  1. One Market Square: Proposed Office Tower for Block 43

    One thing is that Calpine Center is pretty big. For some reason, it's just forgettable.
  2. Boxer Property Purchases St Joseph Professional Building

    Will it be, dare I say it? Glass?
  3. I actually think in absolute terms it's a mess.
  4. Frank Lloyd Wright

    I'm from Pasadena. My grandfather worked in the Bank One Building in the center of the city. Now it's crumbling. There's a topic somewhere on HAIF specifically about it. But it was built by the firm McKie and Kamrath. Karl Kamrath knew Frank Loyd Wright and was one of his adherents. The building has a lot of features that remind one of FLW. I'm biased but I think the building is great looking and I find it sad that the tower has fallen into such disrepair.
  5. Australian Developer Planning Three High-Rises for Midtown

    Are we gonna...merge?
  6. Park West Apartments

    It's a cruise liner.
  7. When Did the Cinema in Post Oak Mall close?

    I went to A&M in '08 through '11 and didn't know there ever had been one in the mall.
  8. Holiday / Days / Heaven On Earth Inn (801 Calhoun)

    I like it as is actually. And I'd rather it stay derelict and graffiti bespected than destroyed. It should be turned into a hotel. It would look clean with new glass and light fixtures.
  9. Camden Conte: 21-Stories x2 (2 Phases) - Downtown

    They must be pretty damned big, then.
  10. Holiday / Days / Heaven On Earth Inn (801 Calhoun)

    I just jumped up and touched my ceiling pretty easily and I'm comfortable here.
  11. Requesting New Forum in Houston Neighborhoods Section

    I agree that creating a 3rd Ward forum would be appropriate.
  12. HISD Building on Richmond

    So, there's two? An old one and a new one? There is an older complex on Richmond?
  13. HISD Building on Richmond

    Hattie Mae is on West 18th and Mangum. I just drove by it.
  14. Australian Developer Planning Three High-Rises for Midtown

    Okay, I was under the impression there were two Caydon. A beige affair and another facing it. Then there was news of these two towers connected by a sort of promenade. Does that bring it to four? Or does one tower cross over.
  15. Redevelopment of SW corner of 34th and Ella

    As I've said many times, it's probably my favorite joint so I'm sharing some new rendering of Pop and Pan on here.
