Wonder why this tower is STILL not included on SkyscraperPage.com. Even if there is no diagram drawn yet, there should still be an empty spot for it.

The 27 office floors will be "stacked" on top of the parking layer. So, this tower will be 36 stories tall.

Note the building in the lower left corner of the photo above. The 19-story Rio Grande National Life building only existed for 20 years before it was demolished to make way for the Renassance Tower. Shortest life span of any high-rise ever?

So, this is TWO 30-story towers. If this were all in one tower, it would be the 60-story goodness we all long for. But, that would probably never get approved. Because, Love Field.

If you were transported back to then, you would probably find a smelly, unsanitary, dilapidated mess. But, don't let that stand in the way of romanticism.
