Let's just say I have friends in high places.

When might we see the design?

Have you heard about the design’s details?

They are misleading you.  Unless you think of sometime in April as "not much longer".

a possible design was leaked to me out here in Houston.  It is only slightly bigger 64 floors 901 feet tall carbon copy notice I said carbon of Williams Tower in Galleria area.  Waterwall optional but a good addition since Duke was founded on hydroelectricity.   (this is written in blue for anyone color blind)  part of the KJ listening tour.

Looks like Duke did a press event today at their new space in Optimist Hall as it’s now operational. They mentioned 400 as the number of employees working in that new space. I had no idea it was to be that large. For some reason I thought was way lower than that. Anyone know where these workers came from? Moved out of Uptown?

They moved from uptown mostly according to Duke person I know who is working out there.

I hope they moved from that building next to the convention center so Duke can sell it to the city who can then build a big tall hotel.

Thats essentially a data center. They will move out of that location, but the limitation isn't employee headcount or lease, its actually purchasing new servers and physically moving them to a new location.

bit more info from another piece on the opening of the Optimist Hall space....The new tower is to hold around 3,600 employees  and of the 400 at Optimist Hall, 300 are permanent and 100 will rotate in and out as needed

Do you know what the current Duke uptown headcount is?

Nice.   Pelli does great work.

I love San Antonio.  It’s a small historic gem like Charleston, Savannah, or Newport.  I prefer it to the much bigger Big D.

Seems shorter than I was hoping, but I absolutely love the design.  I love it so much I wish it were taller/more prominent.  That is approximately 1000X more appealing than BOAT.
