I remember that picture from the Houston Chronicle tropical storm Allison coverage which is about the largest storm you can ever expect.  The elevation of the Greystar property is at about the same elevation so if they put any parking lower than ground level it will likely flood once every 50+ years or so.

I wonder if Crane Guys talk to each other when they are up there. Some of them are pretty close together. Crane Operator Happy Hour.

If they are on the same site, yes they do. The jibs may overlap so the trolleys may be in the way of each other depending on what they are doing. They have to let each other know what is going on.

Finally started on metal work, the stairwell is up a couple of stories now

I really like how the staircase gives you an idea of how big this project is. My only complaint is that the crane peering over the trees on I-10 heading west would be a wonderful spot to have a tall gleeming skyscraper.

I drive by it a few times a week and no, it's a great location. There's always a lot of people along the trails and next to the baseball fields. It's a short walk to Fitzgeralds and a bunch of bars.

By the time this opens, Fitzgerald's will probably be close to closing shop.

 

 

I think it's a great location too. I'm actually surprised we didn't hear more vocal opposition from the Woodland Heights community but besides that, close to downtown, right next to all the grocery stores, and next to the long bike trails along the bayou.

I'm not sure that first level will be parking.  Theres a large stone retaining type wall just outside this picture which is why the water stopped where it did and didn't go in any further.  I think this may be patio or promenade type walking environment over to the adjacent kids playground and dog park under the bridge.
