Re: Downtown Dallas: 2000 Ross Project

Just looked this one over, and, even though in earlier pages the *.pdf shows proposed visuals of hotel/residential included - page 25 shows no residential tower. In it's place is the garden area that extends only to the driveway and then a surface parking area. http://www.trammellcrowcenter.com/wp-c...

Re: Downtown Dallas: 2000 Ross Project

The *.pdf link that J Soto shared upthread (https://shopcompanies.com/sites/default/files/2000-rossretail-brochure-website.pdf) shows on page 7 that the residential component appears left out of the quality visuals in this round, but, is in the proposed final site plans and the basic massing visual ...

Re: Downtown Dallas: Tower Petroleum - The Saint Elm Hotel (1907 Elm) & Corrigan Tower (1900 Pacific)

Hey, if anyone online right now or very soon has a landscape picture of Tower Petroleum from any date, that is decent quality and does not mind letting Teresa Gubbins use for an article (w/credit) at Culture Map Dallas, can you jump on facebook (or twitter) and send one to her?

I have no investment in this project financially, however. It's just personal. Initial talk is another permit (I looked th...

Slab to slab appears to be 12.5', including the future-proofing space with remaining 11' floor to ceilings for floors 3-25. Lets take 25 floors, subtract 1 for no 13th floor. Then subtract the lobby and 2nd floor amenities areas. 22 stories x 12.5'. Let's be generous and say the 2nd floor is also 12...

Meet-Up 2017

I know one person who is onboard for a forum meet-up asap besides me. We need to make this a thing again like it used to be.

So, I recommend a get-together sometime this coming week/next weekend. Anyone game? There are others out there who could show up who are not members of the forum. . .

Re: Uptown Dallas: New Hotel at Hall and Oak Grove

So, is the 6-story (5 over 1) 2934 N. Hall project a single-owner live/work project candidate? It states a good-sized price tag for what seems to be to buy the whole thing. If so, interesting and similar to the shorter Sugar Films building.

Definitely not a lot of glare off that glass. Our architecture critic found the time o'day at this time of year that contradicts. (He also did it for Hall Arts Plaza way back, so. . .) https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C7E7BFaUwAAK8bY.jpg https://twitter.com/marklamster/status/842519503938490368
