Have you ever been inside of their headquarters on South Main / 90?

Never personally.  Have you?

I know all about the area of their campus though :ph34r:

Do they need all that extra land behind their factory? Reminds me of wealthy family's in the 1920s to 1950s who have their house in the middle of a large parcel surrounded by trees.

I have never been inside of their headquarters but have always been curious about it.  My parents bought their first home just south of it in 1963 where I grew up.  We always passed by it on the way home from being out.  The Art Deco style with the reflecting basin is rather classic.

Is south of there also called Willow Meadows area by those in the vicinity?  I see that the City of Houston considers South Main to be a boundary between superneighborhoods.  Ordinarily I would be skeptical of that -- since both sides of a street do not work anything like both banks of a river -- but this particular bypass route is not part of a neighborhood streetscape in either direction.
