How much of that building is empty since Oncor moved into 777 main?

 

33% leased per the sale document

I wonder it would be a good candidate for conversion to residential, then? The floors aren't as deep, and it's the shape of a T, so each apartment or condo unit could have plenty of windows.

It could also be converted into another hotel.

A hotel makes great sense given the proximity to the soon-to-be-expanded convention center, but I do worry we are starting to over-saturate that market.

I would suggest apartments.

Austin, you may be correct on that concern.

The Subway in the building on Houston Street has closed.  I saw that when I was in Downtown today taking pictures of Deco969.  I was planning to walk around more, but and old friend called me and we talked for 30 minutes.  I parked on one of the concrete retaining walls in General Worth Square to visit.

The nomination to the National Register of Historic Places was approved a couple of weeks ago.  The building now is officially designated at this level.  The listing in Architecture in Fort Worth has been updated.
