.
No handcuffs yet, I’m still able to blog. While I was touring a gorgeous home in Kessler today, noonish, another Dan Nelson treasure (stay tuned, stay very tuned), Robert Wilonsky at the Dallas Morning News emails me that I’m in trouble: Richard Malouf filed a complaint against me with the Dallas Police Department. Read this all quickly on my iphone and called Robert, per his request, to do some ‘splaining. (No doubt my husband will be wanting some next.) It seems Richard Malouf is not happy that I took some photos of his front yard lined with the future components of his Water World. And he claims that I entered his construction gates to do so:
Tell Me Your Real Estate Story: “Unfair Park” Editor Eric Nicholson is Back in Dallas and Needs a New Place
Eric Nicholson is the new Robert “Fingers of Fury” Wilonsky. The young journo, formerly of the Texarkana Gazette, has taken over the helm of Unfair Park, the Dallas Observerblog. With his new gig, he’s back in Dallas and holed up at his parents’ house in North Dallas with his wife, Megan, his 3-year-old, Connor, and another baby on the way. Obviously, he needs a great house for a great deal. Any takers? Continue reading
As we told you here absolutely first, former Fox entertainer Glenn Beck has confirmed he’s not only moving to Dallas but in fact, the family is already here. (Wonder how it makes the folks in Westlake feel when Beck says he’s moving to “Dallas”?) Robert Wilonsky at The Dallas Observer also has this fun YouTube video of the new Pietra now Beck manse, which he is leasing for $20,000 a month. Over the weekend, I heard that Beck is leasing because he wants to test the waters in Vaquero and may ultimately build his own spread out there. He also plans to build a big radio/TV/production facility and “we’re gonna create some jobs with people who know how to create jobs”. Beck was not too keen on the “media” spilling the beans on his new abode, despite leasing under an assumed name (can you do that?) and confidentiality agreements. He’s worried that it will put his family in jeopardy, and to that I say, chill, Glenn: you’re living in Vaquero.
If Good Christian Bitches Jacks Up our Real Estate Market, Just Think What The B******S of Dallas will Do!
Robert Wilonsky at The Dallas Observer says not only is the Dallas pilot going to be shot here, shooting begins in just a few weeks and really showcases the city. Our city. Let me tell you how vitally this impacts us. Giving away my age here, kind of like Larry, but I was living in New York City when the first Dallas series was airing, and learned we would be moving to Dallas. We all sat and watched it, took notes: wow, do all the houses look like that? Do all the women? That place looks familiar. (Translate: sell my furniture, go on a diet, get Botox STAT.) Then a few years later — that was the longest-running series ever — my daughter and I took swimming classes with Charlene Tilton and her baby — BTW where is Charlene now? A television show about a certain city just sets the image. Could Sex In The City have taken place anywhere but New York? And not all cities get shows named after them — where’s “Austin“? For better or worse, Good Christian Bitches and Dallas are showcasing us to the world, and outsiders will think we live like those characters… and all have ranches with Longhorn. And are Christian, with cleavage.
