Talked to people overlooking this development. "Phase one" is complete. Park/plaza construction will be coming soon.

 

Residences of Hardy Yards project costs $58,000,000. Don't remember if we knew that figure already.

I'm impressed at their aim, although I wonder if they're just being stolen. When the signs first debuted, half of the letters were gone within a week.

Though the letters stolen can be arranged to spell "RAD", I can assure you it is no such thing to be stolen.

Amateurs. They could've left the letters in place but rearranged them, instead of stealing them. I look forward to a small army of drunken, juvenile anagram fans doing their part to ensure that passersby are welcomed to "DAY RASH DRY".

As stated by someone earlier, the fence is now down. Perhaps the markers are for roads... looks very similar to the outline here.

It's pretty impressive how far this has come in one year considering it's a 55 acre site that previously had no city utilities or other infrastructure.

Massive purchase by UHD as it expands its campus downtown. How close is this to the Hardy Yards development?

Looks to be right across Burnett Station from Hardy Yards, at the Daly Street Park and Ride lot.

 

"Combined with two adjacent parcels of land the school already owns, the 17-acre tract will give it control of 27 contiguous acres bordered by White Oak Bayou to the west, North Main to the east, the Union Pacific railroad tracks to the north and the existing UHD campus to the south."

I wasn't 100% sure this was the land they were talking about, but wow this school is growing big time. Possibly a future Div 3?

Good to see them adding the infrastructure and landscaping during the downturn.

curvy streets, narrow sidewalks and grass strips.

 

I appreciate the bump-outs though, but ultimately the buildings will determine just how suburban this ends up seeming.

Yep, I am very bummed that they continue to build narrow sidewalks with the grass strips. Especially so close to downtown.

Looking at the most recent concept drawings, you have to have some sort of curve to the E/W streets to use the land appropriately.  We need an elevated picture of the new construction infrastructure to see if it is matching this relatively dense concept.

 

I agree though that those narrow sidewalks are awful anywhere they're expecting pedestrian traffic.  Only advantage of them is a place for your dog to pee.

I don't mind the grass strip if it has those orderly-looking trees planted in it. In five or so years, as they get larger, they will provide a far more valuable thing: shade for both the sidewalk and the street, something that cannot be understated in its importance during a Houston summer.
