  9. Small world... I was talking to my nephew in NYC yesterday, and it turns out he was highly involved in this project. I should preface with I never really knew who he worked for, or the details of what he does, I just knew he was in urban planning (Masters from NYU). I also knew he was working with Rice on long-term development ideas for the Village, as he had flown back to Houston (he grew up here) a few times for meetings (pre-Covid). So we're talking yesterday, and I mentioned that Rice had another project going--the Ion--and he says "Yes, that was my project also". What?!?

  18. The tower crane is going up this weekend.Rode by early and then a second time after the Heights Rally and Scavenger Hunt. Talked with someone who said it will be 200' high initially but will eventually climb to 500' as needed.

  25. The Memorial Park Conservancy Instagram account released this awesome video detailing the land bridges and how they will function. A lot of interesting information I did not know, especially concerning the drainage of water!

  26. Storm water retention. Lately it is becoming more common to build a cast-in-place concrete detention vault below buildings. Knight Road (Barvin) and Bowen are examples. Block 98 was originally designed with one but later eliminated. The ones in the picture are pre-cast. They are sealed together and buried after the storm lines are tied in.

  29. So what your are looking at here are Auger Cast Piles. In Houston these typically go deep (60 - 120+ feet deep) and rely largely on skin friction with the soil. We do NOT "go to bedrock" in Houston, it is simply too far down to get to. Fun fact: Many of the tall building foundations downtown are VERY shallow. They use a mat slab which is anywhere between 8-15 feet thick across the entire footprint of the building.

  33. The tower crane's base is installed in what will be the sidewalk and a lane of traffic, so its temporary and will be removed. The tower crane operator says the rest of it will be erected next weekend. Sewer tie-in has steel plates covering the street.
