is it just me or does the top floors on the right side not look level to one another? something looks off to me

Probably a garage level or something.

It is taking shape... the shape of the base was throwing me off before, but now I can see it. Should be rising pretty fast soon compared to before. Be great when this becomes part of the skyline.

Looks like MainPlace is rising faster now.

Some photos I took today

Thanks for mixing in a night-time constructoin shot. Not sure I've ever seen one of those!

Also, your second picture would be great for an "after" shot.

I didn't really realize just how far east this will be, too. Along with Discovery Tower and OPP, it will really help balance out the skyline a little more from the northern and southern views.

I didn't want to start a new topic ... so I'll ask here because pf the picture in post #838. Which building(s) have an observation floor open to the public and which block would it be at)? Thanks, I have been DT thousands of times but never to an observation floor. Also, I have seen pictures of the interior of a gorgeous bank. Which building is that?

Thanks ...... Main Place is looking great!

Chase Tower (the tallest building in Texas) has one. Well's Fargo (the tall green one) has one.

I'm not sure which lobby you're speaking of, but the Chase lobby in the old Gulf Building is opulent. It's grandness is like going back in time.

Both the Chase Tower and Wells Fargo sky lobbies are great and free and open to the public. Just go up the elevator to the sky lobby floor (it should be marked) or ask security. Be careful though, security generally doesn't like it if you take pictures (still not totally sure why). You have to be sneaky to take them. Be discreet about it and don't let them see your camera when you walk in.

Is the Wells Fargo sky lobby open to the public? I know it was in the past but then they closed it... is it open to the public again?

Someone posted pics from up there very recently, not sure under what topic.

I met a friend for lunch and I took her to the Gulf Bldg. today too!

It looks like the main entrance for Main Place will be on Rusk. Pretty impressive, multi-story lobby. I can't wait to see some of the glass go up.
