New Video with Gerald Hines and the Architect talking about the "Finest Office Space Available in Houston Texas."

Nice aerials similar to the other video we saw earlier. First time I think I ever heard Hines speak.

I think the Chronic is a lil late as usual. 609's website and that video have been out for a few months.

They're still trying to sort out what to use as their new slogan.  It's down to:

 

"Yesterday's news... tomorrow!"

 

or

 

"If it's news, it's news to us!"

I know. Sorry about that. How do I fix that?

It just comes out like that.

I think that happens when you take the photos in portrait mode, try taking them in landscape mode. (Or the opposite of what I just said, one or the other)

Either that or upload your photos to imgur or tinypic first, it lets you rotate the pics before you post them.

Fantastic.  Aside from the newer stuff -- 601 Main, the pipe wrench, and 1000 Main -- it's pretty cool to consider the renovations in that pic over the last 10 or so years. From l-r,  Post Dispatch Building (Magnolia Hotel), Texaco, Texas State Hotel,  St. Germain, Commerce Tower, JW Marriott, Great Jones Building.   Lost the medical tower on Hines site, Montague Hotel, West Building, Macy's, San Jacinto Hotel.  Pretty good example of rehabbing works and replacing the obsolete with something as good or better.

Maybe some kind of white powder they put down on the dirt for the excavator? No idea but curious too

 

More than likely it's lime.  It greatly improves the stability of soil and would coincide with the fact that the ground is a little saturated.

 

Here's a little write up that Purdueenginerd probably wrote in fourth grade or so: http://www.lime.org/uses_of_lime/construction/soil.asp
