Looks nice. I'm glad it will be in a walkable downtown instead of sprawling suburbia. That said, it's unfortunate there's no transit there.

Yeah, why Roanoke? Nothing comes immediately to the mind that can explain this particular location.

Other than it's going up in their booming downtown area, I can't think of much of a reason. Proximity to the corporate areas in Westlake and Southlake, TMS, and the airport are probably a factor.

Something like a Peabody Hotel (I've stayed in the Memphis one several times watched the ducks and all that bs) would be a huge boost for a Downtown Fort Worth that is losing its biggest employers. 

 

I didn't know the Orlando Peabody had been sold, maybe the business just doesn't work outside of Memphis.
