Really wrapping up quick. All glass is up and the patio areas even appear to have heaters out. The barricades on 5th street are beginning to come down. The sidewalks and lobby are clearly a few weeks from being done but we should get a good look at them now without the barricades. Big things left to look for are lighting and the Frost logo.
Starting in May of 2018, Tarrant County College will be purchasing bus passes for all 50,000+ students in their district to help their students get to class. TCC's Student IDs will work as their bus pass, and they can utilize the pass anywhere that currently gets service. Tarrant County College is also working with Trinity Metro to extend service to campuses that currently do not have service.
The Tarrant Transit Alliance will be partnering with Tarrant County College to help promote this partnership and educate their students on how to utilize these services. This is a huge win for transportation utilization and ridership and we look forward to watching this program roll out in the coming months!"
Here's a design of my own. The main tower consists of two intersecting pentagons, the roof topping out at about 650'. The tower is topped by a 200' glass crown and spire which takes a lot of inspiration from Austin's Frost Tower. When viewed from above the crown is in the shape of a Lone Star.
FWTA has bought 6 New Flyer Xcelsior buses, the 60 foot bendy model. I'm curious to see where these will run, currently the only bendy bus route is SPUR donwn Lancaster to Handley. The article also mentions the option to purchase 40 more buses. Currently the T has 76 buses in the fleet.
Evidently the Renovo debacle didn't change Museum Place's plans for a 9 story office on Block B (to the East of Van Cliburn where the demolition recently took place) as this is in the upcoming Board of Adjustment agenda
BAC-18-012 Museum Place Block B, Ltd. by Ray Oujesky, Kelly Hart & Hallman
3214 & 3230 Camp Bowie Boulevard
a. Request a VARIANCE in the “MU-2” High Intensity Mixed-Use District to permit the
construction of a 9 story building, excessive by 2 stories.
b. Request a VARIANCE in the “MU-2” High Intensity Mixed-Use District to provide 285 parking
spaces, where 241 spaces would be the maximum allowed, excessive by 44 parking spaces.
Previous renderings of this block show a 9 floor office and hotel, so perhaps that rendering is still accurate.
