Dallas Convention Center Hotel Proposal
 
I am personally unhappy with the idea of a knock off of Chicago's Lake Point Tower in a 12 story version for the Dallas Convention Center. The city council has recently proposed the hotel should be "iconic." So I hopped on SketchUp and took the proposal and did added my own "signature" to it. The building may not be perfect or exactly to scale (should be about 4:5 the size shown) but at least you get the idea. This is my version of an iconic tower:

I'm normally not a fan of twisty funky towers, but this is actually really cool. Seriously, if that were proposed I'd totally dig it. Well done!!

actually, that looks exactly like the south galleria or whatever proposal, shape wise. Yea, they( the desighners) coulda done better.

Side not, is that my belo tower?! How'd it get primary?? Hahaha.

Thanks. I'm more of a contemporary architecture person myself but this thing was screaming for a "look at me" design.

Your thinking of ICON Partner's "Icon Midtown" across from Galleria Dallas. That was my original inspiration fused with Lake Point Tower. All of the buildings except for the J.P. Morgan Chase Tower were already loaded. Congrats on the Belo Building being included.
