That's real unfortunate. TCU and Near Southside hospitals have torn down literally hundreds of homes over recent decades in order to expand.

And now a plan to build over some parking.  TCU is planning a new facility for the music school that includes a concert hall:

This new facility could really add to the preliminary recital offerings for the Cliburn Competition, as well as other smaller ensemble performances. It would be great if TCU could establish or partner with another entity to sponsor a specialized ensemble like the Orchestra of New Spain over in Dallas.

It definitely looks like it will be a lovely facility.  I love the "cocoon" design of the current PepsiCo Recital Hall, but this new concert hall looks like it could take on larger audiences than the current recital hall.  Plus I doubt any of the current fine arts facilities would be replaced, anyways.

That said, TCU also has the Ed Landreth Auditorium for performances with larger audiences, but that facility is older and does seem a little bland on the inside from a design standpoint (at least compared to the newer PepsiCo Recital Hall and the Hays Theatre), although the front area of the auditorium and the stage do seem beautiful in their own way. Furthermore, the Landreth auditorium probably wasn't designed specifically with concerts and recitals in mind (though the Cliburn competition used the Landreth for quite some time before Bass Hall opened), since the facility can have other uses.  Other parts of the College of Fine Arts also use the Ed Landreth Auditorium (namely the TCU School of Classical and Contemporary Dance, although smaller dance performances can be accommodated in Erma Lowe Hall), along with the University for some functions and events like Convocation.

Hopefully this will be a facility that helps to better unify and consolidate the School of Music, as their classrooms and facilities are currently spread out across campus (the Walsh/Ed Landreth complex, Jarvis Hall, and between Bellaire North and Berry).

Another great Alamo Bowl comeback win for the Frogs last night in the prime time game on ESPN. In a great moment of foreshadowing, one of the announcers said shortly after TCU went down 21-3 that you can never count them out in the Alamo Bowl. Attendance this year was the lowest the game had seen since 2010, but it was still only down a little less than 7000 from the near sell out in the game 2 years ago. TCU football definitely seems to be on an upswing. Next year should be another exciting season.

If the basketball team wins on Saturday, TCU will be the only school in the country with all three of its men's teams in the major sports ranked in the top 10.  That's a fairly remarkable statistic, especially for a small school.

I watched part of that comeback! Redemptive for sure. Still holding out for the big prize--don't know if I'd rather see that happen before or after college football finally has real play-offs.

 

The sports array at TCU is certainly compelling, I hadn't realized the big 3 men's teams were so successful. School spirit is very important, it helps attract other benefits, too, and I have to say I'm more encouraged to learn the music department is getting the upgrades mentioned in the thread earlier. What about art? 

 

The intangibles are hard to measure and frequently show little "return" on investment, but I think these music, art, english, philosophy etc degree plans are as important engineering, computer science and medicine. but.... does Fort Worth have a technology partnership with TCU (and UTA) that would draw those high profile work groups to town? Incubators or Work Study or Unicorn or whatever it's called today, but the city and it's universities have programs energized by and symbiotic with companies.... like Texas Instruments and UTD. 

 

With all the energy potential in West Texas, I still think Fort Worth could be the "Houston" of the Texas Renewable energy sector: Wind & Sun. The best way to pull all those decision makers to town are with the most highly regarded university education.

Gary Patterson is an announcer on ESPN's Coaches Film Room for the college football playoff games tonight. It's an alternative broadcast where 6 D-1 coaches offer commentary as the game is shown live. Patterson was outstanding during the first game and got a lot of love on Twitter. After seeing OU twice this season, he was able to call the majority of their plays before they happened. He's a little more understated during the second game, but it's still worth watching.

TCU announces that they have entered into an agreement to lease the land at McCart and Berry for a hotel.  The lease is good for 50 years with 2 10 year renewals available.  TCU would have a say on the hotel brand which is expected to serve those dealing with the university as well as other visitors.

This is within the Berry/University Form Based Code district.  Zoning = BU-IX-6.  Requirements: Minimum height is 2 stories.  Six stories or 75 feet max. in actual height is permitted within this zone.  If you have Storm Water Management tradeoffs, you are permitted to build up to 10 stories with a maximum height of 125 feet.

Although I'm excited for this new hotel, at the same time, I expect that TCU will have to find more space for parking lots since even what they currently have does not seem sufficient for the commuter students and staff.  While the Sandage lot wasn't the most utilized, losing it is going to hurt especially once you consider the parking lot they are taking out near Brite to build the new recital hall.

It feels like you're a fish getting stalked by sharks when they see you walking through the commuter parking lots, hoping that you're leaving. They just slowly follow behind you in their cars. They should have just build a parking garage.

Here's the link to all the announcements- https://newsevents.t...u/stories/2821/

 

Rumor is that Sadler Hall (the main administration building) will be turned into academic space. It's alluded to in the article but not mentioned specifically. The thought is that buildings in the middle of campus should be for academic/student purposes and support services can be moved to the periphery. 

 

They're also looking to raise $750M to mostly go to the endowment. The goal is to make the university more accessible to all potential students regardless of income. Long term they want to double the endowment (currently about $1.5B) to make that possible.

Yeah the ultimate goal would be to compete with a school like Vanderbilt, which has a policy that if you can get in based on the academics, and you have financial needs, the school takes care of it.  They don't want anyone getting loans or having money be the problem.  Vandy's endowment is a bit over $4 billion.  TCU has some wood to chop.

Photobucket is just one of many photo hosting sites to crack down (or shut down) on users posting to internet forums.

 

The first photo hosting site I used (Webshots) fell under a few years ago. The second photo hosting site I used (Slickpic) started off by adding a small text watermark, then decided they would add a giant banner to the bottom quarter of any new picture I post. Other photo hosting sites have gone down, and some sites impose viewership limits that are out of an uploader's control.

 

I've given up on traditional photo hosting sites. Too many of them have taken down pictures posted to internet forums. That said, I do post videos from YouTube (a video hosting site), but YouTube is far more stable than any traditional photo hosting site.

 

I'm not sure what photo host Austin uses, but I assume it's a popular social media site. My 3rd party ad-blockers block them (though, for some reason, not YouTube videos or pictures on traditional photo hosting sites). I have to view Austin's pictures in a different browser.

I know this is completely off topic, but these universities are closing all of the heavily traveled bicycle routes on the South Side.  Look at the north/south bicycle traffic through the TCU campus on the Strava Global Heat Map.  Wabash is the main bicycle crossing point of Berry Street west of University Drive.  A few years ago, the Baptist Seminary requested for the removal of the W. Gambrell St. crossing at the BNSF Railroad Tracks.  This was an additional railroad crossing one block south of W. Seminary Drive.  This was also the main route for cyclists living in the South Side neighborhoods to make a connection into South Hills and to points further to the southwest.

I asked Jungus Jordan about that crossing (Gambrell) and he said the city is trying to eliminate all at-grade crossings.  From my new place I would have used that Gambrell crossing routinely.  Instead it funnels me up to Seminary, where I take the lane until 8th Ave.

 

As for Wabash... my crossing points are typically Lubbock or University itself.  There's a bike lane from Bowie north, and south of there I just take the lane (all the way down to Butler/Winfield).  I can't remember ever having trouble with the motor traffic.

Before TCU began its massive expansion, the street grid carried through between W. Berry and Bellaire Dr. N.  Odessa went through, but the median blocked traffic from crossing Berry.  Wabash and Rogers now continue through between the two streets.  The westernmost portion of the site had an old apartment complex on it and the block bounded by Bellaire Dr. N., Wabash, W. Berry, and Odessa had houses on it.  It now has a parking lot, and Odessa does not go through.  Txbornviking is correct, the block bounded by Bellaire, Rogers, Berry, and Wabash now also has parking lots on it, a small music building, TCU Human Resources, and one house.

 

Doohickie, I have been cycling in Fort Worth for over 40 years, and even before my accident, I actually preferred to take alternate parallel side streets over the main arterials.  Since my bicycle accident, I don't ride much and I'm not on the roads.  

 

I have heard some city officials say that they would like to get rid of all at-grade railroad crossings.  In theory, that would be a good idea, but very expensive to build bridges and tunnels everywhere.  The crossing closure at West Gambrell, also coincides with the silent crossing at W. Seminary.  Silent crossings do not have another one within a certain distance, and I'm sure Gambrell was within that zone.

I tend to prefer the side streets too, but I feel confident/comfortable on University.  Maybe because traffic already expects heavy pedestrian traffic in that area, it seems pretty chill in that area.

Interesting. I did not know that about the silent crossings.  You mention building bridges; I think the city is more of the mindset of doing what was done on Gambrell:  Eliminate crossings altogether.

Yes, I agree the city would prefer to eliminate crossings.  However, you can't eliminate them all.  Also, there is some point where life safety plays a factor with fire, police, and ambulance access.  If you eliminate too many, then response times will increase. 

 

It looks like I have derailed this thread.  Please pardon the pun.

I have revised the listing on the website to the best that I can.  The La Mancha Business Centre's website says that they are closed due to a change in ownership.

Lots of real estate around TCU is not owned directly by the university but by people connected to the university

Does this appear to be space that is owned by someone else, and TCU is leasing it for office space until they move those uses into an on-campus building? Or do you guys think that TCU actually bought that former church/office complex and is likely to use it going forward. 

Not that important - just curious since they have a lot of buildings under construction I could see how they might lease space off site during construction.

The ownership information on TAD is a little confusing, but none of it reflects that it's currently in TCU's name.

Salsa Limon Unversidad is closing. They say they are looking for a new location. Gotta wonder if the landowner there is running folks off. First Record Town, now Salsa.
