While I do not think that this has anything to do with AA;  it is interesting that as of February 207, Irving's most recent effort to obtain a developer for this site ended unsuccessfully.

Sorry, I meant a tower crane is up at the American Airlines site.

Sneak peak at some of the details of the new AA headquarters. There's a rendering of the full site at about 1 minute into the accompanying video:

A title change for this thread might be in order if we want to continue discussing the new headquarters here.

I did not see an accompanying video in the link. The design and plan sound great though.

The video is above the story. First thing I see when it opens.

thanks JBB. I saw it now.... the play icon never appeared the first time I opened the link so I thought it was just a photo.

The ceiling of the main building looks like a turbine blade.

This particular topic is obsolete as this subject is no longer relevant.  It was a rumor that actually had a miniscule chance of ever becoming true.

 

  Better that future comments about American Airlines be posted in a different more generalized thread about all things American Airlines.

The thread title was changed. The headquarters is relocating. Why switch to a new topic if this one is running right along?

They are relocating from their old HQ on Amon Carter to their new HQ on the west side of 360.

John - can we get the thread title changed again to something like "New HQ construction for American Airlines"?

I suppose your and my understandings of the DMN article, post #1 are at odds.

I was making a joke. Guess I should have used the font.

A large tower crane is up at the site.

 

There are 5 massive tower cranes up on the site now.  I didn't notice them heading east on 183 to 360 south, but they are very visible heading north on 360.

I don't care where you place this discussion.   I'm just happy that Fort Worth is home to this fabulous modern corporate campus when completed in 2019!  And, rest of America, AA is in Fort Worth, not Dallas!

These buildings are bigger and taller than I realized they would be.

 

They look impressive from the TRE, and I assume they're highly visible heading northbound on 360 as well.

They are also very visible to incoming air traffic when the winds are out of the north (ie when planes are landing from the south).  I saw them out the plane window a couple of weeks back and they look great.

They are indeed highly visible heading north on 360. They seem massive. My girlfriend asked why they needed so many cranes, I figured it was so they dont take forever.
