Re: Victory Park 3.0

It looks like they’ve started. I’ve seen construction equipment and ground torn up (on the site) driving south on Stemmons. Maybe 1 or 2 good piles of debris.

Re: Historic Images of Dallas

Also, the 1920's venue was more auditorium rather than a true Theater. You can tell because the sound is just so terrible and it had none of the amenities expected in 1970's musical theater compatible venue. It's really a hard thing to do to maintain history with this building and still make it use...

Re: The Cedars Developments

I was looking forward to the building’s restoration. Now, there’s no telling how long this site will be vacant. I wonder was there anyone in the building that set the fire? I know this isn’t the first time... sounds kinda fishy to me.

Exterior and interior pics of the Music Hall at Fair Park before the heavy renovation/addition in the 70s. Pretty much all of the 1920s decor was ripped out during the renovation. What's there now is a 70s style theater in a 1920s building. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47937430676_a20d5a3441_...
