I'm excited for Mendocino Farms but that's a bizarre statement for sure!

Food options at 2000 Ross are decent, will be nice to have more choices this close to work.

https://www.dallasnews.com/business/real-estate/2020/05/27/downtown-dallas-hotel-tower-project-is-moving-ahead/

Developers planning a new downtown Dallas luxury hotel are moving ahead with plans to start the project.

Plano-based Sam Moon Group plans to build the 283-room JW Marriott hotel on Ross Avenue across the street from the Trammell Crow Center office skyscraper.

Plans for the 15-story luxury hotel – to be built on top of a new 10-story parking garage at Ross and Harwood Street – were announced last fall.


Looks like the hotel is a go.

If the hotel starts whats the likelihood we would get the residential portion since we haven't seen new construction residential in Downtown Dallas except in the Farmers Market area. Up until now everything apartment residential in the CBD has been old building conversions. I mean we are basically out of buildings to convert to residential unless one of the existing office buildings unexpectedly closes and becomes a candidate.

Well also 2400 bryan street aka "The Galbrieth" is under construction. 300 pearl in the east quarter, and all the 50 new homes being constructed by the farmers market

Like I said outside of the Farmers Market. The Galbrieth is a valid point even though its target towards affordable housing makes it a little more unique. The comparison being we haven't seen the interest yet like we've seen in Deep Ellum, Uptown, Oak Lawn.

Maybe they are waiting to see how AMLI and Atelier do before committing to another new residential project so close to Ross. Don't those two account for close to 700 units?

Actually over 700. Somewhere around 740.

^That's great, if I was at work I could just look out the window to see if and when some activity starts happening but not yet. Maybe by July we will.

Last we knew "they" (the owners of this property/development) are waiting for an apartment developer to show interest in and buy that part of the property from them.

Which sounds about right. They being Trammel Crow tower owners were only interested in building a parking garage. The hotel and residential were just ways to get the garage project through the development cycle in city hall. Promise a Gucci bag and a Bentley parked out front, but deliver a Jimmy Johns and a parking lot.

Barring some groundbreaking shift in engineering/construction methods, the parking garage will always be the first part of any project to be built (leave aside for a moment the pipe dream that more than a handful of Dallasites will embrace a car-free lifestyle within our lifetimes). On top of that, should a project run into financial difficulties, the parking portion has some independent utility as public parking. Everyone complaining and/or casting aspersions about the true motivations of the developer should be happy that despite all the supposed "broken promises," the garage was engineered and built such that it could support an apartment/hotel complex on top. A greedy developer wouldn't go to the extra expense of over-engineering a standalone parking garage if they never intended to further develop the structure when demand warranted it.

It is a nice looking garage and good retail tenants are occupying the first floor. That’s already a big improvement over what was there.

Most projects seem to start late but I suppose they could be doing some prep work on top that we just can't see.

I love the way this part of downtown is filling in. I hope the momentum spreads to other much needed sections.

A mural has been added to a white panel on the Ross/Olive corner of the garage/restaurant building.

Had to go back and look, 15 story hotel on top of 10 floors of parking. Not bad.
