We've seen plenty of conceptual renderings of the Re:Vision Dallas finalists, but this morning, North Carolina-based Little Diversified Architectural Consulting provides us with a very impressive video showcasing their self-sustaining downtown block, The Entangled Bank. Should Central Dallas Community Development Corporation and bcWORKSHOP proceed with this project -- which envisions a self-sustaining development behind Dallas City Hall breaking ground some time next year -- there's a very good chance The Entangled Bank, or at least some version of it, will occupy what's now a parking lot.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
