In a Couple of Years, You Can Live at DFW Airport ... On Purpose
Last summer, we mentioned that University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill professor John D. Kasarda was predicting the rise of "the airport city" -- or, ya know, The Aerotropolis. Chief among those new central business districts is, of course, Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and GlobeSt.com today fresh news of a mixed-use development shortly to spring up at DFW: something called Southgate Plaza, which'll cost between $250 and $350 million and break ground early next year on 32 acres at the airport. Says it's "the next development move to establish a world-class airport city" at DFW. Which ain't makin' Fort Worth Mayor Mike Moncrief too happy, not at all. --Robert Wilonsky
