On second looks, not a huge fan of how far setback the building is and how suburban it looks. 

 

I guess you can't expect much when it's adjacent to a frontage road. 

It's replacing a big box store, (as you pointed out), on a frontage road. I'm hoping they plant some trees in the green space.

i am curious to see the backside.

 

 

Only in Houston could a 24 story building be considered "suburban looking"

 

 

Why build the parking garage? 610 is getting so bad, they can basically park their cars there and come back to them after work!

 

Amegy thread bringing out the snark!

 

Snark on posters. Snark on.

The downtown location does have a large vault. And as expensive as they are to build, there really is no need for two. While the vault area could flood in theory. The vault itself would still be bone dry on the inside. Just making your way down there is a trek in itself.

Crane ops answer this for me please; do you climb from the very bottom of the tower to reach the cab, or are there walkways placed further up the tower as it rises? Just seems like a haul for whoever has to use that taller crane...looks too far away to connect to the actual tower

They will take the service elevator as high as it goes if one is available otherwise you have to climb.

My buddy who is a tower op usually gets to work about 30 mins early for the climb. He says that's his exercise for the day. The good thing is they only have to make that climb twice a day, because once you're up there, there's no coming down until the shift is over.
