  1. I just realized that this will become Houston’s premiere snow sledding slope 😊
  2. Tunnel starting to take shape
  3. According to the original details on their Website the building was supposed to feature “Seven gardens and six reflecting pools inset along the building’s perimeter” I didn’t see anything like that in the final product, I’m guessing they scaled down their original version?
  4. The good news is we'll have new sections or developments opening up every year or two as they roll the plan out. It will be an ever evolving project.
  5. Is there an alternative to glass curtain wall, or a different way it could be applied to improve the overall effect? I just feel like all new buildings are built this way now. You don’t see a lot of stone facades going up anymore.
  6. I like it better when they break the development up with a few little side streets as opposed to building it like some insular fortification.
  7. Would have been cool if they had worked a spire into the deign.
  8. yeah, Gehry is on the other extreme for me. I never could figure out how the interior of his buildings are even usable. In this case, just a little bit of slice would have been nice 😊. But I’m still waiting for the end product and hoping to be pleasantly surprised. I’m hoping the gardens and reflecting pools offset the imposing facade a bit and create a pleasant pedestrian experience.
  9. I believe the cap park is still on the boards, it’s just a bit South of this rendering
  10. agreed, the building will appear very blocky and imposing from street level. Wish they could have brought some of those sweeping design elements down into the facade a bit.
  11. According to the new East Sector Plan, there will be a promenade on the North Canal similar in appearance to what was depicted for the Commerce street promenade in the original Master plan. Interestingly the North Canal would give the warehouse district a riverfront.
  12. From BBP Website: “The trail will begin at Allen’s Landing Park and continue east under the Fannin Street Bridge, transverse up the slope along Commerce Street before passing under the San Jacinto Bridge to the Wilson Building on Commerce Street. The trail will continue through the second basement level of the Wilson Building and under the Harris County Sheriff’s Inmate Processing Center.“ https://buffalobayou.org/construction-begins-on-key-buffalo-bayou-trail-connection/
  13. I wonder if BBP managed to acquire the old Gable Street Power plant property from Centerpoint? Would be great to turn that into a recreational area.
  14. Why can’t both be important? Glibly writing off people that care about how our skyline looks as suburbanites going to an Astros game runs contrary to the many skyline pictures I see on this forum every day.
