  1. Has anybody seen the blue lights on the new highrise just south of HCC? Man, it looked awesome tonight! Every balcony was lit up in blue lights and really made it stand out. I wish I could have snapped a pic but I was driving.
  2. Where are we at on this building? How many more floors? I know it's early but it doesn't look as imposing as it does in some of the early renderings to me. Is it just me?
  3. Oh man, what are the chances that Williams will have some competition soon?
  4. Hey, it’s not ghetto! 😂 I think it’s really nice. Great addition.
  5. The quintessential Houston treatment. Ghetto. That is a 1983 office building, straight up. Next
  6. Wow, well, the new renderings are nice and it'll be a major upgrade over what we have now. Too bad the entire thing won't be needed for quite sometime. While I think the new renderings are nice and clean, I still think our airport (as well as most airports in the US) lack a 'wow' factor like DXB, SIN, ICN, PEK or SZX. I wish our cities, airports and railways were the envy of the world the way we were in the 50s and 60s. Oh wellz
  7. Anybody have any updates on the terminal? Have they completed the Terminal C north demo? I know it seems dramatic but I wonder if IAH will ever return to the air traffic we once had. If so, it'll be years I bet. Are we in danger of losing any foreign flags over this pandemic?
  8. This is going to be a very imposing building. Already is actually.
  9. Btw, I noticed yesterday for the first time that the rebar sticking up for the next floor is now visible from I-45 as you pass the aquarium.
  10. Yikes, this thing got a pretty significant hair cut. Not nearly as dominate first proposed. Looks like it got the quintessential Houston treatment.
  11. What are the benefits for a developer being confined to such a small, confined lot? At first glance, it's hardly big enough for a row of portable potties much less a highrise. It seems like if I was the developer, I'd want a full city block or at least half of one. Is it as simple as the price of the lot?
  12. Nice edition but will be cloaked from view from all sides of downtown except the east side. In-fill is still good tho.
  13. It's sad that our state's tallest building is also one of the ugliest. There is nothing special about this building at all. Just a tall, gray, bland, box.
  14. So I haven't been following this thread at all and jumping in the middle of the convo here, would somebody be willing to sum up where we are here? The only thing I know is that they'll be: -widening it by one lane from the beltway into downtown -reroute the 45 around the east side of downtown -bury the freeway near GRB -add 24/7 express/toll lanes in each direction like the katy freeway Is the gist of it? When is this supposed to break ground? The north freeway clear out to The Woodlands needs about 5 lanes added in each direction. That freeway is a death
