Let’s face it: this week was kind of an emotional mess. If you were supporting Hillary Clinton and expecting her to win, like most of the media did, nearly all the pollsters, and of course the pundits, you were devastated, cried, and probably feel a bit wrung out by now. If you were a Trump […]

OhK! Preston Hollow Billionaire Kelcy Warren Buys Rights to Name Woodall Rogers Park for His Son, Klyde

By Candy Evans / February 21, 2012 / 11 Comments

Why is everyone so surprised over energy billionaire Kelcy Warren buying the naming rights to Woodall Rogers Park? It’s not like I haven’t been telling you this is a man who REALLY likes dirt. On February 18, Cheryl Hall at the Dallas Morning News had a dandy exclusive story about Warren’s (rumored) $10 million purchase of the naming rights to Woodall Rogers Park, our venerable 5.2 acre greenbelt park over the freeway that will frost the Arts District in green. He is naming it after his nine year old son, Klyde, who will have to intern there until he’s 21. Cool story, but it’s not as if I haven’t been telling you for years that Kelcy Warren is a cool, self-made man who likes him some real estate and also, apparently, music. While Warren did not make many changes to the Cole Smith designed home of Joyce and Larry Lacerte at 5323 Park Lane he bought in June 2009 for about $29 million, he did add a private, secret music studio hidden off a shoe rack in the spacious master closet. It is designed to be soundproof and that closet is the size of most apartments.
