This just looks taller in person to me than I imagined from the renderings. I felt like the renderings made the office building look more short and fat.

Depends on the side you are looking at. Plus I guarantee the renderings focused on making sure the tower didn't appear to be too tall for the neighborhood. It's an art preparing renderings that sell a project to politicians, tenants, and the neighborhood who might stop it from happening if they get a whiff of whats really being built.

I expected it to be about that big. Its the only part of the complex that is guaranteed to be built. Hopefully they fill it all in - I expect that the parts that include/connect-to the KoP will be the Last built. (most expensive with the least return) The apartment/mixed-use/hotel are a bit iffy with all the new hotel and apartment spaces being brought into the area already.

My understanding was they were building office space and not apartments first -- but that was from some of the early renderings. I still stand by my position that KoP will be the LAST part they do.

The renderings don't look much like what they built, no cantilevering. So I can see where I got confused. Just walked past last night and I watched it going up from my building.

There's a site plan on page 9 of https://kdc.com/wp-content/uploads/2017 ... al-A22.pdf

the office tower is topped out. The residential tower along Elm is around the second or third floor now. About two weeks ago they got the city to chip in historic preservation funds to subsidize building the new hotel tower next to the existing building. https://www.dallasnews.com/opinion/comm ... ay-new-one

Is the segment marked "Hotel Addition" also planned or are they staging construction?

Also have any tenants been announced for the central plaza square area?

Yeah, the residential tower is definitely under construction as well as the hotel. The Hotel addition is the smallest construction but the hotel project is definitely moving along. This project is moving full steam ahead.

That's the building they just got the city to give them big bucks for. It's not under construction yet.
