the pics dont do it justice ... and the massing of all of the buildings tend to camouflage just how damned big all of them are

Most of them were built in the 80's during Houstons boom, but then the city went into a major bust, but things seem to be picking up again hopefully.

Wow. I was very impressed with the "New Downtown" in Houston and the Galleria area. Much better than Atlanta!

Houston and it's freeways.

Heading east on Interstate 10 into downtown.


Interstate 45 provides the best views while driving through downtown.
You going through a valley of buildings.


The tallest building not in a downtown area. Located off of Interstate 610.

It doesnt look real from some angles (like 2nd pic) as there appear to be very few small-midsize buildings to give it context! Cool looking city.

Nice City, seems very liveable. Skyline looks good to. Any European City would wish it had a skyline like Housten. 8/10

Love it. Clean, big and beautiful. The flat landscape give the skyline an even more soaring affect.

houston definitely has a massive, imposing skyline, and statistically the city as a whole (not the CBD) has the 3rd largest collection of highrise buildings in the US.

as others have mentioned, definitely some nice big towers there (johnson's gothic BofA and SOM's green-glass wells fargo tower) but it sits in the most unflattering setting (much like dallas). like LA, houston could use more infill midrise towers rather than just a forest of big towers amidst plazas, parking lots and lowrises. because the skyline explodes from a flat, sprawling terrain, it appears contrived... unlike traditional CBDs like NYC, chicago, and SF where the need for tall buildings stem from density issues. and some buildings are just too big for their own good, like heritage plaza... but overall, not bad.

I love how it has multiple skylines... reminds me of a smaller LA or NYC. Definitly would consider moving there someday, it's a really nice city.

9.0/10
