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, on the other hand, am not 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

Is work on all these high rises still going on as scheduled or are they stalled with the quarantine?

It was not previously apparent to me why there were notches (?) in the sides of the parking podium, but this photo shows that they correspond to the corners of the office tower. Very cool (at least to me)!

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

It's going up really fast. When is it going to top out, maybe early this summer?

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.

Peeking through.

 

Also, is this Houston's best angle?

I was just walking that path for the first time today and thinking the same thing... but at dusk
