A Hooter’s restaurant may be headed to downtown Fort Worth if the Downtown Design Review Board approves plans for an outdoor patio for the site at 150 Throckmorton St.
Spire Realty Group of Dallas owns the building, which was formerly part of the Tandy Center complex. At one time, a Chop House Burgers and a Wild Salsa bar were planned for that location.
The Downtown Design Review Board will hear the request for a “Request a Certificate of Appropriateness to construct an outdoor patio, an architectural entrance feature,” according to the board agenda. GHA Architecture of Dallas is listed as one of the applicants on the project.
