Drone’s camera gives latest view of Houston football stadium construction

New Houston Stadium

The University of Houston is in the process of building a brand new home for the football program. Construction started in December 2012 and is scheduled for completion in time for the 2014 season. The $120 million construction still has a way to go before being ready to host a capacity crowd of 40,000 but fans itching to get an early look at the new venue have technology to thank for a unique look.

A drone camera operated by Skyhawk┬áVideos takes to the air to show an overhead view of the football stadium’s construction site, showing off the aerial view form an angle just outside the stadium. You can get a sense of how the stadium fits in on the outskirts of the city of Houston, with a skyline view off in the distance. You also get a sense of the surrounding area around football stadium.

Skyhawk Videos have uploaded a number of videos focusing on aerial shots around Houston, and they have been tracking the progress of the construction of Houston’s new football stadium. This is the third video in their YouTube history. Here is a look from October 2013 and another from December 2013.
