  1. The work is supposed to start this week and a press release should be mid June. No link, just getting from someone involved in the golf/restaurant part of the project
  2. East9 will be an actual 9 hole course with driving range and restaurant/bar
  3. There is a very structured process for contractors and subs to file suit for foreclosure. This means that cemex has sent several notices to the project owner “fund trapping noticed” and gotten no satisfaction. You foreclose on a property, not a company or owner. If the suit goes forward, this property could very well be auctioned in a foreclosure process. But that won’t be quick unfortunately
  4. This reminds me when Texas A&M tried to buy STCL and UH threw a hissy fit. They wound up in Fort Worth instead and took a law school that didn’t even register before to a top 100 school in less than 4 years.
  5. Don't you mean in the short run? In the long run huge developments and a transit center may create itself here.
  6. https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3409546-Emergency-NatSec50Projects-121416-1-Reduced.html TCR listed as one of 50 infrastructure projects prioritized by the admin. Fingers crossed this thread stays clear of other politics.
  7. agreed. It looks like some depressing Eastern European communist project
  8. It's very easy access from Montrose/Hyde park area as well.
  9. In fairness, the girl in the pool could possibly be Hispanic.
  10. Those fins aren't structural. There's no way they could become balconies
  11. Interesting repurposing. I admit I don't know the economics but it makes me wonder why an ATT building can be transformed but the buildings on Louisiana can't be saved.
  12. Real estate in this town is in much worse shape than I think you realize. There's over one million sq feet in the energy corridor you can get dirt cheap. And poaching one tenant from one class a building to a new under construction building isn't a sign of strength. Residential real estate is down for the first time in years. This town has some rough times coming up. It's not doom and gloom because we are much more diversified, but oil is by far the economic driver.
  13. Holy cow. Are new AA buildings really commanding that kind of rent downtown? In the current environment, why would anyone pay $60/ft in Houston?
  14. Any businesses with contracts with the Lancaster? That's the fastest way to make a change. Hit em where it hurts.
  15. The Houston A&M club is the largest alumni club in the country. They aren't focused on Houston. They're working to build their presence in Dallas with the new law school. I'd bet you would see an A&M Dallas before you saw an A&M HOUSTON campus.
  16. It's not a gem, but it's just a Hampton Inn. Those things don't typically make any kind of impact on a skyline unless you're Raleigh or some place like that.
  17. Eh. This group kept bragging about how nice their first property was going to be, but it looks rundown.
  18. Monarch, don't confuse resorts and hotels. Marriott resorts can be very nice, but that doesn't make it a luxury hotel brand. I've stayed in the LM in LA and it was nice but not a luxury brand. The building didn't stand out and the location wasn't great either. My only wish would be for balconies. That would be baller if they could incorporate that somehow.
