Two Dallas Midtown stakeholders step up to help build

 centerpiece of $20B project

Two Dallas Midtown stakeholders have stepped up in a big way to help build the proposed centerpiece of the evolution of Dallas Midtown, which is expected — if all plans come to fruition — to be the $20 billion answer to Frisco's $5 billion mile (which actually now totals $6.4 billion).

Dallas-based Beck Ventures has pledged $1 million towards the $15 million privately-raised match proposed by the Dallas Midtown Park Foundation. The foundation has asked the city of Dallas to earmark $15 million of the upcoming 2017 bond referendum, which is capped at $800 million.
