If I had the option to live and work downtown, I would do it without a car. In theory, everything should eventually be either within walking or biking distance, or accessible by bus or rail. Outside of that I would Uber it. The savings in car payments and gas would be well worth it.

amazing pics and it may be just me but i so wish they would remove those cruise ship red smokestacks...i know that is the point of having them but i think that is the main thing making the building look dated...cannot wait to see the final look though...they are actually making the GRB cool which is something i never thought would happen!

I wonder what conventions Houston will see now that we couldn't get before. Is there some sort of list of 25 conventions that cities compete for that bring in the most revenue or prestige?

 

 

great question!!! exciting to think about!

not so much conventions, but shows... the Boat show, various Home shows bring in huge crowds. The quilting convention is huge, the high school coaches convention is huge, and the public transportation industry convention probably brings the most business with them.
