The nearby Nasher Sculpture Center says the sun reflecting off the tower has damaged the Center’s garden, and beamed inside – a critical issue for the exhibition of art.
Dallas City Councilman Lee Kleinman, a Pension Board member, says trustees voted today (Thursday) to continue negotiations with the Nasher and residents of Museum Tower for another three months. The focus is a plan to wrap the luxury high rise in a newly-developed film that would reduce reflectivity by 50 percent.
Discussions began in May. At that time, the Nasher asked that other glare-reducing technologies also be tested.
Details of today’s Museum Tower discussion were in closed session and not released. Kleinman added that the extension of talks until the November Pension Board meeting is an optimistic move.
