This is another photo taken by KevinFromTexas.  The Aloft is the U/C tower with the Luffing crane.  The tower behind it with the two tower cranes is the new University of Texas HQ.

Here's another view looking down 7th St.  The U/C project on the left edge of the photo is the University of Texas System HQ.  This is another excellent photo taken by 427MM at SSP.

Here's another view taken from the construction webcam just now.  This project is topped out, and that busy lighted street on the right is 6th St.  It's closed to traffic on weekend nights.

In this excellent Flatiron photo you can see how the Aloft Hotel and Element Hotel are differentiated by their facades.

This hotel is scheduled to open this summer along with the Fairmont.  Between just these the two hotels, around 1,500 rooms will be added to the downtown inventory.  Here's the view form Congress Ave:

This hotel officially opens July 27, and is following the trend of other big hotels with awesome street level interaction.

You can rent a room here beginning next week, so I marked it complete in the thread title.  Here are some photos taken earlier this month by Syndic at SSP showing the preparations for the opening.
