the 2nd major business district in the Houston metro deserves its own thread.   Photos from today in the Uptown Galleria area and my favorite the Williams Tower, the tallest building outside a downtown in the USA.  No water in the Waterwall unfortunately today and since it was hot and humid I could have used the cool misting spray. 

New busway stations are present in the Galleria area.

when a suburb and outside of the main downtown has a skyline nicer than 75% of the major cities in the country.   That is the Uptown Galleria area of Houston.  Random shots today including the tallest building outside of a central business district in the USA the 902 foot tall  64 story Williams Tower with its famous waterwall.  It is across the street from the Galleria of Houston mall. 

From Wikipedia about the Williams Tower

""The Williams Tower (originally named the Transco Tower) is a 64-story, 1.4 million square feet (130,000 m2) class A art deco office tower located in the Uptown District of Houston, Texas. The building was designed by New York-based John Burgee Architects with Philip Johnson in association with Houston-based Morris-Aubry Architects (now known as Morris Architects). Construction began in August 1981, and the building was opened in 1983.[2] The tower is among Houston's most visible buildings as the 4th-tallest in Texas, and the 44th-tallest in the United States. The Williams Tower is the tallest building in Houston outside of Downtown Houston,[3] and is the tallest skyscraper in the United States outside of a city's central business district. It has been referred to as the "Empire State Building of the south".""

      This area like most of Houston has lots of construction and development too.  Like the new third building for the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.   Some photos from that area today and Hermman Park. Few interior shots of MFA-H too free museum day courtesy of Shell Oil.  If you are in the area drop by this great museum. 
      Last photos show the model of the MFA-Houston campus with the white building being the new building.
