A 600 foot Schwarz tower would certainly be something.

 

David Schwarz's website does list a master plan for downtown and shows potential massings for buildings at these locations

That seems like a really small lot for something like that -  somewhere around 100'x100', right?  Take that with a grain of salt since I'm not architect, engineer, or urban planner and I don't even try to play one on the internet.

The project that is referenced will go on the entire city block bounded by 4th, Houston, 5th, and Throckmorton Streets.  It's the old Monnig's Department Store site that has been a parking lot since 1991.  The piece of property that you think is too small, is actually that, because you can't make a parking garage fit or work on a 100' x 100' site.

I'm an idiot. I thought we were talking about the northwest corner of the Petroleum Building lot.

Love the idea of a new tallest skyscraper, but that particular block is an unfortunate location.

 

From the east, the new tower will block the condo tower. From the west, the new tower will be blocked by the condo tower.

 

Didn't Sundance Square recently say something about not wanting a high rise near the plaza? Or was that speculation on our part?

Second location, right?  I'm interested in seeing what kind of hours they run.  There's a specialty doughnut shop in Southlake that has longer hours and they do pretty good after school business.

The upper couple of floor on the East side of BOA Tower appear to have new, brighter lights. Hopefully the towers will be brighter and better match 777 and Burnett.

Any update on the rumors about building the tallest skyscraper?
