  1. Future Of The Astrodome

    Houston, we have a landmark. https://www.chron.com/news/politics/houston/article/Harris-County-Commissioners-Court-OKs-105M-plan-12610107.php
  2. Buy out Target and expand the existing. They would have to pay way above market for the land though since they are locked in. Unless they worked out some sort of deal with Target a few years ago.
  3. Australian Developer Planning Three High-Rises for Midtown

    Make it an at-grade boulevard, with oak trees similar to Main Street through Hermann Park.
  4. 40-story High-Rise for Block 98, Behind Hess Tower

    "Be the change you want to see in the world." - Mother Teresa
  5. 40-story High-Rise for Block 98, Behind Hess Tower

    Whoa you're back!
  6. 40-story High-Rise for Block 98, Behind Hess Tower

    More idea than thing at this point. My understanding is they are working with the city on it and may have bought the site last year?
  7. 40-story High-Rise for Block 98, Behind Hess Tower

    And then after this, the PM Realty building in Midtown. And then maybe just maybe Museo Plaza? Further in the distance - Midway residential tower at Sakowitz garage, Hines office at Chron site.
  8. 40-story High-Rise for Block 98, Behind Hess Tower

    Are we sure this wasn't just a couple of HAIFers who just couldn't wait? My money's on Monarch, with technical advice from Purdue.
  9. 1114 Texas Street to Become Hyatt Place Hotel

    To move big heavy or dirty stuff that for many reasons would be impractical to move in a normal elevator.
  10. Camden Conte: 21-Stories x2 (2 Phases) - Downtown

    This is at the base of major office towers while Greenstreet is separated from office towers by a row of parking garages. Greenstreet also has the homeless all around, this doesn't. It's really a big difference.
  11. Camden Conte: 21-Stories x2 (2 Phases) - Downtown

    Actually I'm thinking they'll stay with the beige brick and hope it comes back in vogue.
  12. Midtown Sears

    Haha, ok. I've found it doesn't come across as well in print as out loud.
  13. Midtown Sears

    It's meaningless. The people who think of these names have no control over anything. There is no "we" who is going to put jobs or innovation anywhere. It's just a ploy to try to appeal to tech companies and sell the city. We've already got more innovation than most countries could ever dream of. There is innovation going on right now in the energy corridor and scattered office campuses that has the power to shift the world economy and alter the geopolitical balance of power. But those people don't need catch words like "innovation."
  14. I would imagine there is a desire to "Keep Montrose Weird." Public enhancements translates into higher rents, and that drives out the independently owned businesses and replaces them with chains. All fine and good for Uptown but Montrose is not trying to be a high end shopping district.
