  1. From CoStar in an article regarding McNair's recently announced Westchase multifamily/active lifestyle development on the old Dow Chemical site:
  2. They don't know yet so everyone needs to have a little patience on this one. They're very actively engaging various stakeholders in the community, meaning they're taking a very long-term approach to the site.
  3. Brookfield acquired this property when it acquired Park Towers a few years ago. They almost immediately sold Park Towers, though.
  4. It's decisively their least "BIG" project, that's for sure.
  5. this is a very handsome building. excellent addition to the skyline.
  6. B-I-G's first Texas project.... very impressive. Love this design and you can see their methodical approach in its design.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

"Gross negligence" is a term I would consider applicable at this point.
  12. agree wholeheartedly. love that design exactly for that reason. which isn't to say i'm not happy w the design chosen.
  13. 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
