  2. Do they occupy the middle floors that noticeably have not switched over to LED bulbs? I have always wondered this, lol.
  3. Well Fargo sign is now up on the bottom floor of the tower and if I noticed correctly has also been removed from the one story building across the street.
  4. Looks like this building is getting new life. Formerly Mr Peeples. https://houston.eater.com/2020/12/3/22150259/james-harden-houston-rockets-thirteen-restaurant-opening-midtown-bagby-street
  5. Interesting, based on the latest pics this will be built like 111 W 57th in NYC where the two smaller sides are basically solid allowing for the skinny/thinner construction. As for the lot it is my understanding that the architect for Hess tower convinced Hess to build the garage on a portion of the block and save the rest for future development.

  12. I am glad you mentioned both systems are good and bad. However, age is important for one reason, technology. More specifically vehicles. By the time personal cars came around NY had been established for 200 years. The decreased demand for train travel even led to destruction of one of NY's greatest public spaces, Penn Station. As for Houston's parks? I agree with you. They are getting better every day and we are getting even more. In fact I live in front of Midtown park and I can say it meticulously maintained and used by many that live around it! Unfortunately there is also a h
  13. I was not aware of this tradition for the tallest building in Houston? Is there something you can reference? It is not just the ESB, it is the WTC, Rockefeller, Hudson Yards, Sears/Williams, Hancock and other international towers I have visited. They all have dedicated elevators and spaces. I will agree there are many other parks but not hundreds. At the same time they were not all built at once. NY has 200+ years on Houston. I am guessing that as time progresses we will also have more green spaces. You call it "bluing" of the city, I would just call it a city changi
