If they decided to skip the glass wouldn’t they at least do some scrim?

I certainly hope that garage does something. It looks hideous right now!

Looks like they have a small part of the hardware in place to hang the glass on the garage. I'm sure they're just waiting to install it once the new tower starts going vertical. The area between the garage and Fountain Place looks like it'll be a great area once it's open

That's a relief! At ground level, up close, I think it looks pretty good. Just add the glass and that small office component on the end, and this isn't too bad.

The crane was going up today, they worked on it all day but don't know how far they got.

The crane was still going up late today, maybe they will be done tomorrow. Can't wait to see this start to go up.

AMLI started going vertical, first columns got formed today, looks like a ramp going up into the future garage.

The only thing I can think of is that they are going to wait until they start placing glass on the tower before they put glass on the garage too, I have noticed that they have equipment and construction offices right up to the edge of the garage.

But aren't they entirely separate projects by different owners?

Thanks for the pics! To me, this is one of the most exciting projects in years in Dallas. The height, the homage to Fountain Place, and its place in the skyline are significant. Can’t wait to see it rise, and hopefully the Hillwood Tower next door after that.

Me not so much... Field street is such a mess... I have a feeling this building will be another Dallas High Rise that is awkwardly oriented with the street.

Last plan I saw the city is playing the idea of simplifying Field street. I want to warn you though it's not going to change much because it's a major access road and TXDOT and the city accept that. They want to make changes to make it less of a safety hazard and permit better pedestrian crossing but it will remain a very active access point. Honestly, I agree with their plans. A road diet isn't exactly the phrase I would use either. More of a nip and tuck.

Dallas AMLI Fountain Place will be 2 feet taller than Museum Tower (:
2 feet taller than CityPlace Tower as well.

The Downtown Dallas 360 plan shows the intent of removing the off ramps off woodall. That alone will make a huge difference

So if that happens, will the only eastbound access be the Pearl (/Olive) exit?

The 360 update proposes to explore options to reconfigure the ramp, not remove it completely.

I suppose. But nothing is set in stone.

Yeah, the 360 plan is an agreed upon guide but rarely seems no more than a pretty picture in most cases. The city staff is supposed to use it as a guide for development and guide future priority projects but someone like a council member has to push such projects forward. I doubt private development would be for removing the ramps they would simply support efforts of beautification of the existing design or modifications but not removal.

Good to see some glass on that garage... even if it's just four panes, so far.

^Its the sample that's been up for a while now. I assume the glass for the residential and the garage will go up at the same time at this point.

Is this true? Taller than Museum tower?

Chicago-based developer AMLI Residential is building a 45-story apartment on Field Street that will be downtown's tallest high-rise in almost 30 years.

If the 562 feet in the thread title is correct fo this building, and if Emporis is correct for Museum Tower, AMLI Fountain Place will be 2 feet taller than Museum Tower.

This tower will have 46 floors and a large design element on top. How is it only 2 feet taller than Museum tower?

Several things come to mind:

1) According to some sources, including the architects, it may actually be 45 stories, not 46
2) Museum Tower has a pretty large design element on top too.
3) AMLI Fountain Place probably has shorter average floor heights. Being a rental vs high-end condos, chances are decent that the units will have somewhat shorter ceilings. Even if the apartments have the same ceiling heights, the average is probably lower because the first 9 floors are parking, which are typically significantly shorter than residential floors. Museum Tower doesn't have a parking base. (In fact, according to the FAA filling, the 9 level parking base is only 97 feet tall.)
