I can think of better ways to spend a million+ dollars than on an antiseptic cell surrounded by 6 lane highways and parking lots. Where would I go for a walk if I got bored? Also what is this tower contributing to the city? A private art gallery for residents only? is that it?? This building is so anti-urban

I'd rather see them build this than 1m+ suburban style subdivisions which is what usually goes on in this part of the world. At least this provides highrise living.

This and OKC's Devon tower has got to be my favorite construction sites going on in the south.

Seems that you are behind on what is going on here, think before you quote. When Museum Tower is complete mid to late next year, this will also be completed about that time, right out the front doors of Museum Tower.

The one good thing about the smaller footprint of this tower is that it's rising at a very nice pace.

Thanks for the update.

In the last twenty-five years, the city of Dallas builds its first skyscraper of over forty stories, and just barely at that, and the world takes offense.

That freeway is being covered and turned into a park. It's already under construction.
