  1. I feel like so many of these 30-ish story residential high rises look the same. It’s not grand but it’s not ugly. I just sort of feel so-so about most of the shit that has gone up in uptown/downtown. No?
  2. 2nd quarter of 2023 is a full year from now. This thing is likely to be cancelled, put on hold, and eventually value engineered down to a one story mattress firm by the time it actually breaks ground. Bet.
  3. Is it fair to assume that based on the amount of elevators banks in the proposal of the office building that it will be taller than the one that's currently under construction? Seems like a large number of elevator banks--more than on the floor plan of the tower currently U/C.
  4. Rumor mill is at it again--this time with Stephen leaving the Fox 26 station. No word on where he may be headed. Meteorologist Collin Myers (former 13) was spotted filling in this past weekend in Stephens place. Hmmm
  5. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2021/05/blake-mathews-leaving-khou-11.html Looks like it was true!
  6. I'm hearing that Blake posted to his instagram story that he is leaving KHOU. No word on where he's going or when he's leaving.
  7. Looks like its rein as Texas' tallest building is on barrowed time. Really sad that a pint-sized city like Austin will soon hold the title of having the states tallest building. The amount of skyscrapers on the books for Austin is nothing short of amazing. It's like what Houston experienced 40 years ago that gave rise to the skyline we know today.
  8. Did Houston permanently lose any routes or airlines during this pandemic? I see Houston no longer has a direct to Sydney. That's the one that stick out to me the most since I've been on that flight several times. Any others? Are they coming back?
  9. 54 STORIES! Wow, looks like Transco finally has a baby brother on the way... At 750 feet, it should be almost the exact same height as 609 Main and Texaco Heritage Plaza.
  10. What will the tallest building of 2021 be in Houston?
  11. This building DOMINATES the skyline coming in on I-45. It's going to be a great addition to the skyline. Once they top out the last office floor, there's still like a 5-story crown that goes on top so this still has some room to grow.
  12. Can somebody explain to me the benefit of having one gate and two or three destinations from IAH when all your resources, planes, mechanics, operations are out of HOU? I mean don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have more traffic at IAH but from a business perspective, nobody thinks Southwest and IAH.
  13. Where are we at on this building? Are we getting close to topping out?
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
  16. Oh man, what are the chances that Williams will have some competition soon?
  17. Hey, it’s not ghetto! 😂 I think it’s really nice. Great addition.
  18. 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
  19. 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?
  20. This is going to be a very imposing building. Already is actually.
