  1. They could just extend the columns from the current roof up to the next floor plate and begin pouring. The current roof area would be a maintenance and storage floor that is wrapped in glass like the rest of the tower. The buffer between the hotel and office portions would also keep the construction noise down. Once the hotel is ready, you would build out the elevator infrastructure and connect them once complete.
  2. After visiting Fabrica la Aurora in San Miguel de Allende, I was thinking this would be a really cool spot for artist studios and a high end gallery. However, based on the description on their website, it will be yet another co-working space:
  3. The plan is to build out the courts and basic amenities first (in order to open by May), then the finishing touches would be added in the following months. Easily achievable, in my opinion... but yes, they need to start ASAP.
  4. This article says the next phase will break ground in Q2 2020. https://www.multihousingnews.com/post/laneways-midtown-a-growth-story-from-the-south/
  5. The way the structure is designed, it looks like it could be a retractable roof. That is an interesting twist to this development.
  6. I love that the tide in Houston has shifted to master planned high-density infill. This video shows what every large parcel in the inner loop should be destined for.
  7. I think a lot of that was designated to the stand-alone parking garage. If this is a podium or wrap structure, it should go up a lot quicker.
  8. Sunset has announced an opening date of January 17th:
  9. I saw them working on that a month or so ago. Couldn't determine if that was the original Proof structure or something new.
  10. The synergy between this food hall (if it materializes) and the Hawker food hall across main will be incredible for foot traffic. Not to mention, once the hotel, condos, and additional rental units at Laneways come on line AND with the AMCAL highrise going up... this section of McGowen will be unrecognizable in 5 years.
  11. No clue why Next Level even bothered to test the countdown clock on their website... so many other things that need to be done before that.
  12. After reviewing the wording (https://casetext.com/statute/texas-codes/property-code/title-8-landlord-and-tenant/chapter-92-residential-tenancies/subchapter-a-general-provisions/section-920132-effective-112020-term-of-parking-permit), it makes no mention of anything other than: if the landlord issues a permit, they must honor it. Therefore, if your lease states that it's up to you to find parking (aka street parking) this new change does not apply.
  13. Requiring a landlord to guarantee a parking space when they provide a parking permit seems like an enhancement of a tenant's rights and would seem to be a no-brainer. If you say I get to park in the garage, there had better be a spot for me. However, if the parking space was an add-on to the lease (which is what I believe Texasota was referring to - discount for not having a car) it wouldn't cause a conflict with the statute mentioned.
  14. If I'm not mistaken, most of Midtown north of McGowen was already exempted from parking minimums. That change had no effect on this project.
  15. What an update on this project! https://www.chron.com/entertainment/restaurants-bars/article/Ambitious-new-food-hall-projects-slated-for-EaDo-14937598.php?
