Are they still talking about tearing the Dallas Grand Hotel down?

It's going through an ugly phase right now, but I think they should keep it. Dallas has a history of tearing down history.

I still can't get over the loss of the Dr Pepper plant.

Art House by psukhu in January:


World Aquarium expansion by psukhu last August, then October:



1001 Ross in the West End, among very many of the
disappearing uber-drab parking lots in the West End - shot by
mikedsjr in January (World Aquarium adjacent...):


Tilt-wall action for multi-level book and coffee infatuation in the
further build-out of West Village - shot by psukhu in January:

Facade mock-up...by psukhu


Facade mock-up of Ashton Place by Jammin:


Marketing Center for the W Dallas Hotel & Residences going up soon. Maybe a model inside - eventually?
Zom Rosewood announced adjacent to Prado at Ashton Place.
Fram announced development of adjacent lots in West End (1001 Ross notoriety.)

Euless updated rendering (take it for whatever it's worth...):

New renderings from Victory! These are from the great flash animations of renderings available at http://www.victorydallas.com/masterplan.asp -- this development was, originally, very impressive. The scaled down version was underwhelming, but still much much better than nothing. This is... unbelievable. This could really change the very face of Dallas and bring us back into the spotlight. Or maybe I'm too obsessed with Tokyo-style-designs.

Here are some images

Victory Plaza (retail, leads to AACenter)



Victory One Tower (Office/Residential)






Victory Commons (residential)




I can't wait until Fall 2006! (projected opening for all of this!)

Two more renderings of different announced projects:

the Ritz-Carlton (BEAUTIFUL, will be one of Dallas' gems once it's done):


A new building in the International Center (may end up being the largest sub-division of Uptown once all is said and done. The 30-story residential tower, announced but as of yet no rendering, will be a great addition, too):


Notice in that second one the small brick building in the bottom left corner. It's an old school, St. Anne's, that is a historical monument. It, by law, cannot be torn down. I think it provides a very nice contrast to the spot: older, little building against a large, post-modern highrise.
