  2. I've been posting apartment market information in the Sky House Main thread, because it originally grew out of a conversation there. In order to make them more available, I wanted to start a separate thread. Here goes. As of 2nd quarter, 2016, downtown had a 56.2% occupancy rate. 207 new units were delivered during the second quarter '16. Net absorption was 142 units. FWIW, downtown had, by far, the lowest occupancy of all the submarkets in the Houston metro. The metro-wide occupancy rate was 89.7% I think the downtown submarket has a great future, but there was little doubt there would be a glut of apartments in the short term. The "Central Houston" market (downtown, Montrose/Museum/Midtown, Heights/Wash Ave., HIghland Village/Upper Kirby/West U, and Med Center/Braes Bayou) had a 78.4% occupancy rate. 1,404 new units delivered during the quarter, with 732 units net absorption.

  4. After years of suffering from urban flight, retail is returning to downtown. The adaption of older buildings to residential units, and increased pedestrian traffic due to light rail and entertainment venues will surely bring more. What's new with retail downtown, and what do we still sorely need?
  5. It just came to me that the only decent looking large chain hotel ion downtown Houston is the Hilton Americas connected to the GRB. The Hyatt looks horrible, and so does the Doubletree, the exterior of these hotels in downtown need to be updated soon...
  6. When I moved to Houston 20-some years ago, there was practically no residential units Downtown. The only major apartment buildings were Houston House and 2016 Main (if that's considered to be downtown). So which of the new developments offer the best in downtown living? Consider accesss to transportation, parking, noise, quality of workmanship and materials, and "bang for the buck".
