    This is out near my old middle school, T.H. Rogers.

    Randall Davis Condo 3723 Westheimer Road

    I suspect they'd be held to be abandoned as far as restricting commercial use of the property, but going from a one-two story commercial building to a highrise is quite a shift. I'd have suggested getting a declaratory judgment on the issue before moving forward with the purchase. Edit: I'd need to see the actual language of the deed restrictions to determine arguments on the potential scope of abandonment. Abandonment of a portion of a deed restriction does not meet abandonment of all of the restrictions. So, if the restrictions also impose height or other limitations, those might be enforced even if the use restriction could not be enforced.

    “Rimmed” brings to mind a *very* colorful image. 😉 #haifafterdark

    Asia House

    As I recall, there was talk that the original design would have flipped the “front” of the museum. I’m not too broken up over it, given that we got a pretty nice building. I think a complementary structure on the vacant lot would be pretty cool, though. Edit: I meant to say “complementary” rather than “complimentary.” New Year’s fatigue. 🙂
  6. Interestingly, the Metro plan suggests BRT could be converted for autonomous vehicle use in the future.

    The Asia Society now owns the vacant lot to the southwest of this building, at Caroline and Oakdale.

    The sign was illuminated green tonight. Couldn’t get a shot from the highway.

    Australian Developer Planning Three High-Rises for Midtown

    That's a cool photo. There's the general Caydon Properties website referencing this project, but nothing yet that provides floor plans or leasing information. Given the progress on the project, I'd hoped we might have something by now.

    Grocers Supply Co. - 3131 Holcombe Blvd

    The thread did not appear when I searched “Grocers Supply” and “288.” Perhaps it is not as easily located as you imagined. In any event a merger would be appropriate, although I’d suggest the topic be shifted to “Going Up” in light of the appearance of architectural renderings.

    Grocers Supply Co. - 3131 Holcombe Blvd

    I hadn't seen anything posted on this, but I came across this master plan from Munoz Albin. This appears to be for the parcels at the Grocers Supply site by 288: https://munozalbin.com/project/old-market-east-omaha-master-plan/

    Memorial & Shepherd: New condo tower, future mixed-use

    These appear to be be the most informative quotes: “[A] tower condo slated for a portion of land on the 15-acre Bayou Park Apartments property off Memorial and Shepherd, could break ground by the end of next year if plans and permits get sorted out by then. Nitya Capital closed on the almost 700-unit Bayou Park Apartments in late November, Agarwal said. It was the company’s biggest single purchase to date. Although Agarwal wouldn’t disclose purchase price, the property was appraised at $57.8 million in 2018, according to the Harris County Appraisal District.” “Agarwal plans to keep the existing apartments and develop the tower condo on open space, he said. He gave a rough estimate of $250 million for the project.” Jinx, lol.
