I'm thinking so to.

The ownership names won't change until the contract is closed and recorded. The rumor is they have the sites under contract or are in the process of negotiating a contract. Even if they are already under contract, it could take months to close the deal. But it is just a rumor so who knows? My source is a Statesman employee, btw, not that that means anything.

I am purely speculating, but it sounds like Father will be taking charge on these new projects and not his son. I am guessing one is hotel and one isn't or mixed. It just seems odd to announce these intentions when the other had such a hard time getting off the ground is barely breaking ground now. It just seems like it's the old, "son you had your chance, now dad is going to take over".

I drove by the site on Monday, and it appears they already dug a big hole. Looks to be around 30ft.

The Canopy Walk over Red River and Waller Creek has its own site plan review. Still under review.

Site Prep is moving rather slowly on this project. There is a big hole and big piles of dirt and former parking lot pieces, but the activity on the 500 W 2nd St tower puts this one to shame.

Reservations are being taken for June 2017. Based on the site prep progress I think I'll wait.

You would think they'd push to be open by that March for SXSW.

This is from priller's awesome photo update in the compilation thread. Can we say this is U/C now that cement has been poured on the site?

They're still digging. The concrete they're pouring I think is to shore up the support walls for the pit.
