  1. If you click the link and watch the video, phase 1 is just one of the buildings.
  2. ^^I got this from the first page. The overall plan has changed since then but I couldn't find another illustration. There are some industrial spaces built up on the east side along Murphy Rd but I don't think it's part of the overall project anymore. There is a major apartment complex in the middle that is almost done and is pretty close to the illustration. All the retail is along the western side of the project along the 59 feeder road.
  3. Houston could be catching some tail winds if/when life science research gets a boost in funding or a shot in the arm due to effects of Covid. I hope our local legislators and public/private advocates rise to the challenge/opportunity.
  4. I grew up in this area, closer to Houston than Sugar Land. I think this is great for the area as I don't see a City Centre like project developing.
  5. I've been frequenting Market Square when I'm in Houston as a sport tourist over the last several years and the scene has gotten considerable better.
  6. I drove along Post Oak this weekend and it's going to be a very tight squeeze for those buses, definitely will have to trim those trees again. Other than that, I liked the setup with the platforms in the middle and how Post Oak got upgraded.
  7. It seems the comment of yours that I replied to was about the general trend of GFR. Fair game dude. I generally agree with you, but there's still plenty of space left for non restaurant/bar retail to develop as density increases.
  8. ^^I've driven I10 from Houston to New Orleans and Houston to Kerrville, TX so I know what you mean. I stopped going I10 to Austin due to the construction and take 290 now.

  11. BisNow: Coworking Options Headed To Midway's CityCentre And GreenStreet
  12. I assume the office is the big chunk and they'll build the apartments on top (skinny chunk)?
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. ^^^Gene Hackman looks pretty cool.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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).
  19. 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.
  20. I thought there was going to be a food hall/court at ground level?
  21. Yup, seems like there's a dog park where there shouldn't be one.
  22. 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.
