  1. And then one day, Midtown suddenly had it's own little baby skyline. Small beginnings. Tear down the Pierce elevated, throw in about twenty to thirty more buildings in Midtown between 20-40 stories stretching all the way down to the Museum district, and Houston will have one giant, continuous skyline. One that rivals the big cities! I say give Houston about 50 more years, it is bound to happen one day. I may not live to see it but it will happen. Isnt Caydon (the Aussie company?) building 3 more high rises next to the first one?
  2. This is pretty sad, a little Houstonian doggo is losing his vision because of cataracts. I donated, was hoping I could help out and spread the word as much as possible. If you cant donate or dont want to, maybe you can just share the link where you think the right people will see it. Good luck Henry!!! https://www.gofundme.com/restore-little-henry039s-eyesight
  3. My buddy is the tower crane operator for this one. I'll post some cool stuff soon.
  4. Jeez, I have missed a LOT. This was always my favorite resi high rise, I remember wishing so hard it would get built, AMAZING!
  5. Yes in fact, that was us. I got to help out on that job, it was lots of fun!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. Wait, so all this will ever be is a parking garage? Or will "phase 2" be a tower?
  12. I cant believe I'm saying this, but........they've actually managed to make the GRB....not that ugly anymore.
