  1. But it's the same company right? No trademark problems with yourself.
  2. While there is a chance that I still would have liked the glass podium better, I'm ready to admit that the stone looks pretty damn good.
  3. I noticed that they took down a number of trees downtown on Main and on Travis in the last month or so. I assume that they were dead from the freeze but it seems like we never have a chance for most of the street trees to mature in DT.
  4. They got like $50 million dollars for keeping it historic (not sure if it was tax breaks or what but I read that number somewhere). You can’t do much with the facade and still get that.
  5. They have not planted the food garden yet, I assume that is what they are flying up.
  6. Admittedly, I’ve only ever tried during dinner times so I’m not sure what time it opens.
  7. Aren’t all of these buildings past their tax free period? Seems like we get very little from the TIRZ relative to the size of the tax base. If somebody breaks a bottle or drops deuce outside somewhere, it will be there for a week at a minimum. Broken things like this clock tower seem like a given.
  8. I’ve been numerous times. Never seen it closed.
  9. If they turned the parking lot between McIntyre's and the bayou into parkland....
  10. This happens on a ton of projects in Houston. I did some consulting work for this type of company one time and would compare their list to HAIF. They were not the only company in town and their list usually covered like 1/4 of the Going Up section.
  11. Yeah, for me the sun at the pool trumps a view. Plus, this way you get pool view or downtown view and so more of the building is desirable.
  12. The sled in the background of Hindesky's photo does appear to be a dewatering pump sled assembly.
