Re: DTD: Farmer's Market 1.0

Its also huge footprint-wise. It feels it should be 3 restaurants not one.
Maybe Mudhen would be part of a multiple concept set-up. That may be a problem with the kitchen tho.

These types of projects are the new version of a revenue producing 'parking lot'. Make money while you own the land. unfortunately with a parking lot, you can redevelop quickly. With a project like this, 30-40 years.

Just a shot in the dark here; would there be a possibility to have an exit Staircase or escalator from city place to the east side of 75? It's technically under 75. I would think that would be a game changer for this whole side.

I actually prefer this design to the mirror. Also,because this is residential, it would have balconies, so it would look different anyway. I think this compliments Fountain place quite nicely. How awesome that they are 30 years apart yet look quite harmonious.

Re: Downtown Dallas: Butler Brothers Building

Couldn't the window arches be re-cut while maintaining the stucco?
It does seem that would have conflicted with the brick exposing issue.
I agree, that would have made a big difference even with this paint color.
Still, an active, occupied building beats a vacant one.
