  1. High Speed Rail / Texas Triangle

    Why so vague on the location? I thought it was going to be built at the Northwest Mall site.
  2. Camden Conte: 21-Stories x2 (2 Phases) - Downtown

    One approach to cheaper housing downtown would be to cut back on amenities like pools, gyms, dedicated parking garages, etc. If someone is looking to live downtown cheaply, they would probably be willing to forgo some of these. Downtown is a central transit hub between rail and bus, so I can't imagine a car is a necessity.

    Looks like the cheapest floor plan at the Hamilton is $1455 for 760 sq feet.
  4. Camden Conte: 21-Stories x2 (2 Phases) - Downtown

    i guess the idea was to get someone living downtown, anyone really. They've succeeded in that they've tapped into a demand for downtown living. I'm not saying they need section 8 housing, but something affordable to working class families would be nice. Especially since there are still so many undeveloped lots downtown, especially north of the ball park and south of the GRB.

    How is it the downtown living initiative managed to avoid providing affordable housing? Isn't this tax payer supported?
  6. 40-story High-Rise for Block 98, Behind Hess Tower

    Thanks for doing the math!
  7. 40-story High-Rise for Block 98, Behind Hess Tower

    I guess the downtown living initiative is still in effect. I would have thought they reached the 5000 unit target by now. Has it been extended?
  8. Camden Conte: 21-Stories x2 (2 Phases) - Downtown

    Is phase 1 the one right next to Root square or the other block?

    Happy Saturday morning!!!
  10. Buffalo Bayou Master Plan

    This will be the more daunting, yet exciting phase of the Buffalo Bayou master plan. It will likely involve the transition of numerous abandoned industrial sites into parks and new ecosystems/habitats. Hopefully they haven't wasted any time acquiring properties along the Bayous East end. Still, this is probably a 20+ year endeavor.
  11. My only issue with this project is creating a signature boulevard that in several places fronts a giant parking lot, unless there are plans to redevelop the strip centers into BLVD Place style developments.
  12. Melrose Building to be Redeveloped into a Le Meridien

    MESS YOU UP!!!
  13. Lance Zierlein leaving KBME 790's Morning Show

    Does this mean Tony the Hatchet Man Valentine will be leaving also?
  14. Catalyst: New 28-Story Residential High-Rise for Downtown

    Here's Ubrannizer's post from when they broke ground, over 2 1/2 years ago!!!
  15. I personally think the retail will come downtown, but like the residential boom it's going to take incentives to retailers to make it economically feasible. Downtown is too under served in this regard for there not to be an uptick at some point, especially as new residential units come online.
