So much better looking than the "mammoth block" residential projects that are currently springing up all over town and and the area.

I agree.  And this is yet another example of Dave's photography skills making something look great.

I can't wait for the addition of a restaurant (or two) in this project.  At present, the closest eateries to the Henderson/Lancaster area are the one in the Holiday Inn and one in the T&P Depot, neither of which excites my taste buds.

I completely agree renamerusk. I was in the area yesterday and I said to my partner that the street needs more trees and benches. It feels to barren in it's current state.

That's probably a good guess.  I had to go to a continuing education seminar at Idea Works Fort Worth at lunch, and I was driving eastbound on I-30 for the first time and I noticed the upper sign from the freeway.

Since I brought up the subject of the signage in my previous post, I thought I would make some additional comments.  Yesterday, I attended Rick Selcer's Downtown Fort Worth Walking Tour and I parked in front of the T&P Warehouse.  Another sign has been installed on the west side just above the first floor windows noting "Pinnacle Bank".  There is a large sign band all the way around the first floor on this building and there will be others when the retail shops open on the first floor.  However, when returning to the start of the tour at the T&P Terminal, I noticed another large sign on the north side parapet noting "Pinnacle Bank Place".  I'm wondering if they are starting to plaster too many signs on the building's façade.  Is the one on the north side really needed if another building is ever built to the north on Throckmorton Street?

Your wondering is well taken.   There is a point, probably already gone by [3 signs] , where the number of signage is too garish.

There are currently four on the building now.  Two are for Pinnacle Bank Place on the top of the building on the north and south sides.  Then there are two more Pinnacle Bank signs with one being four floors below the Pinnacle Bank Place sign and the other being on the west side of the building above the first floor windows.

I am guessing that the two for the bank and the two for the complex were approved by the DDRB.  Other retail businesses that move in will be required to have their individual signage approved.

The DDRB agenda in December has an application for permission to install signage at the address of Pinnacle Bank Place.  I'm wondering if there will be more project signage, or a retail tenant has signed up and this is the signage for the tenant.

I walked by there on my way to the Downtown Walking Tour yesterday.  It is definitely starting to look "finished".  I also looked in the windows and the easternmost ground floor space looks as if it would be a great location for a restaurant.

Dr. Raulston, the dentist currently operating in Century Plaza, will move into Pinnacle Bank Place. This had been rumored for a while but now confirmed. 

 

Of course that fuels speculation that tenants are clearing Century Plaza so it could be replaced by a Residence Inn, thread on that here.

Pinnacle Bank opens next week in Pinnacle Bank Place.  The Star-Telegram has an article and a question on whether this building will spark a rebirth on the southern end of downtown.  The link is below:

The Fort Worth Business Press also has a story on the bank opening:

I am likely going to like these buildings when they are finished.  The style is more reflective of its immediate surroundings than what is popping up elsewhere around town. 

 

The finished product is sharp and fits well into its environs.

I like the mix of retailers. Bank, saloon, dentist. Coffee shop. Feels like a very "mature city" development.

I told him that the area could be called "The South End"

Yes there is but I know several big cities that use generic names.... midtown, uptown, the near (blank)side
I don't think using the south end, just like Dallas' using the West End is that big of a deal but something distinct could work.

I feel like "Midtown" and "Uptown" are acceptable for any city. But some names just don't sound the same in other places, like Left Bank...

I'd rather just keep calling it the Lancaster Corridor.

I consider Lancaster Avenue Corridor a part of Downtown. Does it really need to be consider a district to itself. 

 

With that being said, I am all for giving the stretch of Lancaster from Jones Street to Montgomery Street a new name; a name that would reflect the fact of the monumental buildings that front it along that segment.

I finally got around to reading this article and I came across this quote towards the end.

"Meanwhile, on each side of the Pinnacle Bank Place two other residential projects are underway — the 200-unit Cadillac Lofts and 250-unit Burnett Lofts."

Unless I missed something I don't recall them being underway.

Being underway could also mean sill in the planning stages. I couldn't find any new Zoning or Permit records for that part of Lancaster though.

You get into a chicken-egg situation, but more residents and foot traffic would help draw that. And something that's a destination would draw more traffic. Is the tavern in the T&P building still around?

The feeling that usually comes over me when I am in this corridor I would describe as a broad way of grandeur epitomized by time-honored buildings. I hope to live to see it lined with mature trees of color and fully leafed.

Yes.  They do a pretty good business from what I can tell.
