Downtown Dallas: Adolphus Renovation

Postby willyk » 17 Jan 2017 21:20

I see that the driveway openings are boarded over. I guess this space is destined to become restaurant or retail. Any word on what the new offerings will be?

I've seen some pretty nice renderings for this somewhere out there and very recently.

Thank goodness for the new owners. They saw potential in removing the carport and building out a series of ground floor activated spaces that will greatly increase the respect and attractiveness of this Dallas icon. The carport was just burning money. With a combination of the city allowing a previous car travel lane to become the new valet area. This property has been elevated to new heights and a positive contributor to Downtown.

Yeah, this is quite a drastic change to the area. Hopefully it's a huge success for them and other buildings will take note.

Also gives an incentive to walk down this part of Commerce while AT&T Discovery District is getting built.

Before this gets too far, mdg's pics are from the Hotel, not the office Tower (the original topic) on the other side.

I have seen the new entrance doorway, and it's quite nice and a pleasant surprise.

Also, another store in the works is called Commerce Goods + Supply. Assume it's a gift shop or something similar.

No sooner than the French Room renovation is done, now the executive chef and the Food & Beverage GM there are gone. A new executive chef has been hired; he will debut a new menu in October.

Wow, brief, but nice. They didn't bad-mouth us for once.

The Adolphus did a great job with their renovation. It's my hotel-of-choice now when staying downtown.

It's too bad that so much $$$$ had to go into redoing the hotel, but that's what happens when you have a previous owner (or several) that don't put any $$$$ into a hotel. At least one or two I've worked for basically treated the hotels like ATM machines--nothing or little in return. And, at least for once, we have one of our oldest buildings treated like it should be--not as a next item on a demolition company's list.
