Shannon Wynne to open Bird Café in Sundance Square’s new plaza
Posted Jan. 31, 2013
Longtime Sundance Square restaurateur Shannon Wynne will open Bird Café in Sundance Square this October with more than 6,400 square feet of indoor space and 2,300 square feet of patio space in the new plaza.
“Bird Café will be incorporated into the existing Land Title Building, built in 1888, as well as the new Commerce Building currently under construction,” said Johnny Campbell, president and CEO of Sundance Square.
A patio will extend from the Commerce Building to the Land Title Building, creating a sizeable outdoor dining area. The patio will be split between two levels.
“We are keeping the decor under wraps until we are ready to open, but we are incorporating the historical significance of the Land Title Building into the design while creating an interior that has a current sensibility,” Wynne said.
The centerpiece of downtown Fort Worth, the plaza is set for completion in October and will be flanked by two new buildings currently under construction, The Westbrook on the west and The Commerce on the east. The north side of the plaza along Third Street will be framed by the historic Jett Building and a new multipurpose pavilion. On the south side of the plaza, a double allée of trees will define the nearly one-acre site.
