Reminds of the BBVA Compass tower in the Galleria. It's a nice design. Looks like the top will light up, can't wait to see more.

I can't believe this! The Houston Chronicle announced that the Demolition of the Macy's building won't be public

Looks like they should release the final rendering soon since it's already shown in the background. The one I really want to see is the one they got proposed for the Museum District.

I've wondered about that, too, but there are lots of other burger joints in town that seem to be filling the bill. Perhaps, if a lot become available on FM 1960 under one of the runways to IAH, In 'n' Out will snap it up.

It looks like they are planning a second building too.

Here is the link to the map posted by Urbannizer:
http://downtownhouston.org/site_medi...FOR_UPLOAD.pdf

Also... While reviewing the map, I am trying to differentiate the definition between "Planned" and "Potential". However, the way I am interpreting, it seems projects can be under either heading. Can anyone elaborate?

I'm not sure if there is any differentiation between "planned" and "potential". As it is, the Marriott Marquis is not "under construction". Yet.
