Downtown Dallas' landmark Statler Hotel opens its doors after 3-year redo

Quote:
Almost two decades after the building closed, downtown Dallas' landmark Statler Hotel is back in business Tuesday with its first guests.

Developers spent three years and $230 million saving the Commerce Street building, which has been turned into a luxury Hilton Curio hotel, apartments and restaurants.

"We are proud to open the doors of the Statler, 60 years after Conrad Hilton brought it to downtown Dallas," said Evan Danziger, general manager of the 159-room hotel.
Quote:
After sitting empty for years, there was a push to knock the building down to enlarge the park across the street. The property made preservationists' list of the most endangered landmarks in Dallas.

In 2014, Farmers Branch-based Centurion American Development Group bought the Statler and —backed with almost $50 million in financial incentives from the city — began the renovation.

Along with the hotel rooms, more than 200 apartments were built on the upper floors.

The apartments, which opened a few months ago, are already about half leased.

"We did what we were supposed to do — we delivered on promises we made to the city of Dallas," said Centurion American CEO Mehrdad Moayedi.

Idle Rich Pub's days are almost over. In January they close their doors, which must mean construction of a new 18 story high rise will begin taking its place.
