Hello AJ readers!

This week, we served a sweet story on a family’s upcoming business, which will include gelato. D’lish hopes to open in December, but allowed us a look behind the scenes of how the shop began, and what they will sell.

“I’m just excited to see it all come together,” said Amy Hayes, owner. “I want everyone to try this out.”

We also got an in-depth look at what is going on in Metro Tower and the history behind the tallest building in Lubbock. It has had two other names and a long history of predating the devastating 1970 tornado. Here’s an excerpt:

“In 2019, WestMark Commercial announced that Metro Tower would be redeveloped by MRE Capital and partner Structure Development of Austin. During a 2019 interview, Alison Blalock of WestMark Commercial recalled thinking of the tower as ‘her mom’s building,’ and how her own children call it her building.”
