^The British are coming! Haha. I'd actually love to see an HSBC or Barclays tower in Dallas.

It looks like Uptown Houston with smaller buildings.  Is there a height limit there due to Love Field?  

I believe in many spots yes but the tallest u/c or just topped out are:

34stories

32

31

30

And the tallest existing is of course the 42 story city place. So any height limit seems wishy washy. What is irritating is that it seems that even now they are still proposing more towers in the 20-23 range. Instead of making a hundred of these squatters they could have made half the amount at twice the height or at least in the 30s range. It's okay though. Its all coming together nicely and if you've seen it lately the density is looking impressive. Like a little San Diego.

Silicon Valley has half the skyline of Fort Worth, too, and by your "more is better" logic, what sense could that make?

-- but most tech firms need to communicate more than hierarchical organizations.  Being twenty-five floors apart doesn't lead to collaboration.

Amli's Taylor Bowen said construction on the high-rise will start this summer. The Field Street tower would be the tallest downtown building started since construction began in 2010 on the 42-story Museum Tower condominium building in the Arts District.

Crow Holdings wants to add a final office building at the far north end of the project.

 

The 96,000-square-foot office development will be between Maple Avenue and Dallas North Tollway, just south of Knight Street, according to plans filed with the city. The project will include six floors on top of a parking garage.

 

"We are planning to begin excavation next month and we should be ready for the first tenants in the first quarter of 2019," said Crow Holdings' Cathy Golden. "We are 100 percent occupied — a good place to be when you are starting a new building."

And now some more info on the other "40 story" tower. The Flora Street Lofts. This new literature is now stating the tower could be 41 stories.

DallasFlora-north_ground_perspective-220

 

According to the article it should begin this fall. Awaiting Tax credit approval this summer. Yes this will have Section 8 housing for starving artists. One wonders how you prove youre an "artist" to receive this tax credit. Haha. Whatever. She's gonna look good.

Today, City Council will move the project up to the goal line when it approves resolutions in favor of tax-exempt bond financing of $15 million and a state 4 percent tax credit of about $7.58 million. The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs must approve the tax credit, which will likely occur this summer.

The idea of bringing truly affordable housing to the tony Dallas Arts District was always going to be challenging. It may never have happened had it not been for a commercial developer’s willingness to literally dovetail one tower into another.

In the fall of 2015, the Urban Design Peer Review Panel revisited a project it had first seen March 26, 2013: “The project scope has been revised to include a residential tower component.”
