Old law firm has been vacant since December 2017 when there was one week of initial hazardous material removal (“pre-demo)” was done. Zero since then. Vacant lot is back to being a dog park and empty, boarded building is just an eyesore.

In January 2019 project was “indefinitely on hold”. Once the orange barriers on the back alley side of vacant lot are removed, I would say 100% dead. This was the third iteration of a proposed hotel in the location since 2012 so fairly sure it’s never going to happen

Probably will end up with an apartment tower proposal with a massive above-ground garage.

Neighbors fought very hard to ensure previous final plans - before they went to the planning commission- included only underground parking. My thought was that’s partly what made both projects too expensive (assuming cost had something to do with their demise)

I am aware but when the third round of suitors shows up to develop a distressed property city staff are likely to let things sneak pass them...

I really like the look of their SA tower. It's much nicer than the squat building they were planning here in Dallas.

The concept does look good, I agree. I wonder where they are thinking or if they are that serious.

This area is feeling really like a gap on McKinney. I wish they would move forward or sell so that block can fill in with new energized development.

It would fill in if Dream would sell it and move on.

I'm OK if they have decided to move on. IMO, the hotel was always going to be a challenge in that spot on McKinney Ave because the corner lot was not available. They lost the race to be the West Village hotel, Canopy grabbed that honor. It will be a little while before another hotel is needed in the immediate vicinity. Doesn't Central Market towers include one in it's plans. Knox-Henderson on the other hand has no hotel since RH scrapped their Guesthouse concept. Just sayin'

Sell the lots to someone who will develop yet another 20-story apt building on the lots. That is probably best use for this particular block.

Also, another hotel has already been announced to go right near this site so it's not like the area is that dead of hotels if that one goes up and the Canopy is doing well and the Marriot over at Fairmount and Carlise is already mostly completed Uptown is not devoid of hotels.

I wish they’d sell and get that eyesore cleaned up or demolished once and for all. I don’t understand why Dream is still holding on to the property when they know they aren’t going to build on it.
