  1. Anecdotally I’ve seen a lot of old small office spaces outside of major office market areas being torn down and replaced with retail or other more modern and useful development. Honestly would love for that to happen more. I’d rather lose 100 of those small outdated office blocks than one tower downtown.
  2. People like this don’t have the time, money or energy to fight something like that.
  3. Texas children’s down the street did this. They added like 10 stories or something to an existing occupied building. This is no doubt a disappointing development on this project but I’d much prefer this to what is currently occupying the land.
  4. There are an absurd amount of empty lots in this city that can be filled up first, then the surface lots, then the shitty stucco strip malls, then... We have so much space to add density without destroying historic structures.
  5. Is it not just part of the form for the central core/elevator shafts like the blue steel here on the Allen Project.
  6. So many signs hold no legal power and are just to scare people into submission. Like those "stay back 200ft, not responsible form broken windows" on dump trucks are total BS. With that said I have no idea lol
  7. They should be working 24/7 at double overtime to fix this colossal screw up.
  8. I'd love to know how this small parking lot even survived. Was just that one strip of land that this building is being built on not sold to Hess tower developers or did they save it in order to sell it to a future developer?
  9. So pumped to see this amazing space in person. I've always thought of how cool it would be to work on such a iconic and lasting building like a famous museum. It will be even more special I imagine in 20, 30, 40 years to revisit it and know you had a hand in its assembly.
  10. It's amazing to see how much denser this area is becoming yet when you look at google maps you can see how much land is left completely undeveloped or very underdeveloped.
  11. Exactly, they will keep and use historic buildings if they can charge a premium for that building or if the numbers make sense but this will be a relatively easy demo and therefor much more profitable to replace.
  12. You have to remember that developers have zero sentimental attachment to anything. People don't seem to understand or just don't want to come to the realization that developers literally only care about making as much money as possible and nothing else. This is why our city needs more protections for historic buildings because soon we will have none left.
  13. Exactly, at least from the ground level its not too bad. Especially sense it has some GFR.
  14. As a huge fan of classical antiquity I am pretty excited to see this statue! Also I guess a giant tower would be pretty nice too
