Dallas City hall is ugly. I loathe any building build with concrete as an design feature. Burnett Tower in Ft. Worth is the same kind of ugly. They all look like Soviet buildings.

Maybe we need a thread for the ugliest building in Dallas. Sounds like we have a lot of candidates. ;)

The two themed buildings seem to be turning into a thing... party on the bottom, business on the top. Isn't there one in Plano/Frisco on tap?

WAIT --- is this going where Sol's Taco Lounge used to be?

Sol's was where the original side of The Free Man is now.

Did you ever go there Hannibal? That place had the best spinach enchiladas and margaritas. I've got some nice stories from inside that place!

^ Many times.It was a fun place.

Pepe and Mito's is a more than adequate replacement. Great margaritas and the best guacamole in town.

Looks like some of the facade on the garage has gone up.

It was designed by one of the greatest architects in the 20th century, I.M. Pei. What's not to like? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Deep Ellum project gets a reboot for a COVID-19 world

Still ugly and totally out of place.

Once they finish this floor they're working on the project will have topped off.
Driving into town along 30, this building really makes the core visually stretch further east.

Thanks for the picture! I haven't been to Deep Ellum in months, so it's great to see the progress being made here.

Topped off.

Also, it appears that they're only putting the fake brickwork on two or three sides of the parking garage. The south side is plain old concrete. Another FU to the neighborhood. Can't tell yet what their going to do with the west side, but I'm not optimistic since they haven't shown any drawings of that side.

This is looking very nice! I'm looking forward to this one being completed, The Epic, and Good E, I think this area will be bustling when all of these projects are completed.

Yeah, I have to agree. Why not just put up the fake brickwork on all sides? I think there are plans to build condos adjacent to the Adam Hat factory and that development will face a concrete wall. Not a great view at all, IMO.

Maybe they can authorize a mural? Idk. Either way a blank wall is ripe for graffiti.

ah i see. well that's great!
But i meant the wall opposite to the faux windows. the other long side of the building.
It is completely blank It would have made sense to continue the brick work to that side as well.
Although i understand given that it is basically an alley on that side. Facing the bomb factory.
That wall is very prominent from the highway, so a large mural, even if peppered by windows would be very visible. Maybe they can do something like on the Sheraton. a giant poster.

This is the wall I was referencing btw.
Its giant and gray. Perfect for a mural, window cutouts aside.
Being that it faces an alley, I understand why they wouldnt put money in it.
But it is so visible from miles away.
They'd be better served to making use of that space advertising, a cool mural.
People drive from all over to see deep ellum's murals.
But honestly even painting it brick color would make it less of an eye sore.

That really is fairly unattractive, a mural would be a great remedy.
