Appears that it will be U shaped with a central plaza, up to 6 retail slots, totaling 10k sq ft, and the 3 floors on the left will contain 12 residential units.

The plan has changed a bit. The first phase is 9600 SF of retail space in the ground floor in two buildings. There will be office space on floors two and three in the North building. The second story in the South building will have a large deck and a space that could work as office or retail. The Southern building could be one user with restaurabt below and rooftop bar and deck below. We hope to break ground in early May.

Not sure if this is part of it, but an interesting proposal from Bart Shaw for 1201 8th Ave. Click the picture for more.

I'm guessing the Bart Shaw design didnt make the cut. This is the design from the Near South video.

The site for this in the foreground, and a good look at the Oleander Apartments site behind.

This building will have a Potbelly Sandwhich Shop. If that comes to fruition, there will be a Subway, Jimmy Johns, Firehouse, and Potbelly within one block of each other. Construction should start soon.

It's more like the "Submarine Sandwich District".  This will not please one of my cycling friends. He is already disappointed with the way the intersection of 8th and Rosedale has evolved.  He will not eat at Chipotle because of their food scare.  He dislikes Jimmy John's.  He is not fond of that particular Subway location, and he thinks they ruined the old bank building by putting a Starbucks and a Firehouse Subs in it.

Was that an "old" bank building or a fairly new one that was vacant? That corner is a haven of corporate chain schlock. Firehouse is okay and I can be talked into Chipotle occasionally. The others I can take or leave.

It was not an "old" bank building.  It was a fairly new one that was vacant.  I will agree with you that the intersection is a haven of corporate chain schlock.  However, I don't constantly rant about how bad the intersection is every time I pass through.  My friend has a tendency to do this.

It is a large intersection and very pedestrian unfriendly due to the size of the streets. I wouldn't have expected more interesting restaurants to succeed there anyway.

I will admit that I would have designed things differently at that intersection, if I had such a project.  It is very pedestrian unfriendly with some poorly designed buildings.  We should expect better.

All of that being said, I like the building housing Jimmy John's and the doughnut shop.  It's quirky and more urban than a lot of other buildings in town.

I like the first 2 schemes better.....very modern. The final scheme seems more blah and they tried to spice it up w/ those currently trendy sloping mid-century looking rooflines. Maybe the office block could face 8th, the residential tower away from 8th on the east side. It would be nice if Oleander were extended through and the plaza opened onto that street to connect more w/ the southside area. BTW, I like the Jimmy Johns building too.....seems more inventive than most in that area...wish they screen the electrical boxes on that south wall though!

Trent Prim, who was interviewed in the article is a good friend of mine.  I have worked with him both professionally and as Board Members of Historic Fort Worth.

I like the building design.  Wonder whether to characterize it as "airy" or "transparent," because of the predominance of glassed windows and doors.

A demolition permit was filed for 1199 8th avenue, the Touch Stone imaging building. Curious to see what takes place of the building. 

 

Just glancing at TAD, it looks like the owner of this property owns several neighboring properties on that block.

 
 
Evidently, this is related. Here's a rendering I found of "Phase 2" of the Southside market project, which I assume could take the touchstone building's place.
 
5RPkQYM.png
 
It also looks like a Bart Shaw design, who seems to have also designed a concept for phase 1 (See post #3). You can see the soon-to-be demolished touchstone building in the overhead photo in post #5. The owners are all the same under TAD.

Whether artist, sculptor, or architect, one has to be applauded for showing immagination in a creation.  Having stated that, I, as a viewer, do not like the Phase II buiilding design.

Maybe if they incorporate some ambient lighting into the building it could soften it?

I would have thought this would do a little more to satisfy everyone that says that everything being built on the Southside looks the same since it is pretty unique.  That being said, I'll hold judgement based on the fact that this is a terrible and unrealistic rendering.  It might not look as bad when it blends more into whatever is or will go in around it.

I don't think the first rendering is all that inviting to the eye, either.  As to the new rendering I can't get out of my mind a vision of a gigantic bird cage or maybe, in miniature, one of those makeshift boxes that kids might put together to trap a game bird or rabbit for food.  Maybe this is unkind of the architect.  JBB, I don't think camouflage is the solution here.

Much better.... I just wish this design was taller and in a different location. I think it looks too modern for the area, but I'll take it over the previous version.

I meant to head back up 8th after Benitios. I caught sight of the new pitched roof just as I was turning onto Magnolia on the way to the Forum Meet.

I was impressed with the scale as much as any other characteristic, but the color does stand out. I also like that it's different from most everything else in that area.

An imaginative building design.  Seems like the modern look is to be glassy, transparent, less privacy on the inside.  What color other than copper?

This building is looking really nice.

From this rendering the southern building seems to be set further back from the street than the northern building and it has what looks to be a small plaza in front of it. The finished product doesn’t seem as set back as the rendering suggests and unless I’m not seeing things correctly there does not seem to be enough room to create a plaza-like area.

I’m kinda disappointed by that
