  1. The Allen: Allen Pkwy/Gillette Mixed Use 6 acres

    That's a shame. That plot of land will still benefit from infill and it's good news to hear things seem to be moving forward, but I'm definitely concerned with how it will look now. Hopefully, they provide updated renderings come the time that leasing office opens.
  2. The Allen: Allen Pkwy/Gillette Mixed Use 6 acres

    So does that mean that: (1) We will see a shorter/redesigned version of the tower or (2) Cheaper materials will be used or (3) All of the above?
  3. Vacant lot south of Robbins Bros.

    I wish there was a rendering or something of what's going up on this site! Either way, exciting to see the steel go up so quickly.
  4. Battlesteins building purchased

    ^ This. Yes please.
  5. 40-Story High-Rise Development at 1660 Post Oak Blvd.

  6. The Allen: Allen Pkwy/Gillette Mixed Use 6 acres

    I don't think anyone has confirmed yet, but it almost certainly looks like a leasing office.
  7. Baba Yega has new owners? New construction at Gray and STanford.

    The article ended on a hopeful note saying the owners plan to reopen sometime "next year". But that's about as vague as it gets.
  8. 708 / 712 Main Renovation - The Jones on Main

    A fair argument for sure. A lot of it does come down to location and convenience, but at the end of the day, the only way these food venues can do business is if customers value the food more than they value their money. Time will only tell how successful Finn is. I'll have to swing by sometime this weekend and see for myself.

    Swamplot article with new images of the concrete base: http://swamplot.com/a-first-concrete-step-toward-building-that-mixed-use-complex-at-allen-pkwy-and-gillette-st/2018-12-05/ At least there's some activity on the site.
  10. Grocers Supply Co. - 3131 Holcombe Blvd

    Not to get anybody too excited, but here's the conceptual rendering from the link Naviguessor posted above:
  11. 708 / 712 Main Renovation - The Jones on Main

    That guy is the dictionary definition of a troll
  12. Hines Block 42 Residential High-Rise: 46-stories

    Despite the changes, this is still a pretty beautiful tower. It'll be a great addition to this area of town!
  13. 3015 Bagby St. - More Midtown Infill

    When did it ever close? At least from Google it indicates they are still open.
  14. The Boulevard Project

    ^ Thank you for such a valuable contribution. (Also, haven't trees coexisted with the blvd arches for years already? Is this supposed to be new insight?)
  15. Town & Country/City Centre *update*

    New article on Swamplot detailing the proposed Marathon Oil tower that will sit on that empty lot between CityCentre and Katy Freeway: http://swamplot.com/marathon-oil-plans-westward-migration-to-citycentres-flattened-town-country-outskirts/2018-11-30/ Below is a rendering:
