  1. Not true, if there wasn't a parking minimum, their design would have been completely different. Since you've scoped out the other X projects in the nation, you probably already knew only ours and Tampa's building have exposed garage podium. Im not completely against exposed garage podiums, but 10 floors of just concrete? Idk how thats seen as "eclectic." It's obvious most of us are in favor of this project, the only draw back some of us have is the 10 floors of just cement. The building RIGHT in front of it is going to have a view of.... a garage. The buildings near it... again just a cement garage. What would have been eclectic is if they decided to paint it completely with some kind of artwork, put some interesting light feature, or cover it up with literally ANYTHING. Just my opinion
  2. Great news! https://communityimpact.com/houston/heights-river-oaks-montrose/transportation/2022/05/19/greater-heights-super-neighborhood-council-to-write-letter-in-support-of-11th-street-bikeway/
  3. Wow, this portion of Buffalo Bayou is soo pretty! It looks like a full blown river! I can bet most Houstonians will be mind blown when they see this project finish. I hope more dense projects take place along this side of Buffalo Bayou to give us our own "River Walk"
  4. I think the designs were scaled back, the google street view image is from December 2020, now it looks like there's another permit for renovations. New facade design is from an updated brochure on loop net (4/15/22) https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/4245-4265-Richmond-Ave-Houston-TX/12961374/
  5. Building permit issued for the restaurant
  6. Roof terrace remodel, I wonder if this means there's going to be a restaurant or something on the roof.

    511 Main St.

    This building needed some serious TLC, so this is good news.
  8. Aw :( was hoping for something else here. Hopefully its a nice mechanic shop lol

  10. There's a proposal for Riverside Terrace to become a Historic district, but some residents are not happy with that idea. I thought this proposal would help preserve the area while also slowing gentrification. https://abc13.com/riverside-terrace-third-ward-historic-district-proposal-civic-association/11842455/
  11. I could have sworn this already had a thread but could not find it. This warehouse will be converted into a bar. Apparently it's already under way per houstonculturemap, slated to be completed by this fall. I attached link for all the details. https://houston.culturemap.com/news/restaurants-bars/05-12-22-heights-social-1213-w-20th-st-drift-bar-open-champagne-service-brunch-cocktails/
  12. https://communityimpact.com/houston/heights-river-oaks-montrose/development/2020/05/15/with-demolition-of-former-smith-wollensky-building-highland-village-project-moves-forward/ Per this article, the building will house a Lululemon "experiential store" which has yoga/ HIIT classes, locker rooms, meditation room, a cafe/restaurant, as well as apparel. I believe they're only occupying 2 floors; I'm not sure whats going on with the other 2 floors (I attached old permits). Their Chicago experiential store is their largest at 20,000 sqft, so the permit for 20,000 sqft makes sense. Not sure about the other 20,000 sfqt. This permit is for the entire building This permit is for Lululemon This is what their Chicago experiential store looks like for reference
  13. Unfortunately I couldn't get a picture (per usual), but this thing is MASSIVE now. You can see this building all the way from Weslayan!
  14. Idk if I'm fantasizing, but is anyone else seeing a consistent skyline form between Uptown and Downtown? Uptown to Greenway started to fill up with new residential buildings near ROD to 2929 Weslayan. Greenway to Montrose has its fair share of high-rises, from the cluster of buildings near Allen parkway to the cluster off of Kirby. Montrose to midtown/ museum district/ downtown is filling up nicely as well. I know its not a back to back skyline but the gap has been looking smaller and smaller over the last few years! Imagine if we can get a super tall observatory near Kirby & Westheimer (think space needle). We would have a 360 skyline view from that point!
