  1. Has Willie G's completed the move over? If so that's another prime lot on the north end of Post Oak. #ReadyForTheNextSupercycle
  2. 2017 12 15: photo by me. Side note: haven't logged into photobucket in about 6 months; completely unusable now due to the ads.
  3. How does this process work? They don't own these properties. Some of the warehouses along 610 in option 3 already got cut in half by the 610/290/10 work... and just rebuilt.
  4. If there was a "post of the year" award, I'd nominate Naviguessor. Epic. "In Australia i guess it would makes sense to put the pool on the north side of the building. "
  5. Grade separation came up several times as part of the "how would Houson get high speed rail to downtown" question. I can't find the links, but one of the options was a plan to put two lines each of freight and high speed rail deep in a trench. I also recall there is (or was) a long-term vision to build underpasses for Shepherd and Durham under Washington.
  6. $500 / sq ft to overlook the freeway?! ... OH- you really shouldn't have.
  7. I used to live across the street, and there are some good places on the property that I would use: Starbucks, Crave, Embajadores (cigars), Song Kran (good Thai), Etoile (work meetings & food) etc... The western building (where Anejo used to be) never really met any needs in my life, and I still can't figure out what anchors the north end. It's been creamed by the road work on Post Oak, which makes going north-bound after work a frustrating experience, and the River Oaks District, which is the new hot spot has filled the void that used to feed this place. Also, the lack of a sidewalk on the west side of Post Oak lane, and the lack of ANY SIDEWALK AT ALL on the north side of Post Oak (since ~ 6 months ago) made walking to Uptown a terrifying endeavor. The project feels like a minor upgrade until the next super-cycle. This would be a great location for tons of apartments / condos, but retail access is very challenging due to the traffic.
  8. The elevated express lanes are not approved, and money has not been allocated. The 610/59 rebuild is funded, and site clearing is ongoing.
  9. I agree. Looks great. Lulling is still open. I cannot get enough.
  10. Drive past this all the time. TIght location, but it's pretty far back from the road... I guess they had to fit in the carport area. Too bad they didn't loft it over the drive like they did on the Hyatt's up the street.
  11. I give RD a lot of credit for this thing. Say what you will... when was the last time someone built a high-rise condo downtown? I literally can't think of any. We need to get this lifestyle kickstarted, and this is a good one to get the conversation moving.
  12. Purely a holding zone for Post Oak work. My office overlooks it. Seem to be expanding the space over the last few weeks, but it's packed with light poles, signs, asphalt, and whatnot.
  13. Sonic Automotive to build a "big beautiful dealership" across the highway from Audi. LINK
  14. Until you said it... I never realized it was supposed to be an M. Now I'll never see anything else.
  15. Am I the only one who's going to miss the elevated portion of 59? I liked coming from the airport, going elevated past the GRB, diving into the hole under I-45, then rising, like a phoenix to the elevated portion through midtown. You can see downtown, the med center, midtown... then you dive back down into the Montrose trench with the colored arches. The elevated portion is cool. You can see the scope of the city. I shall miss you.
  16. I believe that a slug of the 59-288-45 rework has now been funded (article on CommunityImpact). Specific project list linked here. Additions to the 10yr plan include the 45/59 interchange, the 59/288 interchange, and 59 between spur 527 and 45/59. Big step.
  17. Assuming it's all steel frame on the top... could flesh the whole thing out without a concrete core all around.
  18. Anybody else see that helicopter come through the Galleria area today (Monday 1/30 morning)? Holy mother-fu#$ing shit. I work on the ~15th floor of one of the buildings just south of Williams and we were literally looking down into the rotor as it blew past about 25 feet from the windows. People dove out of one of the conference rooms thinking it was going to come through the glass before it ducked away. It came within about 30 feet of the tower crane building the new apartments on Hidalgo and cut the buildings down the lakes on Post Oak. Complete nonsense.
  19. I want to reiterate this is my favorite thread on HAIF. Huge high-five to IronTiger. I literally LOL'd. Needed that today.
