I’ve been wondering what the hold up is. I believe it’s only getting the glass treatment on the sides facing Ross and Field.

Sorry, I don't find this tower appealing.

Do you actually have anything positive to say about any development in this city?

Sure. I get more excited about the implementation of complete streets and projects that improve the overall walkability if the city.

I have to agree with you. I am very happy with this skyline changing building :D
I think once this building is complete, people will start to fall in love with the whole Fountain Place complex. Two towers dancing in the sky high, forever changing shape and form as you drive around the city. It will be Incredible.

I'll be happier about a building like this when it's on the other side of the CBD.

Exactly what Dallas is known for in the Architecture textbooks drive by architecture. Looks good from the highway passing by at 70 mph but up close it's largely unengaging, cold and lifeless.

I don't hate the tower mind you and I don't mind adding some much-needed residential in the CBD but let's not forget they modeled this project after the large trophy wife glass icon that sits across from it. Looks great from a freeway but when you start asking questions it falls apart substance wise. All flash and not much else.

^I like driving by significant architecture! Even if I'm not particularly fond of or neutral toward the building like Chase or BOA Towers, I really like looking at them while looping around the CBD (the ability to do this is one of my secret reasons to keep I-345).

There's no reason these monoliths should not be as enthralling in the pedestrian environment. I think the efforts to humanize the street level experience of some of the fortress towers has been encouraging. Commerica Tower being one of the first to make a better walking zone. Trammel Crow turning the Asian sculpture garden into a fantastic final phase of that orientation to the pedestrian environment is likely to cause a redefinition of Ross Avenue. ATT Corporate Plaza seems even better.

So, true. I’ve actually walked along the Griffin Street/Field Street merge, it wasn’t a pleasant experience. I wouldn’t do it again.

Great photo Troy! I'm going to be sad to see this one top out. I want it to keep going ever skyward!

Up to 37, before too long we should start seeing the angled roof line start to show on the west side.
