Yes, the first tower crane is going up and according to a rigger and some Skanska workers, 2 more tower cranes will be going up in the next couple of weeks. The office portion is going up too!!!  They

It's kind of open, at least if you wander around from Pennzoil, there's nothing/no one to stop you continuing through the tunnel level.    It looks really well done. In one mole person's opi

I counted 22 floors based on the signs by the service elevator.

The flat top tower crane is running out of head room and will have to be jumped soon.

I really appreciate all the photos taken and put online here.  Thank you so much !  It's really great to see the progress often, especially since some of us that are so very interested live so far away now.  :)

This will add so much to this 4 block area not in height but how the building will relate to the others in comparison to the very bland brick Houston club building it replaces. You can already see the way

the other buildings reflect off all of this glazing. it will be a beautiful array of colors, patterns and light playing off the surfaces of this multi faceted gem. 

This is a great addition to the neighborhood in terms of sight lines and the views from inside the new tunnel entry looking up and out to the existing structures, and will also add a totally new dimension to the downtown tunnel system bringing in sun light.

I was going to grad school and waiting tables at Carrabbas at the time. I waited on Joe Jamail and Hugh LIdetke the night they won the case. 

They had a bottle of Dom and left me a very nice tip. Joe was the lawyer and of course Hugh was Mr. Pennzoil.

Obviously they were very pleased, as was I.

Great photo. thanks !  This building looks about topped out at 35 floors to me.  What a great addition to the skyline, albeit not as tall as some of it's neighbors.  Mid-rise infill is good too though.

 

I count 31 completed stories with 32 completed "floors".

That "Sky Park" is going to be only for the tenants right?

 

I think so.

 

The cranes are almost getting high enough that I will soon be able to look into the cabs and watch the drivers working. I'll try not to watch them pooping.

What's crazy is that for a long time the design was to have a green roof but for it not to be accessible to anyone but maintenance people.  This is at least a 2-3 million dollar amenity that they are adding, I am curious if BOA is chipping in or if this is what they needed to include to get BOA signed as a tenant.  Regardless, this going to be one hell of a feature and will likely have one of the best downtown views.
