  1. I think it's worth mentioning right now that rates are so low for these big loans that a new office building can be pretty competitive price wise with the older ones. In other words, the companies are getting a huge upgrade in space while not necessarily getting a huge rent hike.
  2. Considering Rice raises the rent of everything they touch that seems highly unlikely... otherwise they would have savd the one in Rice Village
  3. Wow, that's a big deal considering there is no national bank in the area... will give it a nice urban feel.
  4. MD Anderson added several floors a few years ago to their main building, it was designed to be expanded as well.
  5. I don't like the design either and feel it totally turns away from the water versus opening up towards it. They should have built a corniche style road or plaza and oriented all the buildings towards the water which would have looked more natural. They tout so much things on urbanism and then build these bland boxes full of massive garages that look no different than Hardy Yards.
  6. Chicago literally is the personification of corruption with most of those expenditures going to public employee salaries. There are literally municipal tree trimmers who earn over 105,000 a year, so amount "spent" doesn't necessarily correlate with the quality of their parks.
  7. I'm racist being a person of color and actually living in 3rd ward?
  8. I own two properties on the street and no one wanted it renamed that I know along the street. I don't care, I'm just mentioning on how the city does whatever it wants anyways in the end.
  9. Maybe because it's name was changed illegally without the consent of property owners lol.
  10. We are in an election year and recession so it's kind of interesting people want huge projects built with these horrible fundamentals lols...
  11. Just because it's "standard" government abuse does not necessarily make it right lol...
  12. Sounds like the contractor charging thousands of dollars to fix a pothole is your problem and not the actual overpass lol... People actually use streets and highways. It's funny how upset people get when things don't fit their narrative. Btw, as a Houston resident and person who pays taxes, why shouldn't people be allowed to use it as a cut through? You make it sound illegal. People treat it like a on/off ramp because that is what is it. So if everywhere becomes a "neighborhood street", how exactly would you even move smoothly through Houston? Through our non-existent s
  13. This project would have been a disaster, amazing how fast things can pass without public input when they benefit very wealthy homeowners in a two block radius. You don't think that new park would have been more expensive to maintain than a basic overpass that survived 60 years without maintenance btw?
  14. Agreed, I think it's really beautiful architecturally and historically. Why does everyone want ever building to look the same?
