  1. Sure. It's extremely desirable from purely a location perspective, but every location comes with its respective issues- parking availability, size of the property, market rent, condition of the building, property taxes, etc. This becomes even more pertinent if, say, you have an absolute lease where the tenant is responsible for everything.

  2. Don't suppose you might share with us what you know about "much more to the story"?

  6. They are building a hard rock hotel across from my place. It blocks about 3/4 of my view of Mercedes Benz stadium, so it better be cool when it opens.
  7. Bummer, on the view...hope its a good one though.

  13. Have seen both sides of the story when it comes to tenants and holding companies/landlords.

    Most commonly, the landlord is overvaluing their property and tenants leave because it becomes no longer a profitable situation. Then the tenant moves out and the space sits vacant for 1-2 years. Well, that didn’t go so well for the landlord, did it? But that is common with big holding companies. Logic is not applicable with them.

    From a logic standpoint: If the landlord thinks they should get a higher rent but the tenant is not willing. Give the tenant 6 month extensions until the space is leased out. Landlord gets the higher rent on next tenant but doesn’t lose rent with space sitting vacant.

    Another issue is overvalued property where profitability over the long haul is not sustainable for a chunk of businesses. Again, holding companies would rather have vacant spots than adjust. The hotel industry model does pretty well with adjusting to demand. An empty room is zero income generated. A discounted room is better than a empty room.

  14. I've heard that it's a pretty good sized hotel. Will come in not long after our new TCU hotel on Berry street opens.
  15. Btw, haven't had any issues with traffic at the [ Cumbie’s red zone playcalling ]ters since everyone left.
  16. No, that's in the existing space where Tom Thumb and Fresh Market were. My office is literally right above it.

    He's talking about there the old motel was. It will be more retail and restaurants.

    What I've been told is that Trademark would like a boutique hotel in part of that space and move Silver Fox as part of it. Silver Fox spent a significant amount of money updating their current space a few years ago and is balking. Trademark needs that footprint for more parking.
  17. Yep, that's right. I had the wrong deal. Some pretty horrible timing for them, it will surely get modified/watered down I would think.
