  1. I want to see a Harrod's. Especially if it's the first Harrod's in Texas.
  2. CBRE is taking bids on a 2.71 acre parcel - south side of Post Oak and 610. Get yours in by November 18 and it could be yours... http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/morning_call/2014/10/deadline-set-for-offers-on-vacant-galleria-area.html
  3. $1,500. I am actually quite surprised at how the price of rentals has moved in the last two years. It is still possible to find luxury apartments in reasonably new buildings in Fort Worth for under $2,000 a month for a two-bedroom, 1300 sf unit. The same building offered in Houston (by the same developer) can be over $2,500 a month. Supply has not kept up with demand, so it's a landlord's market. And it will probably remain that way for a few years, even with all the new construction coming to market. Of course, if you're willing to live out in Katy, you might get a price break. A small one.
  4. But it sure beats the guy spinning the signboard down on the street corner to attract our attention...
  5. I think the property is being converted to a hotel. I'm not sure, but it's a familiar brand, not a one-off.
  6. I'd be more concerned about the political agenda behind the proposed Saudi Consulate. That's an official government office. That said, I would not be surprised if the Chinese tossed in a gift just to have some say in the project.
  7. Another replacement building for an HISD magnet school. http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/blog/breaking-ground/2014/10/a-look-inside-one-of-the-coolest-schools-on-the.html
  8. It should be encouraging affordable housing, not just high-end units that most people can't afford.
  9. I thought the eviction notices went out. Demo may be forthcoming.
  10. One of the newspapers said 12. It's hard to know who to believe since the reports might be based on old information.
  11. That is a swell-looking building. Beats the average wrap by a mile. I just hope the developer doesn't look at his budget and decide to do some value-engineering.
  12. Seems like they shouldn't get DLI money unless some of the units are affordable housing. They might was well go after the EB-5 crowd.
  13. The Marlowe? I guess we will soon hear rumors about a companion tower called the Shakespeare and it will be said that the attributes of one building came from the other. Either that or the doorman will be Philip Marlowe, though he'll look like a gumshoe... Aw, I'll bet I've got a million of 'em.
  14. I wish people would stop asking me this. I have too many images of a pug stuck in my head...
  15. Nto bad for something that wasn't even a hole in the ground back in December.
  16. I heard a December start, so it's entirely likely the news organizations are about as informed as we are.
  17. "Sexy" in Randall Davis' terminology just means a ten-story half-naked statue in front. The more "+" on the number of floors, the better.
  18. Did they really build that second building in only four months?
  19. That's not going to happen unless the car dealer moves...
