Don't forget the Sheraton. Biggest example I think we have.

I knew this building wasn't going to disappoint. It's exceeding my expectations, which is unusual for Dallas.

I like the facade. It has a retro feel.

Like a 1950'5 Vegas hotel

Looks great! I feel like I'm only ever in the DD at night so I haven't had much sense how this is coming along. Thanks a lot of sharing!

Great pics! I haven't been to this area in a while, so I had no idea this one had come so far along.

Just took a look at Virgin's site: https://virginhotels.com/coming-soon/
and it lists Dallas' upcoming property first before the others (Nashville, NYC, Las Vegas, Silicon Valley (Milpitas, CA), New Orleans, Washington DC (Urban Market), Edinburgh (Scotland), Palm Springs), seemingly because it will open sooner than the others (?), with a date of this year (but nothing more specific). It says there will be "over 200 chambers" (hotel rooms), the Commons Club (Virgin's main restaurant-bar space) and other eat/drink spots (doesn't say how many), plus a rooftop area which will have a pool/spa/gym with a terrace. The Dallas listing also has a quote from Dunhill's president.

Did they nix all of the residential component to this project. I remember there would be condos then they changed to leased units. I don't see anything about them in this building. That area needs a lot more people living down there just like Victory does to make it all come together.

Seems like a very lonesome outpost, like the W was in the dead days of Victory.

I dig it, although I wish it were a bit taller. Regardless, it's quite nice that we are one of the few cities to have a Virgin Hotel, and I love that they picked the Design District of all locations, because this area has a lot of potential, but it needed a project like this to really draw some attention to the area. Not only that, but it might also bring more attention to the Trinity Strand Trail that's nearby as well.

They might have been inspired by the Cabana Hotel across the way who also has a similar exterior type of decorative perforated skin. The same hotel was to be demoed now being restored.

I wonder what crazy publicity acts they will have for the opening. They made a big deal when they had Richard Branson at the Ground Breaking this time I expect a circus.

According to this, there will be--but on a 4th floor rooftop area, not the top of the building.

Stills from a video on their Twitter confirming that the sign is installed and says "Virgin Hotels Design District"

Not a bad looking sign, need to see it in person to get a better feel. I like the night look especially well.
