Dallas-based developer Jack Matthews, CEO of Matthews Southwest, is redefining the Cedars neighborhood adjacent to Downtown Dallas. Jack sat down with YouPlus last week at the Enroute event, to discuss his role in South Side, his next big project for the area, and what he envisions for the future of South Dallas.

The Rivers (or possibly River City if Jack gets his way) is a 60 acre development along the Trinity River, just south of the Dallas Convention Center. Located amidst the Downtown, South Side, and so close to nature, The Rivers will be a unique mix of retail, restaurant and entertainment venues, and will place a heavy emphasis on residential living.
