Great lighting brijon, looks like a rendering.

Thanks buddy! I was actually flying for a photo job for another downtown building but couldn't help but snag this one too.  She looks so great!

From the past few days. Was surprised to see how many people were taking their family photos outside of the building so that they could have the lobby Christmas trees as their backdrop.

They need to just write "COULD BE YOU!" with a 1-800 number in the next space after Hogan Lovells. That's how you get the big name tenants.

Exclusive: Goldman Sachs to relocate into new downtown Houston tower

 

By Cara Smith  – Reporter, Houston Business Journal

May 23, 2018, 2:44pm CDT

 

New York-based Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) is the latest in a wave of financial services companies to relocate to 609 Main in downtown Houston.

 

The company will vacate its roughly 50,000-square-foot space in 1000 Louisiana and move into 609 Main at the end of the year, per CBRE's Dave Hanusa. Hanusa, along with Marilyn Guion, represent 1000 Louisiana's landlord. Upon its departure, Goldman Sachs' space will be available for direct lease.

 

The company will be occupying slightly less space in 609 Main. A building permit filed for Goldman Sachs' space on the second floor lists the cost of buildout at $1.2 million. The company will be relocating around 100 employees into the building. The permit lists Goldman's space as suite 200.

Do you have a filter lens that you put over the stock gyro cam? Or is that all post-edit?

I can understand splitting this topic so we can continue commenting on it, however - this thread has alot of 'going up' material in it and probably shouldnt be completely moved in whole to the Downtown forum.

I do have a few ND filters but they are for video to help slow the frame rate down (make the footage smoother).  All photo edits are done through Lightroom and Photoshop.

So I'm not 100%, but I believe it is going at Main/Texas and there is another concept that will be joining Mendocino on that corner.

From the Hines article:

 

https://www.hines.com/news/mendocino-farms-sandwich-market-slated-to-open-at-609-main-at-texas

 

"Located on the corner of Main and Texas streets, the concept will serve its popular menu of responsibly raised meats atop salads and in sandwiches, including vegan and gluten-free options, along with a variety of craft beverages. Mendocino Farms is slated to open in the Fall of 2019 and will be its third location in the Houston market, following Rice Village and Uptown Park which are slated to open Summer of 2019. "

I still wish the crown lighting was bolder.   Based on my observations it's just a large atrium with lights pointed towards the ceiling.

This came in the e-mail today from Hines:

What a great image of the Hines building lined up with the Chase (formerly Gulf) building and the Niels Esperson buildings; the photobomb by the civil courts building in the lower left notwithstanding.  😊

The lighting on 609 Main is like if you have a brand new Bugatti and you put sticker flames 🔥 on it.   Gotta do better.

Looks like they just started work on the interior for the restaurant.  I ate at one of these in downtown LA once, it was pretty good, I think it will do well, though Cafe Express across the street might not like it much.

I can vouch that Mendocino Farms is really good. Really excited they’ve expanded to Houston.

I have work that takes me to LA a lot. The Mendocino Farms on Santa Monica BLVD in West Hollywood is great. Really fresh sandwiches with funky ingredients. It's a great spot.

You'd think, right? At least somewhere around 80-85%. I wish I knew for sure.

Most recent downtown report states "609 Main at Texas is over 80 percent leased". Page 3 of the link:

http://www.downtowndistrict.org/static/media/uploads/attachments/downtown_market_update_2019_q1.pdf

 

92% by my source, and that may not include the recent lease of two floors. Once they get that corner restaurant space leased, this thing is stabilized for all intents and purposes.

With WeWork losing so much money, how much longer can we expect their presence downtown? Or any market for that matter 

Yeah, the chips are going to start falling for WeWork soon. This IPO mess is just the beginning...

Is it just an over-saturated market? There seem to be a ton of co working spots

Any flooding in the tunnels today?  The tunnel was blocked.  I heard abnormal water flow.

I heard buildings closed their water tight doors to be on the safe side. However, I do not think there was any flooding.
