  1. I assume the office is the big chunk and they'll build the apartments on top (skinny chunk)?
  2. It's certainly not my money, but it would be awesome of Rice to also use some of its endowment to undergo a significant expansion in enrollment or significant expansion into nanotechnology or bioinformatics.

    Town & Country/City Centre *update*

    Our iconic buildings are about 30 years old and due for some modernization. Hopefully many will either be renovated or re-purposed, but it seems the Houston office market maybe a bit oversupplied for the near team.

    Future of Downtown

    They make visiting downtown much easier. Perhaps we are at peak parking garages due to ride sharing, but I view parking garages as a solid investment towards a more well rounded downtown. I certainly use the parking garages when I'm visiting from Austin for an Astros or Rockets game. I've been parking near Market Square during this Astros' season and have really enjoyed how active the area has gotten.

    Future of Downtown

    I think hotels and residences are still the catalyst for retail and to break the 9-5 aspect of downtown. Houston's DT hotel additions are a good sign and bodes well for tourism/visitors. Houston has steadily been getting good reviews from travel and food critics. Something not mentioned in the article are the new parking garages going up that will bring more intown visitors. It certainly doesn't hurt the Astros and Rockets have been good for the last several years, averaging 37,000 and 18,000 per game respectively.

    Downtown Apartment Market

    Realty News: Multifamily Occupancy Up Sharply in Downtown Houston Midtown: A Place For Millennials To Eat, Play And Sleep Read more at: https://www.bisnow.com/houston/news/multifamily/midtown-a-place-for-millennials-to-eat-play-and-sleep-91201?utm_source=CopyShare&utm_medium=Browser Not necessarily corroborated by these articles, but it feels like the Main St spine has finally started filling in the huge gaps right along the rail (especially in Midtown).

    1) Thanks for the awesome link that shows Houston multifamily in the pipeline. 2) Would be awesome if this were some affordable housing for graduate students and/or those who work at the Innovation District.

    New Garage with Retail Next to Lyric Center

    I thought there was going to be a food hall/court at ground level?

    Buffalo Bayou Master Plan

    Yup, seems like there's a dog park where there shouldn't be one.

    Latest Astroworld Plot redevelopment news

    I don't think we are over valuing this site, I think it's a matter of complexity. There are a few quasi private public organizations that complicates things. I believe it's a shame such a prime piece of land sits in purgatory.

    Parc at Midtown

    I also like this development and how it fits in with the surrounding area.
  14. The location of this is perfect..... it's connected to public transportation and to our best universities/research (Rice, TMC, UH) not to mention UHD and HCC. Also, I think putting this close to where our cultural centers are, between the Museum District/Herman Park and downtown's performing arts and hotels, is very shrewd. Fingers crossed, some form of the University Line gets built which would only increase the connectedness.
