I'm honestly rather confused about this one

Finished in 1913, the venue is one of few major examples of Art Deco in the city.[4] Perret's building was significant as an early landmark of reinforced concrete construction[5] and, at the time, shockingly plain in appearance.

Sadly it has been ignored. BUT, there are plans in the works...












It's being held up right now because they're waiting on the completion of a road connecting from downtown Ft. Worth to the Near Southside neighborhood.

Great news. Not enough massive buildings like that get thoughtful restoration jobs.

It's gonna take some years, but I'm confident that the plans will come to be.

It needs to match its neighbor down the street...

Star-Telegram Building Fort Worth, Texas

Sadly, the base of it was 'modernized'
Another cool example (And one of my favorite buildings in Fort Worth) is the Western Union Building 1930-1

If only Oklahoma City had managed to retain its history like Fort Worth has.

I have posted some of these already, but no complaints. They're all great shots.

And OKC still has Bricktown. Doesn't that have many historical buildings left?

Yeah it does, but they're more form follows function buildings, far less elegant then some of your ones. (And sorry, 30+ pages stuff gets lost. :P )
Some of our last old buildings in the Downtown core are about to be razed for a 27 story cereal box with an entire block of parking
