Cesar Chavez Building Update #5

As I mentioned in a previous post, the Cesar Chavez modernization is going along very well and seems to be almost complete. The facade is pretty much complete and the final touches seem to be coming along on the front of the building. Let’s take a look!

This is looking at the project from the front. You can notice that it is a lot ‘glassier’ than the previous entrance and facade. On the right you can see a couple letters titling the building, but it appears they are being taken down. Perhaps there was a design change.


On the left is the competed parking garage. I like how there is a screen and even though it still looks like a parking garage, it’s aesthetically pleasing to the eye. On the right is another upper view of the awesome solar panel structure on top of the garage.


I am glad this building is no longer a green eyesore in the community. It’s very pleasant to look at and many people I have spoken with think it’s a brand new development.

    It looks like they are removing the short drive lane in front of the building (facing Speer). Is that the case or is it just the staging area for construction? It would be great if the street is removed and plaza was created. Anyone know?

    Dave, that short stretch of street will be reconfigured into a street/plaza:

    It certainly is a big improvement over the old place.

    I really hope that solar panels over parking lots and roofs is an increasing trend, it’s good for the environment, protects cars and keeps buildings cooler.
