Wow, that's definitely a good amount of activity considered not everything is done/open, it's the hottest part of the year, and we are still dealing with COVID-19.

I'm very glad to see this seems to be a success so far!

That looks fantastic! Wish the giant screen were on but the whole thing has come together nicely.

Good work, AT&T. (Although, I did drop you for T-Mobile)

Wow looks great. Imagine if we had this during the superbowl.
Would have made for a good equivalent to Sundance Square
Maybe for the upcoming world cup if we can get some games

I know this is getting repetitive lol, but another one chiming in to say that this project is SO good and will be so much fun to visit once the world fixes itself. Coaxed a longtime Dallas resident friend to come downtown with me and she was blown away that this even existed.

drove by yesterday after work and they put up the new pegasus city brewery sign.. looks really good and was lit up nicely.

Commerce street really improving with all of this and will only get better with hawthorn and pegasus city opening soon.

Main Street for awhile has carried the bulk of good things to see and do. Its good to see Commerce pick up the slack.

Wow, gorgeous. Reminds me of old theatre row down elm street.
Hopefully we can get a few others going down commerce.

Tremendous. Love it, love it, love it. Pegasus City's branding is so great already, and this is just another home run IMO.

Can't wait to get down there once they open (post-pandemic).

Oh wow, I had no idea they were adding that, but I absolutely love it! It feels in really well, and I hope we can get a few more of these from other businesses, what a cool look!

I haven't been down in quite a while, but the brewery isn't directly next to the Discovery District, is it?

Looking at Google Maps, it seems like it is one block east. I for some reason had thought it would have a patio facing the district.

Correct, it looks like the outdoor spot of pegasus brewery will be looking at the hawhorn resturant and starbucks on the outside of the discovery district. Its a nice addition to that side of the district over by the cowboys fit gym.. all in all this development came out better than i thought it would and driving home from work, im amazed how many people are gravitating towards it even before the major rollout.

They just updated the existing Jos A Bank sign with the new tenant name.

I found this on YouTube. It’s a vlog of a weekend trip to Dallas. Skip to 5:36 to see AT&T discovery district. I’m surprised it’s that busy.

From the video, it looks very successful so far...even with COVID

This place is on fire. For anyone who hasn't been down there yet I highly would recommend checking it out. The screen alone is worth making a special trip for. But beyond that, the level of pedestrian activity is off the charts for downtown. I've never seen anything like it. And the food hall is barely even open yet! Jaxon's is as packed as the Katy Trail Ice House every time we've stopped by. It seems like this district is pulling street-level activity into itself from every other part of downtown like a giant magnet.

It will be interesting to see if The National can capitalize on all this momentum when it opens. As you can see in their renderings, it's a straight shot down Akard between the two developments. The only barrier between them really is the homeless encampment at Pegasus Plaza. If the city could get that cleaned up, this corridor could become extremely vibrant

Everytime I walk by this district, its completely slammed, especially on thurs,fri, sat night and pretty soon.. the food hall will be fully open along with the hawthorn resturant and pegasus city brewery.. One guy who is working on pegasus city said they are 1/2 weeks away.

This is wonderful to hear, and this area will only get even more livelier as more things open!

I'm definitely going to check this area out as soon the brewery opens!

It appeared to be relatively busy, too, whenever I passed by this weekend!

I stopped by this afternoon for a couple drinks. I'd say it was decently busy, considering they are still in their 'soft opening' phase.

The service was great, the interior looked fantastic, but I felt like their patio needed a bit of work. I think I may have overheard one of the employees saying it was still a work in progress and they had bigger/better plans for the outdoor space, which was good to hear! All in all, it's a very welcome addition to Downtown, and I think they'll do really well given they are in the Discovery District.

Yes I saw that they were open yesterday! Discovery District is really changing downtown overnight. When looking East down Jackson St, It's really easy to see how 200 Pearl/Harwood Park is going to connect East Quarter, Farmer' Market, Deep Ellum, and the heart of downtown.
