There are a few buildings similar to River point around so my vote would go to Houston as well. I like that facade especially.

both turned out beautifully. I vote for River Point. Despite being in Chicago, it had a more significant impact on its neck of the woods in the skyline.

I think both had significant impacts, but I like River Point better. By the way, is 609 Main at Texas still under construction? I visited Houston earlier this week and it didn't look open.
