Back in late '08, developer Bryan Foster went to Dallas City Hall to see about getting $475,000 in City Center Tax Increment Financing District reimbursements, which he said were needed to give 1400 Main Street, then a 1954 building in sorry shape, an $4-plus-million extreme makeover. The end result: Plush, which bills itself as "The Premier Dallas Nightclub."

But a Friend of Unfair Park directs our attention to the LoopNet listing placed last week: 1400 Main's on the market now, the asking price a cool $4.5 million. But Realtor Ken Nwokedi tells Unfair Park this morning "just the building is for sale. The club will remain." (DCAD has the property valued at $2.3 million.)

He says Foster will lease the property from whoever buys the building -- if somebody buys the building -- and that Plush will, in fact, stay open as part of the deal. Bryan McCann is no doubt relieved.

But that's not all: I see Nwokedi is also repping the Palestine, Texas-based owner of 1217 Main Street -- otherwise known as Skye Bar -- who's asking $4.7 million for a property on the tax rolls for $2 million.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
