  1. Quick question: Are these mock-ups required to be displayed? If so, why?
  2. Drewery Place and The Travis are obviously struggling relative to comparable properties in other neighborhoods. Do you think it’s a marketing failure or is Midtown just less desirable? I can’t help but think it’s a Midtown problem. I wonder if the recent surge in crime/shootings, the Greyhound Depot dilemma and the sheer volume of homeless people have many steering clear of Midtown altogether.
  3. I’m completely confused. Seems as though Caydon is dumping and running, but the Realty News Report article says they’re about to start the Fitzroy? Really? After foreclosure? All of the on-site promotional banners for Fitzroy/Kimpton came down last weekend (replaced by graffiti - yay!) and everything online indicates the development is defunct. Unless I’m missing something, whoever researched this article did a horrible job fact-checking.
  4. I have to agree that the color scheme isn’t cohesive. The finished product is quite different from the rendering.
  5. Great news!!! Anyone know how condo sales are going for this? It seems like Houston is slow to embrace high-rise condo living.
  6. Ugh. Another self storage facility. The vast number of these, Mattress Firms and ER centers in this town will forever baffle me.
  7. Heard from a friend who works for Midtown Management District that the Fitzroy/Kimpton tower will be delayed again. . . until 2022. Anyone else hear anything to that effect?
  8. I’ve never driven down a stretch of road with more narrow lanes. Any time there’s heavy traffic I’m white-knuckling the steering wheel. Reconstruction would be soooooooo nice!
  9. Where is the other Midtown location? I know of Montrose, Med Center and Downtown locations.
  10. Common Bond Midtown coming to Drewery Place. Big win for Midtown!
  11. I think it’s the last full floor. Only the crown left.
  12. Sort of. . . The “10 story building” in back is a parking garage with a ballroom on the top floor.
  13. $33 million on a project for which construction hasn’t started and with a completion date five months away. That’s a tight timeline!
