  1. He'd be insane to not build residential immediately. That gives me pause. The last thing we need is another Green Street. I cannot believe those morons nixed the residential component and went with an boutique office building instead.
  2. The height mystery seems solved. This looks like 26 residential floors over at least 10 floors of garage space. This is much closer to a 40 story tower than a 30.
  3. The real crime is the surface parking lot taking up a fourth of the lot. Yuck.
  4. There's a Lexington Street in Upper Kirby/Montrose that runs from Chew Park/Dunlavy to Greenbrier. But it's adjacent to the feeder but I guess that's similar to their projects in "Westcreek" (Galleria east of the Loop).
  5. Are we getting a spire or anything with a non-flat roof? Recent 30 story residential buildings are usually around 350-400 feet.
  6. These are great but I especially love the MFA with downtown in the distance. Wowzers.
  7. My Mom lives close by. She has home health care now so cannot host me and there's a need for some new hotel blood in the area. I've chosen the Med Center for the most part because of the better/newer options. Greenway options are a bit stale and you'd think with the growth of Upper Kirby and proximity to Greenway, Rice, Uptown, Museums, River Oaks, Montrose, that the right brand could pull a nice combo of business and leisure travel.
  8. The LA Times has a really cool map of LA County density broken up by neighborhood and all the various cities and towns in the County. Koreatown, about two miles South of me, has over 42,000 per square mile. My hood, Los Feliz, is around 13,500.
  9. Tower 5040 is a private development. It's apartments geared towards students. I'm still thinking this is a possible Moody Towers replacement because it speaks of beds (dorms) rather than apartments.
  10. It's interesting to see a building marketed to college students with actual balconies. Drunk students are dumb. I used to be one.
  11. Not having Uptown connected to the light rail is a travesty. It's 100% Culberson's fault and the big money donors who bought him off.
  12. Those poor houses that will back up to that exposed garage in the back.
