I’ve been wondering what the hold up is. I believe it’s only getting the glass treatment on the sides facing Ross and Field.

Sure. I get more excited about the implementation of complete streets and projects that improve the overall walkability if the city.

I have to agree with you. I am very happy with this skyline changing building :D
I think once this building is complete, people will start to fall in love with the whole Fountain Place complex. Two towers dancing in the sky high, forever changing shape and form as you drive around the city. It will be Incredible.

I'll be happier about a building like this when it's on the other side of the CBD.

Exactly what Dallas is known for in the Architecture textbooks drive by architecture. Looks good from the highway passing by at 70 mph but up close it's largely unengaging, cold and lifeless.

I don't hate the tower mind you and I don't mind adding some much-needed residential in the CBD but let's not forget they modeled this project after the large trophy wife glass icon that sits across from it. Looks great from a freeway but when you start asking questions it falls apart substance wise. All flash and not much else.

^I like driving by significant architecture! Even if I'm not particularly fond of or neutral toward the building like Chase or BOA Towers, I really like looking at them while looping around the CBD (the ability to do this is one of my secret reasons to keep I-345).

There's no reason these monoliths should not be as enthralling in the pedestrian environment. I think the efforts to humanize the street level experience of some of the fortress towers has been encouraging. Commerica Tower being one of the first to make a better walking zone. Trammel Crow turning the Asian sculpture garden into a fantastic final phase of that orientation to the pedestrian environment is likely to cause a redefinition of Ross Avenue. ATT Corporate Plaza seems even better.

So, true. I’ve actually walked along the Griffin Street/Field Street merge, it wasn’t a pleasant experience. I wouldn’t do it again.

Up to 37, before too long we should start seeing the angled roof line start to show on the west side.

If I am counting correctly and I am assuming no 13th floor but they are on 38.

Great pics, have been watching the activity on top all week. They are spending a great deal of time working on the far west side. The floor pattern appears to changing and the first angled roofline should appear on that side now.

ImageAMLI Fountain Place, under construction, Downtown Dallas

Drive by photo of AMLI Fountain Place under construction taken while whizzing past it on Woodall Rodgers Freeway earlier this week.

AMLI's sharp angular top has yet to present itself ... once finished AMLI will look stunning standing tall next to its proud "rocket ship" neighbor! AMLI will look especially impressive from Woodall ...

Looking good!!!

This may seem crazy, but if there are only 8 floors left, are we still feeling good that the angled top is going to look as sharp as in the renderings? I think it looks awesome regardless, but just curious when that shape will start to appear.

I think there’s less than 8 floors left at this point.

^^^oh ok great. I believe the angled portion will be some sort of steel structure placed on top. It looks that way from the still photos from the construction animation. I don’t think it will be habitable, meaning it will not have residential units.

The top of the structure is just a design element.

Yeah. I was just thinking that maybe some thought it was apart of the floor count.

The renderings suggest that habitable portions of the building extend up into part of the angled portions (at least 4 floors worth).

They are on 41 and about to go to 42, clearly things are changing as each floor is taking on a slightly different configuration as they move up.

Checkout this screenshot from Dallas EarthCam, you will see the 3 red lines indicating:
1. current AMLI Fountain Place Height
2. Current crane Height
3. Museum Tower height

*This is just an observation not to scale of course.

There's definitely a bit ways to go considering that AMLI FP will be 2 feet taller than Museum tower and CityPlace Center in the background.

Two feet taller above ground level or sea level? Museum Tower's site is about 20 feet higher.

True, we are in Ross Tower and look right at it. We are on 30, think they were even with us when they crossed 36.

The angled roof line is definitely in play now, showing up on the west side they are about 3-4 floors into it at this point so you can see how it is starting to angle away from one corner of the building. Having said that I am still now sure how this building will look from various directions.

Looked like 43 and 44 when I saw it today but would have to count again to make sure.
