After I took this shot, a couple from Florida stopped to ask me what building that was and when it was built. I told them and they told me that this was their second trip to Fort Worth and they really liked the city.

You will need to update the banner soon. Frost will have a bit of time in the limelight before 900 Commerce starts to rise.
Whats the furthest back photo you have from that angle? It would be interesting to compare over the years.

Austin, I was going to wait until Frost appeared finished from a distance.
In digital form, my photographs from the Amon Carter Museum start in 2002. I'm sure I still have some old prints from earlier than that. I also went back and looked for some from other nearby points. I actually have a scanned photo that was taken from the UNTHSC in 2000.

Looking SW along 121? NW along 287? Looks like it's an angled highway judging by the street grid.
I think so. If it were not for DT looking west that hwy looks to me like Jacksboro. It looks like it was taken with a drone ?

Looking SW along 121?
It definitely is. The cross street about 1/3 of the way from the bottom is Hickory Dr. The yellow "Largest Inventory" billboard on the right side is visible in the Google Street View of the service road.

I was going to reply on the location yesterday afternoon, but I didn't get to it. JBB has nailed it.

That is a beautiful shot. That's a great quality pic to come from a camera on a drone.

I have already posted this photograph on Architecture in Fort Worth's Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages, but I thought I would post it here on the forum. I took this picture on Friday when the lighting conditions and the sky were just perfect. It is a shot of two buildings that have been maligned here on the forum. The subject matter is the Fort Worth City Hall (1971) by Edward Durell Stone and the AT&T Building (1926-1971) by Komatsu Associates.

That is a real Alien vs. Predator situation there - whoever wins, we lose.
Seriously though, I prefer City Hall over the AT&T building. City Hall at least feels like it's trying to make some kind of coherent statement, even if it's not a particularly good one.

Neither of these buildings is among my favorites, however you photo captured what qualities either has - linear perspectives. Paired with one another, the brilliant blue sky and the beautiful live oak provide a softening to the buildings so that the angular ATT and the low-to-ground/street make these buildings surprisingly tolerable.
I see and appreciate your ability to capture something that ordinarily is overlooked.
