  1. Apparently, according to the rumors on here, they have 11 months to "move dirt".
  2. Does anyone even know which Developer the Astros are working with? I haven't heard anything about this project other than rumors here.
  3. I thought they were going to release the renderings at LAST year's Fan Fest!
  4. I officially declare this the All-Wau-Gray District!
  5. Still....not open. In fact, Georgia James and The Flight Club were the only tenants they have open after starting this project in 2006, if not earlier...ok! Even the Ground Level Retail in the Regent Square- Soverign Tower is empty- What are the Regent Square Developers doing over there?? Not their job of finding tenants in their Mixed-Use development.
  6. How long before we hear the Kroger lot will be completely redeveloped? The infill Gods have been very kind to the area bordered by Shepherd/ Allen Parkway/ Waugh/ W. Gray. This shows the projects that are "On The Boards", called out as the "next" Future phase or are prime lots for a major urban development.
  7. 100% Sarcasm to troll mattyt36 only talking about the high rises in random places and I did mention there are multiple "non 'American cities" that are more similar to HOW Housron is developing. Please take your blood pressure medicine now.
  8. In A Robotic voice to appease mattyt36: LONDON IS A PERFECT CENTRAL NODE CITY WITH A DEFINED DOWNTOWN DISTRICT IN THE CENTER...THERE ARE ZERO SKYSCRAPERS OUTSIDE OF THAT NODE. IT IS IN NO WAY SIMILAR TO THE ORGANIC WAY HOUSTON IS DEVELOPING WHICH SPROUTS SKYSCRAPERS ANYWHERE. ANYONE WHO COMPARES THE TWO CITIES IS DELUSIONAL
  9. Maybe if you are posting on a Houston City forum, you should focus on understanding Houston better. And don't be dramatic, no one is saying Houston IS London. They are saying the non zoning, no master plan approach leads to more of a London style city (with random clusters of high rises) than a rigid zoned American City with a definite boundary between a high rise district and lower height districts...or even another European example like Paris with a defined Business District (la Defense). Houston AND London..do NOT follow those planning rules but nice trying to project your comprehension of what you want us to think.
  10. I specifically mentioned in "the areas OUTSIDE of downtown, Med Center, Uptown". FYI- GreenStreet is in downtown Houston
  11. Yes, I've been to both Los Angeles and London as well as many other cities, including Austin, Atlanta, & Seattle mentioned in your diatribe. Haven't made it to Toronto yet so I'll send you a report when I do.
  12. We were initially designed to copy a LA type of a city but the recent development of clusters a tall buildings outside of Downtown, Med Center, Uptown, Greenway, etc. is similar to a London type of city where they pop up randomly. This is happening on Allen Parkway (the 3 West Streets), Upper Kirby, and Montrose.
  13. West Dallas, West Clay, & West Gray are going to have quite the 10 year transformation, in terms of High rises and urban infill. Autry Park and Regent Square recently completed their early phases and still have many tall buildings to add. The Driscoll was recently completed with GLR. This project caps the end of West Clay @ Waugh plus TONS of potential with the shopping center site fronting West Gray. The end of West Dallas @ Waugh is getting a new multi Family project. I would think the Kroger on West Gray site also prime for another high profile urban project. I've often thought about how Houston is developing and which cities are comparable. It is not like the typical American City that focuses on one center business district, instead it is developing more like International cities. This may have been a crazy take a decade or two ago but Houston is actually starting to develop like London. the are adding mid/high rises, or clusters of mid/high rises, in the middle of infill. I'm sure there are other non-American examples.
