Houston without a doubt has the best skyline in Texas. I really like how none of the buildings seem like glass boxes. They all have great designs. 10/10

yes, things are starting to pick back up. i know of at least three 50+ towers currently being built with more plans on the way. ground was just broke over off milam for a new tower next to chase as well. i would like to find out mre details about that one. but lack of zoning does make things kinda weird. proper zoning would probably give us something close to what chicago has going if you combined all the other scrapers around town.

If the great oil boom of the '80's had not've slowed down, we may just be

the pics.
houston has many building downtown that are over a hundred year old. maybe they are not huge scrapers like new york, but how many town really have antique scrapers like what your talking about anyway?
