I think the "Damn Decade" has to do with the I-45 realignment and 45/69 trenching. 

 

What does the I-45 realignment have to do with guest room renovations?

There are two separate topics.  A GRB Project and the Hilton Rooms reno.  You are correct, one has nothing to do with the realignment.  The other one does.

Any info on when city council vote on the W Hotel? 

 

I’ve heard that’s likely not to proceed.

^ I hope it doesn’t get built. Houston’s W should at least look a little bit interesting

What’s the reason why?

 

I’m going to remain silent on that. Let’s just say financing issues.

The tallest cherry picker I've ever seen is reaching over the top of GRB right now. I hope someone a little closer can take a picture; it's got to be twice as tall as the building itself.

I feel bad for those guys. I had a project a few months ago on several older water towers where the city(not in houston) had lost the original drawings and wanted to analyze the towers. I was on a 100' lift for about 2 weeks. Photo below is @ about 70'. Anyway long story short, anytime we moved that sucker it felt like it bounced around 1'-2'. Made my knees shake every-time.

Biggest one JLG makes is the 1850J  which has a 185' reach, biggest I've ever been on was 150' and it was scary to be up there when it moves around. Bend at the knees to absorb the movement. Actually they are called AWP(Aerial Work Platform) not cherry picker but most people just call them "JLG's since they are one of the most common, like Jello or Kleenex.

Self-sticks are overrated. We're moving onto cherry pickers.
