Re: Dallas Smart District

The likely aspect of the podiums for the office towers is to bring in retail and people together.

Re: Downtown Dallas: AMLI Fountain Place (562 FT / 46 ST)

The top crown section has been slow to complete but I noticed yesterday that the east top slanted section is now getting the glass installed. Looking good.

Re: Oak Lawn

I think the big hole with the crane bounded by Welborn, Congress, Brown and Hood streets just south of Oaklawn Ave is the contruction site for a 22-story apartment or condo tower. If I’m not mistaken there isn’t any renderings out yet,

Re: North Dallas: Midtown

Don’t know if this has been posted but I assume it’s just another mock up of the tallest tower in the Midtown Development.

Re: Harwood Int'l District: Harwood No. 11 (The Forum)

I’m thinking this tower will be built on top of a parking garage and may not reach max height 620 ft. I’m also surprised that the FAA ruling on this, since there is no flight path through that area.

Re: Victory Park 3.0

The Hines 23-story Victory Park Center office tower has not started construction. It has been a proposal for several years. So, why is Hines proposing to build a second office tower in the same vicinity of the Victory Park area?

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

One last note; DFW metro area is number one in the nation for office leasing as of the latest figures, yet we can’t erect an office skyscraper downtown like Houston can.
Do we still have to much empty space downtown?

Re: Harwood Int'l District: No.12 Harwood Hotel (20 ST)

Eye popping addition, it may be from street level next to it but it won’t be from a distance, it seems that good design buildings in Dallas are getting lost between to many other mid high-rises. For example the new Rolex and the McKinney & Olive buildings great designs but needed to be taller to...

Re: Dallas Smart District

Yeah, I was thinking the same when I drove down Canton St. last week. Still no sign of activity, in fact it looked like the parking lots are still operating. I don’t think they have even drilled for soil samples. The first phase is supposed to start this fall. Just doesn’t look like it. We just have...

I too pass by it everyday, glad to see this tower rise faster now, I predict it will be topped out before the end of next Spring.

Re: Downtown Dallas: AMLI Fountain Place (562 FT / 46 ST)

I think eventually it will get covered, they just want to finish the tower and maybe because they don’t want the glass to be damaged during the worst part of the construction is my guess.

Re: Downtown Dallas: AMLI Fountain Place (562 FT / 46 ST)

I noticed that construction has stalled for about the last three weeks at the top. Does this mean that the tower is about to get started from the top of the base and just takes more time? Sorry if I missed it, but I hope no miscalculation has occurred.

Re: Cityplace East: ACS/Xerox redevelopment

I know the structure height of 895 may not be allowed by the FAA. I’m thinking they are testing the FAA to determine how high is allowed for this location. Remember what Harwood International did with those tall towers Uptown.
