"before long the
girders were rising and neighboring merchants were protesting. A seven-story building, they complained, would cast a shadow
over Fort Worth's entire downtown." Quote from http://www.fortworth...on.com/arch.asp



I bet they really would complain about the Burnett Plaza!!!! LOL

The Flatiron is about to get a neighbor, per the FWBP. We saw this in the DDRB agenda a few days ago but now the plans are public,

Right now that narrow little spot is just a wall and I think it has a pool behind it, I believe it's attached to the motel. I really like the way it looks, I usually like the juxipositon of old and new, and this also does so without overwhelming the Flatiron at all. My biggest concern is the ground level on Houston. The article says it will have 2 parking spaces, I really don't think having the entrance would be great right from there, perhaps there is a way to connect this buildings parking with the existing parking entrance to Park Central (see here) Interesting and creative use of space.

I like the infill development and agree that some other arrangement for a driveway could be found. Is the developer the owner of the hotel? It looks like the balconies on the north side will have to go to fit this duplex in.

When we were discussing this yesterday, I was thinking that this would have to go before the Landmarks Commission, as well.  However, this is a separate piece of property and may not be viewed as an addition to the Flatiron.  The Park Central Inn is owned by the same people who own the Flatiron Building.  This is all under one property ownership.

BTW, this looks to be under construction. They've got the sidwalk and some road blocked off.

They have a steel frame erected on this lot now.  Looks like they are making good progress.
