  4. All tenants in the old building have moved to the new one. Both it's parking lot and the one next to it are blocked off. The prosed high rise would go in the latter.

  9. Talked with a food truck vendor selling the crew food. He said all the other trucks were jealous of him cause he knew where all the construction projects are since he uses the web site SkyRise Cities. I told he could probably find more projects if he used HAIF. He googled it and said he would check it out. I showed him the rendering of this and pointed out some other projects in the area. He said he was told they were going to break up the concrete in the old parking lot next week according to the superintendent.

  12. A parking garage will either be designed as “open” or “enclosed”. An open parking garage has a minimum required amount of open area to qualify for natural ventilation. Even if you put a perforated metal screen or other type of cover over the openings, the free area ratio of the screen must be multiplied by the area of the opening to determine the actual free area. An enclosed garage option is going to be a significant additional cost of millions of dollars when compared to that of an open-air design. Closed parking garages require mechanical ventilation and also fire sprinkler protection. Also, fire separation code applies differently to enclosed vs open. A closed garage has more stringent requirements for the fire rating of the exterior wall assemblies, where as an open garage does not. These added costs are also accompanied by the design and engineering costs of the exterior garage skin. So, it’s not impossible to achieve a desirable looking parking garage, it’s just so expensive (to construct and maintain) that in most cases it doesn’t make sense. Some developers and design teams do a better job at dressing them up than others. I hope this information adds value to the discussion and perhaps opens additional dialogue.

  13. I don't know that there is an official name as of yet. It is being referenced to as "Oak Park" right now. Construction is slated to begin mid July, which will likely just be underground utilities and such. I don't have much information on the actual buildings other than there is going to be multi-family, retail, dining, POB (offices), and parking (in addition to the existing parking garage). Johnson Development and Garden Capital Partners. This development is going forward. Hoping that it is built and completed as proposed. I would really be happy to see a nice mixed-used development happen in this part of town. I still remember how Park 8 got me excited and then broke my heart.

  20. Apparently the Consolidated AT crane wasn't there to remove the tower crane. I think it might have loaded out the sections they had already removed from the tower crane.

  27. got invited last night to go to Uchiko as part of their soft opening and wow was the food good...and since i am not the biggest sushi fan, i had to try their appetizers: Brussel Spouts (and omg just freaking incredible)...and the Karaage (incredible as well!)... the service was great, people were super nice, chris loved the sushi (as expected as he frequents Uchi) and he had a couple of cocktails he said were made perfectly. I recommend sitting at the full bar for quick service...or if not in a hurry, ask to sit at one of the handful of booths in the main dining area...those were awesome. anyway...super fun to be able to walk here last night and see the place buzzing! you CAN definitely walk in tonight or tomorrow and chance getting getting a table or a seat at the bar without an invite or reservation...they are closed sunday to take a 1 day break before the big grand opening. (IF you get in tonight or tomorrow they are doing a Soft Opening discount so our tab was about half...so we left a nice tip of course!)

  32. Wow, this portion of Buffalo Bayou is soo pretty! It looks like a full blown river! I can bet most Houstonians will be mind blown when they see this project finish. I hope more dense projects take place along this side of Buffalo Bayou to give us our own "River Walk"
