  1. "IN GIRUM IMUS NOCTE ET CONSUMIMUR IGNI" -> "We enter the circle after dark and are consumed by fire" Kind of creepy
  2. I've always thought this. The city's entire skyline, including all of its districts, is one of the most impressive skylines in the hemisphere and would serve as a great backdrop to pretty much any rooftop bar/restaurant/entertainment. Houston could be "Rooftop City" or something
  3. Wow I'm a huge fan of the design! Its simple and minimalistic, but unlike the regular airport architecture found in the US. It's not flashy and grand, but its still a big win for Houston and all of it's international visitors.
  4. This is exciting, I want to see that park completely surrounded by mid/high-rises. Concrete canyons and locations that are 360 surrounded by buildings always give developed cities such an urban feel. That's why I love driving down Fannin in the med district
  5. If you got rid of those power lines this angle would make the street look pretty romantic
  6. Is the tall one in the rendering being built right now? I'm confused as to which building is which and what's under construction.
  7. My dream for this building has always been to strip it to its concrete, knock out some walls, add creative stairs and ramps throughout, beef up the elevators and/or put glass elevators on the sides, and turn it into a gallery/exhibit/event space/vertical graffiti park. Restyle the garage and add ground floor amenities and you could have a hot spot that generates some revenue at least
  8. I love it. These buildings, if ever built, could easily be some of the most recognizable towers in Texas. I'm really digging the helipad
  9. I actually really dig those townhomes, it'd be great if Giorgetti offered to power wash them. One can dream I guess
  10. That looks great. I hope we can get some vertical greenery! Something like Bosco Verticale being the ultimate goal.
  11. Im confused. Is this site going to be home to the tower rendered in the previous page, another tower, or something else?
  12. I think the main tourist area of the Riverwalk downtown is outdated as well, but there is a synergy that extends outside of the immediate downtown core that I personally find very attractive. What, if any, city would you like Htown to move towards or take inspiration from?
  13. Agh it hurts to look at that rendering. It's so nice. I think had it been built it would've been the hottest place to be in Houston. It reminds me of the Pearl Brewery in San Antonio. I know Houston is forging its own identity, but I wish we had a more downtown SA feel. SA has such a natural and interesting downtown/central area
  14. Exactly! It really does help connect people to their city.
