  1. 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 than I.

  2. 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.

  3. 49 minutes ago, thedistrict84 said:

    If you are in a row of vertical single-family homes, with no part of any other home above yours, you are in a townhome development, not condos.

    Condos typically feature units above each other and common areas, similar to multi-family apartments.

    (Have to draw the line somewhere lol)

    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.

  4. 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.

  5. The Central Bank branch on Milam closed on January 8, 2021 (according to their website). The gates around the parking lot have not been opened since then. Not surprisingly, the local homeless population have moved into the covered area under the drive thru.

    Does anyone know if a new project is coming along or is this just a case of a bank closing a branch?
