Hello, my name is Elliott and I am a high school student who lives in Houston! Living in Houston my whole life I have not seen really any skyline changes to Houston (a bit sad) except for a few towers on the south side and near the Discovery Green. What I noticed is that Houston is struggling to keep business in downtown due to sprawl of the suburbs, which businesses like Exxon are moving outside to Spring, TX.
In the coming days I will show you all progress of buildings that I propose to Downtown! Hope ya'll will like my proposals and please feel free to comment!
The first tower I propose is the The Houstonian Tower (The faces on the building are suppose to be smooth, I am not too great on Sketch-up)
This tower is a sleek and tall contemporary concept design for downtown. I designed the tower so it could be a step for more modern or regular towers to spread to the north side allowing a new face to the Houston skyline.
Here are different angles and settings of the building with downtown!
hello Elliot, quiet impressive quality. houston's one of my fav citiscapes (as seen from that ondulated park), you should beef up the cbd core. love it, for a moment i thought it was cinema 4d or something other than sketchup.
