#104264 Fort Worth Daily Digital

After I took this shot, a couple from Florida stopped to ask me what building that was and when it was built.  I told them and they told me that this was their second trip to Fort Worth and they really liked the city.

That is a nice photo of the city.

I was going to reply on the location yesterday afternoon, but I didn't get to it.  JBB has nailed it.

I have already posted this photograph on Architecture in Fort Worth's Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages, but I thought I would post it here on the forum.  I took this picture on Friday when the lighting conditions and the sky were just perfect.  It is a shot of two buildings that have been maligned here on the forum.  The subject matter is the Fort Worth City Hall (1971) by Edward Durell Stone and the AT&T Building (1926-1971) by Komatsu Associates.

Austin, I was going to wait until Frost appeared finished from a distance.

 

In digital form, my photographs from the Amon Carter Museum start in 2002.  I'm sure I still have some old prints from earlier than that.  I also went back and looked for some from other nearby points.  I actually have a scanned photo that was taken from the UNTHSC in 2000.

I'm willing to bet that any signage that Sundance puts up with the Nissan name will be very discrete and subtle.  There also may be very few things that show the Nissan name.  The DDRB hears all cases regarding signage, so I'm sure that if there are signs that will be placed, it will go before the DDRB in a public hearing where anyone, including member of this forum may express their opinions.

3rd Street Bar and Grill to open up in the Carnegie Building.  This is reported in the Fort Worth Business Press.

Austin, we posted this at the same time, yet we provided two different links.

Yes, I have, and I think a lot of others have noticed.  I think we should all be in the Christmas Spirit and we should celebrate the season and not worry about a tree that leans a little bit.  Nothing is perfect.

As an architect, I had noticed problems with the masonry veneer had started not too long after the building was completed.

It will be nice to have a place that serves food back in this space.  Many years ago, when I worked in Tower I, I enjoyed having the Firehall Deli at that location.

The plaza celebrates its 4th anniversary today.  I went down to the plaza at lunch and walked around, then I went back that evening and on Saturday and on Sunday.  We also had a forum meeting on opening weekend.

The DDRB Meeting was cancelled, due to a lack of a quorum.  It will be rescheduled.

Bank of America has relocated it's offices to Sundance Square.  The ground floor banking center is yet to be completed.  The Fort Worth Business Press has a story on the move.

Changes are coming to Hoya, as well.

Oh, no!




#104617 West 7th Development

Posted by John T Roberts on 31 July 2017 - 08:07 PM in Commercial

It's now a part of the Crockett Row development, so I'm betting that it will be similar in appearance to the other buildings already constructed within the development.




#101585 West 7th Development

Posted by John T Roberts on 10 March 2017 - 10:14 AM in Commercial

Jeriat, I would like to apologize to you.  I did a property search for that block and I'm almost certain that I was incorrect.  It appears that they are under the same ownership as West 7th.  However, when Historic Fort Worth was involved to save Salsa Limon, it was a different group who were developing the property.  I did know that another developer bought the block after that deal fell through, but I was under the impression that it was not the West 7th developers.  I'm sorry that I gathered a wrong conclusion.

 

I guess that I got caught up in the idea that Salsa Limon was going to be saved and moved.

Which remaining open lot?  If you are talking about the block bounded by Crockett, Norwood, Morton, and University, that is not a part of West 7th.

Maybe they raised the rents too high.  Since this is a different owner than the actual West 7th Development, they will probably find a way to lease the vacant spaces.
