Hunt Realty Plans $5 Billion Reunion Overhaul. Steve Brown at the News reports that the area behind Reunion Tower could be home to thousands of apartments, another hotel, ground-level retail, two million square feet of office space, and a 3- to 4-acre park. Half of the 3,000 apartments would be workforce housing, according to Hunt Realty CEO Colin Fitzgibbons, targeted at “nurses, teachers, firemen, policemen.” A master plan also includes redeveloping Union Station, and incorporates plans for a new convention center on the neighboring property.

Woman’s Body Found in Burning Car In Far North Dallas. Firefighters were called to a burning car in a Walmart parking lot at about 1 p.m. on Thursday and found a body inside. Investigators told NBC 5 that witnesses said the woman was inside the car alone while a “relative was inside the store shopping.” The medical examiner has not ruled on a cause of death, and investigators are reviewing security footage to determine how the fire started.

Rain and a Cold Front Ahead. Most of Dallas-Fort Worth will receive half an inch of rain today, but some portions might get an inch. Lows will be in the high 30s by Sunday, with Christmas looking like a high of 59 and a low of 48. So, not much of a cold front, but we’ll get some much-needed rain.
