The much awaited grand opening of CityWalk@Akard went off without a hitch. There was a great turnout and people seemed to be very excited and interested. To be honest, earlier that same day I was not sure if we were going to have everything done on time - there was so much work to be done in such a short period of time. But, everyone pulled together to set up and prepare for the opening.
And to answer anyone’s question, yes, the Central Dallas CDC web site will be completed this week. It took forever to learn the new format...wow, like forever.
I am now starting to work on the new Center of Hope project that Central Dallas CDC is doing. I’m excited to be a part of a great team that will once again be developing housing for the homeless in the Downtown Dallas area. Central Dallas CDC has blossomed into probably one of the largest nonprofit developers in Texas with many projects, and I’m still amazed with the newly revamped building we are now in.
