I really like it. It looks tall and fits the area. High 5.

I can finally clearly make out the Museum tower from my house, it definitely adds a great fill into the CBD.

The tower is coming along nicely, going to look very good with the glass in place. Glad to see some new pics on the thread. Been taking a few here and there but never seem to get time to post them.

I read in D magazine about how the Museum Tower was affecting the Arts District and especially the Nasher Sculpture Center because of its extremely bright and reflective glass. It said that light was leaking in, and plants were being cooked because temperatures were rising to 115 degrees plus. The Arts District was now being hit with the equivalent of two and a half times the power of the sun. The Museum tower is now supposed to be reskinned, which will cost 20 million dollars. Hilarious, right?

This is more common than many people think. The Frank Gehry Disney Hall in Los Angeles suffered the same issue as neighbors complained about reflected light. That skin required a costly new coating to reduce glare which angered some purists...

So, in that picture, that's the final height... Looks a little shorter than I thought it would. Still a pretty tower and another wonderful addition for Dallas.

We need a couple skyline shots now.
