City Celebrates �Topping Out� of Omni Dallas Convention Center Hotel

Mayor Tom Leppert and others gathered late Thursday afternoon for the �topping out� of the city-owned Omni Dallas Hotel, meaning all of the concrete has been poured and the 23-story, 1,001-room building has reached its maximum height. A steel beam with a Norwegian pine tree attached to it symbolizing �growth and good luck,� according to Omni general manager Ed Netzhammer, was hoisted to the top of the hotel to mark the occasion, which also featured a reception and tour of the facility scheduled open in early 2012.
