  1. Yeah it's always in the top 3 performing in the entire company. Crazy anyone would propose trading a Nieman Marcus for a Dillards lol...
  2. Actually the government encouraged the invasion as well as the invasion of the SAMBIL mall they expropriated a few blocks away.
  3. I think the grand arch building in La Defense aligned with the Arc de Triomphe is pretty "iconic" in my opinion. Besides a few buildings in NYC and maybe Sears Tower, no building/skyline in the US is so probably instantly recognizable to most people with interest in architecture.
  4. During the input process from the community parking was a big issue, especially since it will have a public library in it.
  5. I think it looks elegant and clean, I don't think their target demographic is looking for "piazzazz" outside their apartment.
  6. I love Van LeeuWen, it's everywhere in NYC, they have a really good pistachio flavor... Their shops generally have really nice designs
  7. Existing traffic patterns being the pattern of having no traffic at all lol...
  8. The Fiesta was already tagged in giant letters facing the freeway which is crazy.
  9. I've seen the master plan and there are multiple towers. The economy literally is in free fall, we are lucky things aren't paralyzed at this point across town.
  10. If those lots are reserved for future towers why is that bothersome?
  11. It was doing well while maintained but then the owner obviously wanted the place vacated so stopped maintaining and went downhill. (Not saying good or bad, just answering question)
  12. It's literally just an office to sell AdWords lol. Guess it's a small start atleast...
  13. I saw the excavator there last night. That old gas station would have made such a cool ice-house lol.
  14. Largely peaceful *** Did you see the looted Veriozon downtown and the attempt to loot Forever 21 in Gallaria? Stop trying to tell people how to protect their own property. The boards can come down when the store manager of each store feels SAFE. You think they like loosing all this business with the boards? They are literally fearful for their livelihood.
  15. Did you see the amount of high-end shopping centers looted last week? Scottsdale fashion Square in Phoenix , Lenox Square Atlanta , The Bravern in Seattle , SoHo in NYC, Nieman Marcus and forty five ten in Dallas?
  16. I think this one will be a music venue but I do know a techno/house club is probably going in another project nearby lol.
  17. I know, this is literally one of the craziest things I've ever heard on here. Literally a place with one of the highest purchasing power indexes in the United States needs more free stuff for people with iphones and nice cars. People here have clearly never seen what real poverty looks like in a global context
  18. That's what one would think but it's not how it plays out 99% of the time with the selection process being extremely un-transparent. I can't believe this is still an idea in 2020, especially in a place as affordable as Houston. There are large one bedrooms going for 800 in some areas like woodland heights which are expensive. Btw it starts with this idea and then people start demanding that they be equal units or otherwise they are demeaning to the people inside them.
  19. I can for sure because that's exactly what happens in NYC and makes it so expensive for anyone trying to buy a market rate apartment... Why doesn't everyone ask about modifying existing regulations to help lower cost? Not every apartment needs to be so big, have multiple parking spots etc. Cost could be lowered by not having so many building standards.
  20. It isn't legal which is why the local workforce argument never works lol, and I promise these people won't be taking the bus which is why the project will most likely have the same size garage as any other project would. I think it would be visionary if they didn't have a garage to make this argument stronger so people who actually need to be close and use public transportation would actually live there.
  21. Can you give an example of that here because they can never seem to explain how exactly "local" workforce people are going to be given those units versus people who work in other sides of town. All for putting things in high opportunity zones but claiming it is for local maids and gardeners is a farce.
  22. A Belmond flag hotel in DT Hoston lol. Oil is at 0 now... But yes our current admin had done a nightmare of a job attracting new companies here not involved with energy. It's painful to watch Dallas and Austin speed ahead in this regard.
  23. You sound ridiculous and assume people just have millions laying around to spread their eggs around. There are many small business on the road dude. It's not a subsidy either, the city needs to maintain our infrastructure that we pay taxes for.
  24. I don't know if these two cross streets could even support many more large structures without some sort of major reconstruction or public transportation improvements...
