^^^ @Triton that VERY FUTURISTIC outward ceiling lighting design / effect... is officially badass!  obviously, this particular HINES edifice is going to achieve some very potent next level surprises and effects.  this building is going to be the COOLEST...

I'm thinking 4 honking huge spotlights, like 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 candlepower on each corner, pointed straight up. even on a cloudless night, the super lumens plus pollution would make for a bright light shining into the heavens and blinding pilots for miles.

Sheeeeeeesh!!! If the past 20 years brought us to this point, I can only imagine the next 20. WOW

Imagine what Houston would have looked like if the oil market hadn't crashed in the 80s.

1/4th of the crown was lit tonight and it cements Texas Tower as the most stunning addition to the skyline. Even just with 1/4th of it lit. The light was brightest along the very top of the slanted crown along the roof. The light cascades through the rest of the crown and mostly clear glass gently fading towards the bottom of the crown. I was in awe! 
 

Unfortunately I didn‚Äôt get pictures because I was driving. ūüėĒ¬†

There's a video on SnapChat map over downtown it shows the light green crown light up, looks awesome

I love the view out to Jones Hall!  This diagonal view and the redevelopment of Jordy's Toilet into a proper park (okay, more so the latter) should do wonders for the appreciation of our wonderful performing arts buildings downtown
