  1. It's been approximately 10.5 months since the concrete pouring. Amazing progress.

    Skyline update

    This is one of the best videos on you tube showing downtown Houston. For those in a hurry check out 7:45 to 8:45. It's from Fritzphoto.
  3. This is not scientifically accurate, but from the content and size I would hypothesize an extremely large bovine. Or a local Texas size Bigfoot.
  4. Great photos, but where are the sky atria? The third photo's is especially good. Love the look of density.
  5. Houston does seem to have a New York fixation in the naming of areas.

    Skyline update

    Great Job. Starting to extend out like the skyline of Chicago.
  7. Could it be the Shamrock Hotel? It was quite tall and near the places they went to afterward.
  8. Houston is quite unconventional in that sense. In addition all the significant clusters of high rises , downtown, Med Center, Uptown, Greenway Upper Kirby, soon Allen Parkway and Montrose , creates a diffuse urban feeling.
  9. In that category we clean Paris's clock. I believe the Katy freeway is the widest highway in the world. But seriously the Champs Elysees "begins" at the Triumphal Arch in which the remains of a unknown French solider is interred and lit by an eternal flame. The avenue is used for bastille day celebrations. It has been the scene of many historic events: Charles deGaulle and the liberation of Paris, the US 28th infantry division marching through to go to battle. In addition the Tour de France ends there. The avenue ends at the Place de la Concorde, stunningly beautiful and with much historical significance, which leads to the Louvre, the world's largest Art Museum and former palaces of the Kings and Queens of France. I left out gardens and several other things. Duplicating the avenue in our great city is impossible. As switsig previously mentioned we can have a Park ave. or Rodeo dr. That in my opinion is very doable.
  10. Hate to sound like a curmudgeon ( though I am sometimes), but I don't see a "Champs Elysees" anywhere in Houston ever developing. South Post Oak can become like an Avenue Montaigne and Montrose Blvd. a Paseo del Prado in Madrid , but the Champs Elysees is a non duplicating avenue. Too much history and culture.
  11. Me thoughts this was in the grave yard of undone things.
  12. I think so. The "shortest" 50 story building in Houston is Three Allen Center at 685 feet. The restaurant on top is going to have some amazing views.
  13. With all the Gerald Hines buildings in Downtown Houston perhaps it should be named Hineston. Hineston in Houston.
  14. What is this area called? It definitely is coming into it's own as another major Houston Skyline after Downtown, Uptown, and TMC ( don't know if upper Kirby or Greenspoint can be called this yet). Many cities would give up an arm to claim one of these skylines.
  15. I know "sodo" stands for "south of downtown", but what is the difference between that and midtown which is also south of downtown? Is sodo a distinct area of midtown? Is there a wodo and nodo?
