Well, the article seems to keep the ruse going about this being more than a parking garage.

2000 Ross Ave. is the big mixed-use development with 351 residential units and a 227-room hotel. The 26-story project encompasses an entire city block with frontage on Ross Avenue, Harwood Street, San Jacinto Street, and Olive Street.

Assuming the residential and hotel come eventually, I'm totally fine with this development. The end result will be great, and all they did was expedite the retail and parking garage phases. If we wanted the entire development all at once (residential, retail, garage, and hotel), chances are, we'd still be stuck with an empty surface lot for a little while longer.

^ Agreed. Assuming the hotel and residential components do eventually arrive, I think this is a fantastic development.

A little birdie told me the hotel portion is in the works with a hotel flag that is not currently in the Dallas market.

Funny, I was in New Orleans recently and walked past the Hyatt Centric there. That was the original flag that was associated with this project. Maybe Andaz would be a better brand here since they claim to be for people interested in the arts.

Hey, im happier as long as they finish the job. The design was dumbed down considerably from their initial concepts but I've been on this forum long enough to know the difference between concept renderings and actionable cost developed renderings. How many Teslas and Gucci bags can you fit into one rendering...

Maybe the time capsule will be ready to open around the same date the hotel portion is complete.

Southpaw's Grill is now open next to Roti and down the street from 400 Gradi. It's nice to see the 9-to-5 crowd engaging with this new development.

I went to 400 Gradi Saturday night and we ate on the patio. The patio was pretty popular both Friday and Saturday night. It was a really pleasant evening and the staff were super attentive and friendly.

Tried out Royal Blue on Ross on Friday night. It was hard to tell it was open since they don't have the neon signage yet. We sat out on the patio for this as well, and as soon as we did a few more people realized it was open and came by. The guy behind the counter said it's really busy during lunch time.

Oh yeah, food was really good. We just got pizzas at 400 Gradi, and everything tasted fresh. We just got cake and coffee at Royal Blue, and both were good as well.

I love how the renderings are trying to make it look very Klyde Warren Park by picturing the property from the museum lawn. Too bad the design is just a glorified cereal box with the JW logo on it. I love the concept of simple design but they still built the most boring looking project in Dallas. Apple does it well, the developer here just built a few gift boxes that are just blah.

Great news that JW is the flag though and that it's coming Downtown!

Fantastic news to see the hotel phase move forward and as a JW Marriott, which has been on the downtown wish list for so long.

As for the design, it won't win any awards but in the context of surrounding beige towers it really does stand out as something positive, especially with so much retail at street level.

Love seeing a JWM Coming to DTD. I think the garage design is actually pretty nice and I’m sure the hotel will have that same modern look which actually is a nice contrast in that location.

Awesome, been wondering when JW would set up in Dallas. Glad they are coming into the central core. Nice fit for downtown.

Great news! So I know there some concerns that this project would end up being a parking garage only for a while, but I guess we can put those concerns to rest now? I know they still owe us a residential high-rise, but it certainly seems feasible for them to kick that off once the hotel portion is completed (I'm totally pulling this out of my ass, and not basing this on any concrete information).

Have to wait and see how it looks once the exterior starts getting placed but overall I like it.

This is wonderful news for downtown. It's a great location. I took heat on the North Park mall thread for saying it was a bad idea to build it by the mall instead of building it downtown. Guess the actual developers who crunched the numbers came to the same conclusion. This will do well!

I'm hoping this will bring in the Conrad and a Mandarin Oriental brands. Get them built in time for when the Superbowl comes back.

It's not coming back. Not until we build a downtown stadium.

I think speculation is that Mandarin Oriental will be opening in the 2999 Turtle Creek development... I actually like this project though. I think the final product will look better than the renderings.

Big week for hotel announcements. JW and Mandarin Oriental now in the game. With Kimpton signing on for the Epic hotel project and Thompson Hotels signing on for 1401 Elm, what flag (if any) do y'all see as likely for the current Uptown Pizza Hut site? St. Regis? Something more down-market (unlikely)?

This was a really cool property in NYC hotel group out of London. Probably Dallas market isn't quite up for this but it was a great fun property.
