Pulse of the City which is sponsored by Dallas-based law firm Munck Wilson Mandala will take an in-depth look each week at issues associated with Dallas’s Central Business District, the city of Dallas and issues such as education and transportation across North Texas.

In addition to tackling some of the big issues facing our area, we will also be highlighting events and ribbon cuttings that will have wide-reaching impacts.

This includes the opening of the Klyde Warren Deck Park over Woodall Rogers Freeway. Along with covering all the fanfare surrounding the official opening, we are going to be diving into how the park over the freeway will geographically and economically change the dynamic that exists between downtown Dallas and the uptown area. Such events will be highlighted with monthly events featuring KRLD Business Analyst David Johnson.

Our weekly show hosted by Matt Thomas will be full of newsmakers and will also be enhanced by the insight of Downtown Dallas Incorporated President and CEO John Crawford.

Downtown Dallas, Inc. is the principal advocate, champion and steward of Downtown, affecting change by developing strategies, setting targets and mobilizing resources that:

  • Stimulate a vibrant and sustainable Downtown environment
  • Improve infrastructure
  • Enhance economic competitiveness
  • Create a culturally inclusive urban center
  • Position the area as a global destination

Downtown Dallas has repositioned itself in recent years as not just the largest employment center in North Texas, but also as a premier destination to live, dine, shop, and be entertained. New retailers, restaurants and cultural spots are opening at a more aggressive pace than ever, and with the adoption of expanded Downtown boundaries, a new Downtown has emerged.

Downtown Dallas is made up of fifteen districts, each with enough to discover and explore for weeks on end. For more information about all there is to see and do in these districts, be sure to visit our sister site at
