  1. The ceilings are enormous. Maybe 25' or more. Can't wait to see it all shined up. The build out is going to be sick!
  2. Nah, food hall will be at the corner of Main and Rusk, the original Sakowitz space. It's gonna be gooooorgeous!
  3. Any idea what's being built here? (This is just east of the main Hardy Yards site along Maury Street between Burnett and Leona: https://www.google.com/maps/place/1498+Maury+St,+Houston,+TX+77020/@29.7745499,-95.3507772,18z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x8640b92ad6f2502d:0x800a1d7798380771!8m2!3d29.7740896!4d-95.3496499
  4. There's gonna be a parking garage built next to this.
  5. I don't understand this renovation at all. While the interior probably improved, the exterior is way worse! Still can't believe how horrible Studio Red's addition is to the building. So out of scale, such bad material choice. Add colorful LEDs to the mix and you have yourself and hot mess!
  6. Another bland, personality-less re-skinning.
  7. I love it! Looks very downtown LA to me. Modern, Minimal, and beautiful. It's about time we start celebrating some of our Modernist heritage!
  8. Well said, shasta. Very slow process, but downtown leaders have been at it since '95/'96, so 20 years now. Numerous efforts by the Downtown District have focused on retail. After numerous starts and stops and failed attempts, though, they finally realized residential was the key, thus the Downtown Living Initiative was created. Back when Sakowitz, Foley's, Woolworths, etc. were located downtown, Houston was a much more centralized city with downtown being the center of everything, including retail activity. In the '50s and '60s, the 'burbs in Houston (and the rest of the country) really
  9. You don't know what you're talking about.
  10. This has probably been mentioned, but ran across this the otha' day: I don't know much about the project, just saw it. Looks like they're trying to expand the world's finest under-freeway amusement park!
  11. I was at Permitting last week and saw rolls and rolls of plans with the name "Kirby Collection" scrolled on them piled up in the waiting room. They must have had a dozen expeditors running around to different depts..
  12. I thought I'd never say anything like this, but, in the case of "Tranquility Park," I think that site would actually be better utilized as a residential tower or mixed use building. City Hall's park is close to being wonderful. Only problem is, it's only partially surrounded by activity. For urban parks to be truly wonderful, I think, they need to have great design and they need to be almost completely surrounded by users that need a green space. Otherwise, homeless are just going to hang out there. I'm also never a fan of parks separated by streets. In this 17-block area, I think downtown s
  13. The 80's is back and has been for a while now, buddy. Where you been?!? Plus, what year was the GRB built?
