Haha.. well that was certainly fun while it lasted. I'm really hoping the developer does find some way to incorporate this into their future development though.

Like I said before the whole fiasco started the developer will have pictures and artwork done up maybe even a piece of the tear down will be turned into sculpture. Mind you by then it will be a distant memory. The News cycle was quite serious with all the CoronaVirus news and Trump stuff that this story blew up cause it was a distraction from the doom and gloom. Any other day and it would have not been as big of a deal.

You mean the 2020 warning tower...that tower predicted the year so far and the length it took to finally come down.

De La Vega Development takes $2.5B mixed-use project The Central back to the drawing board

https://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news ... pdate.html

"We’re in the design process and are working with the city on documents for two high-rise towers. We had to scrap the last phase, which was already designed, as we have different partners and a different deal structure now," De La Vega said Wednesday.


The redesign is expected to include elements found in the original plans, in addition to changes relevant to a post-COVID-19 world. While the new plans will still include high-rise office and residential, retail and a public park, De La Vega said some of the buildings are being redesigned to include better air filtration systems, touchless technology and more natural light. He also emphasized a focus on health and wellness, starting with a proposed four-acre public park.

I think this entire project is a pipe dream. They may get one or two 10-story buildings, but that's about it. Eventually, I see mid-rise apartment buildings littering most of the site.

That's honestly the best thing that could happen at this point. I wouldn't be mad at all if that happen.

Leasing of the office tower is being handled by JLL. De La Vega is hoping an anchor tenant will be secured before the project is ready to break ground.

"Otherwise, it would be difficult to finance," he said.


This is the key point many of us already know but nice to see it written out in plain language. If he doesn't sign a lead tenant he will probably start selling off the land or be like Spire and just sit on the land for a decade hoping something pops up. His only advantage I would say is that by offering a project with more health and safety features related to the spread of COVID he could snag someone looking to make a splash by moving staff to a new "state of the art" facility. Even with a vaccine, it will take years to eliminate the fear completely and that is if it COVID-19 doesn't evolve making the vaccine useless.
