So I'm back home here in Houston visiting family and this building is going to be MASSIVE!!! I don't know if it's halfway done or just a little over, but if you double its size, I would go on and say that it will be the Transco of Greenway Plaza. (Even though it's technically not in GP). I damn near caused a wreck admiring its beauty. This is the reason why I usally park my car at a friend's and have them drive me around when I visit.

 

Also, as I was enjoying my birthday weekend here, I noticed- HOUSTON HAS GROWN!!! Where are all of these people coming from? I asked my friends if there was some convention going on that weekend or something. Excuse the excessive use of capitilizaed letters and exclamations, I just LOVE THIS CITY!!!

Well... Houston is the fastest growing major city in America thanks in part to the oil/energy boom happening all over the place due to the various shale oil finds.  Houston is the center for almost all of those companies and as such its a place with a large amount of needed jobs.  Besides that, the local economy wasn't as damaged by the recession and we've been attracting out of state workers by the truck-load.

 

We're actually just starting to see the signs of large scale growth.

its hard to tell with the crappy weather, but is the south side up to the 20th floor (halfway mark)? it looks like i count 19 floors on the north side (side closest to the webcam)

EDIT: just double checked. looks official... ladies and gentlemen, we have hit the halfway point!

Are you counting the first floor as double? I'm counting 19 still

 

 

Edit: Okay yeah you are right. The weather did make it difficult to count lol

I love this deep blue color of the glass, especially when mixed with the green of the finish landscaping when all is said and done. Beautiful.

 

On a side note, does anyone know the floor to ceiling height of this building? Both deck to deck and finished floor to finished ceiling?

so that deep blue color isnt just a protective laminent(sp?) or something covering the glass? in the renderings the glass looks a much lighter shade of blue.

I drove by the other day, and you are right, it is a protective covering. I do hope the glass with retain most of that blue tone for the reasons I stated above. I've seen new buildings, both residential and in the med center with this deep blue look and I hope to see more of them.

Yes, it's clearly a film on the windows. They're making good progress building out the lower stories and putting in insulation and windows.

 

I hope they'll put in some sort of restaurant or bar on one of the upper floors, but I'd be surprised if they do.
