FORT WORTH — What the heck is all this talk about a “Fort Worth Streetcar” system? In short, this is a great project from the City of Fort Worth and the Fort Worth Transportation Authority that will help bring further economic development and better urban mobility to Fort Worth’s downtown and surrounding areas.
On Thursday, July 8, 2010, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) awarded this project $25 million in funding…the maximum amount possible from this effort. This will allow an initial 2.5-mile one-way streetcar loop to be constructed connecting a Trinity Railway Express (TRE) commuter rail station and Intermodal Transportation Center with the central business district of Fort Worth.
This initial streetcar loop will have…

Could you or anyone you know use $8,000 FREE?
The 2009 First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit was just passed into law in February 2009. This credit is available for first time home buyers only who purchase and close on a home in 2009. A first time home buyer is someone who has not owned a principal residence during the three year period prior to the purchase. So, you could actually have owned a home in the past and still qualify. You also must be a U.S. citizen and file your taxes... AND you don’t have to pay it back! (unless you sell the house within 3 years after you purchase it….)
Of course there is a bit of fine print. If you are single or head-of-household you can claim the full $8,000 credit if your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) is less…

Inspired by the art deco architectural details found in the grand lobby of the Texas & Pacific Terminal on Lancaster facing the installation, Garten used many of the same shapes as…

Another wonderful tour of another wonderful condo building going up in the booming downtown of Fort Worth!
What a pleasure it was to accompany Anna and Sarah with Omni Hotels all the way to the 24th, 25th and finally 29th floor to experience the views that many of us have been wondering about since we started watching the impressive Omni condo/hotel building race skyward.
Below you will find several images and an explanation of what you are seeing and where in the building I was standing.
Here we're obviously looking straight north towards downtown. This view is from the 24th floor A unit's living room. This unit has a 400 SF balcony to enjoy this view…
