  1. I'm all for historic preservation, but the old post office hardly strikes me as architecturally or historically significant.
  2. That would make sense. Unfortunately there are some pretty wealthy NIMBY's in the neighborhood.
  3. I wrote this before I noticed the caption. Doh!
  4. For ease of reference, I think it makes sense to keep it as Capitol Tower, at least for the time being. My guess is that most people still think of Bank of America Tower as the structure at 700 Louisiana, and in fact googling the term mainly brings up references to the older building. The new structure is still probably thought of as Capitol Tower by most people.
  5. Nice picture. I'm guessing about 1963-64. The Tenneco Building (1963) looks complete, but 806 Main (JW Marriott) doesn't appear to have received its facade slipcover yet.
  6. From Paper City: The City Government's Remarkable Feat Defies the Odds With Ambitious Climate Action Plan
  7. From the NY Times: Storms and development have taken their toll on the midcentury architecture of the space race.
  8. The high-rises behind the 1020 Holcombe building look extremely theoretical.
  9. Nice pictures! Can anyone identify the street with the accident in front of Jack-in-the-Box?
  10. I really don't see this building becoming light/airy/modern. It still looks very 1970s, especially with the bronze-shaded windows.
  11. The article is in the Marq*e topic as well, so all may be happy.
  12. It's fine in this thread, since anyone wanting to know the fate of Spaghetti Warehouse would look here.
  13. I loved these. It sounds crazy to say I looked forward to the new phone books every year, but I did.
  14. At one point there was a footbridge connecting the Sam Houston Coliseum to parking across the bayou. I believe that these are the bridge foundations.
