In the discussion about neighborhood scale and parking and historic preservation, the views of downtown from any potential 5th floor roof top amenities deck needs consideration. And it's not just downtown views improving the sellability of Old East Dallas mid & highrises, Uptown has grown into a contiguous expansion of the skyline. Views have value and as Old East Dallas rises, Uptown real estate benefits as the Dallas skyline grows. Hopefully the Peak-Haskell Corridor will enact a competent and directive rezoning guide for all of East Dallas. Encouraging extra-hi density in some spots will allow other spots to remain low density while acting as the foundation of greater employment opportunities.

Also with the rumors of Uber wanting to make Deep Ellum there new hub they could lease space in this project as well...which if the city is trying to ensure incentives snag Uber you could see the city let this project get by if Uber has shown some favor here as well as the Epic project.

Interesting! I actually like this one a lot, potentially that is. If they do a good job of making this look like a historic building with a modern addition on top, kind of like what they are trying to do with the historic garage in the West End. But it all depends on the final outcome but it does have a lot of potential.
