  1. The scaffolding has been coming down slowly the last month or more. The Main Street (light rail) side scaffolding is still up. Ii don't know about the ground floor commercial. The leasing office is open and the other spaces seem to me to be tenant areas (mail boxes, community rooms, that sort of thing) when I compared it to the apartment building across the street. The park is beautiful and the designers and buildings deserve a pat on the back for their work. Now it just needs to be maintained at a high level. I'm new to Houston and originally from NYC and a big fan of street front commercial, but considering all of the vacant street front commercial around this area (and others), would it matter if there was more street front commercial added in this development? I know the area is changing dramatically with all of the new construction, but I'd like to see the existing commercial space absorbed before more is thrown on the market. But I'm new in these parts, and I've been wrong before, so maybe I am wrong again. Every market is unique. What I'd really like is some larger commercial development added to Midtown (retail stores like Target or similar, BedBathBeyond type store, multiplex movie theaters, sporting goods, office supply, etc). That is what I think is missing now.
  2. The article was written by a NYTimes staff writer and was originally published in the Times. Here is the original link. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/13/business/post-office-redevelopment.html The 'golden age' quote came from someone at Lovet (Kirby Liu). It's not an editorial comment from the Times. The Watertown newspaper just carried it as a syndicated story. As far as I know, it has no other relationship with the NYT.
  3. I wouldn't get too literal with the rendering. It's generally more of a conceptual and emotive image and not meant to be technical. There's a reason they don't give paint brushes to engineers.
  4. It has nothing to do with what I noticed a while back around the old Sears, but more rumors for the Wheeler Station area and other sites. http://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/real-estate/article/Innovation-Corridor-could-be-lasting-legacy-of-12529073.php
  5. I'm still new here so I apologize if this is in the wrong forum. I noticed this week that there is new fencing around the homeless "park" across from the now-closed Sears near Wheeler. In addition to that, the sidewalk adjacent to Sears is being ripped up. The link below is for a Rice study (the property owners) of the area for future development, but is anything happening now? http://swamplot.com/midtown-sears-closure-nets-rice-9-acres-near-the-wheeler-transit-center/2017-10-10/
  6. Based on Google, I'd put it at 1019 Robin Street valentine.pdf
  7. As someone looking to buy and move to Houston, I wonder why quality places like this are only residential. I think this would make a great condo for those with longer housing horizons.
