Wish I knew how to start a petition and talk to investors to get some or at least one respectable high rise (12-15) stories in Texarkana. Just a thought.

Good luck on that. You're going to need it because no one in their right mind would throw away their money on a losing venture like that.

Like I said. Just a thought. People really seem to doubt Texarkanas ability. This city has a lot going for it. Maybe not so much now at this very minute but with steady growth and the second interstate coming through town it's only a matter of time.

This city could have a lot going for it but with all the crime here coupled with law enforcement agencies that don't give a shit, then I'm not very hopeful about its future.

I don't think Texarkana is urban enough to dig the high rise lifestyle even though there are many advantages. One drawback we have seen first hand is with a situation our daughter encountered in Denver. She had a fantastic condo leased in an upscale high rise and the retired Dr. who owned the penthouse unit somehow introduced bed bugs into the unit and they slowly began moving to lower floors. Daughter was able to get out of the lease and moved to a house.

What I think would be welcome and successful here are patio homes/townhouses. Low to no maintenance.
Ideal for professional folks and empty nesters.We would be a buyer given the right deal.

Sounds like a great idea.

Texarkana could look to equal to slightly larger cities and see what they have that we dont. Near the same demographic population would possibly be a good indicator of where the city should be headed.

no reason to build something if there is no demand. if there was demand, there would be someone throwing a building up as soon as possible

what do you put in said building? Who rents it, what company in Texarkana is big enough to fill up a 12-15 story building with employees?

Hosptial- already there

not much else from there......

three floors at old century bank building are available for lease if anyone has the $$$ or need for the space.

Doesn't sound like a T-town thing to me.

there needs to be more industrial and commercial and DJIA Blue Chip business development before you see any kind of highrise buildings in the Texarkana area. who knows you may see that some twenty to fifty years from now. its not impossible. Texarkana does sit between Dallas, Little Rock and Shrevport. there is always potential it could grow big but i suspect that is fifty years down the road before that seriously would become established.

Hey, we've got a high-rise. Just drive down Robison road by the NEW housing you just paid for. Wonderful place full of Obama voters. Maybe they have an opening!

not any real biz for high rise buildings. Most industry is low pay here. Wouldn't pay off, not feasible. Would be nice but local ppl do not want city living.
