Well, Texans do love their surface parking lots.
Is this the De la Vega site, TC or something else?

I mean who would want to sign on here if they knew they would have to wait on tear down, clearing the site and building lots of brand new infrastructure. Could be an expenditure just to improve tenant sign-on options. Most big office tenants still looking want to move in soon not wait on a whole bunch of pre-work.

Look at the rest of Dallas development nothing is being built without a lead tenant and banks are not signing on the dotted line for construction loans on a sugar plum fairy dreams. Delavega seems like an unproven developer in a project of this size so I doubt many banks will grant him the funds on just the fact he has a prime location.

DeLaVega is wants to amend the existing zoning "to allow for the redevelopment of the subject site into a high density mixed-use project," according to the filing with the city.
The changes would "allow for the development of a mix-use development including office, multifamily, hotel and retail uses."
Preliminary plans, which the developer says are outdated, show a high-rise complex of commercial and residential buildings with retail space planned for the high-profile corner.
