  1. Apologies, I actual meant the Milam street side is the worst side. The Travis side is actually not as bad because as seen in the picture, half of that side is driveways. Pic I took before barricades were taken down.
  2. I could not agree more. On the Travis St and Milam St sides they took what was otherwise a large sidewalk and made it tiny. Unsure how no one pointed that out. Wish them all the success but kind of hoping the City takes corrective action. It is especially bad on the Travis street side. Otherwise, I think it is a great addition and in my opinion turned out better than expected.
  3. That is awesome! are they fully launching in Houston?
  4. There is already one in the tunnels under 1000 Main. Seems to do alright.
  5. I think that is a fair comparison. There is a certain cheapness to it reminiscent of student dorms. It is great to have a wide range of housing options however, these are not much more economic than the "luxury" options up and down the street.
  6. If it turns out to be residential I can already hear it now. "We offer direct access to the bayou and have dedicated bike and kayak storage."
  7. Great development. Question though, at what point do we rename Main Street to Marriott Street? -Residence Inn -Courtyard -Sprinhill -JW Marriott -AC Hotels -Moxy -Icon All from Polk Street to the Bayou. In fact, if it was not for the Holiday Inn, every hotel on Main street in downtown would be a Marriott.
  8. You took the words right out of my mouth. The pictures of the updated progress immediately made me think about the Austin food hall on Congress & Cesar Chavez.
  9. Is it me or does it seem like this will be above ground in like two weeks? That vertical rebar already seems to be at street level.
  10. Love the development, hate that the power lines were not buried. If the City wont do it, why don't they ask the developer to do it as an improvement on these new builds? Anyone have any insight?
  11. Wow, I guess Houston is not the only city willing to turn away jobs and billions of dollars. (UT Campus) Interesting to see where this all ends up.
  12. Articles mentions space is 3,600 sq ft. That is the approx size of the spot next to the coffee shop along Fannin.
  13. I do not disagree with you on the overall project. However, the two story lobby into the tunnels appears to be turning into something unlike anything else downtown.
