^Thanks. What about extending the trail along Harwood Street, to Klyde Warren Park?

That is being looked at quite extensively. There are a number of opportunities with that link, and several obstacles that will have to be addressed. Its doable, but ultimately it will come down to funding to make it happen.

On that note, NCTCOG selected a project for funding that would effectively create a dedicated bike/ped connection from the Houston Street bike lanes, through the lower McKinney Ave. area and connect to KWP along Harwood and other streets. Funding is still contingent on Regional Transportation Council approval, and that is expected in the coming month or so.

This does not create a connection to the Katy Trail along the northern end of Harwood, but perhaps this project can be considered 'Phase I'.

Looks like those glass bottom/sided cantilevered pools for the penthouses actually happened. I know they were floated on the original design but I'm pretty sure they said they might not happen if the penthouse buyers didn't want to pay the significant costs to make them a reality.

I wish they had done more with the rear of this building. The front is great but the rear was a complete afterthought.

The glass on the top is not my favorite and it's boring.

It's a good bookend for this side of town.

At that height with that much open terrace I'm pretty sure that is more a design necessity so you don't have to bolt down every piece of furniture so it doesn't blow onto 35 and kill people in a bad thunderstorm but I could be wrong.

I just think the glass fins on top could have been more dramatic.
