What you see above is a too-teensy picture we were forwarded yesterday -- one that's making the Interweb rounds as the "official vision for the future of Deep Ellum," as one Friend of Unfair Park put it yesterday. If you'd like to see a larger version of the (proposed?)(hypothetical?)(nah-can't-be?)(you're-kidding-me-right?) Deep Ellum of tomorrow -- assuming it's one in which they've fixed the sewage lines, as Jeff Liles keeps pointing out -- then go here, where you will find a link to an even bigger and easily scrollable version of the very same illustration, which has that "architectural firm" look about it.
By all means, please let the comments commence. --Robert Wilonsky
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.
