I saw this picture on the webcam and I just had to post it, very nice picture with the rain shaft over downtown and then the sunlight toward the med center. The reflection of this building is super ni

Since the seven floors of parking are not actually under the building. Does that make it a separate parking garage of 7 floors,

and an office tower of 15 floors and a conference center?

 

Well being that they haven't jumped the crane and they're working on the 15th floor, I'd imagine this is it. The renderings looked far taller tho.

I always found it odd that this building was meant w a relative blasé when the renderings were made public... I think it will be a gorgeous building w an unprecedented presence on 610.

 

No blasé here. I'm quite fond of this building. The trifecta of this building, The Post Oak, and Arabella will be spectacular. Best boom non-continuance ever!

Yeah, that was one of the more egregious examples of the rush to hate that is endemic on this board. A lot of our forumers act as if there is a prize for being the first to hate on a project.

I just went back through all 14 pages in this thread and didn't see anyone hating the building. It was slightly over-hyped, and met with slight disappointment, but generally liking the building.

I'm gonna go ahead and use my higgly intelligent deductive skills to assume crane operators have legs for days.

Lol, not really.

You'd be surprised at how out of shape most of the guys I work with are.

You only make that climb twice a day, once in the morning, and then when your shift is over. The other 12 hours you're just sitting on your ass.

The higher cranes usually have an elevator on the building that takes you most of the way up.

How do they poop?

They even have lunch up there?
