  1. As much as I love this tower and the view it's going to have from Minute Maid Park, I'm really gonna miss the view of 609 Main coming in from 45 North. Not a bad replacement, but still...
  2. It will be about as tall as the Hess Tower, and the view coming in from 45 North will be extended northward from the Hess Tower. It'll definitely fill a void from that angle.
  3. Maybe if we stare at the circles long enough, we'll "feel" connected to the area
  4. For reference, 23 miles of the widest freeway in the world (the Katy Freeway) was built in less time than that. I don't see how they get away with these kinds of time frames, tbh. This is one of the busiest intersections in North America. I mean...wtf?
  5. About eight or nine years ago, my mom came here from VA with her friend, who to my understanding had never left the Richmond, VA area his whole life (I think he's around 75 years old). My mom used to live here, so she knew about our multiple skylines, but I just remember that they stayed at the LaQuinta Inn on 610 near what is now the Amegy Bank building, and we were about to go to Ninfa's on Navigation. I remember her friend asking where it was, and when I told him it was near downtown, he looked around at all the buildings in the Galleria area and said "this isn't downtown??"
  6. Also noticed that with the Medistar Tower that's planned next to the new Intercontinental/Latitude development.
  7. Thanks for the update, Urbannizer...looks great. I wonder if there's anything substantive (yet) to that taller building in the background of the 3rd picture?
  8. Great shot, ekdrm2d1...thanks for all the great updates and Happy New Year!
  9. So maybe by 2050, we'll have this "rapid" transit you speak of?
