The Case Building Tops Out

The Case Building
3131 Main Street

The Case Building, the new apartment building located at the corner of Hall and Main Street, has officially topped out. A celebration was held at the project last week to mark the completed height. The event was catered by Pepe's and Mito's Mexican Cafe. 

The community, by Westdale and StreetLights Residential, is designed with the history of Deep Ellum's architecture in mind. The apartments homes will mirror the industrial feel of the area with 10-foot concrete ceilings, exposed brick walls and open metal shelving in the kitchens. Studio, one-, and two-bedroom options will be offered along with parking in a private, secure garage. Pre-leasing begins this summer and the project is planned to open this fall.

Margins Beyond | Self Taught 
Kirk Hopper Fine Art
3008 Commerce Street

Kirk Hopper Fine Art is pleased to collaborate with Intuitive Eye's Jay Wehnert and Chris Bryne to present Margins Beyond featuring the work of self-taught artists. Many of the artists included are inherently connected to his or her own spiritual realm, methodically conjuring alternative worlds. However, the value of the art is not always recognized, sometimes owing to certain psychiatric conditions, homelessness, and detachment from the art world at large. These circumstances are not necessarily impediments but, instead, attributes that uniquely shape the work created by these visionaries.
