  1. Whats your opinion about the shops? they have a wide selection for food and "dining" but retail wise they are falling behind.. plus they use most of the empy spaces to advertise for other stores... Although i think its great for what they do have.. I went yesterday with an aunt from mexico and we went to the grocery store at the end, and she asked (in spanish) "Why do they have all this stuff here?" i replied with a quote i heard in this forum ... but back to your opinion.....
  2. Hi, I've noticed that Willowbrook Mall recently tore down what used to be Lord & Taylor. There's a sign that reads "FUTURE COURT." Does anyone know what Future Court is or will be? Please reply.....
  3. Always offering the very latest, The Woodlands Mall recently welcomed five new, sought-after retailers to the shopping center. Additionally, a number of retailers have been moving to new locations and improving shopping environments for visitors. Recent additions to the list of retailers include: Oil & Vinegar, described as a fashion food for food, opened earlier this year on the lower level near the Courtyard Shops. A fun shopping experience for the novice or the gourmet cook, the shelves at Oil & Vinegar are filled with treats such as Italian white truffle oil, raspberry vinegar, pastas, relish, dip and more. Sona MedSpa, a nationally known luxury spa recently opened in the office component of the shopping center. Sona provides laser hair removal and anti-aging services. The Woodlands Mall is only the second Houston location for one of the nation

  5. With all that I have recieved, I figured it was about time I contributed a little something back to these forums. I took these from the 47th floor of the 1600 Smith building (Continental Center). I wish the weather was better that day, but I hope y'all enjoy regardless.
  6. Okay.... So wasn't this theater supposed to have retail or resturants inside? What happened? Soft market? No investors? Anyone have any info? Don't get me wrong I like the murals of future restaurants. Just wondering.
  7. Seems like another renovation is happening downtown. The domino effect is in full force in Downtown Houston, and maybe even Houston in general.
  8. I'm curious as to what everyone thinks of it. It was the last big project of note during the 80's, and it's been through several name changes throughout it's tenure. It just seems so odd that it isn't connected to the tunnels (The food court below doesn't count), and that they're only now establishing retail above ground...
  9. HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 29, 2005--Crescent Real Estate Equities Company (NYSE:CEI) announced today that its major tenant Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P. has exercised its option for the naming rights at 1301 McKinney, formerly known as Chevron Tower. The building will now be officially named Fulbright Tower. Constructed in 1982, Fulbright Tower is a 51-story, 1.2 million square-foot Class A office property located within the Houston Center complex in downtown Houston. The international law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski occupies over 350,000 square feet in Fulbright Tower and has officed in this location since 1985. In 2003, Fulbright renegotiated and extended its lease and received the naming rights option. Jane Page, Managing Director, Asset Management and Leasing at Crescent, commented, "We are pleased that Fulbright & Jaworski has exercised its right to name the building. Fulbright & Jaworski's prominence as a leading international law firm enhances the prestige and desirability of Crescent's newest Houston asset and the overall Houston Center development." Frank G. Jones, co-partner-in-charge of Fulbright's Houston office, said, "We welcome this opportunity to recognize the name Fulbright by which our firm has become known. R.C. Fulbright founded the firm with John Crooker, Sr. in 1919. As part of the office space remodeling which is taking place with the building name change, we are designating our conference space on our top floor as the Leon Jaworski Conference Center. We are pleased to be able to recognize the legacies of the men for whom our firm is named."
  10. Somebody over at SSP is claiming that he has a credible source telling him this building is confirmed and going up. Rendering looks to be 40-50 stories and says Q1 2013 completion....so I would expect a 2009 groundbreaking.
  11. ...must be destroyed! LOL But, I hear they can't do that because it has asbestos in it... It's fuh-gly though.
  12. 1. Yes, it was originally planned to be located at 1550 Smith St, reaching 904 feet and (I think) it was supposed to have a similar crown to the current Continental Center building. According to emporis, it was actually supposed to be called "Cullen Bank Tower II." I can't find a rendering for it, but we will soon have the Chevron building going up in that neck of the woods anyways. 2. I can't find the rendering for it, either...although I think I've seen one before. That said, if what Subdude is saying is true, I would tend to agree with him...and I'd update the list to add a building cluster in the Memorial area of west Houston called Resource Center, even though that was supposed to be three or four buildings. I also really would have liked to have seen the Shamrock Hotel (although I think this is where 609 Main will be going up), Four Houston Center (55 stories and 860 feet), the Redstone, the Monaco, Five Westlake Park, the First Capital office and apartment towers in the West Loop area and the Boymelgreen Condos at Voss & San Felipe built. I would trade the Mercer in for a bag of Doritos if I could. Did not know about that one. Sounds like it could have been a winner.
  13. I got out of a meeting with the leasing manager for Brookfield. She told me that they were in talks with a large tenant (Devon) to build another tower. It was listed on this site earlier that the greenspace in front of Continental Tower would be the location. She said they were now looking at building on the parking lot just east of 45 and North of the Met Parking Garage. She also confirmed that the Heritage Plaza is going ahead with their parking garage on the adjacent surface lot. They signed two large tenants and are now in a position to finally begin construction. Forgive me if this has been discussed before.
  14. From the Chronicle's Prime Property Blog: Brookfield is working with the city on getting incentives to tear down and redevelop other abandoned eyesores downtown. He was light on specifics, but in a follow up interview he said that financial assistance from the city would be welcome. "We're hoping this will part of the first of a number of opportunities that the city would have to rid itself of derelict properties," he said. While the city hasn't made any commitments yet, the discussions are ongoing, said Andy Icken, the city's chief development officer. "We're exploring ideas of what's been done in other cities, but we don't have a plan yet," Icken said. Does anyone have any inside info? It seems like there only a few possible candidates. Days Inn? The Savoy? Central Square?
  15. Rooftop pool This has always been one of my favorite buildings downtown. When it opened in 1962 it was the first downtown hotel since 1929, so it was a big enough deal that the Chronicle ran a special supplement about it. Famous guests included Jack Ruby and the Beatles during their only visit to Houston in 1965. Beatles press conference from the Sheraton-Lincoln: Fans spying: The hotel closed in 1986 but the office section of the building remained open for a while after that. The Hyatt Regency bought the building for expansion in 1998 and planned to connect it to the Hyatt with a skybridge. They got as far as gutting the Sheraton interior to remove asbestos, but the expansion fell through because of the weak economy. It has been a vacant shell ever since.
  16. I think this is starting to be an interesting trend downtown. 1301 McKinney recently completed a similar project in one part of the building and they had just closed off another part and I suspect they're going to do the same thing. There are a number of buildings aorund town in which this would improve the look of their buildings. Besides, it'll give the smokers a place to stand in the shade.
  17. I hate to do this again, but this is the only way I seem to get a responce For 2 Houston Center (on HAI) there are 2 photos of 1 Houston Center. They should be on the 1 Houston Center page, not 2 Houston Center!
