Downtown Dallas is Smoking Hot with Museum Tower Groundbreaking

Some 200 people braved the hot summer heat to witness the groundbreaking of the Museum Tower.

“To say the least, this is a momentous occasion for us after 12 years of work,” Museum Tower partner John Sughrue told the crowd. “People are asking us ‘Why start now?’ “The answer is easy – look around you.”

The Museum Tower will be located in the heart of the Dallas Arts District between the Nasher Sculpture Center, a few blocks from the AT&T Performance Art Center and The Park. The 42-story tower will offer 122 luxury condominiums, starting around $1 million dollars. It’s also one of the few skyscrapers going up in the country because of the recession.

“The Dallas and Texas economies are leading the national economic recovery; $1.5 billion of cultural infrastructure is either complete or under construction in our immediate neighborhood, transforming the neighborhood into a world class urban district,” says Sughrue. “The greater the number of residential offerings in downtown Dallas the more vibrant the city will become.”

The building is set to be completed in 2013.
