In Topic: Reit plans to demolish Westchester Tower and redevelop as mixed use

18 March 2018 - 06:28 AM

Really interesting Bud Kennedy column this morning about the history of the Westchester. I had no idea it had been so luxurious, with a "dress boutique, shoe shop and posh 1960s private club with cabana, heated pool and a steady stream of showbiz stars." http://www.star-tele...e205258019.html

The hotel is nearing completion. 
The bar will apparently be called Wild Pitch, so apparently a sports bar concept.  I wonder if it will be a straight up sports bar or if they will try to challenge nearby Twin Peaks.  They have an advantage over Twin Peaks in terms of access; they are right by the entrance to the development, whereas to get to Twin Peaks you have to drive through an often crowded parking lot near Fudruckers.

Both the hotel and Wild Pitch are now open.

In the same development, a hotel is going up across the parking lot from Ashley Furniture. They had to fill in a lot of earth and reclaim the spot from the retention pond (Citylake?), as is visible from the satellite image from September: http://bit.ly/2FvFwN2 Google Maps labels this site as a Fairfield Inn, but there's no indication on the Marriott website yet.

In Topic: Hulen/Bryant Irvin Restaurant Changes

1. There's a For Lease sign in front of the Denny's at Hulen and 20. The restaurant appears to still be open, so I'm not sure if maybe the sign refers to another space in the shopping center behind it.

2. The lot at roughly 5011 S. Hulen has been cleared. That's next to Mexican Inn and across from Barnes and Noble. It was previously two strip centers: https://goo.gl/maps/GbivYdQUaQ62 Anyone know what's taking their place?
