HAIF - Houston's original social media

Recommended Posts

I noticed this last night. I live right by downtown and I can see the skyline from my apartment, but last night I had a "was that there before and I'm just noticing it now?" moment. Apparently it is in fact new!

It would be funny if it was for Valentine's day because those same buildings didn't don festive lights during Christmas or July 4.

Welcome!

Thanks, Subdude. I've been lurking so long, I already feel like I know many of you (but not in a creepy way). I think I have a feel for the dynamic of the board and have learned so much. A long overdue thank you to all of you for entertaining and educating me about Houston. I love it here.

As far as the lights, if it is for the American Heart Association, then it isn't lame. For Valentine's Day? Lame. How big do you think those light bulbs are? Like as big as your head? Bigger?

depending on whose head you're referring to, it cant be that big to gigantic.

I need to make more effort to pay attention to my e-mails at work. I work at the Enterprise building and an e-mail was sent out to all tenants at the end of January letting us know that we will be participating in the Cities Go Red to raise awareness for women and heart disease.

To see the cities that participated in it last year: http://goredforwomen.org/cities_go_red.aspx

At night they also turn the lights red under the trees in our (newly built!) plaza.

I think it would've been cool to see other buildings downtown participate!

It is not just downtown-the medical center buildings and the Galleria buildings seem to all have red lights. I was noticing that too recently. Every highrise in or near downtown has some type of bright lights on the top(or near the top) The Royalton has two new bright white lights on top. The helicopters get really close to the buildings on the edge of downtown-ecpecially the HPD helicopters. I sure it's a new safety rule. The Mosaic codos also have some new red lights. I also read that Mosaic was already in bankruptcy before the second building is finished! I have seen training exercises in the early morning in one of the vacant buildings where helicopters fly just feet from the buildings to drop the men down.

Here are some pics that I took when these lights were up; the greenspoint area was changed to red also during the same time. I too thought this was for Valentine's day. They should keep lights such as these on 100% of the time as in the past; the push to go green is not saving much electricity and makes our downtown look like a ghost town. I would be happy if the lights went on from dusk to 10pm as a compromise.
