Re: Victory Park: The Victor (~453FT / 39ST)

I think you’re right. On the north side of the tower, facing Nowitzky Way, there appears to be a sample of the final finish going on. You can see it in the photo above. Should really make the building stand out.

Re: Arts District: Flora & Olive Tower (~441 FT / ~39 ST)

I thought the same thing, but when I drove by the Victor construction site this weekend, it’s apparent they are adding what looks like a white plaster finish on the concrete. And as poor as the concrete finish is, I’m really relieved. (If Tadao Ando were the architect, he would have punched someone....

Re: Arts District: Flora & Olive Tower (~441 FT / ~39 ST)

Here’s a simple observation (and it’s something that’s perplexed me since I’ve been following the forum). On the website’s landing page, there are multiple categories, including two for “issues” discussions (urban and suburban) and two for “development” discussions (again, urban and suburban). I cer...

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

No updates during this meeting, though the topic appears to be a standing item an their agenda... maybe only when there are specific updates to report/discuss.

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

Listened in on the monthly DCURD meeting recently (they’re conducting it virtually now, like everyone else) and was interested to hear updates on a couple of items in the Urban Center.

Re: Downtown: Klyde Warren Park

“Fountain To Replace Dog Park at Klyde Warren Park
But don't worry, My Best Friend's Dog Park is moving to a bigger location.”

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

Got word this week that Kabuki at the Music Factory will be closing permanently tonight (the one in Plano is already closed apparently). The parent company, who also owns Blue Fish, will replace Kabuki by relocating the Blue Fish from 114 @ MacArthur. Hope the switch works, and doesn’t kill both res...

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

Been in the Music Factory several times lately for Saturday night movies... Both Alamo and surrounding area has been dead as a door knob... Was there last night - the restaurants were packed and sidewalks bustling. Didn’t go into Alamo but there was foot traffic in and around it. The Texas Lottery ...
