^^^^Nice....just imagine all those scrapers in downtown, but this is what makes Houston unique in a sense that scrapers can be found all over the city!!!!

That'd be some wicked shit to see an HPD or news station helicopter land on the unused helipad a top the Chase Tower.

^ HOLY SHIT!

^^Thats a great picture, it really shows all the great highrises and shows how much potential there is, with all the vacant land around downtown. The density takes a nosedive right outside the CBD. Is there any major condo construction around downtown?

Houston's Medical Center (largest in the world):

There was a similar photo floating around the internet of Austin like that. It showed downtown from the south looking over the river with the new police helicopter flying over downtown. I saved it, but that hard drive bit the dust, and I haven't been able to find the photo again since. I really regret it. It was perfect, like frame it and hang it good.

Houston has some stunning skyscrapers but it's skyline for me it isn't the 3rd one in the US , I do like Minneapolis more

Yeah, its funny here Dallas and FW, both have big medical districts, all the hospitals congregate along with medical office buildings.
