The WaterTower Theatre dates back to 1996. Today, in its 12th Season, the WaterTower has over 2000 subscribers and a budget of $1.1 million.  Perhaps more importantly, it consistently earns rave reviews in local publications and the WaterTower productions regularly are regional theater award winners.

Addison Real Estate is a great place to be.  Addison is slowly but surely becoming the new nightlife hotspot in Dallas.  It used to be lower greenville.  As lower greenville gets more and more "sketchy" at night it is all now shifting to Addison.  Addison homes for sale are being filled with people in the mid 20 to mid 30s.  It is becoming a trend for young adults with good careers to move to Addison so they can be in the middle of the ever changing atmosphere of Dallas.  Addison homes for sale can be purchased from around $150,000 and up.  These homes are commonly found to be around the $100/sq ft mark.  Which is pretty close to average for the Dallas area.  However, Addison seems to be emerging in value in the past few years, meaning that it is a very good time to purchase an Addison ...

Dallas as we all know is a thriving area with many nightlife attractions.  However, as lower greenville real estate gets more and more scary at night to walk around, people are turning towards Addison Night life.  Addison has many great bars and restraunts that people love.  This is what makes Addison Real Estate on the rise.  People are assuming that if they come to Addison every single weekend to enjoy drinks and fellowship with friends that they might as well search Addison homes for sale for themselves and make the leap.  Addison really has thrived as 10 years ago, most of the bars and restraunts were not even in existence yet.  Beltline road has been the biggest supporter of the area, as this is where the power strip of nice places call home.  Addison simply seems to just keep grow...

Addison: The Windy City? Picture a water tower.  A 195-foot tall water tower.  Now, picture this water tower with wind turbines on the top.  You are imagining the vision of Addison's next water tower, expected to be built in 2010, at the intersection of Arapaho Road and Surveyor Boulevard (at the west end of the Arapaho Road Bridge). This water tower will be among the first in the nation to be powered by wind turbines.  The plan is for 10 eight-foot-tall wind turbines, enough to supply power to run the tower and the street lights on Arapaho Road. There will be a community classroom in the pedestal base, where wind energy and water distribution lessons can be presented to area school children. Keeping with the "green" philosophy of the town, the project also calls for use of native and d...
