The reflection of the Wyndham sign was the biggest clue. From there, Google street view confirmed the window pattern of the Intercontinental hotel. Actually, my first thought was it was the new garage just north of the Texas Tower under construction, with a reflection of the Chase tower. But, obviously, there is no Wyndham next door.

I purposely include that in my pic to make it easier for someone to guess where I was.😎 I was going to use it in a r/bikehouston Bike Tag game that I play, but may have to re-think it now.

I wish I could get into the 16 story next door but it's gates are locked on weekends. Love doing high rise parking garages since we don't have any hills around here. I used to live in the Hill country of Texas and miss the hills.

We need to get you on instagram. This thread + your construction updates + crane things would be a great instagram to follow. Myself and a few others on here that have instagrams would agree with this.

I signed up for one years ago but I can't remember my password and every time I try to use my email they tell me it's already in use, yeah me. I end up going around in circles and just give up.

does this mean I am wrong? haha

No, you got the location exactly right. Originally Bludworth Bond Shipyard, then got bought out by Halter Marine, a year later became Friede Goldman Halter then Bollinger Shipyard and now run by Southwest Shipyard.
