  4. Having done financial modeling for a living at one point in my life, I'll chime in briefly. A developer's model backs into the highest dollar amount that they're willing to pay for the land. If a developer decides to take a haircut on a development in order to provide a public good, then they won't be able to pay as much for the land. They'd get outbid by a profit-maximizing developer. Also, people that specialize in multifamily typically are hesitant to venture into retail. Its a totally different business model with its own market dynamics and cost structure. If the retail rents that

  9. The McDonalds is officially closed. If you need a burger in the north Post Oak area... God help you. You will have to schlep down to the Jack in the Box on San Felipe. Wah waaaah.

  10. Wow is all I can say. I live down the street from this house and I have to say, it is just about the ONLY house on the street that does NOT fit in w/ the surrounding houses. Most of the houses on the blockface are large and just about every house across the street is a two story - in fact one of them is a 3-story uber-house that must be at least 3,500 square fee. Not to mention that it is right next-door to a hideous apartment building, and I would LOVE to see this house remodeled, as would everyone on our street. We used to call it the Haloween house because the previous owner/tenants p

  11. I think the Nazi and fascist comparisons began in this thread a very long time ago. In fact, the HAHC has now eclipsed passe Nazi references. What we need here is a term to describe capricious and arbitrary rulings, as HAHC just made a ruling, not on the rules in the ordinance, but rather based on "complaints from the neighborhood". Ironically, these complaints were of HAHC's own rulings.

  12. Wow. Just, wow. So Council approves an ordinance that basically requires camelbacks. HAHC finds camelbacks distasteful, and refuses to approve. Message: only buy a property with intent to renovate if you don't plan to increase square footage. Good luck with that.

  13. What makes you think Regent Square is going to fail or only be one tower? Sure, progress has been slow, but everything I have heard leads me to believe that the Boston-based company is in it for the long haul and that they aren't going to sell land that they have owned for decades so that an ugly parking garage can be built for the Buffalo Bayou. Additionally, why would you want a massive ten story garage hulking over a beautiful new park space? There are plenty of garages downtown that will allow one to access the park. Additionally, there will be street parking in abundance. And, the major
