...yes! And to bridge the dead zone between downtown, Lower Greenville and Lakewood. Won't that be nice.
In early 2017, the restaurant hired a PR agency to try and drum up coverage, but received little response.
Arianne Bennett says they're saddened by the closure. "It is closed, and it makes us very sad," she says. "It's unfortunate there just is not the business for it there. We really loved being in the community."

I was wondering the same thing. I'm guessing it's somehow related to the imminent move by Delta Airlines to establish a global mega-hub at DFW Airport.

IDK Lakewood isn't very dense TBH..and the shopping center has tons of parking.. I don't think anyone would use a streetcar.
Honestly, a street car from Mockingbird to LG to Ross and Downtown would probably be better a investment. All those new apartments and Townhomes coming up along Ross would be better served with improved transit service.
Live Oak would also be a better option for a streetcar IMO than Lakewood.
Deep Ellum Live will live again as Canton Hall, the latest music venue to rise from Deep Ellum’s early 2000s ashes and into the revitalized neighborhood.
About this time last year, the news broke that Clint and Whitney Barlow, owners of Trees and the Bomb Factory, were working on (re)introducing another venue, this one right next to the Bomb Factory at 2727 Canton St., on the corner with Crowdus. After extensive renovations to the space, which has been unoccupied since Deep Ellum Live shuttered in 2004, today a website and social media unveiling revealed the venue’s new name and its opening date: Oct. 31

We need some hotels (and residential) there to continue the momentum. The people staying there will help the restaurants and bars bring in more daytime dollars, which I think they need. Cedars is doing well on the hotel, residential, and entertainment sides. It just needs to scale up what it's been doing.

That property is one big one and the thing I see from developers the most is not adding steps and it seems like that having to join parcels together is a big process. Personally, I don't understand enough about that part to know why but I have seen time and time again, developers skip buying a group of properties in a better location to buy an already large enough tract of land further away.
The biggest land play will be the from the city. That large swath of land they control next to I-30 at the edge of Deep Ellum near 400 S. Hall is the perfect piece for some Trammel Crow/KDC/Perot to swoop in and build new construction office, residential and retail without dealing with preservation of older buildings like the core of Deep Ellum. It contains a lot of city offices that will need to be moved but all they have to do is move some of those things closer to South Dallas promising they are bringing economic activity to a depressed area with the relocation of a new city facility etc. The price for selling off that property for economic development will be worth it.
the Wythe hotel looks like it would fit in deep ellum but it is a very expensive and classy joint... i can't imagine the market in Deep Ellum has demand for something so high class (no offense intended) but would love to be wrong
Deep Ellum's Latest Addition Has a Massive Rooftop Patio and 3 Dining Experiences
Deep Ellum's newest restaurant dining and drinking complex offers three separate experiences to keep them entertained. You could spend an entire day here moving from space to space. Harlowe MXM's first floor offers a sit-down, fancier experience complete with a luxe, industrial-chic-with-pops-of-greenery feel. Harlowe MXM's rooftop patio is Deep Ellum's newest rooftop experience, complete with communal tables, plenty of sofas, lovely frozen drinks, a large bar with plenty of taps and, of course, a sprawling view of the Dallas skyline. Lastly, cocktail bar Trick Pony gives diners a chance to be drunk and delighted.

The build out of the space is really amazing... first class design and materials. Would love to see this done with more of Deep Ellum it could really ground the neighborhood for the future.
I love a lot of the new businesses in Deep Ellum but they were more like DIY network shows this is more like "This old House"
