  1. I couldn't find a thread about this block (just north of the Downtown YMCA) but feel free to move it as necessary. A new fence just went up for the entire block (Main, Leeland, Milan, Pease). It could just be that the old fence needed to go, or more optimistically, something is brewing.
  2. Reminds me of the Stalinka Apartments in Moscow. https://images.app.goo.gl/pjr8ARoPcKz9Gnzp6
  3. A new chain link fence is being installed around the currently unfenced - and homeless encampment - at this location.
  4. 3824 Fulton Street at Beggs I passed this a couple of weeks ago on one of my walks. As far as I can tell - not much - it'll be 18 units of residential.
  5. I'm sure the engine SP 982 wouldn't have it any other way.
  6. I didn't see any reference above to the Downtown District plan for this area (Warehouse District Vision Plan) http://www.downtowndistrict.org/programs/planning-capital-projects/ and then scroll down to to PUBLIC WORKSHOP #2 PRESENTATION Most (all?) of their plan is based on a post North Houston Highway world. The thread's subject property is in the middle of their proposals. There's is even a survey if you want to drop your 2 cents. I can't get past my overwhelming objections to the highway plan to give their proposals a fair review. But hopefully, you are a better person t
  7. I have found that early architectural renderings are seldom reality.
  8. Maybe... (The picture was taken from indoors behind a window which was reflecting the outside lights)
  9. It's open (with an ambulance and HPD first in line)
  10. Looks like a party or something inside (taken about a week ago, before the freeze)
  11. I think the green walls is the Fanin facing side. The complete build out will have a new building in front of that. I went to the sales office a while back and they described the future there as "mid-sized" but when pressed they admitted they didn't really know the actual plan. My guess is the green is more artistic license than an actual design element.
  12. Condo is not an architectural term. It's an ownership term. A condo can be a single family house, a row house or an apartment. Or even a commercial structure or a multistory parking garage. It is routinely misused and misunderstood.
  13. I think I prefer the trees
  14. Thanks. I can now turn my fantasies back towards Claudia Shiffer 🙂
  15. This project was using the long vacant bank across Travis for a field office etc. They seemed to have left that space as the fence was taken down and the building closed up. The Fairfield project is still a ways from topping out. Is this usual practice to close/move a field office as work continues? I really don't know. Or is something else going on? My fantasy is that the Holiday Inn site is getting ready for something. I stress the fantasy aspect of that statement.
