Yeah, Hall held onto the underground garage for decades waiting to redevelop it into what we see now. He is going to wait on the large parking lot until there is actual demand for a tower of that size. He was stubborn about that garage and is focused on more Frisco development. Uber and AT&T moving to Downtownish aren't and wasn't enough to prove a point on Downtown being an attractive location for relocation. You need something like a Boeing or Amazon who wants a significant amount of space in a signature tower.

Looking forward to seeing what Hall has up his sleeve for the next phase.

^^ Those were earlier renderings of the buildings we actually received; not the proposed 50~ story office tower across Ross.

That would be lovely^ The surface lots around the Dallas World Aquarium and those directly south of the Hall Arts Hotel are worthy of world class high rises. Just visualize how dramatically different the skyline would look with an 800ft+ skyscraper in either of those 2 locations. I really hope Hall is waiting to build something significant here, it'd be a shame to watch the last open tracts of land downtown settle with uninspired mid rise buildings.

Hall has nothing up his sleeve. What a total disappointment this development is downtown. So he builds an 18-story tower that would look better out on the LBJ freeway. Wow 18 stories. Better stand back, that's approaching the 22-story new Dallas height limit. Too bad Dallas has been taken over by progressive socialist thinking. Used to be a city where men were men. Not anymore. So many posters here would say well at least he took up a surface parking lot. GTFO. Dallas needs real men and real risk takers not millennial men.

Am I missing something here? Pretty sure Hall himself is a Boomer?

Don't engage, some things are meant to just lay there in silent reflection and just pretend it never happened.

Yeah Hall is a boomer and maybe older than that. Nothing against Hall or his development per se but it just seems that the can-do attitude of the city has changed into something else.

And yep, I'm a boomer and damn proud of it. Tired of all the whiny gimme free sh*t crowd. You know who you are.

Hahahahaha

That's what you sounded like to your grandparents' generation when you were a smart 20-something!

Somethings never change, and this is one of them! Throughout the ages, it's repeated.

Most of these developments are speculative bubbles to begin with.

Millennial men. That's an oxymoron.

Sounds like all the whiny boomers I work with that are so full of themselves that they won't realize they are holding the company/city back :?

Um I will take this entire project at this height any day over the dead zone that existed in the heart of our Arts District for years and years. I am hopeful we can attain an urban demand for some supertalls in our future. We are fighting headwinds from companies that would rather be in campus formats in Las Colinas and Collin County.
