Chron scaffolding is not world class

KTRK-13's Miya Shay blogs about the eyesore that just won't go away at 801 Texas Avenue:

If you've walked by the Houston Chronicle's building downtown in the last.. oh.. FIVE years, chances are you've either seen or had to duck through some sort of scaffolding. It seems like the City of Houston is getting a bit frustrated with the lack of progress to repair the Chron's building facade.

The city's Public Works director says the project has sped up noticeably recently.

Strange, but we hadn't noticed. And apparently Miya Shay hasn't either.

Surely Hearst could move this project along, if only in the interest of projecting a world-class facade to the rest of downtown!
