Compared to the interior of his last couple projects, this is fantastic. Have to look at it through a Randall Davis lens.

It was for heating/cooling purposes.  There was concern about how much power/HVAC capacity would be needed to keep the building cool in the summer.

 

It's very unfortunate. Arebella is 70% sold and Randy's giving every real estate agent who sells the remaining units a Telsa Model 3. I'm sure he could have found a different solution regarding the HVAC issue.

Definitely breaks the 400 foot mark considering that Five Post Oak is 389 feet and this is quite a bit taller.

The glass in the "V" portion along the side is curved. Gives a very cool visual affect when you drive by.

Looks like a drone shot right at the old Houston Post site.

Williams Tower looks lonely standing amid all of those mid-rises.  Time to add taller towers in this area.

Give it 10 years and there will be.

The vacant lot across from Arabella has been paved with a parking lot. I'm thinking this is a temporary lot for construction workers, since they were parking on the street north of Harris County Annex 85 (street is in the foreground in the photo), but recently the street was posted as a no parking zone and one side is now a tow-away zone.

 

The field across from Skyhouse has been graded, but there is no evidence of paving right now. There is no construction activity today due to the muddy conditions.

I noticed that the parking lot across from Arabella is not being used, so I walked to the lot to investigate. It turns out this lot is for the Harris County offices at 2221-2223 West Loop South. The District Attorney is moving in due to Harvey damage at their normal location. (Other Harris County functions have already moved in, mostly filling the parking garage.)

 

The land across from Skyhouse now has an aggregate base and is being readied for paving.

 

I don't know how long the District Attorney will be here, I'm thinking 6-12 months. So there will be no development of the parking lot property as long as Harris County DA is here. There is no activity at the newly cleared lot on Westcreek across from the Wilshire (and directly east of Harris County), so new development on that property could begin at any time.
