Yes we have all seen the one rendering they have, I am more curious about seeing the proposed tower from a different angle or was it even the final design. Seems like a lot was missing.

Yeah, I thought so too, to the point that I wasn't sure if that was the final rendering.

And we still don't have any other rendering? I want to see this thing at street level.

^Nice find! Thanks for posting. Maybe somebody will be able to grab those pics and post them. Definitely will be the tallest tower in that trio. Heard the story mention that they intend to hire locally for what they need here in Dallas.

Yeah, it's nice seeing how the height will compare to its neighboring buildings.

Uber announced results yesterday, and it looks like they burned another 1.2b with about 12b left in reserves. Expense growth outpaced revenue growth this past quarter. I am still deeply confused as to why the developer here is so enthusiastic about this, and why they're likely doing a build to suit (a heliport on the roof deck - really?) when there is a good chance that this company might not exist by the time this building is ready.

Development is an inherently optimistic industry ;)

Also, it's hard to turn down a household name. Uber may still be in flux when it comes to the business-minded folk but to politicians and the average citizen, the name is so well known its hard for them to picture the company not figuring it out eventually. I am not saying they wouldn't become an MCI Worldcom or Enron etc and be wiped out with the right mistake but deals like this are about publicity for politicians as much as they are about Uber trying to cut costs. Same for the developer by that measure.

Meh. Not in love with the new tower. I find that top part awkward and inelegant.

Lol. Sadly probably prophetic. Enormous cash burn rate.

I think it will turn out better than the renderings

I wonder if this Uber thing is a slow walk out of San Fran area and relocate everything here save cost and blame it all on the flame out.

I hope you're right and if so, I hope it goes much better than when Blockbuster did that.

Blockbuster should have become a streaming service ahead of the game. At least Uber is talking and testing flying cars.

Speaking of Uber, someone on reddit has already spotted a self-driving car downtown:

Yeah, the local news station already showed video of the self-driving cars in Downtown the other day.
