I don't get it.

Revolve around what? One skyline?

Last time I checked, Houston had a large downtown with a large Skyline. 10 top skylines in the country.

Also, we have Uptown, At 23.6 million square feet (2,193,000 m≤) of office space, the Uptown District is the 17th-largest business district in the United States, comparable in size to the downtowns of Denver, and Pittsburgh. (Wikipedia)



In addition, even the Texas Medical Center has it's own skyline.



I don't think Houston needs 4 or 6 story apartment buildings to revolve from.

In an effort to please everyone we might just end up displeasing those who are already content. I would really hate to see Houston crash trying to be something it isn't.

The uptown buildings are usually middle of the road but look taller because they are so spaced out. That is unless they are near the Williams Tower. most things near that thing looks like dwarfs.
