I thought the speedometer repair business was in the white building to the rear only, but my memory is not that clear. I know I had a speedometer gear replaced in the late 1960's there, wish I could remember the name.
I believe a speedometer repair business used the building.

XTO just recently purchased the Star Telegram Building.
A slight correction. The Star Telegram Building was purchased by Bob Simpson, not in any official capacity for XTO. Mr. Simpson is currently under a consulting contract with ExxonMobil and is no longer an officer or director of XTO or XOM
Thank you Mr. Roberts. I always get the two switched in my mind for some reason. The completely unverified rumor only sites the Oil & Gas Building
The Trinity River Vision office is in the Commerce Building, not the Oil & Gas. If this is true, and XTO did not purchase the Commerce Building, then I guess the lobbies would have to be separated again.
SHHHHHHH or you'll jinx it!
I was surprised that I didn't read about this new store here first. I thought that we had connected downtowners here :-) Wasn't there a thread here a little while ago complaining about the lack of a food store downtown and speculating on what would be a great fit?
It's only been rumored for 3 or 4 years now, think most stopped paying attention a couple years back. ...and what would be the likelihood of something going in during a recession when we couldn't get anyone to bite during the fat years.
I'll believe it when I'm shopping there, if they do open, they'll get my business simply because I want them to stay, not because this meat and tater guy prefers gourmet spuds, it's because he's thankful they're opening up a block away.
This thread started my brothers and me discussing the last real grocery store in downtown proper. We all remember the Leonards/Everybody complex on the north end, but both brothers claim to have a recollection of a working grocery store on the south end up into the 1980's. They both worked on a drive-in bank somewhere around the Burnett Plaza and recall this grocery. Ring any bells for anyone?
A rumor is circulating in our workplace that XTO Energy has purchased the Oil & Gas Building. Has anyone on this forum heard something similar?
I am not familiar with the "Oil and Gas Building". That is not the same as the "Petroleum Building" on Throckmorton that XTO bought 6 years ago, right?
Correct not the same, the Oil & Gas Building is at the corner of 7th and Taylor. It shares a common entrance off 7th with the adjacent Commerce Building. The lobby of the Oil & Gas Building is home to the Trinity River Vision project.
