It’s been a Ritzy week here at CandysDirt.com and I’ve got a different story to tell.
Having lunch at the Dallas Ritz with Kyle Crews from Allie Beth Urban was the perfect tee-up to my flight to Paris … where the Ritz legend was born. In a way it was also a harbinger. You see, there are four Regency Row townhouses associated with the Dallas Ritz, three of which remain unfinished shells. My arrival in Paris, 9-hours late after four planes and lost luggage, made my first 48-hours rather unfinished in a different way.
We’ve all driven by these odd townhomes wondering if they were really homes (they are) and not some elaborate Ritz stage piece masking some hidden purpose like an Oncor substation (they’re not). Now that the McKinney and Olive building, designed by award-winning architect César Pelli, is complete, the Regency Row townhomes have something nifty to look at. It sort of completes the street scene for this block.
