The West End

Recommended Posts


Damn, I wanted to go to the DRB meeting yesterday but was out of town.  Anyone go?  An item of concern to me is the Sphinx renovations.  This spot is notorious for beggars and drunks and police calls, would love to see them forced to address this before building a bigger store (like eliminating the sale of singles and eliminating "escape paths" for people to run out when they see blue lights coming would be an excellent start).

The DRB discussion was only related to the sign.  I believe this location is outside the zone the DRB covers, and thus only review the sign, not the full renovation.  The Spinx rep did mention they were going to landscape the sign in such a way that people wouldn't be able to use it as a bench for example.

Thanks for the update.  If they dont take measures to prevent this location as being a beacon for beggars, addicts, and drunks than you can count me on the side  of more civic minded business owners.  QT at leaset is making an attempt I believe.

The QT also has to get Planning Commission approval and a zoning exception approval, so the city has a good bit of leverage there.  

I'm not aware of the Spinx having to jump through any of those hoops since it's an existing business.  

We will see, Spinx seems to be making a good faith effort on this, so hopefully it turns out well.

Spinx did have to ask for an alley abandonment. Not sure how much the leverage that the city could use for that, but it is something.

According to Realtor.com 401 Rhett has a pending sale.  It was listed at 1,575,000 and is .57 acres.  It has only been on the market 5 days. This is directly cross from the 400 Rhett apartments.

They need to cover up the windows that gives you a view of the bathroom however

Is there a thread for this somewhere? I thought this project was dead but I don't recall seeing this sign here before. Three pieces of heavy equipment and a Strange Bros. sign are on site as well.

FINALLY! It's nice to see something going into that building! (And it NOT being the Whiskey Hotel or whatever it was called).

Preliminary review of Fluor Field

The original project design team is involved in the proposed changes, which include a major renovation to the entry plaza, creating a pocket park for the city, new seating, new rooftop signage on the adjacent office building, bleacher seating upgrades, a new club at suite level, changing office space to season ticket-holders space and a new marquee sign.

There will be an opportunity for new public art, and additional ticket windows will be added as well as an outside elevator tower to office building. The biggest addition will be club space at third base, which will have interior and exterior seating.
