  1. Chronicle Building; 710 Preston St. Redevelopment by Hines

    The views of 700 Louisiana will be amazing from the west facing side.
  2. Has anyone been to the HEB in Gulf Gate? I was at the Home Depot there and decided to check it out. Had about 75% of the stuff I needed. I guess I’ll have to go to the one on W Alabama.
  3. I’m happy to revive a +5 year old thread as Combat Kroger is being renovated tonight. I went in today as a new east ender and I as happy they had half the stuff I needed, but didn’t live up to it’s name. There was a Mercedes and Range Rover in the parking lot. I am very interested in the spiritual apothecary across the street & Super Happy Funland.
  4. Museum of Fine Arts Houston Expansion

    It’s certainly an upgrade from the current IKEA cafeteria.
  5. McNair Mixed-Use: ~6-acres at 3200 Post Oak Blvd

    Projects like this barely saw the light of day during the last oil boom. What gives now? Am I out of the loop? I mean, I technically live out of the loop.
  6. Beltway 8 / Ship Channel Bridge Replacement

    Work is under way, columns are being installed on both sides of the channel (not the main ones).
  7. Australian Developer Planning Three High-Rises for Midtown

    The cranes are quite visible on the 59 Exit from 45. Dare I say it will almost be a shame the view won’t be as expansive once these midtown towers get some floors in.
  8. The Revere at River Oaks

    Acrylic Coffee table with a ******* Chevron Throw pillow? Oof! Building looks great though!
  9. Vantage Med Center: New Highrise at Cambridge and Holcombe

    It’s open. I believe they are still offering 3 months “off”. Which is probably why the 2B / 2B starts at 3K.
  10. I’m sure he’s in an echo chamber. I always marveled at the gargoyles from the W Gray post office when I was a kid. Our city is really a cross cross roads of different influences. Apart from any “signature” building in our city, I can see some easily being swapped in different regions of our country and bet that the majority of people wouldn’t blink twice at the change. For example every Greenway Plaza building could be traded with buildings in greater Los Angeles. Or even the Chase Tower & 3 Allen Center in central Tokyo/Yokohama. I can admire the mix he brings to Houston. If anyone had to bring in the Florida Pandhandle, I’m glad it’s him.
  11. Alltmont Building @ 311 Travis Street

    Name calling is not cool. However, if you make silly statements and ask silly questions, you may get silly answers.
  12. Let’s keep it on topic and civil, thanks.
  13. Australian Developer Planning Three High-Rises for Midtown

    Don’t tell them about SSP. Maybe from now on we just link the renderings and ask swamplot to only report on tree removal?
  14. I’m corn-fused. the beginning of the article mentions the hotel on top of the garage portion, but then mentions it going on top of the building itself.
