  1. I think UH will get the funding especially under Dr. Khator's leadership. I would never bet against her.
  2. It must be an earlier version of Tower 5040 because: 1. Left of it is the Beale Village and the exact bayou curve from that vantage point. 2. It looks too expensive for UH housing design. 3. UH student housing will not have balconies or swimming pools. 4. UH intends to replace Moody Towers with affordable student housing which is what Moody Towers is. 5. Mostly all private student housing says "number of beds" in published articles.
  3. The Matrix are $120,000 condos unless it has been repurposed as private student housing.
  4. I really do appreciate electricity but power lines and their poles are so ugly. I wish we could put the lines underground but I guess that would be too expensive. πŸ˜•
  5. Why are some buildings constructed will all concrete and others are all steel like this one?
  6. In the UH President's Fall Address, Renu Khator mentioned that the medical research facility will be built in the Texas Medical Center or next to the new college of medicine building on campus. https://uh.edu/president/communications/fall-address/2021/
  7. The UH new building may be part of the new TMC3 which is the massive research campus near the Texas Medical Center. All the other Houston medical schools are part of it so I suppose UH will be also. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/real-estate/article/TMC3-a-massive-biomedical-research-campus-at-16423937.php#photo-21414206
  8. I know they already built out some floors in Health Science building 2 to start the college of medicine for 2 years until the medical school building is complete. The new medical school building will be ready Fall 2022.
  9. Is this medical research facility the college of medicine building under construction now or is this a new building yet to be built. If it is a new building, I haven't heard any news of it.
  10. Trees serve a great purpose and are beautiful but we won't be able to enjoy the beauty of the building because of the trees in front of the medical school. I wish they could have arranged them differently or have smaller ones.
  11. I'm not crazy about the mix color scheme which makes it look like a cheap motel but I'll wait for the finished product before passing judgment. They're using 2 different colors of the same color. Brown on brown, beige on beige. Oh and let's slap on a few white bricks in the corner. Yes it is an improvement to the neighborhood, but I think they’re trying to hurt my eyes. πŸ˜†
  12. This is probably that drone flyover. https://fb.watch/v/rllPGAOv/ Below are more recent images.
  13. I guess that's fine as long as they have a full bath and at least a kitchenette. Please, no more community bathrooms.
  14. So these units must be about 400sf basic hotel room style.
  15. Is this one student per unit or are there several beds in one unit? I assume one unit is one apartment.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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. πŸ˜’
  19. "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
  20. 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
