  1. I know the construction has been a mess with the different stages they're doing things in, but I honestly think that after its all finished that this could end up being the best designed highway in Houston. I really like how the entrance, exit ramps for the interchanges come up on the left side, in between the free lanes and the toll lanes so they can both merge together up onto the ramp instead of ending up with a mess like the Katy Tollway where you exit off the toll lanes and then have to cross over a half dozen lanes of traffic to get to the exit on the far right. Sure it'll take a while for some people to get used to the exits being on the left of the main lanes, but its a much smarter transition to get both the toll lanes and the main lanes onto the interchanges for the Beltway, 610, etc.
  2. Back in 2015 i was on a tour of some downtown developments with the urban land institute and the person giving the tour commented on this property and how steep the ramp in the parking garage will have to be (I believe he said the steepest parking garage in the state?).
  3. Any new info on this? My buddies father said they had started doing bids on this and that the financing was lined up?
  4. But a corner is sliced off! /s
  5. Cars were parked in the lot during the march on Tuesday when you posted this.. Unless the underground utilities were in the city ROW/not interfering with parking.
  6. The stone base seems more respectful of the architecture/historical aspect of market square, too.
  7. The aquarium of the americas is great. Something else I had considered back when I used to get a little ridiculous with ideas (I still think the topgolf on the roof of GRB idea would have been great, haha.. they could have even built the structure for the bays on the Houston first parking garage to support the weight) was a satellite campus for moody gardens in downtown.
  8. I’m moreso worried about when this fed pump manipulation ends and the stock market crashes, but I agree the hotel is a large part of the equation here.
  9. From possibly 48 stories, down to 31.. at least it looks like they're still keeping the design. But Q1 2021 groundbreaking? Ouch.. not holding my breath.
  10. Around woodland heights. Looks like it’s Reserve Street, and the E 5th may actually be 5th 1/2 St?
  11. Good point.. I had wondered about all the people successfully working from home and hoped more companies might go to telecommuting where it makes sense. The traffic, or lack thereof during quarantine was amazing. Plus the environmental/monetary benefits of working from home.. And yeah, as we head into the biggest recession since the Great Depression (I guess they’re going to have to come up with a new name for the Great Recession), it’s likely this will be the last major tower we see for some time..
  12. I was searching for more info on these concrete sign posts and stumbled across good ole half. I came across this old sign post in a wooded ravine today. Who knows how long it’s been there.. The middle is busted, so I’m not sure what the “Res____” Street is, but im tempted to go back and get it. No idea what I would do with it yet, ha, but it’s cool for historical purposes.
  13. So is it gfr/extending the ground floor out or did we figure out what they’re doing? Seems a little narrow for restaurant space, but I’m just sure what just inside the current walls, so maybe they could bump into there?
