After facing the threat of demolition and an uncertain future, Dallas’ historic Statler Hilton Hotel, will be entering a new chapter in October 2016 as a mixed-use hotel, residential, and retail center. Designed by New York architect William Tabler, the Statler was lauded in 1956 at its opening as “the first and finest hotel of the modern era.” The current owners, Centurion American Development, secured 46.5 million dollars from the city of Dallas and announced in April it would be partnering with Hilton's Curio Collection.
