This is the view from the crane. By Kyle Tse on Flickr  

BHP Billiton Tower by Bryan Malloch, on Flickr

Look at how the Randal Davis Parking garages scar this view. A shame. He couldn't even put plants over it.

I think it looks really nice after the sun sets. I ate at true kitchen and sat outside during the mini hail storm and gazed at it. Hopefully the Astroian gets covered by development on every side, but BHP looks great (even though it looks like a cutting edge 2007 design).

i know it's sideways, but after meeting another HAIF member to gawk at the interior of Saks and drink large amounts of champagne I don't care. The "jewelry box" is ugly, I'm on the fence about Saks' interior, but the bistro. No question, an amazing space!

Monarch, have you been too infused in the Middle East that you dare forget our Latin flavor? Houston is dripping wet like the honey suckle. This lounge oozes international wealth and adornment. No matter my alcoholic state, this water hole is the crem de la crem. Next time you are in town, I personally invite you. Champagne, and gawking at the marble.

Monarch; even though Everyone pokes fun at you... I can guarantee you will be salivating at the mouth when you walk into Saks & 51 Fifteen. Hope I'm there to chauffeur you.

Wait Montrose is an uber driver? I didn't know and tbh I want a ride now....

While the idea of giving rides to strangers sounds enticing, driving an uber would take away from drinking time.
