Chicago-based developer Amli Residential is building the tallest tower in Dallas in three decades.
The 45-story apartment high-rise will go up on Field Street on downtown's north side.
Quote:
"It was of the utmost importance we do something unique and different being next to I.M. Pei's Fountain Place," said Amli executive vice president Taylor Bowen. "We want to have one of the premier timeless buildings downtown."
That's a tall order in Dallas, where the skyline has its share of standout
buildings.

Amli hired Austin-based architect Page Southerland Page Inc. to design its $150 million residential high-rise. It will be the tallest new downtown building since the 55-story Chase Tower opened in 1987.

The building will sit on a site that was originally earmarked for a second-phase tower at Fountain Place. The matching skyscrapers were to have been joined by the ground-level water gardens.

"This was master-planned a long time ago to have two towers on either side of the garden," said Page senior principal Lawrence Speck. "We couldn't do a twin — it's a residential tower instead of an office tower. We wanted the buildings to seem like siblings, not twins."

Holy sibling towers, Batman! The existing tower is old enough to be the father.
