The advantage of being at work early....

That brochure is amateur at best.

 

True, but this was clearly made as an update presentation and while the graphics might be "amateur" the information isn't and it's a solid update of everything that is being planned for Downtown. The portions with Main Street and Dallas Street/Shopping District had images which I don't know if we have seen yet or at least in a package with other efforts.

Hardly... Howard's interior is caramel not cream. And it's a Cayenne, right Huge?

W.T.F.

You are either a stalker or a Porsche connoisseur who can determine a model just by the sterring wheel.

Either way, bravo Montrose, bravo.....

I know the odds aren't too good right now, but if we can just get the Marquette building going up, it would be like putting a cherry atop the world's largest sundae.

But wait a minute, the Marquette high rise IS going up already, are you thinking of another project?

And how on earth can he tell the interior color through that window tint?

Or maybe I have the same model minus the Carmax sticker.

Just kidding. It's not hard to tell. Your Porsche is obviously a Cayenne because of how high you are relative to the unfocused light rail. If you were in a sedan or sports car you would be much lower. You can see the interior dash of the car through a sliver of sunlight in that picture above. 1+1=2.

Inorite?:lol:

Im afraid he knows what I look like, what shirt I was wearing, my home address and what I had for dinner all from that one pic I posted!

Please the only one here obsessed with you is yourself. :P

You are giving me way too much credit. It's a miracle everyday I can even perform basic motor skills.

My bad, block 98 iirc. Next to Hess garage.

Ahhh yes, the 40 story slim tower.

That too is my most anticipated groundbreaking, Im salivating at the thought of it finished along with the rest of the convention district projects.

LargeTexas is right, the convention district, when completed for the Super Bowl, has the potential to be ground zero for all the big city, Manhattan style hustle and bustle that we are all craving for downtown Houston.
