STS new windows are complete. Taking down the scaffolding over the sidewalk.

Hard to tell from this photo but its really interesting to see through the glass and see pipes and things running all throughout the building. It's a really beautiful building, especially with the new glass, and the details on the cornice are really nice.

Yes; beautiful.  Can hardly wait for the street facade to be unveiled.

 

Glad to see and have some reassurance that Sinclair Holdings/Aslam is methodically proceeding with this important Downtown project.

The Sinclair looks really nice in color.  Thanks for posting and letting us know about the change.  I'm also anxious to see the hotel being completed.

Today, I purchased a small table-top tripod so I would have something to stabilize my camera when taking night shots without having to lug around my large and heavy tripod.  Tonight, I went downtown and just played around with it.  I didn't take very many photos, but here is one that I took of the Sinclair Building and its new lighting.

I thought it turned out quite nice, even though the tripod was resting on top of a trash can.  If you look carefully, you can see that I caught a few stars in the sky, as well.

Have they found a new home to relocate to?  I really liked that place.

Ojos has indeed closed. Already work going on tearing the space down. They will be relocating in "South Fort Worth" in 2018. Not sure exactly where but there ya go.

As in "Near Soutside"?  Or far south?  (I know, you don't have that information.)  I could see them moving to South Main Village (lots of stuff going in there), I could also see them moving further south, to Cityview area perhaps.

From a post I noticed on facebook, Ojos stated 'will be relocating near South.' I would think NEar SouthSide but, who knows.

 

living far south, it would be a fresh change of pace to have one open near me.

Define "far south". 

Like what area or major intersection...

I don't think anyone would consider Berry "far south".  Maybe that's more like Memphis:  The Mid South.
