From the City Council Meeting

Quote:
This project [...] is its chance for Dallas to announce its presence as an international city on the world stage, with a truly mixed-use building.

A building that will have five floors of the foundation of the cultural teaching spaces and galleries.

Above which are ten floors of office building in which an incubator by a tech company may start up.

And above that, 24 floors of residential.

We think these mixed-use vibrant buildings can be transformative in this city.

It gives the city a work, live, play environment all in a single structure.
Quote:
We feel that the building can be iconic, that it should be in fact a gateway announcing arrival into Dallas on Woodall Rogers.

We feel that the tower should take a form and shape that makes it a symbol of the vision and goals of this city as well as its aspirations.
Quote:
It creates a sustainable structure. One in which the economics of the housing and office will endow the museum so that it can always be open for eternity.
- William (Bill) Butler
Principal, Pelli Clarke Pelli

This project should be moved to Highrise and Supertall Proposals. Considering the architect it should be a nice building.
