the personality of the city is already getting watered down by all the Californians and 'Yankees' that are moving in.

I rode a b-cycle past the Convention Center/Omni parking garage this morning and saw the lights on and what appeared to be drywall going up in the Northwest corner of the ground level retail space.  Does anyone know if anything is really going on there and if something might go in there soon?  All of the retail spaces have been empty since the garage went up.  Just curious.

Looks like Basecom Construction Services is the GC and is doing build-out work on the entire Houston Street side in order to make the space more appealing.


From Fort Worth:


This project will make improvements to the first floor commercial space making it more attractive to tenants and greatly reduce the tenants' finish-out and move-in time. The project will provide individual heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, suspended ceiling, lighting and a common restroom. The existing space, which has been vacant since it opened in 2009, has the basic infrastructure of central chiller plant, main electrical panels, security lighting, concrete floor, exposed ceiling structure and fire sprinkler system.

TWU refurbished the school prior to its move from Irving.  It was very nice and looked like every other law school inside with large auditorium classrooms and small classrooms.  It also has 2 large mock courtrooms and a 2 level library.  I should know as I was the SBA president who help dedicate the building


If there's a two level library then the second level is a secret level inaccessible by the normal stairs or elevators.
