How would that ramp impact the proposed Hillwood tower? I am guessing here but besides the obvious DOT objections Hillwood may view that ramp as a necessary feeder to allow people to get to the tower from Woodall.

If we get another rain event like 1908 I'd hate to think of what else could happen. That would put everything that was under water then under water again which would likely stretch all the way to Fort Worth. Not to even mention issues like the Lake Lewisville dam.

So looking down at this just a few minutes ago it appears like they are finishing up the roof without going any higher. They capped the elevator shafts with concrete and to be honest it just looks like they are about done. So this multi acre garage is just that.
