The Grotto's Swan Song


In Topic: Vee Lounge Restaurant coming to Downtown Fort Worth

I read in FWWeekly that The Grotto will close by year end.
The article said that the Grotto building was sold to a large food and beverage provider and that the building would be demolished for new construction.
Any rumors on who the buyer is ?

In Topic: "Left Bank"

I noticed there is a Left Bank for sale sign on the tract of land where the hotel was suppose to be.  I believe it said 3.x acres zoned MU-2 .... so I'm not for sure if the sign is just there referencing another tract of land, or if something happened to the hotel deal?
I did in fact learn that Valencia did pull their contract, so Left Bank is either looking for another hotel or to build apartments on the lot.  Seems like a waste given the direct access to the river and unobstructed views that parcel of land has .....

FW81 ... Any idea if they are still even wanting a hotel? I've left numerous messages with their development office and the Rea Estate company and can't get a return call. Have companies interested if someone would return a call!
I have learned that apparently the Valencia hotel deal is back on.  I really hope this gets done.  I think it would greatly benefit the whole development and the area in general desperately needs the hotel space. 
I do at times feel for the Left Bank development, I know originally Whole Foods was looking, Neimans, West Elm was originally under contract at LB and I think a few other stores that switched to Clearfork.  I just wonder if a few things like that would have came to fruition how much different it would have been.
The Valencia Hotel project is back on ?!
Thats great news!
