  1. The conder block wall the tree mural was on?
  2. McNair Mixed-Use: ~6-acres at 3200 Post Oak Blvd

    It wasn't originally as obvious, but I noticed in the image on the Rosewood website that Naviguessor linked that the hotel+condo tower seems to have trees/vegetation at the top.. I assume the pool/amenity deck for the condo portion of the tower. That rooftop terrace would have quite the views.
  3. The residential tower is Block 42. I haven't seen the previous indication of 46 stories, but I've been super busy and haven't been very active around here lately. Sounds like it should break Houstons unwritten rule of the 40 story threshold for residential towers. Yeah, I wasn't sure if he was getting the block number and the number of floors mixed up, hence the "could be off by a couple stories" note.. heh. Hopefully we should hear something soon since people are bidding on the project already.
  4. I heard someone mention 42 stories for the residential tower? That floor count could be off a couple of stories. "Twisty" was one of the words used to describe the design.
  5. Museum of Fine Arts Houston Expansion

    It took me a while to realize, but its actually completely hollow. I thought it was a shallow concave on the north side, but its totally open to the inside of cloud column.
  6. Bids are being taken/awarded for the block 42 residential tower. I can’t wait to see this design everyone keeps talking about.
  7. Looks like they added 10 floors to this tower from their original plans. Maybe that means the other tower will end up closer to 50 stories?
  8. AT&T Building

    I noticed that too when I was passing by a week or two ago when the crane was there removing the antenna on the roof. Kind of like how the old Chronicle building had one segment built over the old theater.
  9. Oh wow, I assumed it was just perspective, but the floors don’t look like they go much higher than Calpine Center’s 33 floors (451’). I wonder if they’re trying to be more “courteous”, with respect to imposing on Market Square, or just a more realistic view of the downtown office rental market?
  10. I never realized that the protrusion/set back on the side wrapped around the back portion of the tower.
  11. Thats awesome. I count ~16 floors in urbannizers post, and about 10 of them are shorter parking garage levels, so this should have a decent presence for being only 35 stories.
  12. Discovery Green

    Haha, I know right? Though it is a convention hotel.. The issue isn't so much that kids are there. That's to be expected.. the problem is all the terrible parents these days who don't punish their kids or teach them how to behave properly, so you end up with a bunch of kids yelling and screaming as they're running across the podium causing a ruckus, because the parents don't want to be bothered or deal with them while they're sipping their mixed drinks over in a cabana.. I've read multiple reviews talking about the problem with kids being loud and obnoxious on the pool deck.
  13. The Post Oak: 36-Story High-Rise & Conference Center

    That area where they look to be shoring up the bank of the bayou? I noticed that too. Maybe just trying to fix an erosion problem?
  14. welcome my dear HAIF, to the NEW TEXAS!

    Im all for the school spirit/enthusiasm, but I cant help but think the UT locker room looks oddly familiar to another in state locker room.. The big state schools seem to prefer the flashy lights and video boards.
