Central Park Tower is mostly for the rich, in New York City Central Park residential areas are owned by really wealthy people. however, this will mostly counter as a "tourist attraction" New York City is currently desperate to stay as the US's lead tourist city. for example, Dallas currently has a park project which will be 2x or 3x times the size of central park and was blocked until recently, with private citizens across Texas sponsoring it's development.Skyscrapers are no where to be found in the US except those built in 1970s & 1980s. An average man with an average wage can not afford to live in one.
Houston was in fact a fast growing community, constantly adding newer housing developments, bringing in new jobs etc. from 2003-2015, Houston was Texas's fastest growing city, however when Hurricane Harvey hit, the city slowed down + coronavirus pandemic, has significantly slowed the economy. and so far Houston has had 3 major oil companies file for bankruptcy which will hit their economy dramatically, since the Houston economy is based on around oil giants.if Houston's economy rely on 40% from the oil industry, how come can they grow to be such a size? Monopolizing on 1 basic industry will sometimes, slow and prevent from truth economic growth.
to answer your first your question, Dallas-Fort Worth Area very easily, in some aspects they say Dallas will before Houston at this rate. Dallas has already added, 1.3 million people into the area with another 1.3 being added in the next 5-9 years, possibly sooner. sorry to bust the Houstonian's pride but Dallas said they would surpass Houston by 2 million (Dallas would have 9 million, Houston at 7 million) by 2029 .which city do you overall think will surpass Chicago if possible, if Houston proves to incapable of proving that point? also what are your personal views of why you dislike Houston if you don't mind me asking?
what are some things that Houston has done to even remotely tried to move away from the oil industry if so? which city between Houston & Chicago have a better transportation?to answer your first your question, Dallas-Fort Worth Area very easily, in some aspects they say Dallas will before Houston at this rate.

to answer your 2nd question here are the reasons I don't like Houston
~lack of tourism, the skyline isn't as spectacular
~Community is cocky, they claim to want to help out local businesses but are quick to throw them under the bus
~claims to have a diverse community that they support, but in fact most don't support their diverse "neighbors" again throwing them under the bus, and in some parts of Houston the diversity % has dropped because of that.
~the good ole' pride, having the attitude Texas and Texans are better then everyone else
