Posted by    |    February 15th, 2013 at 11:51 pm

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.

Enroute Welcomes CEOs to DFW and Spotlights South Side

Imagine this: you’re a CEO who has recently relocated or expanded your business to DFW, and you don’t know a soul. Okay, maybe one soul, but that’s not enough to get you fully plugged in to the corporate scene. You have to start from the ground up, meet well-connected and established CEOs and businessmen and women who have lived there for years and hope to make some connections. That’s what Matthews Southwest CEO Jack Matthews had to do when he relocated from Canada to Dallas in March of 1994.

Then imagine this:  you’re a CEO who has recently relocated or expanded your business to DFW, and you don’t know a soul. So you join Enroute, a group of DFW private sector leaders and influencers who welcome you into their network of like-minded people. Their mission: to work collectively with those who helped build it and those who will be a part of its ongoing legacy. Sounds a little easier, right?
