  1. Lmao of course they blocked the part of the building with windows but let the totally blank wall remain exposed.
  2. WOW! I've been waiting for that area to explode. There's so many large tracts that seem very underutilized, lots of potential around the 20th St bar district. Here's to hoping this is just the beginning.
  3. Fingers crossed for a gas station or self storage facility
  4. It looks like he already has much of the value engineering built into the initial render. If he can actually pull off the painted brick, it would be miles better than the stucco he's had on his recent builds. The white stucco just always looks incomplete to me, like it's waiting for another coat of paint or a metal panel to be installed over it...
  5. Do you think there's going to be an extended shutdown to investigate? I recall that occurring for the incidents at the new hotel off I45 N and the Hard Rock in Nola... certainly not nearly as bad in this situation though. It looks like at least 2 floors have been damaged. I wonder how much they'll have to repair.
  6. 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.
  7. The billboard rendering has been removed and there is now a for sale sign on the property
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. @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.
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. Agreed. Say what you will about his designs, but the man's not dumb.
  14. Wow what a terrible waste of that corner.
  15. Cool deal @decks05! Any hints on # of buildings and heights? Is it still 3 buildings as previously shown?
  16. I’m sure it’ll get upgraded as they build out the future phases on the east side of the development
  17. 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.
  18. That’s the old proposal, which was 28 stories and encompassed the entire block. The new proposal is 21 stories and takes the eastern half of the block.
  19. Looks like they had about 2 floors left to go on the amenities building though... Are they switching all the work over to the new crane for the tower? Or (I hate asking) is this project going to get sidelined...?
  20. Wow that's an awesome photo. I would guess that's sometime between 1971 and 1975, as 3 Greenway is built and 5 Greenway is under construction. You can see they've excavated most of the basement under 3/5GW and the foundation for the towers is in place.
