As you know, today the Dallas City Council was to discuss and vote on the proposed skybridge at Preston Center at 1:00 pm. I’ve just received word from Councilwoman Jennifer Gates that she plans to file a motion to delay the debate until November:

I would like to share with you the motion I plan to make regarding addendum items #36 and #40 (skybridge in Preston Center), so you may plan accordingly. Based on the public input I have received, I have determined that these items need to be delayed until November. I am hopeful that this time will allow us to address the issues related to the parking garage in Preston Center. This motion will be made at the public hearing scheduled for this afternoon.

As it turns out, the Dallas City Plan Commissioners were just as impressed with the proposed Preston Center Pavilion skybridge as we were. It’s a fantastic way to add more patio space, as well as a safe way for pedestrians to cross a busy intersection without having to dodge traffic.

Remember, we got an exclusive detailed look at the proposed skybridge and remodeled parking garage last month. Check out the renderings and read more about this project from Crow Holdings after the jump:
