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
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."
