Despite being short, the Niels Esperson building is one of the greatest skyscrapers in the entire south. The opposite of the Enron building.

I think the exact opposite...The Enron building is a architectural Masterpiece...

Well I agree with both of you. The Esperson is a beautiful representation of its period and so are the Enron buildings. Two beautiful buildings that tell a story

I think so too.
Those pics really do prove how much more dense Houston is than Dallas.

whats with the random picks of areas near the wetlands north of Atascocita. That is like me picking an area of the tRinity watershed and bragging about how low dense Dallas as a whole is.

You are gloating over a fringe area near protected wetlands

Yeah picking a random neighborhood shows nothing of the density of a city. There are LOTS of parts of Dallas that would not look dense whatsoever

I really didn't get the point. Maybe I missed a previous conversation

No no no I was agreeing with you. Its unfair to make a comment about those areas showing a lack of density in Houston because its just a random neighborhood

The first pic was Kingwood, and the second was west Houston.

What exactly are you arguing here? R1070 said he thought those pics were a good example of how much denser Houston was than Dallas. I'm guessing he's referring to the suburban sprawl of both areas. I just posted them as examples of how Houston looks like Florida.

Actually it was total sarcasm.
Houston does remind me of Florida though.
