Arrow DALLAS | Block XII | ~31 FLOORS

Harwood's Block XII has long had a sign on block XII proposing the new development.

With things heating up in neighboring Victory Park, I wouldn't be surprised if something happened in a year or two.

Original design:





New design:

Looks like a Chinese style development in a U.S. City. Would be cool if it happens.

For those unfamiliar with Dallas, nearly every piece of land/parking lot in that 2nd picture is either U/C or has a project in the works. The developer is playing his cards right and taking advantage of the limited land in this highly dynamic area so there is no reason to doubt that this developments could happen. I bring it up because from those pics it looks like they are building high towers in the middle of lots of land. Here is a recent picture of the projects in that area (from a different angle).

One thing that would stand in the way for this type of height is the FAA height restrictions but I don't think the developer would just throw away money on designs for pleasure. Maybe he knows something we don't. It does seem that the restrictions have been loosening for some reason as seen on other recent proposals.

And just like that, the firm page those came from has removed the page.

I'm betting someone stumbled onto something Harwood didn't want out yet, because conceptual renderings almost never get taken down.
