Throw one back: Vintage Dr Pepper ad planned for side of landmark Dallas building

Developers who are restoring a more than century-old downtown Dallas building want to give the project a historic super graphic.

Owners of the Purse Building at 601 Elm St. want to cover part of the brick wall on the east side of the 6-story building with a reproduction historic advertisement.

Developer Tanya Ragan is seeking city approval for installation of the colorful Dr Pepper soft drink mural.
Ragan said the installation has been in the works for more than six months.

“Last we year did an art project on that side of the building,” she said. “We put the art up there and people started taking pictures and were calling us to say it looked great.
The Purse Building will be converted into a mixed-use development.

“Our plans are to do office and first-floor retail and to start by the end of this year,” she said.

The Purse Building owners plan to develop a one-story restaurant and parking lot on the vacant half-block on the building’s east side.
