New Geo-Deck at Reunion Tower opens to the public on Saturday

See also

One of the most iconic symbols of Dallas is Reunion Tower and it will have its observation deck reopen to the public on Saturday morning after undergoing its first major renovation since its debut in the late 1970's. The tower will also open a new dining venue, Cloud Nine, on Saturday as well; tickets are available online to the public on a first come, first served basis at www.ReunionTower.com.

The new GeO-Deck is named for legendary architect Buckminster Fuller's renowned geodesic sphere and provides visitors with breathtaking views of Dallas through high definition zoom cameras and an interactive digital touch screen display named 'Halo', which will allow visitors to see and engage in Dallas in unique new ways.

Above the GeO-Deck is Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck which has remained open through the renovations on the level beneath it. Five Sixty is noted for its 360 degree views for diners as the floor makes a full rotation about once every hour.

Cloud Nine will provide a casual lunch experience and is also managed by Wolfgang Puck; during the evening it will become a private event venue and guests will be able to enjoy seasonal dishes beneath the digital canopy that displays a stylized Texas sky.

Doors will open to the public at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5 and Sunday, Oct. 7. Future hours and parking information will be available at www.ReunionTower.com.

***********************************************

Downtown residents are encouraged to get involved on Saturday as part of the city-wide day of park clean-up. Volunteers will be replacing the sod at Ferris Plaza (across from Union Station) and all tools and supplies, as well as bottled water, will be provided. Volunteers are asked to bring your own work gloves.

Everyone that shows up to help will receive a free drink at City Tavern after the work is completed.
