Griffin Square (never built, thankfully)

Griffin Square (never built, thankfully)

Griffin Square, announced in 1969, was the brainchild of C. Wesley Goyer Jr. The project site was 32 acres on the southwest side of downtown, which consisted of railroad yards and ephemera that Goyer bought up. The centerpiece of the project was the 913-foot tall ""Dallas Tower"" - set to be the world's tallest concrete building when finished in 1972. The Dallas Tower would have offices and 28 floors of hotel space.

Over 16 acres were cleared for the project, which was to open in May of 1972. The hotel and apartments would cater to downtown workers and convention visitors at the nearby convention center. Also in the plan were apartments and shopping, to compliment the nearby Main Place development. The first building, 555 Griffin Square, was eventually constructed and opened in 1973.

The tower project was doomed in 1970 when Harvey Hotels pulled out of the project, citing the fact that it had expanded too rapidly and needed ""a breather"". Arlen Realty took over the planned development and it was scaled down to just a few small buildings. Only 555 Griffin Square was ever finished. The cleared land eventually became (mostly) many acres of parking lots.

This scan comes from an advertisement for the development published in Life Magazine.

Dallas City Hall 1914-1978

Dallas City Hall 1914-1978

In May 1910 Dallas officials determined that the City Hall, then situated on the northwest corner of Commerce and Akard Streets, had become too small to serve adequately the city's population of over 90,000. They sold the property to Adolphus Busch, who built the Adolphus Hotel at that site. A number of locations were considered for the new municipal facility before C. C. Slaughter sested this site, which the city purchased in the fall of 1911. Voters approved a bond issue in an April 1912 election, and construction began in May 1913. The completed building opened on Oct. 17, 1914, to coincide with the start of the State Fair.
C. D. Hill and Co. of Dallas designed the five-story Beaux-arts City Hall, constructed of Texas gray granite. Ornate Corinthian columns line the Classical facade. The interior of the structure, originally finished with marble floors and mahogany woodwork, has been remodeled periodically to provide additional office space. In 1956 the adjacent municipal building was erected to serve the growing city. In the basement of this structure on Nov. 24, 1963, Jack Ruby fatally shot Lee Harvey Oswald, alleged assassin of President John F. Kennedy.
