Can I be a moderator? I want to be in control of the Houston Bashing department instead of Montrose1100. He's lazy and weird.  

Response, you're not wrong, but anyone can critique developments. That's the point of the forum. And you will never take the crown of Houston's #1 hater from me.

Play nicely and accept the opinions of others.

I dunno what y'all are talking about, I like the use of different motifs represented by the glass. What y'all probably aren't thinking about is that in a multi-building development, you'll always want a building that uses all of the types of glass used by the other buildings. 

It kind of ties the whole development together, like a coda. That building is a coda.

Play nice and accept? O.k. 

But this advice comes from the same guy who laughed when I said that any city would be lucky to get this beautiful 58-story building.

Mod or Troll? I can't tell anymore. Have fun hating.

I hope they are placing the glass on the office portions so that they can do the interiors, this sign on the parking garage makes me wonder if they are going to cover the parking areas too. Maybe it will be lit up and be visible through the glass.

God I hope not, this building would look like hot garbage if they left it essentially they way it looks now. 

Maybe they’re waiting on a 4th color of glass to clad the garage.

If you look closely at this render it shows the garage portion being clad with a screen like covering. I think this will be the way they go.

Still a chance to do some fun things with color. They’ve got multiple colors with the glass already. I hope they commit to that. Maybe some peacock blue.

The statue of Nike of Samothrace was installed at the lobby. It is one of the most celebrated sculptures in the world and a fine example of the late Hellenistic period. The Louvre provided the 4D file for the statue to be sculpted in Greece and was intended to be placed at the Sanctuary of Gods in the island of Samothrace. It represents Goddess Nike landing on the prow of a ship in a fierce headwind. It is 13’ high and weighs 24 tons.

Hate to sound like Arthur asking about the moose, but where is the head?

I mean. Maybe pay a local artist to do something unique rather than paying who knows how much for something that's just a copy?

At least patrons/patients visiting for their medical needs will know exactly where their co-pays & out of pocket medical expenses are going.

Given the amount of money that thing cost, and how expensive it looks, there is no way in hell that garage stays as it is. But, there has been a slowing down on the construction a bit on the weekends/the construction people are less visible, so either they are doing wiring inside or the construction crew has slowed down for whatever reason (prolly vacation, seems like everyone is taking vacation now).

It is a bit interesting to hear the MPNA people whine about the noise (particularly music) coming from the site, I'm like...who lives near enough to this that they could hear anything? We all know the Mond is empty 😝

Because local artists only want to make recycled steel column statues.

I’ve gotta say I am hoping the screens for the open parking garage some how pull this one together.  I think the contrast between the green and blue glass is just too much.  Also, the designers should have worked to get a softer transition between the vision panels and the opaque panels in the curtain wall system.  But hey, it ain’t my money!

This does however look like something that belongs in Memorial City and not in/around the Museum District.
