  1. 4003 Washington Avenue & 4011 Washington Avenue

    It would be great if they proceeded with this plan instead! Official change?
  2. 1300 Capitol Street---New HSPVA campus

    Fence was down on 3 out 4 sides this morning. Will try to grab a pic on the way home. Thought it looked nice and we are just continuing to build that downtown fabric.
  3. 1717 Bissonnet - Ashby highrise.

    Add 10 stories and build it next to OPP downtown as condos orr lot behind the Marriott. Not going to be picky.
  4. The Kirby Mansion: 15-Story High-Rise @Brazos/Gray

    Anyone that has the contacts/know how should get this to local TV and reports. Make it a huge story.

  6. same, turning into such a prime lot. My dream development is a mixed use building with central market/modern furniture store on first floor and apartments above.
  7. Australian Developer Planning Three High-Rises for Midtown

    So when I-45 is rerouted this one goes away for two reasons? No longer on an Interstate and not really business viable?
  8. Latest Astroworld Plot redevelopment news

    Would be perfect! No need to even extend the light rail. Natural extension of the properties they already own and invest in the medical center.... Wait, never mind. That would make too much sense, ignore my comment.
  9. Latest Astroworld Plot redevelopment news

    Can Astroworld just come back?
  10. Not to mention 1825 has the rooftop pool facing downtown. I'm just glad we have moved from "should I move downtown?" to "where in downtown should i move to?"
  11. Hines Block 42 Residential High-Rise: 46-stories

    Skyscraper Page has 2929 at 162.5M and Huntingdon at 153.3M. Which one is right?
  12. Hines Block 42 Residential High-Rise: 46-stories

    That would make it the tallest in Houston, correct? Tallest now is 2929 Wesleyan at 533 ft ?
  13. Block 58 Redevelopment by Hines, 47-Story Office Tower

    From the little knowledge I have it's all of the above. I would think it varies by real estate value and the structure. Point in fact, NYC just demolished 3 "historic" buildings to build One Vanderbilt and JPM plans to demolish their 50's style tower to build a more substantial modern tower. Other buildings, especially the turn of the century examples, have been office, hotel, residential, to now boutique hotels. I stayed in such a building just this year.
  14. Block 58 Redevelopment by Hines, 47-Story Office Tower

    I didn't realize hot takes were published and thought of as great and informative journalism...wait. All sarcasm aside, I think it would be great to see where all of this space is. For example, how much of the available office space in in the vacated office buildings around Greenspoint? That space will probably be available for a long time. How much of the space is in the energy corridor? etc. There is a reason more buildings are being built downtown/centrally. That is where young people and now even older generations want to be. Even if they are not going to work in the CBD.
