  1. I think it’s the last full floor. Only the crown left.
  2. Sort of. . . The “10 story building” in back is a parking garage with a ballroom on the top floor.
  3. $33 million on a project for which construction hasn’t started and with a completion date five months away. That’s a tight timeline!
  4. North side of The Travis at night. Better than the daytime view. It’s oddly fitting, though, that there are a couple of lights that are out-of-sync with the rest. Maddening — just like the unpainted parking garage. LOL!
  5. We’ve seen the accent lighting on the south face, but the north face of The Travis now has its own lighting scheme. Looks like it’s got some missing elements and needs a little work.
  6. I understand that this is a Holl building and that glowing boxes are sort of his thing. It’s a fine building, and I’m sure the interior will be nice and functional. Safe with a little twist, in my opinion. I’m just waiting for Houston to commission a “take your breath away” piece of architecture that makes people worldwide go, “Whoa!” I think we missed an opportunity to really advertise Houston’s impressive cultural establishment to the world. I’d submit places like Bilbao, Denver, Mexico City, Antwerp, Valencia, Hanoi, Paris, Alberta, Minneapolis have seized their opportunity more effec

  8. The model/rendering looks cool. I’m still bummed that the most interesting aspect of the exterior design (imho) — the roof — will go largely unseen. Although, it should translate to a spectacular ceiling on the inside.
  9. I think they are the same design, but the perspectives are different and one is a daytime render while the other is night.
