What is the future or status of the old ATC tower?

What is the status of the present Hyatt hotel at DFW? Will it be torn down once the new one is completed at Terminal D?

In Houston at IAH,is their old ATC tower still in use or vacant?

Original ATC tower at DFW is still in use, primarily for ground control if I'm not mistaken.


With a choice between changing one's mind & proving there's no need to do so, most everyone gets busy on the proof.

When the two new control towers were opened in 1993-1995, the old tower was relegated to a ground control center during the day. At night, the old tower was used as the sole functioning control tower. I'm not sure if they still use this setup today.

The new Hyatt at Terminal D will be a Grand Hyatt - decidedly more upmarket than the present hotel. To the best of my knowledge, the existing Hyatt at Terminal C will remain in operation.

The existing ramp control towers at each of the terminal are being replaced (the SkyLink people mover tracks have obsucred their views) by new towers attached to the SkyLink stations. The new people mover has really changed the way DFW looks - it's astounding.

I disagree- DFW is not a dump, except in the A terminal. It sucks. BUT- the B terminal is nice, and C is, too. Delta's terminal... I have never liked much. Except now, Continental has moved over there and remodeled a bit, and it looks way classy.
