  1. Has the project officially started? Seems to be a lot of activity around the site.
  2. Don't forget there are plans to re-route 45 and remove the portion separating this area from downtown. Downtown is eventually going to extend to this area so they are probably thinking about what is going to happen. Plus, if Regent Square ever happens I'm thinking we will start to hear some kind of proposal to add mass transit up Allen Parkway connecting it to downtown.
  3. Looks like Dallas might be getting a Norman Foster Skyscraper... http://www.dallasnews.com/business/real-estate/2017/03/24/round-skyscraper-famed-architect-remake-dallas-skyline
  4. You sure about that? UH has already blocked a potential partnership with South Texas College of Law and Texas A&M. Texas A&M responded with blocking a northwest expansion plan by UH stating that it was too close to THEIR turf. This kind of thing happens all the time. The University of Houston sits in a county that has a larger population than 25 states and it does view itself as a potential UCLA caliber school of the Houston region. So, you bet they are going to fight to protect their vision because that's what ALL Texas schools already do. Texas A&M is NOT proposing to build a new campus 2 miles from UT-Austin just because the population growth of the the city of Austin warrants it. Some of your logic in this thread is troublesome.
  5. ...and Regent Square stands back and watches everything develop around them.
  6. The Texas Senate hearings did not go well for the University of Texas.. $450 million of Texas tax payer's money for 300 acres of an Environmentally Unsound piece of land for a secret project with no plans or direction. Watch it here:
  7. An Oklahoma fan, on another board, posted I'm in Houston, in the galleria area- does Houston have mass transit to NRG for the game tomorrow. Well, you could have connected had they "actually" built the University and Uptown lines that were voted on and approved a decade ago...freakin geniuses that run Houston.
  8. If uptown doesn't want the light rails (since they've rejected it multiple times), I say place the light rail down Montrose and Washington. They will have the density to justify it. Possibly look to do something up Allen Parkway/Kirby and segment the inner city that way. let uptown remain the continuous parking lot that it desperately wants to remain.

  10. I think it is safe to say that Regent Square is officially dead. RIP (2007-2016)
  11. Absolutely! Getting into the Big 12, alone, will increase our Athletic revenue to the $30+ million range. We currently make about $2 million in the American Athletic Conference. The basketball renovation will have a strong ROI. If you've been following, UH is one of the heavy favorites to get the 2 or 4 program invite. Other heavy favorites include University of Cincinnati and BYU but most are starting the feel that BYU's culture, and high demands, will not be a fit for the Big 12. Plus there is the fact that No other Power conference, under any circumstances, would ever take BYU. the same can not be said for the University of Houston so look for the Big 12 to invite UH sooner than later.
  12. Looks like they are trying to get retailers interested in this project to justify its construction. Not sure how far along they are.
  13. Regent Square? or part of that new Museum District development? After all, the MD is one of the top tourist destinations in the city
  14. I don't have any pictures but there were trucks and equipment all over the site. Looks as if they were doing soil test and early prep work but something was definitely happening there today!
