  1. Every time I see updated pictures I can’t help but think about the Robinhood condos and that they are getting what they deserve.
  2. 70% sold, topping off at the end of the month, first units ready in approximately a year, according to HBJ: https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2019/04/01/river-oaks-luxury-condo-to-top-off-this-month.html
  3. These are very expensive condos, not apartments. They should be a lot more durable as they are concrete and not the cheap wood common with 5 story wood frame construction.
  4. This project seems to be moving faster. Thanks for pics!
  5. I think this project is now dead. I think this is the land that just went under contract: https://www.har.com/2406-mimosa-drive-7/sale_93095410. I don't know what the new buyer has in store for the land. The neighborhood resisted this building from the start.
  6. Exciting to see this area develop. Someone needs to knock down the Public Storage across the street next.
  7. Now 65% sold per their website.
  8. The crane was constructed this morning.
  9. They’ve been clearing the site the last two weeks and digging for foundation. The sales center moved around corner and they cleared that land too and use it for crew parking. Given that the building takes up most of the land, how will they fit a crane?
  10. Say what you want about him, but he kept his word not to build past the residential floors of Arabella.
  11. Per Facebook: "We are pleased to announce The Revere at River Oaks has broken ground! Construction starts Monday" https://www.facebook.com/TheRevereatRiverOaks/ I wonder how long this one will take as it's only 9 stories.
  12. I jogged by today. The sales center has moved around the corner but it didn't really look like much happened at the main site, as of this morning at least.
  13. The D in DC is Davis. It’s a collaboration with his business partner Robert Contranaous (sp?). On a related note, I know some people don’t like his designs but are there quality issues too? I’m shocked at how low some of his resale’s are like the Astoria which has high end finishes and units in the 450 per sq ft range which seems really low compared to other recent construction. His builder, GT Leech, is same one who built the ultra expensive The River Oaks.
  14. I think at one point there was supposed to be a high-end restaurant in this building, that would also offer room service to the Arabella. Not sure if that's (still) the case.
  15. Not yet. Sales center in process of moving around corner to break ground. Website has shifted from breaking ground this summer to breaking ground soon. Unclear if that means it’s imminent or don’t even want to commit to summer. I also think they’re trying to finalize permits.
  16. Is this going to block the views of Skyhouse, Arabella and the Wilshire? The views from these buildings in many units are already poor from the north-south sides due to their proximity to reach other.
  17. Now at 50% sold, breaking ground soon per their website.
  18. Project is still alive. Now with revised and smaller floor plans. The building is going from 11 to 15 units, with presumably a lower starting price.
  19. Wondering if this is dead. HAR listings are gone. I also heard last month that sales were very slow and they were thinking of shrinking some of the floor plans on lower levels to reduce entry price point.
  20. The end of this article on the Robinhood Bar-Bleu article mentions that the owner of the bar sold the land to a developer who plans to put up a 20 story residential highrise: “I recently sold the land that the club sat on to a real estate developer who will build a 20-story high rise,” Klienbart wrote on Facebook, “which will ultimately block of the views (of the Houston skyline).” https://www.click2houston.com/news/houston-bar-owner-paints-karma-on-parking-lot-ground-after-feud-with-neighbors
  21. So they plan on selling one per week -- after selling 4 in the past year? Skeptical that the onsite sales center will boost sales to that extent, especially with all of the competing options nearby.
  22. It looks like Pelican Builders moved the sales center trailer that was at Mimosa Place to the Revere. Sales at the Revere are about 10 percent after one year of marketing, but I guess they are still trying to push this forward with the clearing of the land and movement of the sales center. And what will happen to Mimosa Place -- the 18 story Pelican town home community down the road? Will this be a joint sales center now for the Revere and Mimosa Place? I believe that Mimosa Place is also not selling very well. They fenced in the (I believe 6) completed town homes away from the remaining vacant land, so I'm not sure if they are still planning to finish that development.
  23. Looks nicer than the previous design. How much smaller is it given it's shorter with different setbacks? And what market will it target? There's already two very high-end buildings not selling very well around the corner from here (Revere by Pelican and Mimosa Place). Will this actually happen?
