If you live in North Texas, you pretty much worship the Dallas Cowboys, and the team’s most famous quarterback, Roger Staubach.
Starting next year, Cowboys fans can live right next door to their dream team’s 91 acre world headquarters and practice facility in Frisco, Texas, about 28 miles north of Dallas. Even better news: the $62.5 million project is being developed through a joint venture with Roger Staubach, one of the most famous players in football history, Cowboys current owner Jerry Jones, and former Cowboys center Robert Shaw, a Dallas-based developer.

Last week, D CEO held its third annual Women’s Leadership Symposium. While listening to the 11 female speakers talk about creating more gender equality in North Texas, many people in the audience—including myself—were taking notes. Most of my notes could be boiled down into single sentences or phrases. Gather your squad. Lean in. Speak up. Be the change. Those one-liners get shared, retweeted, printed on glittery T-shirts, and made into hashtags. These messages are important and—if the enthusiasm of our audience was any measure—they are working.
Though, if I’ve learned anyt...Read More

GlenStar Properties and USAA Real Estate had spent more than a year working on plans for the reboot of the 14-acre Energy Square complex at North Central Expressway and University Drive.

Vincent Starnes lives at the North Park Terrace Apartments. One night, he says he fell and broke his hip because the outdoor lights had been broken for months.
The North Park Terrace Apartments in Vickery Meadow has been a bit of a ghost town for the past few months. Tenants of the 300-unit complex began moving out in October when they were told that the Dallas Independent School District had purchased the property as part of a 2015 bond package and would be building a new elementary school.
Since then, workers have been boarding up apartment windows and doors one by one. The large, sprawling campus is eerily quiet all day. At night, it’s very dark.
“I was going to work one day, emptying the garbage, and there be trash all out in the dumpster,” said Vincent Starnes, an apartment resident...Read More
