Bush Turnpike TOD

My first impressions of the developers' vision for the transit-oriented development around the Bush Turnpike DART station in Richardson:
  • It looks promising. Preserves creeks. Connects to trails and DART rail. Strives for mixed-use walkability.
  • I like how it uses Spring Creek trail to punch a hole in Central Expwy to tie east/west together.
  • It gets Cottonwood rail line across Central Expwy without blocking traffic at Plano Pkwy. Advantage Richardson over Plano.
