  1. The lot referenced in the link at 1820 Binz is up for sale. I suspect Surge is limiting their ambitions at the moment, given the progress on Museum BLVD.
  2. I'm curious as to what type of hotel might go here. The brochure mentions a "well-known US hotel operator," but also describes the hotel as "boutique." I think the Hyatt Centric brand might fit that description.
  3. From the brochure: ”Five towers will form the foundation of this residential community with exciting retail offerings on the ground floor.” (emphasis added). What constitutes a tower? At least 10 stories?
  4. Interesting. I dig that Caydon is embracing ground floor retail throughout the site to build a mini-community folks can walk through. From this overview, it looks as though there might be four distinct structures north of the currently-under-construction highrise. I'm quite curious to see what Caydon does with these smaller footprints.
  5. TAP Portugal is looking to add IAH in 2020: https://onemileatatime.com/tap-air-portugal-new-destinations-2020/
  6. The HBJ is now reporting this site will be for multifamily: https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2019/03/18/new-apartments-could-go-up-on-26-acre-tract-near.html?iana=hpmvp_hstn_news_headline
  7. https://imgur.com/gallery/6wdLbGQ Got this shot walking across the bridge on MacGregor. Caydon’s tower is now quite prominent and looks like an extension of the Downtown skyline.
  8. I found this article from back in November 2018 in which Joe Russo was interviewed by BisNow. I thought his discussion of getting financing was interesting--basically, there isn't much appetite to directly finance multifamily development back in Australia so "condos" are developed to be owned and rented out by various individual investors: https://www.bisnow.com/houston/news/multifamily/exclusive-whyjoe-russochose-houston-seattle-over-the-typical-developer-route-in-new-york-la-and-miami-94610
  9. So much for the restaurant across the street once my firm moves offices.
  10. On the bright side, Origin moving here allows Dr. Mann to move forward with the medical office building on the site of the old drive-through bank at Southmore and San Jacinto.
  11. I've been musing as to whether a "Gateway" style project, as is being discussed over the Metro TMC transit center, could work at the Wheeler Transit Center nearby to this along with the vacant lots to the south of I-69 abutting the lightrail tracks. I reckon it'll take completion of a number of other structures after the Ion to promote the kind of density needed to justify such a structure.
  12. Add in the fact that a killer whale is technically a dolphin—it hits on a lot of levels.

  14. Lol. Following SkyHouse’s model. Go for controlled costs and a repeated innocuous design.
