Re: Arts District: Flora & Olive Tower (~441 FT / ~39 ST)

I wonder if this crisis will leave us with half-completed towers like the last one did. Anyone remember the Stoneleigh condos? There were several in Austin after the dot-com bust. It wouldn't surprise me, but if the money has already been committed, they'll probably finish them. I doubt if they fil...

Hillwood's plan included hotel, office, & residential components. Most new supertall's have multiple aspects now. The new buildings in Downtown Los Angeles are made up of multiple kinds of tenants. I don't know if Dallas can support this kind of development.

Well after many months, the construction on the AMLI Tower has finally been completed & the work on its crown is finished. I'd expect the openings on the upper floors will be closed and the crane will be dismantled fairly quickly. It's been quite a show to watch.
