Folks from Granite Properties and Gables Residential Trust talk to GlobeSt.com about their latest project in Uptown: a $200-million, two-tower project tentatively named 17Seventeen McKinney, 'cause, like, that's its address. Sounds like quite the shebang: 19-story office tower, six levels of parking and retail and "a one-acre 'amenity' deck that connects to its neighbor, a 26-story residential tower with 292 units." Whole thing sounds very Chris-Chris -- nothing says modern Dallas development like the infinity pool and a 4,000-square-foot fitness center overlooking Victory Park. Besides, "real estate fundamentals in [Uptown] are not going to go away," Granite COO Greg Fuller tells GlobeSt.com. "You've got to look long term, past this rocky bubble. Great real estate in great locations will always survive in good times or bad." --Robert Wilonsky
