Looks like 13 or is it really 14 since nobody likes 13 even tho 14 is still the 13th floor. Crazy

Is the parking garage included in the number of floors? Or does level one start at the first residential level (the 10th floor)?

I would say yes but I don't recall seeing the schematic anywhere so I can't say for sure. However if the garage were not included that make it a 56 story tower and since it only eclipses Museum tower by a few feet I am led to believe the garage is included in the overall height.

So exciting to watch this one go up along with Atelier and Hall.

Looks like the brackets for the glass are being placed on the garage. Looks like the plan all along was to set the glass on the garage when the tower went up.

What's the lifespan of those brackets? Seems like they would need to be replaced every two decades.

This will be a fairly thin tower, I wonder how it will look from various angles being that it is not an exact duplicate. Time will tell, promises to be a looker.

From that view it almost looks like a triangular tower but it clearly isn't.

It does. I think we can confirm that this will be a tower that chances depending on the angle...just like Fountian Place. This will be the most architecturally significant building built in decades. Hopefully, other developers will take note.

Wow, I didn't realize there were going to be garden terraces on both sides of the tower. Looking forward to see this one start rising!

Thanks for posting that link. I wanted to point something out from their brochure. Here is the amenities list for the building.

If anyone is curious as to why some office workers never need to leave these 80's office towers till they jump in their cars and drive home to Frisco...
Gym, Dy Cleaners, Convenience Store, Deli, Starbucks is available through a tunnel to next door Fairmount which I didn't realize there was a tunnel between the two. These are pretty standard fare for these buildings as well.

Fountain Place is the terminus of the Dallas Pedestrian Network. It pops out in the plaza along Ross.

Panorama of the Dallas Skyline. You can see the Amli slowly starting to make its presence known.

Hell yeah! Uptown and Downtown is basically one continuous skyline. Someone from Houston thought, Uptown was Downtown. They honestly couldn’t tell the difference between the two. That just shows how much growth has occurred in the last 5 to 10 years.

They really have blended together in a big way, KWP has certainly helped fuel that change.

You are absolutely right....KWP has played a huge role in making all that has happen in that area over the last 10 years come to pass. At the early presentation stage it was roundly critiqued as a boondoggle and a waste of time and effort...where are those folks now, oh I know, enjoying the park for a nice lunch break from the office.

It takes strong leaders like Jody Grant (KWP), Erik Jonnson (DFW), Elon Musk (SpaceX and Tesla), Steve Jobs (Apple twice), etc that have such confidence in their vision that all the nay sayers in the world will not stop them from inserting their imprint on the world. It takes a special set of tools in the kit to be able to achieve that level of success. So, thanks Jody and Erik for adding your vision to our great area of the country.

klyde warren park is the best thing downtown/uptown and dallas proper has done in the last 20 years.. complete game changer, hopefully they will make it a little bigger and bridge the gap to the perot museum.

I personally think there is little value added by expanding Klyde Warren. Much more value in decking i-30 or i-35 near Oak Cliff.

Yeah and in about a year and some change we will have about 4 more high rises in this general vicinity. Amli, atelier, hall arts, and i guess 2000 ross will be visible from the park if the hotel gets built.
