  1. Images of Old Houston

    Wow, so much stuff gone now. The foreground across the Bayou appears to be what is now the Wortham Center and Sesquicentennial Park. That would be Preston street bridge. Possibly taken from the roof of the Tennison Hotel? The Bayou was seriously concreted back then. Guess they got tired of all the flooding.
  2. Market Square Tower: 40-Story High-Rise for Downtown

    Noticed the CVS sign is up. Not sure how long it's been up.
  3. 6-story school downtown

    Good call, I never thought of it being a no longer existent building.
  4. 6-story school downtown

    Trying to find a good thread for this image. In this picture you can see Annunciation Church, Union Station and I think the Anderson Clayton building. Not sure what neighborhood that is in the foreground. I'm guessing Quality Hill.
  5. New Garage with Retail Next to Lyric Center

    It's the Ballet center made transparent.
  6. That appears to be the third option. But what's the purpose of the structure at 610 and Hempstead?
  7. Minute Maid Park Renovations

    The Rockies have a team HOF and need a new building for it? They've only been around for 15 years.
  8. Buffalo Bayou Master Plan

    It wouldn't have to be relocated to dig the North Channel specifically, but what's the point of doing all this development right next to the Harris County Jail?
  9. Buffalo Bayou Master Plan

    Is this the 'Alcatraz' project? They would have to relocate the Harris County lockup facility, which I think is the bigger project compared to digging a new connector canal.
  10. High Speed Rail / Texas Triangle

    Why so vague on the location? I thought it was going to be built at the Northwest Mall site.
  11. 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.
  12. Camden Conte: 21-Stories x2 (2 Phases) - Downtown

    Looks like the cheapest floor plan at the Hamilton is $1455 for 760 sq feet.
  13. 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?
  15. 40-story High-Rise for Block 98, Behind Hess Tower

    Thanks for doing the math!
