This site plan by midway confirms that:

-they are building a 250 room hotel on Fannin/ Dallas

-Six new restaurants coming to Greenstreet on the first floor

-on second level  there will be a 30,000 Square Feet Fitness center

^  Cool.  Note that the site plans states that the Fitness Center, the hotel and the six restaurants (plus an "office" space on the second level) are all "under negotiation".

 

The site plan also indicates two additional spaces designated as "office", another as "office/restaurant" (all on level 2), a "restaurant/bar" space on level 3 and a couple of undesignated spaces on level 1.

...perfect planning thus far. but what about retail? downtown desperately needs stores for patrons to shop, isn't this the primary purpose for building this mall in the first place?

also, the "hotel" aspect is fabulous. with this addition, the center can not help but become successful.

I like this project. Reminds me of my home country. Shopping at the bottom; restaurants, hair salons, local news paper on 2nd level, businesses and offices on 3rd levels; and condos, hotels, apartments on higher levels.

Are you from Venezuela? I spend every summer there and it is the exact same way.

Having never been in HoB, I did not realize that it did not somehow occupy the second floor.

 

A 250 unit hotel on that kind of footprint would have to be atleast 8-10 stories, right?

 

EDIT - Just saw the 25 story note. That would be an interesting addition to watch come together.

GreenStreet expansion TBA soon:

 

That's good news for Brinsden, whose company is redeveloping GreenStreet, the former Houston Pavilions downtown.

"We're trying to evolve that into a true mixed-use destination," he said.

In about 60 days, the company is expected to announce an expansion at the complex, which now houses retail and office space.

"We think this project needed that third activity generator," Brinsden said.

Really? How does it benefit the Chron?

 

Not really sure.  I imagine it gets more page views, kind of a teaser, I guess.  Also maybe gets their articles to come up more often/higher in Google searches.

 

The service exists and the Chron, along with Dallas Morning News and many other publications have signed up for it.  It's called First Click Free.

I'm originally from Sydney and have spent staggering time in Mebourne and that alley with shops reminds me of some of the outer lane ways in Melbourne. All that is missing are some tables in the alley for outdoor eating, some benches, and resi and hotel.

Some public art and mood lighting would be a nice touch.

Ah look at me blabber away

Publications with paywalls enable the full article to be accessed from search engines. This way the search engine can index the full story. They get click-through traffic from people that search words in the story. If nobody ever finds their articles on Google they risk losing relevance.

i hope this doesn't come off as a flame post, but i'm not really seeing what's so drastically different about this vs the old Houston Pavilions. But on the other hand, I don't even think i saw it when the renderings came out after this re-do was announced.

 

Hope my observations turn out to be wrong.
