What a difference 10 years makes.

Back in 2008, Oak Cliff was still a “hidden treasure,” and the Bishop Arts District was just beginning to come into its own as a Dallas hot spot.

The Cliff Dweller magazine, the predecessor of this publication, asked neighbors for their predictions for 2008 in its January magazine that year.

Here’s one, from Michael Amonett, who is now a City of Dallas landmark commissioner. It doesn’t seem too far-fetched at this point:

A plan will be devised by the Dallas City Council to turn the Trinity River Park into the Trinity River Park Mall. The mall will have Sam’s; Bed, Bath and Beyond; the Gap; and similar stores so that tollroad drivers will have somewhere to go.
