The brand-new, just opened Hotel Palomar development (link) caught fire on the residential side of the project (map)... it looks contained.
I got the scoop via Adam at FrontBurner and Robert Wilonsky at Unfair Park. They were both notified by friends that work near Central Expressway...they have richer friends than I do lol.
This is a sad deal - I like the building and the concept. Hopefully they can get it fixed and ready to go, for their grand opening was just days ago.
