Nope, its good to like this more. I love this style. I don't know why, or even what style it is, but I like it and any building like it.

Wow, Galleria area is gonna have a little building boom. This project, M-Square (not sure when that’s going up though), plus the 3(?) residential towers…am I missing anything else! There’ll be quite a lot of towers popping up here! 🙌

The growth in this area from Post Oak to Arabella to PNC (BBVA) to BHP is just impressive. I have worked in this area for 7 years and have seen around 12 towers go up.

There's a scene in an early Frasier when one of Daphne's exes comes to Seattle and is invited to the apartment and he looks out at the Space Needle and he thinks for a second and then says "Big", which is how I feel about this.

I feel like so many of these 30-ish story residential high rises look the same. It’s not grand but it’s not ugly. I just sort of feel so-so about most of the shit that has gone up in uptown/downtown. No?

Amegy & Aspire had a Hannover baby. I dig it. It's nice filler. Certainly cleaner and not cheap looking like most of the stuff we get. The views from the higher and south facing units will be amazing.

I think of it as a 2010’s (yes, bleeding into the 2020’s now) version of what the Parklane, Spires, Houstonian hotel, and the Bristol were for the early 80’s. Similar design, not offensive, but not impressive either.

That's a Tel Aviv complaint. Maybe in other places, but it's not like those Chinese high-rises.

Its interesting that this doesn't incorporate the back "lot" into the use. 

The other previous renderings all show a shiny new building back there. I wonder what use that will ever get.

That's because that rear lot was always meant to accommodate a third building. When this site was initially planned, there were three separate buildings planned for it. It will probably be up to a third developer to develop that final lot sometime in the future.
