  1. Parking lots aren't really available until the owners decide to sell or redevelop. I'm getting the impression, from HBJ and other sources, that there just aren't many parcels that anyone wants to part with.
  2. Someone needs to tell Dallas that Houston's got 82 companies that did a billion dollars in business last year. And we didn't have to poach them from anywhere else.
  3. One guy is grousing about traffic. But he has the misfortune to also be a tort reform advocate, so he looks a bit of a hypocrite.
  4. Swamplot's also saying there's a second phase - 258 units. The latest render appears to show the second building, which is almost as tall as the first.
  5. The cynic in me says we're looking at four apartment wraps and a few bike paths. The real estate is definitely valuable - close to Downtown, access to the light rail. In DC, it would already have been developed. Those derelict car dealerships along the North Freeway are getting redeveloped, so I can't imagine this site's being ignored.
  6. Actually, the architect was going to hang a lantern or two in there. "One if by land, two if by sea."
  7. Something tells me the upsizing/downsizing is developers testing the waters and adjusting accordingly. That said, the continued lament of developers that there just aren't enough available lots in the city would tend to favor denser development. Of course, their creative ability to cram 6 rowhouses into a lot that used to hold one old house is unparalleled.
  8. Either that or four stories surrounding a parking core. These are showing up all over Texas (and other places).
  9. Those aren't decorational pyramids at the top of the garage level; they're homeless spikes!
  10. So why did Comerica Bank move its headquarters to Dallas instead? Half of the appeal of Dallas is its proximity to Houston.
