Museum Tower is rising fast in the Dallas Arts District.

The luxury residential skyscraper is nearing its full height.

"We're going up a floor a week, and we'll top out with the 42nd floor sometime in November or early December," said John Sughrue, one of the project's developers.

The building is designed to become Dallas' newest architectural icon.

"It's sculptural in that it moves out 4 inches a floor and tapers out for 18 floors and then tapers back in," Sughrue said.

The views from the tower include the Calatrava bridge, Reunion Tower and the Woodall Rodgers deck park.

Museum Tower will have 112 luxury condominiums. The most affordable homes start at more than $1 million. Despite the weak national economy, Sughrue said they are selling.

"We've signed contracts with buyers, and we have contracts in the works, and there's very good momentum," he said.

Museum Tower is scheduled to open at the end of 2012.
