"I was talking to Jason Roberts about his and Brent Brown's plans to remake City Hall Plaza in Whyte's image one week from today. Roberts said he was in a West Dallas warehouse, where Gary Buckner -- the man responsible for Bar Belmont's in-the-works makeover, among other notable projects -- was turning old pallets into chairs for next week's Living Plaza experiment. Roberts said to come on by. So I headed over to Toronto Street -- at the foot of the West Levee, in the shadow of the Calatrava -- where Roberts and Andrew Howard are, at this very moment, helping Buckner tear apart the wooden slats and nail them back together again. Very cool. And almost very comfortable."
