Williams is not the only tall one with top-level scaffolding issues

CENTERPOINT ENERGY TOWER DOWNTOWN 

1111 Louisiana St, Houston, TX 77002 Center Point Energy HQ in Downtown Houston
Something is up inside the CenterPoint hole

View from Fannin - Historic Main Building 
Longshot from the banks of Buffalo Bayou (or maybe it was from the Rosemont foot bridge)
Vaulted roof of Federal Reserve Bank on Allen Parkway with protrusions in the foreground

WILLIAMS TOWER REPAIRS AROUND 
THE ROTATING BEACON 




NOT TOO LONG AGO THE BOFA CENTER 
ALSO NEEDED CROWN RESTORATION WORK 


Facelift prep: Frontal view of  BofA top a couple of years ago   
Old and Glorious: City Hall and Bank of America 

Permanent and transitory accoutrements atop 
the Bank of America Center in 2014

Skyscraper tip with spikes, cable-tethered liftable sky bridge,
and bi-lateral scaffolding 
That was then, before the Downtown building frenzy,
when the Bayou banks were verdant and the skyline was craneless and pristine
