  1. Why did they change the name to Brava, from The Preston? The Preston worked better with the historic Market Square area.
  2. 2 things here.. The only part of the New York that is jumbled is the old Dutch and English parts at the tip of Manhattan. The rest is as rigid of a grid as you get, thanks to the 1812 plan. We've all seen the photos of the 'Canyons and Valleys" of Manhattan streets. On Houston, it's a matter of perspective- Views from 288, 45, and 59 have views that are not straight on.
  3. ........or they all will be like that and this was just a mock-up portion. the rest could be covered in protective film that they will remove before completion.
  4. Great Charming City! I was there last November/early December (Pre-Covid) and I found it surprisingly very affordable. I guess they raise the prices in the summer..so go in the fall!
  5. Have you not seen the skyline of Paris, called La De'fense?
  6. Just like his football team has done since......2002
  7. Does someone have a rendering of what is being constructed now vs. the additional phases to be built out later? Does that master plan exist?
  8. Plus very low interest rates that make the project MORE feasible!
  9. Poor Regent Square- they were all set to begin construction in 2009 then the Great recession happened. Then they strategically decided to table the master plan and start with a stand-alone apartment tower missing out on a decade of boom time in Houston n which this project would have incredibly successful. Then they scale back their master plan and begin construction and then a pandemic throws the retail market into limbo.
  10. Maybe Cal will name Bill O'Brien as the General Contractor on this project!
  11. You have to remember, this the McNair family we are talking about. If they approach this project like they do their football team, it will be mediocre AT BEST. I hope not...but the fact they continue to drag their feet on this one echoes how they run the Texans.
  12. Didn't they have a public event with scaled models of the whole site? This thing has already been schematically designed...we just need them to release the design to the public.
  13. Have we heard anything else about this project? It's been quiet.
