Just let these things get built out and wait for the next recession, $3,800 will end up being $2,200 with first two months free :lol:

Big D NYE won't return in 2018
For the fourth consecutive year, Big D NYE is "on hiatus," confirms event executive director Jim Glass. The New Year's Eve celebration that took place at the doorstep of American Airlines Center, in Dallas' Victory Park, will not take place on Dec. 31, 2018.

Sine then, it's been the same song, different verse: GuideLive's Tiney Ricciardi reported in 2015, 2016 and 2017 that Glass couldn't find a suitable new home for a large-scale New Year's Eve event, after looking at dozens of options. ("We've looked at every major location that is possible to hold 30,000 to 40,000 [people] between the Red River and Waco," Glass said in 2016.)

Fair Park seems like the only possible location for something this big.

Is the Hines Victory Park office building that was supposed to go just north of One Victory dead? It has been on the books for years (maybe since 2015?) and it always seems like it is 1 year out from starting up.

I never really understood why they didn't move this to Fair Park. FP does fireworks on Fourth of July and every night of the State Fair. Was there some other logistical problem related to broadcasting the event?

If you look closely at the renderings for the Victor, you can see the future Hines office building in the background. I think that means they are still planning on it, but who knows

It just needs a new tenant. Would not be surprised to see another large law firm take this and make a presence in the future.
