    Not seeing any mention of Skanska, makes me hesitate to believe this is current.  Perkins Eastman and Madison Marquette partnered on District Wharf in DC, so unclear if this was drawn up for the previous owner.  This would be significant for the area so hoping this is accurate!

    That's a good way to get an answer quick...

    It's too bad (depends on your view, its also more opportunity) that - for now - most everything past Hardy Yards and to White Oak Music is basically dead with spotty barely afloat strip centers from the 80s and dilapidated buildings with a few regular homeless people camping out front on the other-side of the rail.  Hopefully that White Oak Development draws more attention to that otherwise forgotten portion of Main

    That says "infill development opportunity". Of course, it also says "more midrise blocks than you can stand..."

    WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is happening faster than I thought!!!!!!! Mayor Turner called us "Silicon Bayou" I like the ring of that

    Actually, it took way too long. Too many of these West Coasters seem to think all the Texas tech savvy resides in Austin or Dallas. They need an education...

    This made me think if I had a photo of what you were talking about - and I did! I scanned in a page from a book called "Houston" by Robin Dewhurst - circa 1979. It's at the bottom of a two page photo of that particular stretch of the Southwest Freeway





    AAA was in that office building, until they picked up and moved to Dallas...

    The cynic in me says in five years they'd just throw the same crap up on the site but five years on. Might as well get it over with; I'm not getting any younger.

    And here we are more than five years later, and I'm guessing still waiting, only with a little COVID on top....

    Let's hope that the ill-advised plans to despoil 800 Bell have been thrown in the dust bin, and that it will not fall victim to an ignorant, awkward and unconvincing attempt to 'modernize' this beautiful and distinctive building. 
    Consider some of the amateurish attempts to update older buildings such as the Federal Courthouse (515 Rusk) or Two Shell Plaza.

    Is there even a tenant in mind for 800 Bell?

    How amazing would it be if Elon buys out all of the existing pre-leases at the Ion and turns the entire building into Tesla’s new headquarters! Smack dab in the middle of the energy capital of the world.


    Would take some major balls, but I can see Elon doing something like that now that he has moved to Texas officially.

    Musk seems to be much more interested in Austin. I guess the return of Compaq (now known as HP Enterprise) is the most Houston can expect, at least until some serious VC money starts being made available for industries outside of oil and gas...

    Thanks for sharing this link. So helpful for me. Nice to be able to toggle between shots within the last year. 

    That Zoom link is useful, but I notice that the most recent imagery appears to be November 2019. Google appears to have images from 2020, but in some spots, Zoom's are more recent.

    And so it appears that Zoom has branched out...
