Pinto is not part of UT but it is owned by Ernest Cockrell, who is on the advisory board for UT Energy Institute. https://energy.utexas.edu/about/advisory-board/ernest-cockrell The article you linked is for 800 Middle St., which the Houston Housing Authority purchased form Pinto East End (Crockwell) in 2020 for around 15M. They had/have a deal in place with NRP Group to build what is called EADO 800. It looks like it will move forward.

  17. I believe the reason the developer and the General Contractor (Harvey) couldn't come to an agreement and the project being put on hold was because of the drawings. They are schematic at best and missing numerous details but they want to contract off of the set. Every contractor is going to add a considerable amount to their proposal just to cover themselves. Hopefully they are putting it on hold because a progressive set is being put together by the architect.
  18. All are 312 SF except the 3 ADA compliant units per floor, which are 382 SF, 473 SF, and 581 SF.
