  1. It’s not being torn down or replaced. It’s major improvements to where the other businesses were previously. A facelift of sorts. I’m addition, the new plat is filed for change of ownership and consolidation of previous lots.
  2. That is just paint and will probably be done last. If a local artist isn't brought in instead.
  3. This was designed without having to comply with the TOD and Walkable Places overlay. These were conscious decisions from Radom Capital, Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, and OJB Landscape Architects.
  4. My bad, I meant top two floors The glass is SunGuard SNX series if you want it for yourself!
  5. Just a sidenote, the library is only the first 2 floors. Additionally, Radom Capital is not building out the library--only the shell space. The City of Houston will be required to build out the interior of the library post-completion of the core and shell/
  6. Live Nation’s parking is reserved in the above ground area. The underground parking is run by Radom Capital so no need to freak out over Live Nation pricing.
  7. This is correct. Shared parking with the main building across the street. Office daytime use is balanced out with nighttime and weekend restaurant and retail uses. Fairly standard practice in mixed use developments.
  8. Two retail stores, one cafe or juice bar. Top two floors are the library. Library May have an outdoor deck on Level 3 that overlooks Grant.
  9. If you want to use it yourself it’s the Manganese Ironspot brick from Cloud Ceramics. Fairly cost competitive vs boring red brick.
  10. Complicated brick laying pattern here. Plus there is only brick on that stair tower so it doesn’t make sense to put scaffolding on the whole Crocker facade.
  11. It’s not the permitting or the cost. It’s solely the developers risk tolerance. Radom Capital definitely sees the payoff in leasable spaces if they spend money on good design. Rice Design Alliance Super in depth article on the project from Rice Design Alliance. 1689357034_MontroseCollectiveRisingRiceDesignAlliance.pdf
  12. Pretty sure it’s the Guardian SNX 62/27. Super clear but has a lot of reflection. I’ve used it on other projects and it looks the same.
  13. I think you're right about wait and see. The rest of the materiality of the building will make a big difference.
