Office Tower At 1111 Travis St.

That reflection is wonderful and sure it would be nice if it was 50 floors taller, but you didn't get that view from Foleys.


Yeah, that's what I always tell myself.  Although we all wish it was taller, it certainly is a large improvement in height from Macy's/Foley's.

I took a look at the Helicopter chart for Houston; there were 3 helipads marked in downtown (the ones with an x on the right hand side).  Only the St. Joseph helipad, the Police helipad, and the Aquarium helipad even still have helicopter markings.  There are two that the pad is gone, and another that the pad was used for satellite dishes.
