  1. It's a little hard to make out on Flickr, but you can see the same "drilling" going on up top as what's being done on the bottom.
  2. It looked like they are working down the building, drilling the same holes they did on the ground level from the top via the window washing platforms. I snapped some photos with the telephoto lens from the Rice garage roof last week, but I never really looked to see if they came out. If they suck, I'll get out there today or tomorrow and take some more.
  3. I was lucky enough to take a tour of the project back in the spring. It's come along a lot further than when I was there and looks great. Fun fact that I didn't realize until told. The window system used the visitor center is actually wood not metal. I don't know the reasoning behind using that system vs a conventional metal one, but you basically have to know it wasn't metal and thump on it and notice it.
  4. Downtown Friday Night & Saturday Morning
  5. I didn't get a picture but, the scaffolding on the Jones Hall side of the building was blown over by wind gust about 4:30-5pm yesterday. Most of it fell on to the ramp to the basement garage, and by 8ish the company that put it up was onsite removing the collapsed scaffolding debris. All but about confirmed my previously irrational fear and not being a fan of walking under it.
  6. I had forgotten that I took this about 2 weeks ago. I'm a newbie when it comes to wide angle stuff / compositing.
  7. I'm think the portion south of HCC is already done. Last time I rode from Herman park to Downtown there the new sharrows were marked decently, frequently. and the traffic was low enough that it didn't feel dangerous to me.
  8. New glass panels on the "Front" being installed.
  9. Per HBJ here: https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2019/10/28/its-official-hines-pe-firm-buy-houstons-tallest.html There was an RFP to a few architectural firms for concepts last year, but I hadn't paid attention to which firm was awarded. Looks to be HOK per this article.
  10. FYI: If you didn't know already, Lovett has a job listing for a "graphic designer" on Linkedin right now, but the description reads more like a UI/UX design and Animation role. Required proficiency in Adobe XD and After Effects, so it looks like they are using "graphic designer" as a catch all title in this case. No affiliation or anything, I just happened to randomly read the description yesterday.
  11. City Skylines, Anno 1800, and Civilization are the in a category of "Oh god, where did my day go?', games.
  12. Scaffolding on both Travis & Capitol now.
  13. Looks like they are taking full advantage of the COVID traffic break. This was spray paint lines a week or so ago when I rode from Downtown to Herman Park and back.
