  1. Vantage Med Center: New Highrise at Cambridge and Holcombe

    It’s open. I believe they are still offering 3 months “off”. Which is probably why the 2B / 2B starts at 3K.
  2. I’m sure he’s in an echo chamber. I always marveled at the gargoyles from the W Gray post office when I was a kid. Our city is really a cross cross roads of different influences. Apart from any “signature” building in our city, I can see some easily being swapped in different regions of our country and bet that the majority of people wouldn’t blink twice at the change. For example every Greenway Plaza building could be traded with buildings in greater Los Angeles. Or even the Chase Tower & 3 Allen Center in central Tokyo/Yokohama. I can admire the mix he brings to Houston. If anyone had to bring in the Florida Pandhandle, I’m glad it’s him.
  3. Alltmont Building @ 311 Travis Street

    Name calling is not cool. However, if you make silly statements and ask silly questions, you may get silly answers.
  4. Let’s keep it on topic and civil, thanks.
  5. Australian Developer Planning Three High-Rises for Midtown

    Don’t tell them about SSP. Maybe from now on we just link the renderings and ask swamplot to only report on tree removal?
  6. I’m corn-fused. the beginning of the article mentions the hotel on top of the garage portion, but then mentions it going on top of the building itself.
  7. 40-story High-Rise for Block 98, Behind Hess Tower

    Moved to new thread City of Houston Parking Requirements
  8. The Allen: Allen Pkwy/Gillette Mixed Use 6 acres

    Let’s keep on topic folks.
  9. Looking for info on the original Savoy

    Calling jdbaker or any other resident of the Beaconsfield... 4A is still on the market and I’m extremely curious of what it’s like to live there. Is the lot used for parking? If not where do you park? How are the neighbors? Has the Spire venue kept any of you awake at night? What is the HOA? With the date of the property how well insulated are they? Can you hear every footstep/chat of your neighbor? A little more investigating on my part but the bathrooms and kitchen need to be updated. Wonder if this could be done, because I see it’s been updated a bit since the 80’s. A few fixes here and there and it would be an ideal buy for me.
  10. I was turning onto Westheimer from Augusta and could have sworn the above garage portion was wood. Was a night though. edit: maybe it’s just the wall frame.
  11. Connecting it to the NW transit center is certainly a start.
  12. Capitol Tower by Skanska, formerly Houston Club Building

    Also has destroyed the platinum view of pennzoil from the executive club at the JW Marriott.
  13. The Post Oak: 36-Story High-Rise & Conference Center

    Hopefully never if it’s as beautiful as the hotel.
  14. Medistar to Develop 27-story TMC Health Care Tower

    Do they own the surface lot next door?
