epic deep ellum.
The project defines a scale transition between the low-rise historic fabric of Deep Ellum and the high-rises of Downtown. The office tower, composed of stacked, offset volumes, creates outdoor patios at multiple levels and provides self-shading of the full-height glazed exterior wall, both offering panoramic views. At street level, retail activates an internal lane that forms a new gateway to the historic neighborhood. An arrival plaza with outdoor dining areas links the project to the adjacent DART rail station and places new emphasis on the guitar-playing robot sculpture “Waiting on the Train.”
