  1. When I lived in Houston, I ran over this bridge and I could see the tower being more dramatic from that spot than even comes across in photos.
  2. Two things: 1) its residential, that's good in itself. And 2), is that giant 1920s via 1960s tower haunting the corners of that model supposed to be a thing they're going to build? Also, no joke, I like the the little monopoly houses.
  3. Yeah I was thinking about the BRC--as Specwriter pointed out--because something like that is the obvious answer to the question. But if the question is will TMC as an entity displace Rice U--I mean, I don't think so, how would that work? They've got two downtowns of Denver in parking lots to the south.
  4. I'm not sure if I just like the black painted international style buildings (which I do) or because the first few renderings of the garage were so so ominous, but I'm okay with the building.
  5. Ojala que también construyen un edificio.
  6. I guess I'll just hope is while the city envelops the complex, the complex works toward the city from its center outward, slowly erasing the sea of parking.
  7. Looking at it from above it looks like an interesting piece of work, but from the street it's extremely forbidding. I had no idea you could get "into it." I thought you had to pay to go in.
  8. ah I've always said my '99 F-150 with a big dent in it from a too narrow ingress of a taqueria drive through really needs the protection of a big vault.
  9. I think this Structure/Gardens has some synergy (pardon the term) with the Houston Endowment's new building and refurbished Spotts Park.
  10. Folks are all excited and I think we should be. Right down the street there's two massive towers. This spot is destined for a big development.
  11. I remember when 10 was a skyscraper! 16 seems to necessitate solid construction.
  12. Wouldn't the SA river walk portion of Houston be our future island north of downtown?
  13. I'm laughing uncontrollably at this thread
  14. I think it's safe. Something is offputting. And yet, I must admit I like it. I'm a sucker for the international style. I like particularly black glass. Two Houston Center for me is still a relatively unsung building. Even with the construction. (I'll admit, I personally have my fingers crossed that this begin soon.) I'm actually interested in the trees? I've heard there are problems with trees on buildings beyond their unsubtle voguishness and ubiquity. Not only that they need so and so much steel and concrete to keep hoisted up there, but that they begin to die immediately. How true is this?
  15. Thank you @Tritonfor this. But...does anyone else find the perspective here extremely strange?
  16. I personally think it'll be nice when it's finally built out along 99 in Spring, Tx.
