Dallas Architecture News

We’ve been busy this week getting ready to install our newElsewhere, TX exhibition (more on that soon), but wanted to take a break toupdate you on some of the local architecture stories we’ve run across recently.

Hot on the heels of the groundbreaking for Museum Tower,the Arts District got more good news.  SpireRealty Group has plans to develop the 12 acres they own just south of Ross Avenue.  Here’sthe scoop. 

And up the street, ReesArchitecture is working on a plan to “recycle” Elm Place.  When built as the First National Bank tower,it was the tallest building west of the Mississippi,but now sits empty. Rees says their plans include wind generators and solarpanels on the roof to generate energy.

Another icon of downtown Dallas—the Art Deco Lone Star Gas Companybuilding—is also looking at redevelopment. Hamilton Properties has plans to turn the complex into housing,including affordable housing units.  Unfair Parkrecently posted somephotos of the inside of the building taken by Harwood Avenue District championNoah Jeppson.  They are a realtreat.  (I’ll take the corner office,thanks.)
