And maybe all of the new pedestrian activity will enable the Adolfus to do something with the old cowboy bar on Commerce.
For anyone interested in a view of the construction in the AT&T Discovery District. I'm told the first phases will open late this year!

I believe that section will be permanently closed.

While I haven't seen these in person yet, I think the Reunion Tower Fireworks are a perfectly fine replacement. Like you said, we are lacking that 'central gathering space', but it looks like this year they are attempting to host something in front of City Hall:
The Discovery District would be great as well, but City Hall seems big enough and they have a good vantage point to the fireworks at the Reunion Tower. It's not even terribly far from the Discovery District, so it's possible they could have stuff going on in both areas.
