  1. Swamplot posted the renderings, thus breaking the HBJ barrier.
  2. Could be shortage of materials. Or labor. Or both. Who knows?
  3. Pretty good for no formal announcement and no renderings...
  4. A bit related -- I went looking for a previous thread on the High School for Health Professions after seeing the following item in the HBJ. WHR, which seems to have done quite a few medical and educational projects (and just got acquired) is designing it: http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/blog/2014/10/new-health-care-high-school-to-rise-in-houstons.html As is typical of HBJ, their pictures can't be displayed elsewhere... http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/blog/2014/10/new-health-care-high-school-to-rise-in-houstons.html?s=image_gallery
  5. Word from the realty report is Hines is asking $50 a sf for this one.
  6. You have no idea what they're burying. And in related news, someone in town might have Ebola.
  7. I don't ever remember that lake being there. Must have been the trees. Everything is so lush and green - like Kuala Lumpur.
  8. Christus is a big organization in its own right, I don't think they are strapped or looking to sell. The holy fathers in Denver would not agree to it.
  9. One of these towns is going to rule the future. SF is the pretty-boy, Houston is like a growing teenager... http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/10/05/battle-of-the-upstarts-houston-vs-san-francisco-bay.html
  10. I'm willing to bet it will be in the Med Center - maybe even on Yellowstone.
  11. Maybe they'll great creative and cover the Montrose facing side with murals, a la Mexico City.
  12. I thought Stream had a number of projects in the pipeline and financial backing. Did they just lose interest?
  13. The latest lease to the latest previously unknown oil company (EMAS) cleared 100,000 sf of space out of City Center Five. That building is now half occupied.
  14. Don't tell the Saudis, but I think I saw elements of that design in an Israeli embassy once before.
  15. What Super Bowls? There are rumors SxSW is getting too big for Austin and is looking for additional space...not necessarily in Austin.
  16. I went back and reviewed the original proposal; the design was actually not the greatest even back then. But the nifty sleight of hand with the garage on the first few floors appears to have shrunk the leasable space. And the name change sucks.
  17. That's okay, MetroNational is throwing up an office building over at Memorial City.
  18. At this point, it's only a problem if we're adding 4m sf a year. I don't think those buildings will come out of the ground that fast.
  19. As long as the exterior lighting features a Bat-signal. To compete with the Williams Tower beacon.
