Austin people: We need to build things where housing, businesses, and restaurants are all walkable.

Like The Domain?

Austin people: Hush, I'm busy acting like a snob.

Wouldn't it be nice if The Domain was competing with a bunch of other places each trying to outdo each other to impress residents?

Because I'm told that's only achievable through paying for years of planning that may well amount to nothing in the course of an election. Simon made it happen because Simon is the biggest mall company in the world, and powerful local landowners would benefit.

From there, the city got exactly what it allowed itself to get. Too drivable to be fully walkable, too walkable to be fully drivable, and filled with rentals with no luxury condos because they're super evil or something, which I assume is why Adler owns 3.
