    4411 San Felipe: 8 Story Office Building

    I like the "view" from an 8 story building and the high rise life and high rise view hashtags

    1916 West Gray - multi-family

    After seeing no movement on this site for months, they have been onsite the last couple weeks moving slowly but moving. Maybe this will wrap up this year.
  3. I may be wrong but the "yellow cranes" in the back of the second picture is a separate building. I think that is a football (soccer) stadium). The angle makes them look like one structure.

    Texas Tower (Block 58) by Hines, 47-Story Office Tower

    The two new Hines towers are really going to transform the skyline. Coming in town from I-10 east and 45 south will look really neat.

    4411 San Felipe: 8 Story Office Building

    I love that it hides two parking garages at once

    East River - KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    That is just a construction stormwater permit. Means they have authorization to start disturbing soils and they have a plan in place to prevent sediment or contamination from discharging offsite during construction. The permit has to be in place from the initial point of land disturbance and ends when the have stabilized the area using grass or concrete etc. If you could see the reference SWPPP you would be able to see their construction timeline and what is included in this portion of the construction. Of course they could have a poorly written SWPPP that provides no details.
  7. Very cool looking building. 17 stories is still a good height. This area is getting dense.

    Sunrise Montrose: 8-stories, 240 Units

    Oh cool. I was wondering why it wasn't just being knocked over but could see activity.
  9. Haha they were pretty bad and lazy. Not saynig I liked them but it wasn't this white wall. Either way RD has no idea what to do with garages. He's slowly improving. At least the new development on San Felipe will had Arabellas white wall on the east side.
  10. This one at least used to have some gray art murals on the side. They got taken off after the leaking or whatever issues and they resided the garage. Now its lost the little character it had.

    Sunrise Montrose: 8-stories, 240 Units

    With this building and the old boat shop at the corner of Montrose and West Grey slowly coming down, U-Plumb It is about to be sandwiched between to developments.
  12. They are hauling a lot of dirt out. I really didn't expect this one to start so quick after the demo.

    Avondale Highline: Proposed Multifamily @ 214 Avondale

    I agree that parking there is already awful. You are lucky to find one street spot that isn't permitted.

    Avondale Highline: Proposed Multifamily @ 214 Avondale

    The parking is typical for old affordable units in this area. I had to pay for one of the limited parking spots at my old place near Cherryhurst. This part of Avondale has some really old apts that need to be replaced so I do like that they are keeping rent prices in mind.

    3300 Main by PM Realty Group: 30-story, 336-unit high-rise

    It is crazy how fast Caydon went up in comparison this this one. Caydon really went after it.

    5656 San Felipe: New 17-Story Condo High-Rise

    This continues to fill in San Felipe with high rises. Nice to see one on the north side that far west.

    Fantastic project

    The Regalia at the Park: 100 Crawford

    An ESA must have been done or the owner is really stupid. USTs show up easy in these surveys unless it went unregistered and wasn't from a historical gas station where you can assume all USTs leak. If the company that did the ESA missed it, then they can be held responsible. Or the owner could have been informed and said screw a Phase II to save a few bucks hoping the contamination was minimal and are now paying the price. Having seen ESAs from that part of town, it is a good bet you'll hit contaminated soil.

    Randall Davis Condo 3723 Westheimer Road

    The podium is very RD but I don't hate it quite as much with the glass and breaking up the wall to look like paneling. I look forward to renderings of the rest of the tower.

    The Sophie: 42-unit, 7-story Condo @6017 Memorial

    Tower crane was removed over the weekend
  22. The real question now is if and when construction will start
  23. All buildings are now down. Just piles of debris remain.

    Australian Developer Planning Three High-Rises for Midtown

    Same thing happened on The Post Oak one day. All the workers had a stand down and gathered in the parking lot and the HFD did something out of my view. No visible smoke. My guess was a small fire from equipment and that is just the standard procedure until an all clear is given. My guess is the same for this one. Treat it like you would any fire but was probably something small and workers are not supposed to attempted put anything out for the most part.
