Since When Is 7 Stories a High Rise?


The headline to the Dallas Morning News story on Highland Park’s attempt to obtain an injunction to stop construction of The Saltillo, a planned seven-story apartment complex along the Katy Trail that was approved by the Dallas City Council last August, calls it a high rise. That’s not correct. It’s a mid-rise. I’m sure that was a headline writer’s work, but given the fact that Highland Park and neighbors have their panties in a wad over the height of the building, I found it kind of ironic.
