I'm really hopeful it's going to be an older style brick building ala Nationwide or the American Airlines Center.
The whole glass and steel thing would be an awful fit for the area.
Well it could be a positive modern twist to the style of the city, no?
I have no idea about the area obviously.. but anything that stands out like a sore thumb for its 'beauty' would be great for the landscape and becomes an instant attraction.. instead of architecture that simply blends in..
But again.. i don't know the area.
