I really do hope it makes sense to build in all those buildings they want to recreate keeping in mind those projects are lumped in Phase 4 aka 10 yrs. I think for me I would like to see the tree planting projects and the Cotton Bowl plaza improvements. The community park is, of course, a no brainer on being first not to mention a requirement of the deal.
For the hotel, I hope they are able to get a decent flag when that project possibly comes. The last thing we need is a budget flag hotel onsite for the next 50 yrs. I doubt we will get an Omni hotel but a decent hotel with meeting space seems like it will be a good match once they can have booking partnerships for the esplanade buildings for larger events. Fair Park is the original Convention Center + Arts District rolled into one. Add some Klyde Warren park back into the thing and you do have a very attractive space for lots of kinds of events.
