Water Street Update


After years of delay, construction finally kicked-off on November 11, 2015, on the new mixed-use development! Water Street is strategically located on Lake Carolyn at the North East corner of Las Colinas Blvd. and O'Connor Blvd. The development is situated in Las Colinas Business Park which boasts an employment base over 120,000. The Las Colinas Water Street development is ideally positioned between DFW International Airport and Dallas' Love Field. Multiple access points via three multi-lane freeways, situated just steps away from the recently completed light rail expansion, and a convenient link to an existing transit system make Water Street a connected Urban Center. 

The Gables Residential is starting work on its long-delayed apartment and retail project on O'Connor Road near state Highway 114. Phase I of the development will also include approximately 60,000 SF of retail & restaurant space and 340 units of multi-family residential. Several restaurants have already been announced, among those are Main Street Bistro, Planet Subs, Olivella’s Neo Pizza Napoletana, Twisted Root Burger Co, and The Londoner Pub. We will update you, as more restaurants and retailers are announced!

 

Home Security Scams


Your home security system is designed to offer you an extra layer of protection. Unfortunately, there are some people who have also found a way to take this valuable resource and use it to make you a scam target. Have an alarm sign in your yard as a warning to criminals that they should just move along? While alarm signs do have their deterrence value, they also provide the potential scammer with the information that you DO have an alarm system!

WHAT’S THE SCAM?
  • An alarm company salesperson or technician comes to your home saying they are there to update your system; yet you did not contact or schedule anyone.
  •  A salesperson with an alarm company says that your company is now out of business and they need a new contract with you as they have taken over the accounts.
  • Someone tells your alarm has a problem and they are there to take a look at it and you did not schedule a service call.
KNOW MORE THAN THE SCAMMERS!
  • Know who you are currently using for your alarm system work and monitoring.
  • If a salesperson comes to your house saying they are with your security company and want to upgrade your system or discuss a new contract; know this is NOT how this is done! Your alarm company would call or send a letter to contact you and make an appointment! 
  • All alarm companies working in Texas must be licensed by the State of Texas! If you speak to an alarm company salesperson or repair technician, they should be able to provide you their State of Texas License upon request. This license currently looks like a Driver’s license with the big difference being that under the word TEXAS it will state, “Private Security Registration”. It will also include a photo of the person.
  • NEVER let anyone into your home to discuss, look at or work on your alarm system unless you scheduled and verified them!! Your alarm is meant to keep out criminals, don’t let them in because you have an alarm system!The Las Colinas Association (LCA) provides alarm monitoring as an assessment benefit to its Members. As a Member, even if you do not use LCA’s alarm monitoring, you may call LCA’s Security Department for phone numbers of licensed alarm company’s working frequently in the area at 972-541-2345 or email us at safety@lascolinas.org .
You may also visit the states Private Security Website at http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/rsd/psb// to verify any security company and their license using the “Records Search” feature.
