  • I've worked right around the corner (Sigma just west of Welch) from this location for almost 15 years. Compared to the current location and other places like Harry Hines - I can at least say it's a much safer part of town. It's mostly furniture outlets and warehouses. No DART Rail stop, but very close to 635/Tollway. -Steve Reeves
