I was just wondering how sales were going, damn.... Dallaz seemed like the official Museum Tower spokesperson for C-D. I guess I'll check DFWU for my answer.

Thanks.

^^^Yeah, it's really good to see construction getting started on that Woodall Rogers Deck Park. I agree, that urban park is going to be awesome!

Portyhead was right, my response was testy.

Scarface, I've read many of your posts and I know you're fairly resourceful at finding information. It's hard to believe you could not find Museum Tower sales activity yourself if you wanted. And, I'm pretty sure you knew Dallaz wasn't an official MT spokesperson.

This is very cool. One question though. I went into the park's website and they show tons of trees that will be built on this park. My question is how can they put trees when there is concrete a foot or two below the soil? Or do they plan to have really thick soil there? Also, how will they drain that basin, they cannot expect the concrete deck to be waterproof, can they? I know they can put parks over freeways, but the logistics is what I'm asking about.

I agree that this should be a true game changer for Dallas. This is visionary thinking.

This is from the website

The Park will create a bridge over the freeway, consisting of concrete pre-stressed box beams set on columns constructed outside the current walls of the Freeway and supported by a new center wall. The concrete beams will be arranged in groups with spacing in between the groups. Concrete slabs will span the spaces connecting to the bottoms of the beams and forming trenches. The trees will be located in trenches designed to provide room for their roots. The trenches will act like planter boxes, allowing the tree to grow to the desired size then constraining the roots so no further growth will occur. There will be an irrigation system installed in the park to water the grass, trees and other plantings. Between the deck structure and the soil there is a drainage mat which is designed to collect excess moisture and wick it to the plants. Excess water will be collected and drained into the storm sewer system. The majority of the park will have a 12-inch layer of topsoil with the trenches providing the depth of soil needed for trees.
