    Jeez, I have missed a LOT. This was always my favorite resi high rise, I remember wishing so hard it would get built, AMAZING!
  2. One Market Square: Proposed Office Tower for Block 43

    This is going to be a parking garage, right?
  3. Capitol Tower by Skanska, formerly Houston Club Building

    Yes in fact, that was us. I got to help out on that job, it was lots of fun!
  4. Capitol Tower by Skanska, formerly Houston Club Building

    Im not sure because I haven't been downtown in a while, but I heard my buddy is going downtown in the 500 ton with luffer this weekend to tear down a Bellows tower crane. Does anyone know where this might be? Don't know if I'll be there on the job or not, but if I go I'll take some pictures or ask him to take a few.
  5. Capitol Tower by Skanska, formerly Houston Club Building

    Its called a jib (if its a tower crane), not a boom And since they don't like to build jibs in the air one section at a time, they normally put the entire jib together on the ground and install it in one lift, as seen in the pictures above. A tower crane isn't strong enough to fly the entire jib to the top of another tower crane, much less the counterweights, it would be out of chart.
  6. Oh my f*****g GOD that is a beautiful building!

    Sorry guys, my friend got the job as the crane op on this project. He says theyre just expanding the parking garage, making it even more massive. I think they just want to generate more parking revenue.
  8. "Guns Up Texas" documentary

    Exactly Lock! Thats always been my argument. I actually went into detail about the founding fathers and everything you just touched on, but they did some heavy editing. Overall I'm happy with the final product, it was a fun little piece to film.
  9. Hey guys, A documentary I was lucky to be a part of has just released a few of the segments on YouTube. The basic subject of the film is guns and gun owners in Texas, and covers a range of issues from campus carry to open carry, and why some people do or do not agree on these issues. The segment I am featured in is titled "Hip Hop And Guns" and can be seen in the link below. The camera crew came to my home in Midtown and caught some footage of the Metro Rail and a couple of skyline shots. So give it a view and enjoy! Thanks for watching
  10. One Market Square: Proposed Office Tower for Block 43

    Wait, so all this will ever be is a parking garage? Or will "phase 2" be a tower?
  11. I cant believe I'm saying this, but........they've actually managed to make the GRB....not that ugly anymore.
