Wow. I didn't notice all these typos until now. Well, I was understood, nevertheless.


That area, my second favorite area downtown, is really going to be very beautiful (not that is isn't already) and active with pedestrian traffic in the next two years, may be 3.

Here is another one, Jack. I know you like pictures that give perspective of how it looks from a distance, so if there is any other types of pictures you would like to see, let me know.

Thanks, Fryguy! Much appreciated.

Any time photo you take and share is appreciated. Next time you're around the Pearl (or that direction general) a shot of Thompson would be good. Or from the Trinity/Alamo Stadium area.

The corner of the parking lot seems like a good spot.

Anyone know what's going on with this project? It's been nearly a month since they laid new floor. Very odd. It's been dead for a few days, with handful to no workers on site, at least when I passed by last week and this past Monday morning.

I'm not sure what you're talking about. They added rebar for the next floor pour a few days ago and there are several workers visible on the web cam right now. The web cam will actually need to be adjusted soon because the top of the building is starting to go outside the web cam's view.

OK, but I said they added rebar for the next floor. I counted 19 people visible at one time on the webcam this morning. They're there... so there. Don't worry... things are happening.

I count 15 workers at 10:34 a.m. and five of them are working on the forms for the core.

Nah. The real challenge is counting the workers at the Thompson Arts site.

Delay related to a structural connection connecting the tower crane to the building for stability. Not sure why it has taken so long.

Camera angle has changed, and boy is it cool. I cannot wait to see it at night. It's a great view.

And you can see several other construction projects in the background... including Thompson.

New crane?

Hey everyone! Does anyone know what the crane you see behind the Milam building is for?
