Here's yet another example of why Houston needs more office space downtown.

"...Flexon told the Houston Business Journal that Dynegy plans to option a second floor at its 601 Travis St. headquarters by the end of the year and likely add about 50 local jobs or so within six months..."

No I don't believe so. Uptown skylive has the one thing the Energy Corridor will never have.... Transco Tower and the area will keep building. Same for TMC, it will keep buiilding especially with the State of Texas accepting the affordable Health Care Act.
