The rooftop deck looks cool. I wonder if they'll add any landscaping to the front of the building.

Bring back the Mason Bar (R.I.P.) and put it on the rooftop deck here.

August 18th vs November 2nd. I've always been a fan of this little building. It looks nice with the new glass.

Construction starts on downtown Dallas tower

https://www.dallasnews.com/business/real-estate/2019/11/05/construction-starts-on-downtown-dallas-tower/

“Our 25,000 square feet of retail and 200,000 square feet of office will be completed in first quarter 2021 – just under 18 months,” said developer Shawn Todd. “The 336 apartments will be totally completed by second quarter 2022.”

That's a very ambitious timeline for the office portion, which hopefully means there's a lead tenant attached. The residential portion always looked like a separate building to me, so it's no wonder that we see it on a different schedule.

Maybe we're looking at another 2000 Ross Ave "later phase" for the apartments.

Hell ya, this is such a great development in such a great spot. I think this is one of my favorite buildings of the last few years. Glad to see that the NIMBYism of the townhomes in the area weren't able to drag this down. This building is the same sort (although at a slightly larger scale!) of development that makes Washington DC so great and accessible. Imagine if downtown had ~10 of these scattered around the south end.

I'm very close to this....there are only a few NIMBY's (like just one or two people that are making themselves look like fools saying this tower is going to destroy the Farmers Market District).

The developer is also doing setbacks that are not even required by the development code.

Very excited about this one. It seems like East Quarter has been moving full steam ahead, but is going largely unnoticed by the general public. Perhaps a big development like this will really tie it all together and draw some attention to the area.

Yeah I think a lot of it has been prep work on most of the buildings. Once there are actual tenants in a lot of these, I think it will help too.

I wonder how the timing of this new building lines up with plans for Harwood Park?

The other question is, if they have a lead tenant signed for this space I wonder who it is and if it is tech related? Would be great fun if this entire area turned into a more significant tech hotbed.

That's a nice view!

On a somewhat related note, with the rest of the EQ getting spruced up, I wonder if we'll ever see Salazar Center remove the ugly glass skin which was added back in the '80s. It wasn't ever the prettiest building, but what we have now is hard to look at.

It's so weird seeing that building looking so light and airy with all that glass. We have been staring at the solid white blank wall for so many years opening it up that much is a significant change just from the street level alone.

Wow, I had no idea that building had been glassed over. It's definitely got the retro blue-blockers kind of vibe to it right now haha.

To be fair, I like the glass skin of the Salazar building. It is very Dallas and very Texas, in a strange way.

I assume this is the site of the upcoming mid-rise in the East Quarter area.

Any updates on when the restaurants might start opening up here? I know there was a restaurant and coffee shop called National Anthem and PMA All Day, but I have not seen any updates for either of these places.

East Quarter developer talks bringing the Dallas district back to life

https://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news ... rests.html

Located around Cesar Chavez Boulevard and Commerce Street on the east side of downtown, the project is expected to consist of the redevelopment of more than a dozen nearly century old buildings, as well as up to four ground-up developments.

More details on 300 Pearl here, for those of us behind the bizjournals paywall.

https://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/news ... Item=23716

"Located between Pearl St. and Cesar Chavez Blvd., the 20-story building will include 180,000 sf of office space, 25,000 sf of ground-floor retail, and 336 Class A apartments."

I was trying to figure that out. At one point I was keeping a rough list of interesting projects to watch in this area, but there have been so many announcements in the last few months that I abandoned it. Can't keep anything straight!

Lol . the old dallas news press release definitely said 17,
But this biz journal says 20 for sure. But its the same building.
They might have just added 3 stories to round up the number.
the picture is a weird angle, but they are the same building.

Counting the floors from the central connecting point to the building's highest portion, it does appear there are three more in the second rendering.

When I count the floors on both renderings I count 19. I probably miss counted the two-story glass space between the office portion and the residential tower thrown on top.

Honestly, I would be fine with the project if it didn't have the residential tower on top. Its the oddest part of the whole architecture and gives it that everything including the kitchen sink design scheme. Like it was a total afterthought and is the crazy cake topper thrown on top of a store-bought cake sheet cake. It makes me wish they had just gone ahead with a taller slender tower on top rather than the plan here where they spread the residential across the entire complex to keep it from being "too tall".

Overall though I think the residential and office plus retail will help connect the dots with the Farmers Market and Main Street. Help not fix or solve.

Thinking small: New downtown Dallas hotel will have “micro” rooms
https://www.dallasnews.com/business/rea ... icro-rooms

The three-story building at 2105 Commerce Street is adjacent to the big East Quarter development that’s redoing dozens of properties on the eastern edge of downtown.

Sova Hospitality has filed plans to convert the almost 90-year-old building into a 39-room “micro hotel.”


On our last trip to London we stayed at a Z Hotel, which is a similar concept. These are perfect for people who need to stay one night to catch an early flight the next day or expect to spend very little time in their rooms. The amenities usually make up for the cramped space (free wine in our case).

Awesome, I love it! It's nice to have a variety of options in the city, and I'm definitely the type of person who likes to spend very little time in their room, so something like this would appeal to me (if I wasn't already living here).

What I've been really wanting to see for a while now is actual micro-apartments. I doubt Dallas, as a city, is quite there yet to support such a thing, but I'm glad we're at least getting hotel rooms that appeal to people who don't mind smaller spaces.

I was in DC a couple of years ago and stayed at Hotel Hive, billed as the city's first Micro Hotel. It was great. The room was small and very nice. Plus it had a pizza restaurant/bar that was extremely popular with the locals. It packed the rooftop bar every night I was there. I also noticed the hotel employees did EVERYTHING... front desk, watering plants, housekeeping; I even saw an hotel employee with a hedger trimming the landscaping outside.

I tried to book there again this spring, but it was full. I don't see why this wouldn't be successful in Dallas

I've been to that restaurant/bar! My brother went to GWU and when I went for his graduation they took us there..so I guess the locals do like it. Something like that hotel would definitely work in Dallas.
