Calm Envelops University Park

For the first time since I arrived at Park Cities People two years ago, two projects don’t loom darkly on the horizon, waiting to gobble any councilman, resident, or reporter along the way: the Chase Bank building project and the YMCA project.

Not that either of these are going away of course, but there’s a pause. A detente. Chase Bank will return, and within a few weeks I expect we’ll hear what the next step is in the YMCA’s plans.

But, for now, stay home. Stay far away from University Park City Hall. Hug your children. Reclaim your Tuesday night. Rest.

    Maybe you are on to a good idea – could the Y use the Chase space?

    UP isn’t going to allow anything to move forward at the Chase Dinosaur unless SMU buys it.

    Chase is open–took over the Blockbuster space. The building is no longer “The Chase Building.”

    i think Matt has it right – SMU will probably put an 18-story dorm there (which would sail right through City Council)

    UP administration marches to a different drummer. They spent something like $20 thousand last year for the entrance sign on Hillcrest from NW Highway, got the letters to small, spent more money to fix it, and now you can’t even see the letters because of the vegetation they planted in front of the sign. Brilliant.
