  1. You’ve explained this twice. We understand the governing entities of each type of development and how they work; however, it doesn’t mean it is right. TXDOT should be able to fund other developments that help transportation across the state if that’s what the local communities want, but that’s assuming we live in a democracy.
  2. I’ll back this up by saying that their name says Transportation in it. seems like they only consider freeways transit. They’re clueless
  3. I, in turn, still think it is too wide. Make it a one lane road and make the sidewalks wider, add a bike lane, and plant more trees
  4. Hey, can I share this picture on my social media page, @livelihood and @livelihoodprojects
  5. Sorry, but this is just some backwards thinking in my opinion. Nature is grander than anything we as humans will ever build, and it needs to be respected as such. Plus, it is just so much more beautiful when buildings are built into nature instead of over it . Imagine thinking that The Woodlands would be much more successful and “grand” if they cut down their trees so that we could see some buildings. They’re a model for the entire city to follow
  6. I want floating buildings on the water with water level retail and underwater basements
  7. I vote for Option D because the above are atrocious:
  8. I would prefer a 7 story condo tower that fits the design and character of the neighborhood than a giant storage building with 0 character
  9. If done with the right materials, I think it’ll look good. It’s daunting, imposing, and it feels strong. Definitely something that feels reserved for only the few. Which is the target that they’re going for. If given the cheap RD treatment, it will look horrible
  10. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. In my personal opinion, natural beauty extends far beyond mountains, waterfalls, lakes, etc. Even the desert itself is beautiful in its way. But just how there are people who just like and listen to rap or rock, there will be people who just like a particular terrain and find others inferior. For all of us who do find Houston naturally beautiful, you’re not alone, lol to get back on topic, I can’t wait for the Eastern part of Buffalo Bayou to be completed. I am sure it will be “beautiful”😂
  11. Exactly! It is all a matter of perspective. Houston is so beautiful, diverse, and stunning in its way. The reason why we’ve never done well to protect/preserve our environment is because of this negative perception that we aren’t naturally beautiful. If we want to be more sustainable, greener, and preserve our natural beauty (Prairies, Swamps, Bayous, Forests, Savannahs, etc) , we need to change our way of thinking and appreciate the unique natural beauty that we are blessed with. Our appreciation will lead developers to appreciate nature as well as there is monetary benefits towards doing so.
  12. Houston is a looker in my eyes 😍
  13. Hopefully!! I’d like to see Allen University or Buffalo Bayou University... but idk Ive never heard about them wanting to change their name though
  14. CLICK HERE TO SAVE BUFFALO BAYOU https://mailchi.mp/buffalobayou/bbp-wants-to-hear-from-you-288362
  15. Ugh... why do we always get the short end of the stick?! In NYC, these towers would be 200 stories tall! We are getting the Houston treatment again. So bland and monotonous, we never push the envelope. Why can't we ever have nice things? Now, for real, this is AMAZING! So elegant, classy, luxurious, without being crazy and over the top with unnecessary design features. I think if built like the renders, this development will be timeless.
  16. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I definitely like this building more than the majority of those in your post. Some take my breath away in a bad sense. But everyone has their own opinion, which is the beauty of art/architecture!
  17. Steven Holl designed the chapel at my university, Seattle University, and the interior is one of the most thought provoking, peaceful, and transcendent spaces I’ve been in. i am excited about the interior of this space. He’s an expert at how light works inside of the building
  18. Beautiful design, especially incorporating the old building with the new. Very classy and well done
  19. Pros: Extremely low interest rates, government wants this kind of investment to continue so the economy doesn’t tank, by the time this finishes construction the virus (hopefully) will be gone. Cons: Extremely high risk, we don’t know what the hell is going on, retailers, corporations, and buyers have stopped investment. personally, I would invest, but I only got $1,000 dollars to 😂
  20. I came across this event on Facebook and thought I’d share because it’s for a good cause. Livelihood will be planting 100 trees at Buffalo Bayou Park if anyone wants to attend and meet up there! here is the link https://livelihoodprojects.org/plantings
  21. If you have an iPhone, you have a scanner in the notes app! Not sure about android
