The Vote Is To Keep Trying For A Solution For The Glaring Museum Tower-Nasher Dispute 17

museum tower2The Dallas Police and Fire Pension System hopes to have a solution soon to the three-year-old problem of ‘glare’ from the 42-story tower it owns in the Dallas Arts District.

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.
