Because the rendering shows some steel mesh panels? I'd say it looks similar to some of the parking garages at UH, and, at the end of the day, it looks like a parking garage.

I thing the Steel Mesh Panels is what gives it a glamour. There aren't many parking garages in Houston that have designs on them.

Sure as hell doesn't look like any parking garage I can think of. Can't please everyone.

The placement of the garage is awful, I'd hate to to live in the far corner during moving days and grocery days. Sheesh

 

How far do yall think that is from garage corner to diagonal apartment corner on the other side?

Two tenths of a mile?

i like the design of this one a lot - yes, even the garage. at least they're trying to make it less of an eyesore. glad to see more of these "modern" designs popping up as opposed to the more traditional stucco/brick variations so prevalent in Houston.

I really like the entrance, looks very elegant. People make a decision to lease based on the entrance, the lobby/clubhouse and the pool area - of course if it's at the right price. People put a great deal of importance on the ability to impress visitors.

I think they look fine. However, I think we have reached critical mass in terms of just how these parking structures effect the overall composition of an entire body of work. Honestly it shouldn't take that much more effort to bury that thing or work out some kind of deal with the city where you create one general purpose parking lot for an area in town used by all. This exclusivity of parking arrangement where EVERY building needs its own dedicated parking structure (which I know its actually code/laws more than anything else) is simply ludicrous!

once you get a layered public transit system going and trust from the public that it will service their needs then the need for mass parking disappears.

 

Over time, perhaps.

 

I just moved my office into a nice, supposedly LEED triple gold pressed latinum all the stars of the Milky Way certified building.  

 

With zero bicycle accommodations that I can find.  I think the remaining bike messengers use the loading dock.

well its not just the lack of bike racks, but the current bike paths that are simply stripes painted on streets are just downright unsafe! Most don't even continue that far and terminate at awkward areas forcing them back onto the sidewalks or to just risk their lives near the fringes.
