Re: Downtown Dallas Retail

Will the National be adding retail to the base of the tower? I haven’t read anything about any retail being signed to this project.

Re: KDC & Miyama Project - 30 ST

The more I see this design, I dislike the base of the tower more and more. For such a prominent spot, you’d think it would be more welcoming. It looks so crammed in this spot.

In order to get height for this tower, it has to be a multi use tower. They should add a hotel or apartment component to this.

Re: Dallas Smart District

Not a huge fan of this design. Dallas seems to only build boxy buildings with giant podiums. They should combine both office towers to one so we get something with more height. I understand we need parking but do we have to see it? I do know something is better than having empty lots. Just an opinion.
