Silver: One Uptown
This 20-story mixed-use Dallas development features 198 energy-efficient apartments; 18,500 square feet dedicated to retail and two restaurants; and a 475-space underground parking garage. Judges thought the inclusion of two restaurants was impressive and also noted the building’s eye-catching sinuous forms. One Uptown faced the challenge of an oddly shaped footprint, but Humphreys & Partners Architects offset the hard angles of the tract by designing a curvilinear exterior. Glass, concrete and metal were used throughout the entire project, giving it a sense of motion.
