  1. B-I-G's first Texas project.... very impressive. Love this design and you can see their methodical approach in its design.
  2. They've already bury themselves into Spring - that ship sailed a couple of years ago. Hopefully they give some thought into establishing a significant presence ITL, though. HPE Labs at the ion or something.
  3. you're discounting the amount of debt, maintenance and upkeep owning a home requires. pay rent, live where you want, and take that down payment and invest it. doesn't work for everyone but it definitely works for a lot of people.
  4. Agreed. It's stately, for lack of a better word. Something that I think works quite well in the Museum District.
  5. they've signed a lease for the eastern corner w a punch bowl social-type entertainment concept. can't remember the name.
  6. I'd support a redevelopment here if it meant street and infrastructure upgrades to westheimer and streets like mcduffie, harold, kipling, hazard, etc. It's incredible to think the city has allowed this area, now officially a very high rent, high profile, cultural and mini-economic engine, to deteriorate to the condition that it has. "Gross negligence" is a term I would consider applicable at this point.
  7. agree wholeheartedly. love that design exactly for that reason. which isn't to say i'm not happy w the design chosen.
  8. what these comments ignore is one itsy bitsy minor point - economics. you want to know why this is located where it is and not "near downtown"? money. go look at what dirt is trading for "near downtown" and compare it to this. it's easy to bemoan something when it isn't your money but the cost difference is massive. and you know who would bare the brunt of those increased costs? the cash-strapped startup community this city is desperately trying to foster. instead of complaining that this doesn't meet some subjective aesthetic or location criteria, how about we support our still t
  9. from the website it seemed as if the "streets" moniker referred solely to this particular retail component, no?
  10. tech is a broad term but it's the perfect type of tenant for this kind of development. don't think this is a nab from another city as i'm pretty sure they have an existing presence here but i could be wrong. either way it's a great anchor office tenant.
  11. no need to argue about the merits of this design, this won't be it. this was simply a proposal. carry on.
  12. well said and i agree. nothing about this site plan seems overly ambitious other than the overall # of mixed use components, but the design and scale seems plenty achievable. it certainly has a BIG vibe to it, especially the schematics, but also seems very approachable. I also think it would play off hsu's design at montrose collective very well. fingers crossed the project ends up as shown or a very similar facsimile thereof.
