  1. 1300 Capitol Street---New HSPVA campus

    Brick is good. better than synthetic stucco. but I am sick of beige. would a reddish or brown brick been so shocking to the senses of the 2010’s Houstonian that it would have caused mass revolt? Are we all just beige now?
  2. 1803 Pease

    The lot South of Marlow is parking for the law school, no? Isn’t it owned by the law school? Hmmmmm..... I always thought that it was but I could be completely wrong.
  3. Market Square Tower: 40-Story High-Rise for Downtown

    I am surprised that they didn’t do the “produce thing”....... CVS is buying one of the health insurers and their pitch to wall street includes that they will use their retail stores as “neighborhood health centers”..... when I heard that, I immediately thought of this store’s concept.......
  4. This surprises me. ”5 star” hotels are “typically” not “convention hotels” ( yes, a lot of quotes)..... convention hotels attract the typical mid-level manager/worker ...... not the luxury expense budget crowd. And, this hotel is “far” from many of the office towers on the other side of town. Very curious ........

    Sadly, at least on United, nobody will be flying a 747 anymore
  6. IF you are currently under 30 years old, you just might see that in your lifetime. If you are over 50, probably not. Either way, it is a great vision.
  7. 723 Main Street to Become an AC Hotel By Marriott

    This sounds really great! i think that I will book a room there one night after they open. I like furniture that floats. Of course, this being Houston, they may have chosen other words.
  8. Minute Maid Park Renovations

    I did too.
  9. Downtown could used a place like this too! Kinda cool looking, IMO.
  10. Parking Garage to be built next to the Le Meridian

    How is the basic quality of life different in those cities?
  11. Parking Garage to be built next to the Le Meridian

    Are Zurich, London, Vienna, and NYC spending money on light rail only for quality of life?
  12. 1111 Rusk: Texaco Building Renovation

    This sounds like a great place for corporate events and lawyers/bankers and maybe even the 25-year wedding anniversary!
  13. Parking Garage to be built next to the Le Meridian

    I would like to understand: are all cities with light rail networks thinking wrong headed?
  14. Australian Developer Planning Three High-Rises for Midtown

    Cranes, cranes and more cranes!
  15. 40-story High-Rise for Block 98, Behind Hess Tower

    With all those markups on the ground, it would be pretty funny if they figured out that it wouldn’t fit! That would be an “ oh flurf” moment.
