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

I agree about building the original twins; would look stunning, especially if Fountain Place 2 is rotated 90 degrees from the original. Fun to dream.

Re: North Dallas: Midtown

This is nothing more than a self-promotion puff piece by a north Dallas city councilman's over-adulating about his daughter's project work. Nepotism? ...whatever; besides it is completely an unrealistic architectural render of some blah blah avant-garde Dallas Midtown "signature tower" at ...

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

I'm more concerned about Fountain Place, an architectural gem, getting blocked, which is why a true twin would've mitigated such possibilities.

Re: Fort Worth: Dickies Arena

Why does everything built in Fort Worth look like that? My understanding is the design is to compliment the original Will Rogers coliseum area including the Pioneer tower, which has an Art Deco flair. Personally, while some may think it kitsch, I'd like to see Fort Worth's next tallest building pla...

Re: Victory Park: The Victor (~453FT / 39ST)

I'm happy something is being built here, however I really do hate the building. I don't like the design, and I think the name is just comical. Seriously? The Victor at Victory Park? That's gotta be the lamest thing I've heard in weeks. All being said, it will be nice to haver more density and more ...

Re: Old Cityplace Twin Tower site

I agree with the comments posted about either build the twin as originally conceived (my preference) or incorporate the Brazilian granite (or marble) that's in a field in southeast Dallas to compliment the existing tower; similar to AMLI and Fountain Place. However, it would be neat to see a skinnie...

Re: Victory Park 3.0

Anyone have any new information with Houston based Hines development company about their alleged planned office or mixed use high-rise adjacent to the W (on or near the former site of the Mandarin mixed use ~650 tower proposal)?

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

Amen to the respectful rebuttal over the Evangelical comment. Honestly, I'm sick of corporate political identity. This great nation was and is built on the backs of small businesses; Dallas included. Frankly, its Dallas' history of innovation that have geographers collective heads scratching given w...

Yes, I, too, would like to see pictures on how that area is progressing as I'm not able to go there often.

Your analogy of a AAA battery wrapped in chicken wire is spot on and hilarious.

Re: Northpark Center

I'm not sure about the FAA restrictions and even less certain about the current economic viability, but I think a Williams/Transco tower kind of development next to Northpark would "define" that retail/office/urban living cluster in such a way as Transco/Williams did for Houston's Galleria...

Re: Arts District: 1900 Pearl (362 FT | 25 ST)

When I look at this building I think to myself this is nothing more than your neighborhood fixer-upper equivalent meant for nothing else than revolving rent...parking garage included. I'm disappointed that a striking tower doesn't occupy this highly visible space as pointed out prior. I'm sure I'm i...

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

Only a twin could compliment the first born. I would've preferred another "80s post-modernist original" next to it in order to accentuate the beauty of Fountain Place...but's that's just me.
