Crane going up this weekend according to the FAA filing.  

Well since these models have been revealed, I guess I can probably post the renderings...

That may actually be the design of the building, IMO opinion it does resemble the building in the last renderings released of BLVD Place.

Even in this rendering the other two buildings in the back ground have the same motif.

On the BLVD Place project plans I believe it says 33 stories.

 

lol i just reread the statement and realized what they meant. not more than 34 floors, but that much floor space spread out over 34 floors. i wonder why the other plans say 33.

I kinda glad it doesn't take away from the Williams tower in terms of height. I bet if the San Felipe Plaza was on this site people would complain about it "lopsiding" and ruining uptown's skyline! btw I think that tower has great orientation tapering.

I've always loved how the Williams Tower has "stood alone" in its immediate area in Uptown. It really commands attention and respect. That said, Uptown is large enough in size that something like the once proposed 53 or 55 story Ritz-Carlton would have added some much needed balance without luring very much of that attention away from the Williams Tower IMO.

What is the white crane building?

 

Hanover's 29 story condo tower.

 

@Golyadkin: is that the core starting to separate itself from the parking garage on the Hanover tower?  Hard to tell on my computer but it looks like the core with a pump arm sticking up.

It is above the rest of the building, but it's always been about a story above the rest of the garage as it's been going up.

Thank you. I kind of figured. Do you know what's proposed for the greenspace?

Glass!  You shooting with a 200mm?

 

Not for that shot. I have a 55-200 lens, but I got that one with my 18-55.

 

This was shot with my 200mm:

Also, I'm almost certain those white covered things are escalators.
