So the biggest fast food chain also happens to produce a lot of items that end up as litter....shocked.   But why are we putting this on them? Once a person purchases their food its theirs a

McDonald’s has owned this land since 1988 it looks like. They sold a bit to RD so he can build The Titan, now Astoria.

What's taking so long with this?

 

I'm assuming they are just having to drill all of the piers right now, similar to what happened at SkyHouse.  That building really took a while to get off the ground because of the drilling they did prior to vertical construction.  Might have to have someone like Purdue chime in though with more knowledge.

Well the building went vertical today. There are several steel rebar columns about 14 feet or so in the air attached to the dug up 'rectangles' in the photo above. Driving too fast today to snap a pic, but if I get a red light tomorrow I'll upload a pic.

We all love the beautiful, hi-def photos people post on here, but we're also pretty forgiving of relevant cell phone shots.

 

Alec speaks the truth.  Being a suburban dweller I'm always happy to see pictures of any kind on all the progress going on around town.  Even if it's just dirt moving.  Thank you to all who contribute...I will always chip in when I have the opportunity.

You all have inspired me. I'll do better as the project goes on.

 

Pic 1 is a view of the new crane taken going south on Post Oak 200 feet south of Uptown Park Blvd.

 

Pic 2 & 3 are sitting at the light headed south on Post Oak at Four Oaks

 

Hopefully this will satiate the masses until the real photographers can get an update : )

so soon there will be 2 more cranes in this pic?

2? What do you mean. The only other crane will be for the BHP tower. (Unless you count whatever else is going on at BLVD Place-which probably won't have a crane for at least the next half year or so. Probably longer than that.)

In the bottom of the tower..?

What's wrong with grass and landscaping?

 

I don't think the poster dislikes grass and landscaping by itself, but in Houston when an urban development has grass and landscaping it usually means little or no sidewalks and poor street level interaction.

From the renderings it almost looked like the entire tower was condos. Esoecially the night-time renderings where it looked as if lights from inside were lit throughout the entire tower, not just the top.

Bingo! I like grass and landscaping but not in urban environments to a certain extent.

See the "podium" garage at the base? It's blended in very well.. It's a shame other towers can't blend their garages into the structure like this

 

Since there are only 60 or 70 something units for this tower, there isn't this need for a giant garage. I think this "podium" blends in very nicely as well. Beautiful building IMO.
