HoustonBoy's Achievements




  1. Knowing how we drive here in Texas; this photo gives me anxiety.
  2. Are we all overlooking the massive tower in the first picture of the model? Is that not a new tower? It looks great. Almost Art Deco.
  3. The majority of American highways in urban settings are inherently racist. Not by their existence, but by their placement. This is highly documented and can be seen in most, if not all, major cities. Developers in the 40s, 50s, and 60s were openly racist and used highways to separate and financially ruin communities of color.
  4. The glass looks great and I'll take whatever the market gives, but I don't want downtown to look completely blue. In my ideal world we'll get a couple more 700 Louisiana-calibre towers.
  5. Oh man, how could I forget about the Mercer. I'm hoping downtown gets a lot less glass and a lot more brick/classic architecture.
  6. Will this be the thinnest building in Houston? Maybe even Texas? It looks like it'll give the Hyatt on Congress in Austin a run for its money.
  7. I really wasn't a fan of this extension, but now that I'm looking at it it doesn't look half bad. I wish they would paint the white structure a more grey color to match the facade. Or maybe a chrome.
  8. I like the juxtaposition between the community college and the university. HCC looks simple but effective. By the way, is it called the University of Houston Victoria Katy....
  9. Have they in recent years painted their trailers to advertise their company? If not, maybe they're "advertising" their company because of how grand the cultural center is going to be and they want their name associated to the institution. Glass half full
  10. 😍 Tell me these are current proposals
