  1. It sounds like this would be the lowrise retail + residential tower on the N side of the project, next to the apartment tower under construction. From a few pages back, we got a preview of what this might be: "SITE B1 2 or 5 Story Mixed Services Concept TBD End user is driving final concept. Once identified, design concept to be progressed further. SITE B High Rise TBD No status currently" The meeting packet identified Site B as the one I just mentioned. Recent renderings show a tower ~32 stories and a 1-2 story retail center there, so the plans may have changed (upsized even!) recently.
  2. The billboard rendering has been removed and there is now a for sale sign on the property
  3. Perhaps to complement st Thomas aquinas, for which UST is named? Two of the better known thinkers in the church, it could help sell the area as sophisticated / educated.
  4. I love the look of their developments. This and the Main building have such great scale and brickwork. I hope they build more all over town!
  5. @Lux, I believe the whole development is going to have underground parking? It's possible that they excavate the underground garage as they start on the buildings, so maybe they'll come back and expand it when they start on adjacent phases.
  6. Kind of funny that they’re marketing it as Midtown sub market when it’s in River Oaks. Where did you see that Hsu was working on it?
  7. Huge step back. Previous plan would have eliminated a sea of surface parking and have continuous storefronts down 19th. The garage could have helped handle increased traffic as 19th continued to redevelop and become a vibrant destination. This new version is just another glorified strip center.
  8. Agreed. Say what you will about his designs, but the man's not dumb.
  9. Wow what a terrible waste of that corner.
  10. Cool deal @decks05! Any hints on # of buildings and heights? Is it still 3 buildings as previously shown?
  11. I’m sure it’ll get upgraded as they build out the future phases on the east side of the development
  12. So I think this will be the eastern half of the large grass field at Sawyer & Summer. The western half looks to be occupied by the office development at 1601 Sawyer, also said to be breaking ground in Q4. There's some good info in the leasing pdf, including a massing diagram showing a ~7 story building in the spot where the residential portion is proposed.
