  1. The Allen: Allen Pkwy/Gillette Mixed Use 6 acres

    ...And one the the greatest urban parks in the nation, within walking distance to the CBD and connected via pedestrian bridge. Try to look at the big picture. Screw walkability anyway. This is a car centric city and will continue to be well after you're dead and buried. This is the best project that could ever be built on that spot - in the here and now. I like that it will expand the downtown skyline to the west. There is already a clump of towers (one 40 stories) at Montrose and Allen Pkwy. This project will go a long way connecting it with the CBD.
  2. ASTROS WORLD SERIES VICTORY

    Waiting for this my whole life. Thank you God.
  3. Would that be the left or the right?
  4. Yes, Houston needs more flat roofs. Slants are so slanty.
  5. Health Care

    That is because they can't repeal Obamacare.
  6. Health Care

    Thanks to Obama for putting it in motion. Trump hasn't had time to screw it up yet, but he's trying.

  8. 3300 Main by PM Realty Group: 336-unit high-rise

    ...Unless you don't consider GFR an to be an 'improvement'. Some outsiders are more impressed with looking at big skylines than they are with being able to walk to Starbucks. I guess it depends on if you are trying to please the 1% who will live and visit the area or the 99% that will just drive by it on their way to go to somewhere else. My dream of one day seeing the Downtown skyline connected to the TMC skyline, through Midtown will take decades to achieve (if ever). Anything that helps that happen is an exciting idea to me. Another little structure in Midtown doesn't do anything to expand the skyline. Maybe if I lived in Midtown right now and were someone who might benefit from walking to retail (a dying concept, internet deliveries are the future) or Midtown already had a decent skyline, I might see it your way. I don't know if this rendering is accurate, but it looks like most of us are going to get what we want on that spot. It looks like a high rise with some kind of GFR.

    I can see how living in a walkable urban neighborhood would be an attractive feature, especially to those who live in a city that doesn't have a lot of them - but the whole idea of impressing guest, as if that's a good reason to do anything, makes me want to hurl. Hopefully we'll all get what we want, but seeing the 369' on this thread is the only thing that makes this project interesting to me.
