The KPF-designed tower at 98 Red River is among multiple projects over 300 meters planned for construction in North America.
The article, “Six supertall skyscrapers planned for North American cities,” highlights the increasing trend of supertall towers, buildings over 300 meters tall, in cities throughout the US and Canada.
