D Magazine World Headquarters Make Cameo in Dallas, Ctd.

D Skyline 2

You might know Daniel Vaughn as the BBQ Snob. He’s also an architect, and he worked on the building in which Dallas shot that scene. It’s Gables Park Seventeen. Daniel sends along this photograph, taken from approximately the same spot. Mea culpa. It appears they didn’t tinker with the buildings after all.

    I feel stupid.

  • @towski: Don’t be too hard on yourself. Your stupidity was fed by mine.

    Although, in the image from the show, the Hunt building looks a hell of a lot closer.

    the shot in the show was taken with a longer lens.

    In the episode, John Ross was taking about how they were in the space of the original Ewing Oil, which in the original series was in Renaissance Tower. I was thinking during the scene that there was no way the shot was taken from that building. I guess I was right, but it was nice for story continuity to show them at the end of the episode from the top floors of Renaissance Tower.

    What BrandonS said – they faked me out at the end when they were shown in Renaissance Tower.

    A.K.A. “The Dos Equis Tower” …J.R. later moved into Fountain Place. Ol’ Cliff Barnes officed at Campbell Center (still shown in the opening) which was the first building to direct glare to a Nasher property.

    They are getting some great shots of Dallas skyline on the show. That nighttime shot of the two of them standing in Renaissance Tower, taken from the outside, was beautiful.
