Signage for the garage is up has been place directly on the concrete surface, looks like they are done. At least the crane is going up, should see it start moving up soon, that will at least hide a large part of the garage.

I have considered the HSR project a huge plus for the Amazon HQ2 project. It certainly places Dallas in a unique league for any company considering the city for a project of this size. It certainly can't hurt anything.
