  1. 1717 Bissonnet - Ashby highrise.

    There might be a newer rendering, but 2014 seems recent enough for it to be relavant This doesn't seem that much taller than the high rises that have gone up since in the area
  2. 6-story school downtown

    From that picture, it looked like the school had two other, older, buildings for expansion at one point. So when they built the new building, they had to have made the conscious decision to preserve that middle building the first time. This makes me more able to believe them saying that the middle building was beyond repair, though I don't understand why the new building had to look so much like a self storage center
  3. I didn't realize that it was open for move in
  4. KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    I feel like alternatives 1 and 2 do the most to connect downtown (both east and not east) together. Also - there's a railroad museum?
  5. HEB - Upper Kirby

    As long as the HEB is more than just a sea of asphalt with a box store, a grocery store across the street will probably be a huge draw for sales in the Giorgetti - walk to the store!
  6. Holiday / Days / Heaven On Earth Inn (801 Calhoun)

    That show would make huge ratings too. Especially if the people on the show had to pay for the condo space (like $50k or something), I could see that making money
  7. Frank's Backyard @ 413 Travis Street

    Worst part of Austin is line culture. Still haven't seen that here (except for the Breakfask Klub)
  8. 1114 Texas Street to Become Hyatt Place Hotel

    They were having the same argument we were on how big that Alley is and whether you could get a dumpster through it
  9. It's a different market, but the Skyhouse units that face Houston House rent for significantly less than the ones facing all the skyscrapers
  10. Camden Conte: 21-Stories x2 (2 Phases) - Downtown

    Yes it is - though I suspect the old days inn isn't anymore
  11. SkyHouse River Oaks

    Nationally, there are 14 Skyhouses. 5 have a pizza restaurant; 5 have vacant GFR; 2 have grocery stores, and only one has a coffee shop. There's a couple non- pizza restaurants as well. Fun fact: Skyhouse Orlando has a Your Pie in the same corner unit as Skyhouse Houston
  12. Camden Conte: 21-Stories x2 (2 Phases) - Downtown

    Warning: they currently are renovating, so they have free mandatory valet parking (or an offsite garage) and the pool is closed. But it is a good deal
  13. Camden Conte: 21-Stories x2 (2 Phases) - Downtown

    Case in point: Houston House is now below $1000 for pretty much all the 1 bedroom floor plans
  14. Camden Conte: 21-Stories x2 (2 Phases) - Downtown

    I found the DLI info. Here are the requirements: "Participating developers will be expected to preserve or replace streetscapes to a level equivalent to or exceeding the existing upgraded level." "Only residential projects generating ten (10) or more new dwelling units will be considered; this includes adaptive reuse of existing buildings." "The project is designed to support an enhanced pedestrian environment in accordance with criteria specified in the Guidelines." "Any approved agreement shall terminate if project does not commence construction within one year or obtain Certificate of Occupancy within three years of approval of agreement by HDMD or DRA board. " There's no affordable housing requirement. There's also no GFR requirement, which I though was required
  15. Camden Conte: 21-Stories x2 (2 Phases) - Downtown

    Block 334 is ~$1600/mo for a one bedroom
