Are these pedestrian cross-ways connecting to the rooftops of these skyscrapers or is this just ornamentation? If its for use by pedestrians I would think this would be an unusual design. Good imaginative design.

Ornamentation.

But that is actually a good idea.This may have another remodel after all....

Jeret, now that I think about it...what if the twin towers had had pedestrian crossways at rooftop level?

Jeriat I'm a bit confuse on the.. well is it call "Eastside Cross Tower" or something?

That bad boy could be one the signature buildings for Fort Worth. How about 50 floors instead? The higher the better, seriously.

I wanted to keep it small. Just because of its location.

"Eastside Cross" is supposed to be an area, not just the towers.

More imaginative work. Does the green-blue "curtain" mean no external windows? And the recessed top--is that glassed in for sky light?

No. It's supposed to be recladding with different, less reflective (if possible) windows. When the sun bounces off that angle during the late afternoon, light seems to blind you when you're in a certain part of the area.

As for the top, it's really a gate-like structure, to somewhat protect some of those cameras and antennas on top.

Hey Jeriat, you might want to run that "One City Place" tower design on over to the architect guys while they've started the work. If not all, hopefully they could at least add the top layer to the building(s).

Thanks

If I had to pick ONE, it would definately be the XTO since that was the one I started with. It's the building that was SUPPOSED to take the place of the former Landmark Tower. But they turned it into a parking lot. Every time I pass that block, I just imagine looking up at something instead of straight at nothing.

Not intending to be picky (good designs!), but I think your clock is a bit too small to see from ground level.

Interesting. Could go if I don't have to work that day.... thanks for the info.

And instead of going with the "City Hall" and hotel (holding both of those off for now), I'm gonna do a remake of the AT&T building. Something much different from what I originally had.

That, and a downtown arena.

Jeriat,

I like the design you have put forward on the forum for the ATT "tornado" -themed structure. I do have some questions and a suggestion.

Do the bands serve any set function, like sun-shade or something else? What would they be constructed of?

My suggestion would be to work them into part of a functional design element that might even add to the theme. I would suggest a series of balconies offset at regular intervals from one another at each floor, but rotated one "suite" to the counter-clockwise (usual spin direction for a tornado in the northern hemisphere) for every additional floor. The resulting pattern would appear as several ascending spirals running up the building. Vertical structural elements running between these balconies would help to reinforce the ring structures so that when the next real tornado comes along the rings would be less likely to be ripped loose and cause additional damage. I would suggest that if you decide to take this idea up that you experiment with the number of balcony/elements per floor to see what gets the best visual effect balanced against the considerable value these balconies would add to the suites opening onto one. This modified design would probably better suited for residential than for an office building.

Keep up the good work.

The bands metallic mesh and they are 1/2 shade, 1/2 art. Since this is an AT&T building, it'll have communications, that's why I made one side very solid with the other side having windows. I think it should have less windows than that, actually. It's a communications building, so I didn't want the main part of it to be too fancy, ya know?


Still, originally I was thinking of having each floor or every 2-3 floors offset from each other so that the building and I think that's what you're suggesting.

I'd love to see some sort of building in downtown that has a major art element to in instead of just being a building with "stuff" on it, so that's why I came up with the tornado concept. I may play around with it some more, later. And thanks for the suggestions/critiques.

I like that one a lot. Very realistic design, not to big, great location with access to the ITC and CC.
My critique to it would be, shrink the podium. At that height, it is just to intimidating, would create to much of a canyon of shadows on the street. Because the tower is set back from the podium, it'll look nicer, allow more light to the street, enhance views from inside and create the illusion that the building is taller than it is. Notice how the podiums of The Tower and The Omni are only 2-3 stories tall, built with street interaction, and the highrise's setback away from the street.

I like that one a lot. Very realistic design, not to big, great location with access to the ITC and CC.
My critique to it would be, shrink the podium. At that height, it is just to intimidating, would create to much of a canyon of shadows on the street. Because the tower is set back from the podium, it'll look nicer, allow more light to the street, enhance views from inside and create the illusion that the building is taller than it is. Notice how the podiums of The Tower and The Omni are only 2-3 stories tall, built with street interaction, and the highrise's setback away from the street.


... yeah, the first 10 floors do look pretty monolithic, don't they? I guess I could cut it at one or two corners after the 3rd floor. The idea was to have the hotel at the bottom with a large amount of rooms and the condos/apartments in the tower, like the Omni. But I see what you're saying.

Truth be told though, I wasn't gonna do this one because that site will have just a 4 story hotel instead of what I put up. It sucks knowing that instead of having another great Convention Center hotel, it'll just be another cookie cutter suburban-like building, like this one:

And that site is perfect for another mid-rise, at least. Instead, it'll be wasted.

But as always, thanks for the comments.

Back to your Hampton Suites rendering, I like how you placed the top structure “cater-corner” onto the street-level building.  Intriguing design.   As to height, I guess the relatively new marketing stratagem is the “condo/hotel” which is what Omni is and why Omni is 300-plus feet tall.  And, I guess Hampton Suites is strictly a hotel operation.

I've been fascinated by the construction of the Royal Hotel Clock Tower in Mecca.

Some people call the faux-historic design a 'kitschy Las Vegas-style knockoff of Big Ben'

But I have to admit that I admire the sheer audacity of the project.

It is amazing to me that they allowed it to be built THERE. That complex next to it is the Masjid al-Haram, or the Grand Mosque, the largest in the world. In the middle of the mosque the black-veiled cubic building is the Kaaba where all Muslims all over the world turn toward when they pray. I suppose the Royal Hotel is needed to help accommodate the more well-heeled of the 4 million pilgrims who show up all at once every year. The official strain of Islam in Saudi Arabia is very sensitive to the Prophet's commandment against idolatry, and have destroyed most of the historic buildings in Mecca that date back to the time of Muhammad, else they should become sites of pilgrimage themselves. Of course the Shiites in Iran have no problem with this, as every third city there is has a name that begins with "The Holy City of..." and has tourism from pilgrims as a major part of its economic development program. 

 

I suppose that was a bit off-topic, no?

I am loving the ATT Tornado, certainly iconic.  Is there a way to show what the skyline might look like if these concepts were constructed?
