  1. Reminds me of the Ritz planned for BLVD Place last cycle here in town. Hope this tops 98 Red River, give Texas a better looking tallest.
  2. That's a shame. An equinox in this or general location would do wonders. The one in ROD is at the corner of traffic and rush hour. So many people want to join but hate the location (that live in Montrose/Midtown).
  3. Well, I know what I'll be doing. Report Tax Exempt Status Abuses to the IRS
  4. Wish they would get rid of the Giant looming flood flights , and update to something shorter and more modern. Nothing ruins the Sabine Street view like the giant power lines and flood lights.
  5. Hey Y'all, I don't know how accurate the source chart/numbers from CNN are, but the title says apprehended, *not* Mexico or Northern Triangle. It's to show the dramatic increase in crossings via persons originating from Nicaragua and anything south (especially Venezuela). Vs the raw numbers from the DHS site which look like a total number of persons, rather than excluding any country of origin. Anyways, back to the "scandal" of Hidalgo at hand.
  6. Take a drive down Richmond (starting at Kirby and heading West), and you'll get a sense this is very "Houston". I'm all for color and culture, but not every building needs to be a loud, eye-catching fuchsia. Allow the sky, trees, and flowers to frame structure.
  7. At least the pool is facing the south/west. Know some folks in La Colombe D'or and the pool isn't great after lunch time. Nice views though.
  8. It's yet another fortress along Allen Parkway. I understand what you're saying, but it's fashionable for Houston.
  9. Potential Customers are more likely to make impulsive decisions if their wheels are greased.
  10. Literally belongs in that part of town. It's a grid, close access to the park and alternative transport from cars.
  11. Not confused about what building you're referencing. Confused as to why you think this little infill building is worthy of ruining your photo. The patchy repair jobs on Memorial and giant garages in the background are more distracting.
  12. The largest automaker in the world, who also sold more vehicles than any other in the US, doesn't represent our car-centric & international city? You know they also build the Sequoia & Tundra in Texas, right? Feel like Toyota Center is more fitting than Minute Maid Park. Particularly since Coca-Cola closed their offices in Sugar Land to move them to Atlanta. But I agree with you that something Space related would be cool. Doubt it would happen. Hopefully it won't be "Landry's Center".
  13. Maybe 20-30 years ago Sheraton was nice. Have you been to the Sheraton Brookhollow? Lordy. Shame they're not changing the exterior. But the interior is what really matters. Looks like a cool bar.
  14. Where would they even propose this? Spring Creek? They should extend the Woodlands Parkway to meet up with 249.
  15. It's adjacent to suburban office campuses 🤷‍♂️. Not sure why they didn't include anything on the other side of Brays Bayou.
  16. Curious about this too. Have yet to see a completion date or any update after the remedial design community meeting a couple weeks ago EPA.GOV.
  17. Amegy & Aspire had a Hannover baby. I dig it. It's nice filler. Certainly cleaner and not cheap looking like most of the stuff we get. The views from the higher and south facing units will be amazing.
  18. Hotel ZaZa JW Marriott Downtown (If we're going for smaller Hotel with focus on service & art). Magnolia Hotel Hotel Derek Granduca The Housontian (Probably the least vibey of them all) Hotel Indigo Le Meridien C Baldwin - While not small, is arguably one of the most stylish renovated Hotels we have, and smaller than a few of the big ones. Heights House Boutique Hotel - "a small stylish hotel, typically one situated in a fashionable urban location". That's textbook. There's others I've seen online that go from 10-100 rooms, refurbished buildings, no flag or small chain, really depends on the person's own definition. However, all listed fit at least one. Point being, I would recommend all of them except maybe Heights House since it's the only one I haven't personally set foot in.
  19. I wouldn't bother replying if they refuse to even google search boutique Hotels in Houston. Sure a few have been bought by corporate, but there are really nice Hotels in Downtown and a very few in the Galleria area.
  20. It's strange to me the McNair Tower is on the potential Hotel Equinox/ROD, and that the Brava is taking over some Afton Oaks lots. Especially since both have full blown renderings on their actual locations. Also weird there's like a 432 Park Ave in between them in... West Oaks? The location for Memorial City North looks correct (given the building to the east is 10100 Katy Freeway).
  21. Strange. It is the Brava, and that's the bigger McNair Tower to the right.
