Re: Downtown Dallas: First Baptist Church

Looks like it would have made a nice residential conversion and of course there is an empty surface lot next door. And it's next to another parking garage.

I like this version better than the tripple A battery. Nonetheless, the design is nothing exciting. Generic at best. Glassy and blase at worst. But it's still much better than the Foster battery.
