A Downtown Loft.

My daughter and her hub moved into a downtown Dallas loft apartment this weekend.  They kept their country house, but took the apartment close to work for convenience.  She took us on tour today of the historic old building they moved into.  Amazing.  Almost all the old architecture was left in tact, including doors that are sealed off (so they go nowhere) and multi floor textures in one space.  Here is a tiny virtual tour I took on my phone before the battery ran out.
Birdseye view from across the street.
Reflected in the office where hub works. 
Love the exposed brick.

Wonderful door knobs!
A sealed off door in the apartment hallway that goes no where.

Checking out some gardens and fountains below.


Just thought this was funny.

Lovely pool with color waterfall.
The Mobil Building where the Pegasus sits.

    1. I think that is what makes this space so intriguing. When we build our new home, I hope to use a lot of salvaged items to give it some "flavor".

    1. I can imagine a story line being written in this building, expecially with the empty doorways, original mailboxes, dead end halls and the door labels!

  4. What a beautiful old building. The hardware on the door is amazing. This is not how I pictured downtown Dallas. Always like little tours of places I have never been!

    1. That last pic is my fave too. I take a lot of sunsets on Instagram, so I rushed down to capture it.

  10. I too wouldn't expect this in Dallas. I always think of Texas as the land of the big and the new ;).

    Too bad we don't make buildings like that anymore.

    Thank you for joining our blog hop Jeannie! I think I've found a soul mate. Maybe we can gibbitz about our bucket lists? lol
