  1. See the final posts on the second page of Urbannizer’s thread that I linked in my post.
  2. Same "design" firm as the hideous "Chelsea at Museum District" project which turned out to be fraudulent. https://tcw-group.com/projects/the-chelsea-at-museum-district-high-rise/
  3. Nope. Somewhere on the MFAH website (I don’t remember exactly where) is the statement that the museum campus is a “drone-free zone.” It’s also a tripod-free zone. I had no trouble because I was flying the drone from the southeast corner of Binz and Fannin Streets… completely off the MFAH campus but within direct sight of my drone.
  4. Now, if the buses could actually use the street without being swallowed up by a pothole...
  5. It's a great area to live in. Not great at all for retail or restaurants. Which is personally depressing because I lived behind the Plaza Hotel many years ago when the original Montrose Butera's Deli was where the Glassell is now and the neighborhood was a lot more alive than it is now.
  6. It's not just Houston. Lanes on two major streets in San Antonio (Broadway and Nacogdoches) have been closed for a year now while some large mixed-use apartment building is being built. And lanes get closed all the time in New York. Usually it's a covered sidewalk that temporarily replaces the lane that's closed. https://www.google.com/maps/@40.754783,-73.9990259,3a,60y,233.13h,87.92t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s589UpDdx98pW3SiuyYxJcA!2e0!7i16384!8i8192?hl=en
  7. Looks to me like that upper right corner is sagging below the rest of the panels. Like it just needs to be pushed up and properly affixed.
  8. There's a video I found on Youtube some time ago that is both fascinating and scary as f*ck. It consists of drone footage over downtown at night interspersed with these guys and girls hanging off the edges of buildings. I wish I could find it again. It's very well done.
  9. It's been a thing for a while now. http://swamplot.com/reaching-the-downtown-skyline-photography-studio-at-the-top-of-houston-highrises/2015-02-13/ https://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/article/Downtown-Houston-skyline-photos-daredevil-crew-14837927.php
  10. Some photos from my Flickr album "Over Houston." https://www.flickr.com/photos/23333264@N00/albums/72177720296375415/with/51871333814/
  11. Do we know if this is definitely happening? Is it safe to get my hopes up?
