Big Bob has been all over this at Unfair Park, but in case you missed it, Mark and Patricia Lovvorn have applied for a demolition permit with the Texas Historic Commission, declaring their intent to tear down 10 Nonesuch Road, better known as the home of Stanley Marcus for about 60 years, and host to everyone from Eleanor Roosevelt to Lady Bird Johnson to Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin (to name just a few). The Lovvorns’ reason for wanting to raze the site and rebuilding? “Energy inefficiency.” The weird thing in all of this: the Lovvorns were apparently the ones to initiate historic designation proceedings back in 1999.
UPDATE: Guess who else is all over this? And guess where I should have looked before posting this? That’s right, Candy over at DallasDirt.
