  1. Hanover has 10 + story buildings in Rice Village, West Gray, two in BLVD Place, and is building along Allen Parkway. One of their towers would look great by Market Square or Discovery Green. I'd be ok with a 55 story giant from these guys.
  2. I'm so glad this building is being repurposed but holy moly, they need a designer. Just checked out the website and the renderings/photos look so dated. It's mid 1990s in there.
  3. You bring substance and have a proven track record. You could be a lot ruder (you're not rude at all) and you'd still be my new favorite poster.
  4. Just googled Skanska residential. Mostly midrise but a new mixed-use high rise in Seattle is going up. Their projects look safe. Nothing bad but nothing great.
  5. I'm old. I went to college before the amenity race took off. My freshman year all-male dorm had cinder block walls. Pretty sure they just used a firehose to wash the joint when Spring term was over. Sophomore dorm wasn't much better but there were coed bathrooms. Junior year I "won" a lottery and got a newer dorm (from the 70s) that had bedroom suites. Two doubles and two singles that shared a bathroom and a common room that had one couch and a table. That was considered luxury.
  6. Calhoun Lofts was built by the university and is university owned. These new apartments are off campus and privately owned. You don't make money off of student apartments by using expensive materials considering they'll be trashed in short order by people pissing off of balconies and setting fires in the halls as pranks.
  7. I grew up over in tanglewood off of Woodway but we went to church at Palmer in Hermann Park. Every Sunday meant Butera's or Felix's for lunch. I am old.
  8. Is that a Magnolia Hotel possibly? Looks great. Great location for live + work spaces especially with the new HEB open.
  9. Count me as one for team glass. That said, this tower has the potential to easily be the best residential tower in town in terms of architecture in my mind. The bar is low.
  10. I am. Job moved me out here about a year and a half ago but my whole family is still in Texas so back and forth a lot.
  11. The floor plans are not great. I toured right before I moved from Southampton to L.A. and the units are just odd. The views are not great unless you are on the top two floors and even then they are moo. Quite honestly, the interior finished at the apartment across the street seemed nicer.
  12. The Morrissey interviews from Record Rack can be found on youtube. The anchors having no idea what to make of the scene make me laugh every time.
  13. Has anyone found the height for this one? I'm hoping it gets in the 500 foot range as a grand hotel lobby floor plus for-sale condos tend to have higher ceiling heights than rentals. The AIG tower needs a tall companion.
