20 JUNE 2019: Dallas Business JOURNAL New law limits DFW building control. Now what?
“Governor Greg Abbott signed a controversial bill Friday that sent a wave of concern rippling through cities in North Texas…
…Barry Maners, president of architecture firm Entos Design, said he has a split view of the bill… "It’s a big issue because from a city standpoint, the city is wanting developers to come in and they’re wanting to control the types of materials used on the exterior of homes for initial look but also for how it’s going to look in 20 years”, he said.
If a city doesn’t have a say in how the exteriors of properties are kept up, there can be negative impacts on property values, he said, and that’s something he’s seen happen… eliminating local building regulations also prevents cities from preserving a design aesthetic specific to their area… [however] it would give designers the freedom to choose new materials that are just as durable and safe, but more cost effective for clients, and that has great appeal.
“I just kind of wonder if the state senators really fully understood what they were doing when they did this,” he said. “It sounds like a good thing that everybody should be able to do what they want, but maybe not when you look at what cities are trying to accomplish for the long term value and maintainability for structures.”

DALLAS' 1970S FAD OF GRAND ATRIUMS ARE GIVING TODAY'S DESIGNERS A CHALLENGE
Back in the 1970s and 1980s, real estate developers' favorite trick was pulling an atrium out of the inside of buildings. Now, architects and designers who've been charged with renovating these old buildings are trying to figure out what to do with all that wasted space. "There are so many of them, and it's a big challenge," said Barry Maners with Dallas-based design firm Entos. "Back in the '70s and '80s, every building had to have that big volume of space."
