Tenth and Adams - 1890

RISK - Neglect and aggressive zoning.

In the 1960's, the City of Dallas decided that they would deal with the decay of the late 1800 and early 1900 homes in the area by allowing doctor's offices on Tenth St.  Later, apartments were added to increase density for shopping on Jefferson.  Today, the single family residents of Dallas Land and Loan deal with those decisions daily.

811 N. Bishop 1908


811 N. Bishop today

RISK - Aggressive zoning.

Stretching from the Bishop Arts District to Methodist Hospital, Bishop Ave. has been in a state of renewal for a few years now.  Looking better than it has looked in years, the area is on the precipice of capitalizing on the successes of the nearby Bishop Arts District.  Most of the structures on Bishop Ave. date back to the early 1900's.   Surprisingly, only three structures on the entire street are protected; the apartment buildings on Bishop and Canty.
 
In Conclusion

It is important to mention that OOCCL's efforts are altruistic.  The public asked us what we could do in the future to be pro-active with regards to demolitions and this is an attempt to do that.  OOCCL cannot make anyone not tear down a building.
