If the Hess Tower and Main Place could switch places, Main Place would look much more prominent.

I've done it a few times, but at most it was only 3, but don't you hate it when a member posts in all of their city's threads at the same time and bumps up several projects. Anyways.

For some strange reason every time I look at this building I'm reminded of the cent symbol. I don't know why.

I just can't believe show short a 630 ft. building looks in Houston. That's a good thing though.
