  1. That second photo really lets you see how it will expand the skyline north
  2. Why are we talking about walking away on this one?
  3. They are geotechnical crews. They test the makeup and compaction of the soil. This will let the builders know what type of foundation support is required for the type of project.
  4. The Post Oak bus lanes still haven't opened. I doubt this is dead, just very much delayed.
  5. That is a shame. Glad you took these pics. I had an idea in my head what this development looked like and it was way off. I was somewhat interested in checking it out but will hold off for now.
  6. Wow that post-industrial building is amazing. Save it for the beautiful support structure alone. It looks like it is being worked on and could turn out nice. The renderings had me thinking this place looked a lot different then it does but maybe it'll be closer to that in 3-5 years.
  7. The parking podium had a little more detail to them on this angle in the rendering. Looking very RD. I know the West Gray and east side are better but the west side is bland.
  8. Oh man those structures are beautiful. Wish I knew they existed a few years ago when I was living in $1000/month garden apartment. Great location and so unique. Hate to see them go.
  9. Quite a long name. Are they hoping people will call it "The Streets"? I will call it The Streets of Buffalo Bayou Park Near the Corner of Allen Parkway and Shepard, Next to That Other Similar Development That Has a Different Name.
  10. Such agreements are negotiated to ensure that a developer delivers community benefits, like hiring, inclusion of affordable housing or funding for community programs, in exchange for residents’ support of the project and developments in or near their community, according to the Kinder Institute for Urban Research’s Third Ward Policy and Program Landscape Report. This main thing I could see helping is the hiring part. If this project displaced houses or other community centers then I get it but this is taking away Sears and surface lots. The benefit is pushing out drug dealers. Though who knows where they will chill now. Fiesta would have been seen as a loss but the new HEB in the Third Ward should help offset that for residents.
  11. Looks like they have built 15 floors. Just about a third of the way up. The two Hines towers, plus their last one are really changing the skyline.
  12. I lived by this corner for three years and this is amazing. The corner is a mess and ugly. Went to the Specs and Half Price Books there all the time. Even the emergency center a couple times. It is such an ugly corner and this would really help. Now fix the Valero corner.
  13. I thought the same. Left them with views and blocked the ugly white wall. Win-win.
  14. I've been to that recreational area a few times. Usually I see kids hanging out there during school hours screwing around, once a guy smoking a joint with his toddler, and people just sitting in their cars.
