Not related to City Place directly, but this line in the article gave me pause:

"Motioned unanimously to deny an application for signage installation at a Texas de Brazil restaurant, located at 101 Houston St. due to board members, staff and DRC stating they felt the signage was not what would best represent the business and its needs."

That sounds pretty over-reaching in my opinion. Isn't Texas de Brazil in a much better position to determine what best represents their needs? That's none of the board's business. If they don't want the sign, just say it.

The Aloft's construction elevator came down today. The website lists a February 1st opening.

Old post, but in rereading it, it strikes me that it might not be Texas de Brazil's business needs they're interested in.  :unsure:

I've heard a rumor that the (still not open) Aloft folks thought the subway tunnel remnant was a unique space and want to use it for something, perhaps a restaurant or bar? Would be a really amazing and unique space, how many venues are in old subway stations?! That's the type of things that can put FW on the map as being cool. Again, not sure any details on this so take it with a grain of salt.

You know what would be even cooler?  If the tunnel actually carried a subway.
