It's a postcard when the crane is done. Very HOUSTON!

I agree.  IMO, this view more accurately captures Houston than the commonly used view from I-10. It also reinforces Houston as the Bayou City.

Does anybody have an idea what the LED lighting will look like?  I read where it's supposed to be in the east and west recesses of the building.  So is that just like a stripe, or something most substantial?

I'd imagine that the LED lights will run down the wings no?

Perfect picture Brijonmang! Great opportunity for a parallax effect.

This would be a cool Android wallpaper (if it works), I have a Dell Venue 8 7000 that has a few wallpapers that appear to move as you tilt the device.

According to the Downtown District they will be taking down the tower crane this weekend and are closing Texas Ave and Fannin St around the building from 6pm Fri till 5am Mon.

Interesting how the building is dynamic from some views and subtle from others.  Here's a subtle view...

Couldn't get the best pic while being a distance away, but I came across this view last week on N Memorial Way near the retirement community. I enjoy how the building and its neighbors interact from this angle. Capitol Tower will be a nice addition to this cluster.

 

My favorite views are from the North Side. At the Fulton rail station, 609 Main is a jaw dropper.

I'm with you on that one. It is amazing just how the building looks so different from the various angles. I'm sure it has a lot to do with the neighboring buildings, too.

I know I've harped on this in the past, but the impact this building will have on the surrounding area will be transformational.  I think we will start to see some high-end hotels in this area of the CBD.  Pennzoil, Capitol Tower, Bank of America, Chase Tower, BG Group Place, and 609 Main are the best assets downtown.  The next 5-10 years will be very exciting.
