Also it was dark, cave-like, rundown and always smelled bad in there.
The one in Plano smelled super bad too.

I think it would make a cool restaurant and bar. It definitely needs better lighting. Hopefully a fresh new concept comes through. The area could use something like that. There's no bar in this area.
John Zogg, a lifelong Dallas resident and managing director of Crescent Real Estate, has seen the West End through many incarnations. But this tranformation, he says, is different.
“Today, you see highly capitalized owners coming in and buying the assets. What they've done over the last three to five years is pour millions upon millions of dollars into those assets,” Zogg said.
“Over the last three years, there has been more capital spent in the West End than in the previous 30 years combined.”
There are new buildings, including The Luminary office building by Crescent Real Estate; and Factory Six03, the former West End Marketplace that Granite Properties reworked and reopened to tenants.
In addition, the West End is now home to the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum, Uber's Dallas office, the Dallas Innovation Alliance, Dallas Entrepreneur Center, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas' Innovation Lab, Sam’s Club’s technology division, and numerous tech and other startups. All are relatively new additions to the district.

Progress! The City of Dallas is installing an ADA accessible ramp and a new crosswalk to better connect the West End to Victory Park. Thank you to David Blewett, Dallas City Council D14 for advocating for this welcomed and much needed improvement.

Actually, it looks like my question has been answered already. I've biked through this alley once or twice, so I welcome this change. However, it seems strange given that there isn't really a cross walk here, so it's a bit unsafe to actually use this.
