Yeah, I didn't actually look up Iowa State's library, it was just sort of an "insert any podunk school." Tall libraries can be found at lots of schools, off the top of my head Notre Dame, Lamar University in Beaumont, and an older one at UT. Please don't tell me that these don't meet the defined threshold of skyscraper, the whole post was exaggeration.

 

The National Library of France in Paris certainly falls into skyscraper library category. Quite beautiful also.

The Dallas Galleria/Midtown vision has seemed dead but it looks like there might be some progress in demo-ing VV mall and start building?

Your MSA is number 1 in population growth in the U.S.  from 2017 to 2108,  according to the Census Bureau, over 130,000 people! Congratulations. 

 

Not sure if that's a blessing or curse but thanks anyways🤗

You might be referring to The Epic. It has that jenga style..like a mini version of the independent in Austin. I believe it's 15 stories but looks larger.

https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1860531

It has an accompanying tower next to it called The Hamilton. It's 28 stories (not 26 like the thread says)

Apologies if those links don't work as I'm working off my phone. You can Google Skyscrapercity Dallas and you'll get the full list of many projects with photos.

I think The Epic office building is 14 stories.

StreetLights (the company building The Hamilton apartment building) says it is 26 stories.   http://www.streetlightsres.com/development/the-epic/

You're right about The Hamilton. Thought it was 28. Can't seem to find verification on The Epic though. One site says 10 and another 18!

LOL

 

I just found, on the development's website, that the office building is 16 stories.  Looks like 10 floors office space on top of 6 floors of parking (plus perhaps another floor of parking below grade).

I've heard that everyone in that apartment complex has had to move out and the entire complex will be demolished. Not sure if true; I can't believe none of that complex is salvageable. Doesn't say much about our wooden stick construction on these midrises.

Apparently, residents have not even been allowed back in to get their stuff... even the apartments that were not directly impacted.
