  1. This is probably that drone flyover. https://fb.watch/v/rllPGAOv/ Below are more recent images.
  2. I guess that's fine as long as they have a full bath and at least a kitchenette. Please, no more community bathrooms.
  3. So these units must be about 400sf basic hotel room style.
  4. Is this one student per unit or are there several beds in one unit? I assume one unit is one apartment.
  5. I'm not crazy about all those trees left in front of the medical school. It makes the grand entrance not so grand if you can't see the building.
  6. I think students will not be able to afford these $145,000 tiny condos. I suppose investors could buy them up and rent them out to students.
  7. Looking at the construction pics above, there seems to be a change. The garage is now one level instead of two shown in the rendering. I assume some residents will park along the street. 😒
  8. "3611 Drew Street is a remodel/addition to an existing structure. The original structure was a single story daycare center. The goal of the project is to convert the existing building into 20 micro-loft apartments. The average square footage of each apartment is 300 SF and includes a full size bath and fully equipped kitchen." These units are within walking distance of the University of Houston and judging by the size of the units, they will be geared toward students. https://www.drafthousedesign.studio/3611-drew-street https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/TABS/Projects/TABS2021008213
  9. It appears that Bank of America will open a branch bank in the retail space on the first level of The Icon. I assume the garage will be used for customer parking. Also a new Frost bank recently opened a few blocks south on Scott. https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/TABS/Projects/TABS2021005861
  10. Did work stop on the medical school? I thought there would be vertical columns by now since it started before the law school.
  11. The buildings on the block of Scott St between Drew St and Tuam have been cleared and a fence put around the entire block. This is my guess and it's 2 blocks north if the Icon.
  12. They have recently finished a new 5 level garage next to the law center so I doubt they make it a parking lot. After demolishing the old law center, there will be a big hole in the ground. My guess is that they will make a small park with trees, a pond and ducks. Being disguised as a park and pond, its real purpose is to be a retention pond to help with flooding. It would fit well with the campus green plans. Just my guess.
  13. I have not heard what they will do with the old law center. Half of the structure is below ground and floods all the time so I'm sure they will not re-purpose it. They will probably demolish it but there will be a gigantic hole there to backfill with dirt.
  14. I assume the orange structure in the law school pic, is the base for the tower crane.
