  1. That date felt a bit ambitious before the pandemic.
  2. Great! I love these smaller infill developments and the renders are handsome.
  3. What’s going on with the tower crane at the courthouse?
  4. The tallest building is the one on the right in the second picture. You are seeing it from the ground level and can’t see its height. Looks to be the same design as far as I can tell.
  5. Beautiful! Kind of wonder how the office market will be. Could be a tough time to build this.
  6. Yes I have but it's not even in the top 10 things that come to mind when I think of Paris which further reinforces my point. You also seem to have missed my point that having or not having a great skyline is pretty irrelevant to making a city great. Paris would still be one of the greatest cities on earth with or with out La De'fense.
  7. So true. Houston loves to allow developers the right to block as many lanes of traffic and sidewalks for as long as they please.
  8. It’s still somewhat important but no one goes New York for the main purpose of sitting across the river in New Jersey and looking at the skyline. Most great cities are not great because they have nice skylines. For example Barcelona and Paris have next to no iconic skylines outside of a single structure in each.
  9. I personally have started to care less and less about what stuff looks like form the freeway. That is not how you live or truly interact with a city. I want developments to be very inviting and cohesive with their surrounds at the ground level which is where people actually are going to be. I'll always trade freeway presence in a building for one that adds to the neighborhood instead of just another sculpture for suburbanites to look at on their way to an Astros game.
  10. I’d recon at least half of the concrete that is in the parcel between Holcombe and Dixie drive has been removed. I can get pictures soon.
  11. No pictures, sorry guys/gals, but the concrete that is closest to 24 hour fitness is currently being busted up and shipped off.
  12. I don’t know if these signs are new or not but there are Harvey construction signs on the fencing. I’m pretty observant so I feel like they are new but I’m not 100% sure. Also I doubt Harvey did the Post Oak renovation so this could be a good sign.
  13. I'm sure the ground floor will look fine which is what most people will be interacting with anyway.
