That's cool, it's been a long time since a new tower has been built. Hopefully they come up with something nice and go through with it

Thanks for posting this Brian :thumbsup: I'll keep an eye out for this. Wonder if it will be 17-stories like the other tower?? Now you can post this on the high-rise thread started by imaterry.

I don't know how tall it will be, if it comes to fruition, but I do know it's supposed to be built on the property where Eldorado currently has its valet parking, between the Texas Street Bridge and Barnwell Center. That will mean that the casino will have 1 hotel tower just north of the bridge and one just south.

Pretty cool, I hope it happens. With this and the new city parking garage that's being constructed right across the street from this site, it will drastically add to the riverfront area's density. The only real open spaces down there now will be the large Sci-Port parking lot (also under consideration for parking garage construction) and Riverview Park.

Let's hope that happens, Brian. The El Dorado company seems very savvy in the casino industry and like visionaries for their property. I imagine this could well happen, or they wouldn't have made a public statement about a new tower. A new tower could also rekindle interest in the local gaming market. I hope Harrah's read that article and thought about their Horseshoe property.

No doubt! Horseshoe has long had plans for a second 26-floor tower on their property. How awesome would it be to see both of those casinos build a second tower on their properties?!

well theres not much space at all there.. soooo maybe it will have to go up :) I wish! would be cool if it could be half as wide and twice as tall as the current hotel.. I think the same thing every morning going to work about the Hilton at the convention center.. it looks like two towers merged together...

Ok guys, you can brag that SBC does have one hell of skyline for a city it size even though a major skyscraper has not been built over 20 story in 30 plys years. I was talking about highrise in the suburbs.
