  1. I took this a few weeks ago. It was raining off and on all day, I decided to test my luck with a long exposure and I was pretty impressed with the outcome! Canon T2i 18-55mm f8 30sec exposure ISO 100 heres a link to my Flickr page https://www.flickr.com/photos/32411159@N05/15978858013/
  2. While all of these might not come to fruition its amazing what NYC could look like with these possible additions. Houston has been in a building boom for a little while know, but the economy has recovered to a point where even The Big Apple is getting some love.

  3. Press release: Enterprise Products Company Affiliate Agrees to Acquire Shell Plaza from Hines Affiliate HOUSTON, Jul 10, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Hines, the international real estate firm, and privately held Enterprise Products Company (EPCO) announced today that their respective affiliates have executed definitive agreements whereby an affiliate of EPCO would acquire Shell Plaza in downtown Houston from the Hines U.S. Core Office Fund. Shell Plaza, which consists of two buildings, One Shell Plaza and Two Shell Plaza, is a 1.8 million-square-foot office complex located in the heart of Houston's Central Business District. Completed in 1970, Shell Plaza was developed by Hines and designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Shell Plaza is the North American headquarters of Shell Oil Company and the law firm Baker Botts LLP. "We are pleased to be selected as the winning bidder to acquire Shell Plaza," said Richard H. Bachmann, president and CEO of EPCO. "Shell Plaza is a trophy, Class A office property with a premier location in Houston's Central Business District. This long-term investment reflects our confidence in Houston, its strong and diverse economy, as well as its role in global commerce and its attractive environment for business development." "Hines has had a long successful history as an owner of Shell Plaza, and we are honored to have had such a strong relationship with one of Houston's most important corporate citizens, Shell Oil Company. Since the Hines U.S. Core Office Fund and our partners acquired Shell Plaza in 2004, it has been a great investment, and we are pleased that an outstanding Houston company will be the new owner," said Charles Hazen, CEO, Hines U.S. Core Office Fund. Completion of the transaction is subject to customary due diligence and is expected to close in August 2012. Hines will continue to manage and lease Shell Plaza subsequent to the completion of the transaction. Hines is a privately owned real estate firm involved in real estate investment, development and property management worldwide.

Other office buildings Hines owns and/or manages in downtown Houston include: 717 Texas, JPMorgan Chase Tower, 601 Travis, 1100 Louisiana and BG Group Place. With offices in 110 cities in 18 countries, and controlled assets valued at approximately $22.9 billion, Hines is one of the largest real estate organizations in the world.

EPCO and its affiliates own significant equity interests in Enterprise Products Partners L.P., as well as real estate holdings in the Houston area, including the 1100 Louisiana office complex in downtown Houston.
  4. Another skyscraper name change to note. As noted by the Chronicle a few months ago, One Houston Center is now the LyondellBasell Tower. It's not exactly the "new" in "news," but it's worth noting here on HAIF for those who don't get over to the Houston Center very often.
