They built a lot of stuff on top. I wonder if it's all resident-driven amenities now or also access is allowed from any ground floor tenants. Obviously, it took a lot of work on emergency access improvements because that's what held the city back from approving the use of these buildings above the ground floor for decades.

Looks like the sidewalk may be opening soon.

I'm amazed at how well this looks. Too bad there isn't more of this all over the CBD.

It's a stunning improvement. Hope this helps set a new standard for future projects. I have not been up close but it just looks like the attention to detail, colors, materials and lighting have all been really good.

These are gorgeous! I honestly feel like there will be a lot of activity around here, once the new retail opens up here. From what I've seen, Main street seems to be decently lively on a regular basis, and, once word gets out that some new places opened up a block over, I can see a lot more traffic in evenings and weekends.

Beautiful! Seems worth the wait. There's many of these type of buildings sitting underutilized in the East Quarter, surrounded by vacant land ready for infill. I hope that the East Quarter developers take as much care in restoring their buildings. There's a lot of potential over there unless they decide to stick with surface parking lots.

Damn. I'm loving the sidewalk width. Not quite as wide as here in AMS, but it's a huge improvement, relatively speaking.

Awe... Amsterdam, what a great city. I am envious.

@Matt777 You're right. East Quarter does have a lot of this same style of buildings. West End should be like this too.

I am envious of Dallas's housing supply. It's just a travesty over here, especially for those looking for student housing.
