I feel like The Lexi is vaporware at this point. Same with One Harwood…

Ummmm it looks like I found One Harwood possibly…? Not really sure. I Wasn’t trying to. I just happened to find nighttime renderings of Harwood No. 14. It looks nice as hell…if that’s the actual lighting scheme. Makes me like it a lot better lol. (Not sure if they’ve been posted before)

Cool, thanks for your post. Haven’t seen this before and don’t personally like its tollway glass box design or find its minor angles worthwhile, but I count 20 floors of office over about a 6 floor podium — 7 if the lobby loggia is double height.

So it's going to look cool at night, but look like crap all day?

I don't think that's the same tower, but could be wrong. They've specifically formatted all FAA OEAAA filings for all previous Harwood boxes as "Harwood No. X." The one I'm referring to, One Harwood, seems to be a crown piece for them. If Harwood No. 1 (in the image you posted) is their pinnacle of the district and is One Harwood... Big yikes. Plus, they were pushing for like 500-ish, maybe 550 feet on the FAA submission. That thing doesn't look like it's 500+ feet. Looks really chunky, and very ugly.

That image is of whatever office building is planned at Wolf and Harry Hines in front of Bleu Ciel.

Harwood really loves these little "fins" or whatever you wanna call them as of late. Swexan-y.

Based on a rough/guestimate count (since not every floorplate is exposed and so much of the facade/construction material obscures views in the above photos), I'd say 18 or 19? About 6-8 more to go.

Maybe they will look better when complete but those things somehow look like a cheap add-on to me.

Oh, you should see the Swexan Hotel its as bad now that some fins have been added there too. I am curious about the wind dynamics of the fins, though, if they add a lot of drag to these buildings or help in some way. The architecture firm, I do not doubt, did some wind studies but I am curious what the results are. Yes, we are not talking super tall high rises, but I am just curious at this level what the impact is.

Oh I have seen it! And I also can't help but wonder how high winds may impact these fins, or wind and hail. Maybe the are much stronger than they appear.

Also, do they improve direct sun at all by being vertical? Or have no real positive effect except visual interest.

The fins are seemingly just decorative from what I can tell, and, probably provides more visual interest to the building from the long view (further away). Not really a substantial and consistent vertical louver system for providing good shade benefits, etc.
