Sleek Modern Has Surprising Pops of Style and Color Throughout

2211 N. Fitzhugh Front

We’ve talked a lot about East Village and the neighborhood’s battles with commercial development, but we don’t really talk too much about the homeowners who would be affected by a huge big-box store moving in nearby. This beautiful townhome at 2211 N. Fitzhugh is a great example of an East Village property, though. This sleek, open home has everything you could want in an urban address, with three bedrooms, three full baths, and a gorgeous deck for entertaining.

This is a Clay Stapp + Co. listing from Realtor Matt Scobee, and it is just phenomenal inside! Jump for more!

Neighbors near Cityplace say this big box behemoth doesn’t belong in the neighborhood.

In the fight against a big-box corporate behemoth in an area several urban planners, along with the city of Dallas’ own “Forward! Dallas” plan, say is better suited for pedestrian oriented development, the little guy won a huge battle this week.
The East Village Association, the neighborhood group that has spearheaded the fight against a Trammell Crow’s Sam’s Club-anchored development planned for the former ACS campus at Cityplace, won a significant ruling against the developer. The judge in the case sided with the East Village Association, recognizing their right to sue the developer on behalf of neighbors.
“As an immigrant who successfully traveled the long legal road to citizenship, I learned the power of perseverance and was sustained by the dream of being part of the greatest democracy on earth; ‘of, for, and by the people,’ ” said Jonas Park, leader of the “No MegaStore Uptown” group.

Sounds like Betty Culbreath is a CandysDirt.com reader, as the City Plan Commissioner called out our little Dallas real estate blog during her comments at the June 19 meeting in which the proposed Sam’s Club at Uptown East/East Village/Cityplace was discussed.

Her speech, which lasts about three minutes at the 1:26:15 mark, references the $30,000 millionaires we’re hearing so much about these days, how it’s all about neighborhoods, and pool floats! If you didn’t know, Betty Culbreath is a bit of a blogger in her own right.
