Look at all the company our big boy has now.

 

I didn't even notice that all those buildings around "Texas Commerce Tower"* are new.

I am glad to see that at least some developers are choosing designs that prevent otherwise-hideous parking structures from overwhelming the appearance of their projects.   My local poster child for the opposite approach is the Aloft Hotel on Westheimer.  Perhaps there are worse examples, but I drove by it again today and was still annoyed by it - the ugliest Aloft I've seen.

No this is just a sequencing thing since the field crew can't use the tower crane during the day. I work for the company doing the curtain wall on this beast.

 

Thanks for that explanation! I live next door and the crane lights are a new night light :) Was wondering what was going on.

 

I walk the dog at 5 a.m. and work is going on, come home at 7 and still working, look out the window -- they're still at it

Thanks for all the pics, especially the last one highlighting the notch / tower corner continuation. I think that is a very cool design feature!

Gorgeous photos, every single one of them!  Thanks goes to the photographer and the poster for sharing one of America's most dynamic and beautiful big city skylines.
