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

^^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?

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.
