To say the least, 2015 was a year of investing and reinvesting for Downtown and we do not see any reason why that will change as we move into 2016 with an updated Downtown Dallas 360 plan being completed and paving the way for continued success. Please save the date for our Annual Luncheon Meeting on March 7th. We will have a couple of special guests you do not want to miss who will be sharing their perspective on what makes an ‘urban city’.
All the best for the New Year. The best is yet to come!
