They've had a tree on the roof of the newer Texaco tower for a while now.  At first I thought it was to indicate that something was topped out (strange since it's been topped out for the better part of a century!), but after seeing the tinsel on it, it may well have just been a Christmas tree!  Click for a wider view:

Also, I've noticed this last week they've had a whole lot of activity on the roof.  First they finally replaced the brick on the corner of the mechanical penthouse that had been removed months ago, then they were removing a lot of large objects (part of the elevator mechanicals maybe?) from it with the crane, and now they have a bunch of guys on top of the mechanical penthouse removing a lot of debris.

Well considering the other native grasses popping up, I think this may just be their veiled attempt at getting LEED certified. Although, that is one of the saddest looking green roofs I've ever seen.

I don't see it? The windows at Cougar Village make it look like a prison or something. Texaco looks like an old school high rise with punched out windows.

Edit. Ohhh.. I'm on my phone. That tiny strip/row of windows facing the inside?
