  1. Hands down one of the best MF projects we've seen recently. The materials, design, structure.... Marquette crushed this project. Need more.

  3. These might be my favorite in-fill projects. We need more Reveres, Westmores, Giorgettis, and Lexingtons throughout River Oaks, Upper Kirby, Greenway, etc. Hats off to Pelican for leading this charge.

  4. I saw folks installing massive mounting brackets on the center section last week and figured some lights or signage would go up. Didn't expect it would be a giant Ukrainian flag being mounted.

  6. Staging area for The Revere At River Oaks? Another idea is 2406 Mimosa Terrace, formerly Revere Park At River Oaks.

  7. It's still a fun spot. I've been going there for after work drinks for a while now. Also, they could still build out the area so having a pole building with some shipping containers is probably a good thing for now.

  8. Turner has certainly been one of Houston's most practical and pragmatic mayors and its why I've always thought well of him. He understands that Houston is strictly a workers/business city, and must be open to business and friendly to businesses at all times, but at the same time he clearly is an establishment Democrat. Turner is what blue cities should be running as candidates. Even though Turner knows how to cater to Progressives, I don't ever get the feeling his is very ideologically driven, and yet at the same time he is very pro/hands off in regards to business, but does take the other side when it comes to certain issues. He's been a great mayor in my opinion. While others have gone completely wacko, or run their cities to the ground, Turner has been maintained a steady hand in a world that seems like its full of clowns. He's growing the city, he's firmly behind Houston's ethos of no zoning. He is pro-development. He is pro-expanding city services in areas that are achievable with the political will he knows he has. He also seems very independently minded. I do agree with some on here, the only chance a Republican will become mayor in Houston again is if Houston takes a drastic turn for the worst like what happened to NYC decades ago which lead to Republicans running the city in the 90's, or you get a centrist/populist type who rides a wave due to some escalation of social issues. The old country club Republican is basically extinct politically and never really matched Houston very well unless you were part of the Big Oil hegemony. With that force meaning back gradually to the average as other industries expand, I've always thought Houston is a city dominated by business interests and depending on what direction the cities business interests lie is not only where the city will go politically, but where it will also find its next mayor. I wouldn't be surprised just like we had mayors connected to Big Oil, at some point we will have Big Space interests or Big Pharma/Big Biomed interests and then you will get candidates that reflect that.

  12. It's amazing to me how the R's hate unions except for police and fire, which are unions that should be banned. I'll be voting for Hidalgo this fall. I won' tbe voting for any Republican candidate until the party as a whole denounces Trump and selects some candidates who are not certifiably insane.

  16. That's really too bad. I really like J-Bar-M and think it is very underrated compared to Truth. I also was a big fan of Night Shift. These two examples show how risky it is to have a concept revolving around a few specific people. Same thing happened with Degust, Pax Americana, etc.

  18. Don't limit yourself. Ground floor car wash in all apartment complexes that also serve hot chicken sandwiches.

  19. If we had zoning, we could require the carwashes to also have hot chicken sandwich restaurants, saving a lot of space along Shep for additional development. Instead of always asking for ground floor retail in new apartment complexes, we should have been demanding hot chicken sandwiches at all our car washes.

  22. From this morning's RNR Bulletin email...no article yet on RNR website. https://realtynewsreport.com/ Mixed-Use Tower Planned Near Galleria HOUSTON – DeisoMoss, a real estate firm out of Miami, plans to develop a mixed-use tower on Post Oak Boulevard, just north of Westheimer Road and The Galleria. Plans call for a 2023 groundbreaking for a 552,000-SF building with 100,000 SF of office space, 355 apartment units and upscale retail. DeisoMoss’ greenfield site, 2120 Post Oak Blvd., is adjacent to a building developed by Stream Realty that was formerly known as the BBVA Compass Plaza. Like a question mark, the property has remained as a two-acre Uptown lawn for years. Everybody knew it had potential and the question was only when a developer would pull the trigger. For tax purposes, the site is appraised at $11.4 million. Andrew Deiso and Taylor Moss are the name partners in the DeisoMoss firm, which has offices in downtown Miami. The new high-rise project has secured some financing. Northwind Group recently provided a $26.1 million first mortgage bridge loan. Surya Capital Partners arranged the financing. Some observers may gasp at the thought of more office space being dropped into the Houston market where vacancy is sky-high. But new “Class AA” office buildings outperform older properties. I used to think that the “flight to quality” concept sounded like empty sales hype. The new buildings actually do have a special magnetism for tenants. As far as the DeisoMoss project on Post Oak, please note that much of the tower will be devoted to multifamily.

  23. I like the quirky aesthetics of this place. I'm curious as to how they will furnish the interior and what the rents will be. I do wish they would have kept more green space in the courtyard area like some of the older garden apartments in Montrose. I'm sure this place will be ideally located once the blue line is running.

  25. For those that don't know, Jackson and Ryan Architects do a lot of work in Houston. They did One Park Place, Market Square Tower, and Museum Tower which are all skyscrapers relevant to this project type. They've always been somewhat Historicist, but always leaned more into abstract representations of classical forms and motifs. There early works were more post-modern. Let me tell you what, this looks to me to be there most focused work in regard to highrises. Its been a long long long time since I've seen proper classical detailing, and proportion applied to highrises of this type. Normally elements, for the sake of costs and lack of knowledge in classical detailing, results in these revival styles coming off as wonky, overly abstract, and then once you apply "value-engineering" (or as a friend in my office calls it "quality-abatement"), cheap. Thus far I'm impressed by the representations. Like the base with the bigger stone, cornices are pretty substantial, surrounds on the windows, the Doric columns match the simplicity of everything else, so thats right, and even how they manage the penthouse for all the mechanical works well as a nice "hat" at the top. Looking forward to this one breaking ground. Hopefully they don't go cheap on the materials. That will be key. Yeah it would look nice from far away, but the moment you get up close the cheap materials really stick out. If one is a resident in Tanglewood, at the very least if a skyscraper is next door it could have been worse. At least whats next to you will aesthetically be pleasing.
