  1. How much does one have to hate Houston to make this mistake? From the Chicago Athenaeum website, 2021 Awards:: https://www.chi-athenaeum.org/the-2021-awards/?page=13
  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?
  12. Now imagine what it was like 2 decades earlier! 😱
  13. I have a talent for hiding my angry, sanctimonious tone within a seemingly helpful tweet. 😄
  14. I tweeted the correction to them and they thanked me and changed it.
  15. "When the department store opened in 1939, this section of the Fourth Ward" Second sentence and already wrong. It's in the Third Ward.
  16. The sidewalk on one side is blocked halfway through the tunnel. My guess is some kind of barrier will be installed at some point soon.
  17. Exactly what I was thinking.
  18. The temporary signs say "This is NOT a sidewalk." I also read that pedestrians are to use separate trails. And anyway, why would anyone in their right mind want to walk through that next to traffic? The noise would be terrible.
