Thanksgiving Tower redo brings new downtown restaurant
Steve Brown, Dallas News
Downtown Dallas’ Thanksgiving Tower is getting a new restaurant as part of a $37 million makeover.
Gather Kitchen — a fast casual restaurant — will open a 2,400-square-foot ground-floor restaurant in the Elm Street skyscraper early next year.
The new concept restaurant is being developed by restaurateurs Nicki Hamilton and Soraya Spencer.
The planned restaurant will include a bakery and outdoor seating and will serve recipes with seasonal produce from local farmers.
“Downtown Dallas is booming, growing and evolving, and we believe our concept fits a need for professionals in downtown who want a quick, casual, healthy and limitless menu,” Spencer said in a statement.
The eatery will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The almost 1.5 million-square-foot Thanksgiving Tower is currently getting its first major renovation since the building was constructed in the 1980s. Upgrades include new retail and outdoor dining areas.
“As part of our renovation of this iconic building, we want to provide distinctive, high-quality restaurant options,” Billy Prewitt, executive vice president with building owner Woods Capital Management, said in a statement.
CBRE’s Greg Pierce, Ryan May, Jack Gosnell and Amy MacLaren negotiated the Gather Kitchen lease.
Woods Capital owns Thanksgiving Tower in partnership with New York-based Third Point Opportunities Master Fund.
