RiversEdge project could get more time and incentives
The Downtown Investment Authority board agreed to give Dallas-based Preston Hollow Community Capital LLC more time to complete site infrastructure work and to increase the property tax incentive payout for the Southbank RiversEdge: Life on the St. Johns.
