  1. Hope landowners are fairly compensated and let it happen. Or, eminent domain takes over.
  2. I wish it was a more architecturally significant W hotel. It looks kind of boring and W is not really on the forefront of being trendy anymore.
  3. https://twitter.com/iah/status/1206762635875758080
  4. That same company is working on the $1B New Harbor Bridge project down in Corpus Christi. They just halted the project for the same reason.
  5. Looks great, I'm really hoping this come to fruition. Are there any plans to have the site connected to rapid transit? Also, is there a benefit of having the station outside of the CBD? More spread out growth, less centralized/intense gentrification, quicker access to different parts of the city?
  6. I've always thought this. The city's entire skyline, including all of its districts, is one of the most impressive skylines in the hemisphere and would serve as a great backdrop to pretty much any rooftop bar/restaurant/entertainment. Houston could be "Rooftop City" or something
  7. Wow I'm a huge fan of the design! Its simple and minimalistic, but unlike the regular airport architecture found in the US. It's not flashy and grand, but its still a big win for Houston and all of it's international visitors.
  8. This is exciting, I want to see that park completely surrounded by mid/high-rises. Concrete canyons and locations that are 360 surrounded by buildings always give developed cities such an urban feel. That's why I love driving down Fannin in the med district
  9. If you got rid of those power lines this angle would make the street look pretty romantic
  10. Is the tall one in the rendering being built right now? I'm confused as to which building is which and what's under construction.
  11. My dream for this building has always been to strip it to its concrete, knock out some walls, add creative stairs and ramps throughout, beef up the elevators and/or put glass elevators on the sides, and turn it into a gallery/exhibit/event space/vertical graffiti park. Restyle the garage and add ground floor amenities and you could have a hot spot that generates some revenue at least
  12. I love it. These buildings, if ever built, could easily be some of the most recognizable towers in Texas. I'm really digging the helipad
  13. I actually really dig those townhomes, it'd be great if Giorgetti offered to power wash them. One can dream I guess
