The steel framed brick building with cast stone trim was designed by Dallas architect Verne E. Shanklin and developed by Humphrey and Churchill also from Dallas. Construction of the building began in 1927 but the stock market crash of 1929 caused this rare example of a 1920’s high rise apartment building to be a late bloomer when she finally opened in 1930.[wow_spacing size=”10px”]At 12 stories, the Forest Park Tower has a commanding presence over Forest Park and the south side of the city. A one, two and three bedroom apartment built on each floor now accommodates 36 high rise condominium homes with original wood flooring and original tile in the bathrooms.[wow_spacing size=”10px”]Thanks to the “T” shaped structure, each home has a view in three directions. The upper floors’ views of Forest Park, the Trinity River, the south side of the city and downtown surely influenced former residents Ben Hogan and General John Hulen to call Forest Park Tower home.[/col][col size=”6″][wow_spacing size=”20px”]
