Funny how the office tower resembles 1900 Pearl because I also think the residential tower resembles 1900 McKinney... pure coincidence, I know. Not that it bothers me because where The Union really does its thing is at the ground level.

It appears that over the weekend they increased the height of one of the tower cranes. I’ve never seen this before so it sort of feels like my eyes are just playing tricks on me. Can anyone else confirm?
Also: The top of The Residences at Park District Dallas makes an appearance. Note the slight height difference between M&O Tower and it, even though M&O Tower is on higher ground and even given the vantage point.
^Agreed. Meso Mayo is in a City of Dallas Landmark building, but the El Fenix building is not landmarked. It should be, and it should stay. Parking lots there could be redeveloped (to include parking for El Fenix, of course).
It would be sad to lose the El Fenix building - I know it's not groundbreaking architecture, but it's iconic.
A tower could easily wrap around the back end of the El Fenix building with a center drive that leads to a parking garage. Its a matter of the restaurant group and the developer agreeing that they are a positive impact on each others business. I do imagine though we are more likely to end up with a Cafe Express situation here where they will simply get a modern space in a new building on the site with Meso Maya building preserved next door.
