    I think everything is being built in at least two phases. The retail pavilion and Hotel/condo tower are phase one. The rest of the midrises are future phases.

    It was a great experience visiting the park, I am excited for the Land Bridge and further improvements. Somewhat off topic but I only wish that Uptown had a smaller city park within as well as bordering Memorial Park. Great addition to Memorial Park though, I feel that this is now the heart of the park so to speak.

    Looks fantastic. There are actual sidewalks on the other side of the bridge! Big improvements here.

    They will be present as long as they meet demand and highest, best use.

    @Avossos Funny you should mention that. I was thinking of Stanley Park while I was there, and that great restaurant. Memorial Park would benefit from such a place. Good thought. @cloud713 those stubs are just a creative change in direction of the walk and provide a resting space that’s out of the traffic path, so to speak. It’s a cool effect.

    What a wonderful park. Can’t wait to see all the phases come together. reminds me of Stanley park in Vancouver. will there be a high end restaurant in the park?

    Thanks for all the pictures! I wonder if they plan on lengthening the boardwalk or if those stubs at the X are just design?

    Building looks about done. I’d imagine people will start moving in soon.

    I believe it is. I’ve been pushing this idea since seeing a MidtownHOU PDF on the bike lane a few years ago. https://files.acrobat.com/a/preview/fff4a3c2-5732-4a3d-8724-9ed39d67e0e1 I contacted the architect behind this. His response.

    A second construction crane base was delivered today at the construction site behind the current one. More octagonal shaped footings for foundation being filled with concrete.

    Eastern Glades was open to the public today. It was kind of empty of people because it was raining, but I would imagine this will attract quite a crowd when the weather starts getting cooler. Very nice addition to Memorial Park.

    Houston could be catching some tail winds if/when life science research gets a boost in funding or a shot in the arm due to effects of Covid. I hope our local legislators and public/private advocates rise to the challenge/opportunity.

    Yeah, finally went last night myself and walked in this area. The boardwalk in the wooded area is rather narrow, so I think these little stubs allow people to either take a break or step out of the main path so traffic can flow through.

    Oh that seems a lot worse. I wonder if they were supposed to use a Kassel Kerb (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kassel_kerb) to try to get the bus aligned properly and they screwed it up, or were trying to rely on the driver perfectly aligning with the platform everytime

    These photos of Galvez Mall finally surfaced. These were taken in 1987 during my tenure as General Manager. As mentioned in my earlier post Galvez had gone through a cosmetic renovation and the Grand Opening of the "new" Eiband's. The mall itself at the same time held a Grand Re-Opening and the day was quite an event for Galveston. Due to photo size (MB) limitations I may have to post another series of photos separately

    Not exactly a compelling reason to build a signature tower. I don't think that Houston is going to get a tower like that anytime soon because of public perception. The only potential tenants for that kind of building in Houston are oil companies. Oil companies don't want to engage in that kind of conspicuous spending because of the amount of discussion that it would start about their profits. Look at what Chevron is doing, they are building inexpensive and cheap. It's all about staying under the radar.

    It doesn't have any amenities... Their brochure actually counts the glass facade and the parking garage as amenities. They also count the restaurants on the ground floor (under the parking garage, at the other end of the site). However, a cafeteria where the common folk can have lunch is more of an amenity than a high-end fine dining restaurant. 3009 Post Oak has conferencing facilities, 609 Main will as well, plus it will have in-building cafeteria and a fitness center. You have to have those if you want to call yourself class AA.

    I'm just guessing. It sounds so right though. I'll go on to guess it'll be around 1.3 Mil Sq Ft. Although he says "Much larger" I don't see it increasing by more then 50% when it comes to square feet and 150 feet when it comes to height compared to their original proposal.
