The Dallas Morning News recently wrote an editorial about the parking situation at Preston Center.

“Not just any parking garage, but a parking garage that, in itself, symbolizes a suburban past that the corner of Northwest Highway and Preston Road should have left behind long ago,” it reads. “Instead, because of a strange arrangement between the city and myriad stakeholders/investors/owners who control Preston Center, we have had stagnation that has stymied the potential to transform not just Preston Center but the larger Northwest Highway corridor into a truly urban part of Dallas, with all of the benefits that suggests: increased residential density, walkability, true transportation options and a boost to the tax base that could benefit all of us.”

Well now, let me translate this into conversational wording without so many commas and clauses. I just want to be able to find a parking space to get my hair cut, send my son to the orthodontist, get a burger or bagel and attend an occasional 12-step meeting. All of which, is stunningly difficult when it comes to parking.

We recently measured the size of parking spaces in Preston Hollow, including at Preston Center.
