  1. You're right there are going to be lots of apartments available but in time they will all be filled and isn't it great that there were so many people out. It's actually beginning to feel like a downtown that's alive and not a movie set. Wait till baseball season starts and then its really going to get busy. As more people come down and see all thats going on perhaps will spur the interest in living in such a beautiful setting. Just think the Catalyst and Alexan are still under construction and when these two properties are finished and landscaped how exciting it will be to have so much new development in one quadrant of downtown. The overall dynamics of this new growth will be stunning.

  3. I don't mean to further sidetrack this thread.. but those LEDs are color changeable, to keep with the downtown lighting theme. Note the other blue building lighting.. I'm right there with you on including the whole crown though. I'm not sure why they didn't carry the led lighting down the full sides of the fins, where the mechanical floors are. Ah well.. Aria is looking great. The more it comes along, the more I appreciate how it's style is respectful to the surrounding Market Sqaure neighborhood.

  11. I believe in many spots yes but the tallest u/c or just topped out are: 34stories 32 31 30 And the tallest existing is of course the 42 story city place. So any height limit seems wishy washy. What is irritating is that it seems that even now they are still proposing more towers in the 20-23 range. Instead of making a hundred of these squatters they could have made half the amount at twice the height or at least in the 30s range. It's okay though. Its all coming together nicely and if you've seen it lately the density is looking impressive. Like a little San Diego.

  12. This actually has a thread running on this forum somewhere and I know someone knows where it is. This is part of the master plan for Axelrad's group to create a synergy in this block along with Luigi's, who has to be the luckiest pizza joint owner in Houston, The Station and HCC. I think that Monty and Jeff are doing some of the best urban projects in the city. Bravo to them and I look forward to their next edition over on the rail line on Harrisburg. If only we had more innovative young talent, willing to take the chance to develop more of this type of people oriented projects how much positive vibes could be produced. Keep up the great work and let the party begin

  15. Keep in mind that the plan from the start was once construction on the tower was to commence, they would first finish the remaining portion of the garage. I find it hard to believe they would finish the garage, then once again deconstruct the crane. If they are putting the crane up, then this is moving forward and Bank of America or another large tenant inked a deal.

  19. 700 block of Milam and the 700 block of Travis between Capitol and Rusk will be closed for the crane construction this weekend from 7pm Friday to 5am Monday according to Baker Concrete. This can only mean they are going ahead with the office portion of the build. Great news. I wonder what company made the decision to move into the new building?

  20. Did anyone notice this on the City of Houston website? Has a picture of Regent Square and the article is talking about amending current ordinances to make areas more walkable. It was last updated just last week. http://www.houstontx.gov/planning/Commissions/committee_walkable-places.html

  21. It is just awesome reading this thread and seeing how much has changed in 12 years. This area has totally exploded in growth with new homes on every single block. And yes, here we are, 12 years later, with terrible roads again, especially Crockett. Anyways, I didn't revive this thread just to revive it. Does anyone remember a sketch showing a future expansion of Sawyer St. from Spring St to Washington Ave.? I cannot seem to find it anywhere and I know someone posted it. Maybe @lockmat, @Urbannizer, or @CrockpotandGravel know what I am talking about? It was probably 2 or 3 years ago. This is the closest thing I can find to it, showing a future extension of Summer St., but it's obviously not the right road. Perhaps the expansion was related to some apartment complex to be built... or maybe even Sawyer Yards.

  32. As I have said several times , I think that Ziegler Cooper has done an excellent job of marrying the contemporary glazing and upper level design with the historic base in such a fluid way and the way they have addressed the buildings relationship to Market Square will completely change the feel of this whole;e neighborhood. When it comes alive with people there will be an electricity down here. I can't wait for it to open.

  33. Exactly, and people aren't having to cross a major thoroughfare of 6 lanes of traffic to walk around. The Domain is more of a walkable area like the transformed Bagby St. Look, I think the comparison makes more sense with City Centre than it does with Upper Kirby. Upper Kirby is more of a mish mash of different development while the Domain is more of a master planned shopping district. City Centre is somewhat similar in terms of it being further away from a CBD and it does have the suburban office parks around it, just like the Domain. The difference is that the Domain truly caters to all different types of people in terms of shopping and even the nightlife experience it offers with an entire street full of clubs and bars. KinkaidAlum is right that it is an outdoor mall (which cannot be said for City Centre) with several big box stores that are even part of the walkable environment, but I would disagree that it's upscale. There's so many different types of stores that many of them are similar to what we saw in the Regent Square store catalog, even if it was just for potential retail and not the actual resulting stores. With it's parks, street layout, great mixture of retail/office/residential and just the sheer scale of it, I think the Domain experience is a lot different than anything Houston has to offer at the moment.

  35. So will Mann Eye Institute be one of the tenants in the Phase I - Medical Office Building?

  36. The developer is actively meeting with folks in the neighborhood regarding the project. The hope is, per the developer, to be as transparent as possible to forestall the type of opposition we saw with the Ashby High Rise. Dr. Mann of the Mann Eye Institute owns the three parcels underlying the project, and so he would need a new facility before the other two phases could commence. I know the residential tower is really the star of this attraction, and construction on that is a little bit further off. The initial design details were very preliminary, and a lot could get changed depending on how things shake out over the next couple of years. Most of my details came from the most recent meeting between some folks in the neighborhood and the developer, which happened a little more than a week ago (tip of the cap to Cranky for getting things organized on that front).

  39. The tidbit of info given by the Chron that mentions the architects have something in-development for the Museum District; their website showing renders of a development in the Museum District -- is enough to place it here. Swtsigs post is also reassuring. If this is indeed what's planned by them, I think it's more of "Will this be able to get out of ground anytime soon, if so, w/o being drastically being scaled down?" Interested to know who's behind this. In this render they have a placeholder for The Southmore, which shows this is fairly recent.
