i still can't figure out why they aren't trying to activate the actual streetside retail.

^^^ imo, it seems that MIDWAY'S new property developer LION is trying to concentrate solely upon the smallest of exterior cosmetic details (painting of the escalators etc.) until the HOTEL is hereby completed.  once ALESSANDRA is completed, i am thinking that their focus shall become primarily around marketing the hotel/office space along with much better soft goods via higher end retail.  i have stated it once, and i shall state if again "HOTEL ALESSANDRA shall indeed act as the true catalyst for growth at GREENSTREET.  this new and brilliant hospitality segment is just what this property needed all along.....

Would be cool if they actually had some real signage on the exterior of Greenstreet. Instead of it just looking like a giant grey box.  I really dont understand what the previous owners or new ones are thinking.

The current owners are thinking about planting grass that turns to weeds.  Adding an "astro turf lawn" for the sake of nature, and painting flowers on stairs.  Unfortunately, they seemingly have yet to find a large tenant for the property to go into the ex-bookstore.  Hopefully the hotel works better than the rest of it.  

 

Remember the renderings when midway bought the place?  I defy you to look at those and what is there now and see much comparison.

What kinds of large square footage retail is looking for space these days?  Maybe they could give Dick's Sporting Goods a sweetheart deal for the BAM space, they just added a bunch of Houston area locations.  The BCBG had big bright harbinger-of-store-closure "EVERYTHING MARKED DOWN!" signs last time I walked by.

I think Zara or H&M would do well.

Say no to Dicks. Why would you give it to the competition when Academy's headquarters are located in the Houston metro (Katy)? Support local.

Many a business traveler will not care and will book it for the right price as long as it has a bed.  But to me, that interior design is a jumble of tack trying to find call itself class.  Yuck.  Hopefully the actual rooms and overall interior design  feel better than this schlock.

All that gold makes it look a bit Trumpian. :ph34r:*

I agree.  But, be careful not to speak anything negatively about the orange one here on this forum as they seem to frown on that particular freedom of speech, sadly...  Just sayin.  :P

I voted for him and find the comment witty and funny. Thanks for the laugh.

I refuse to say anything nice about this building grrrrrr!

Every pre-construction rendering on this building has been a fanciful fiction compared to what was built.  I have no hope that the pre-opening renditions of the inside of the hotel are any less fanciful fiction than the outside was.  In short, this developer has done nothing to show me that what they PUBLISH is what they BUILD......  so, I'll wait to see the interior for myself when this hotel opens.

I don't think some of those are renders. There are mock-ups of the hotel rooms on the 2nd floor of GS between the bowling alley and the TV station.

Just my own opinion, but to me the place doesn't really come off as all that luxurious, either outside or inside.  The interior seems like the kind of "luxurious" that will seem tatty in just a few years.  And the exterior, just nondescript.

^^^ @Subdude i love you my pal.  however, as you may plainly see, HOTEL SORELLA (exterior) (also by VALENCIA GROUP) can be quite "nondescript" as well.  nonetheless, HS is considered one of the most luxurious hotels within this greater houston region.  as a matter of fact, i shall rate HOTEL SORELLA along with HOTEL GRANDUCA as the best hotels in the southwest.  exterior design/details actually mean nothing.  it' all about what goes on the inside.. services, food, style, posh/plush, amenities, management, oh, and did i mention services and food.....

Shifting from the traditional corporate cubicle, The Concept at GreenStreet offers entrepreneurs and big businesses alike the opportunity to create a more collaborative and innovative work environment surrounded by amenities within the heart of Downtown Houston.

With floor plates between 5,000 and 37,000 SF available for a one-of-a-kind office environment, The Concept features 18’ ceilings, rectangular spaces with no core to create efficient and dynamic environments and the opportunity to create mezzanines and indoor and outdoor break areas.

Looks pretty nice. I had been thinking the city's RFP specified residential here, but maybe it is mixed use?

 

One must keep in mind how many of the design elements could be whittled away in later renderings...

There's balconies pass the 8th level, residential above office?

So what is the tall shiny building where the old Sakowitz store was?  Is this something planned or just artistic baloney?

 

There's a thread somewhere about the re-development of 1111 Main somewhere. The city solicited bids for some project to do something with it, though it was short on particulars. Retail and residential were involved IIRC.

 

I didn't think anything ever came of it baloney or otherwise, or at least anything that was released publically. I interpreted silence as the idea dying of neglect, but I don't actually know anything.

Looking at the May 17th posts here and the PDF contained  in them, is it fair to assume that greenstreet is essentially now being marketed as an office concept that contains restaraunts and a hotel?  There seems to be no effort to attract non-food/entertainment retail in that brochure?

 

wasnt the entire point of selecting Dallas as the new "retail corridor" (and spending millions of tax dollars) to leverage Greenstreet (among others) as a retail location?

 

Has midway now formally moved in a different direction?

retail isn't working there. F21 is doing ok, BCBG closed, Books A Million closed. A shoe store only lasted 6 months.

Gatorade had a temporary gym for the super bowl. That's pretty much it for retail there.

You were apparently looking at their office concept leasing brochure.  Here is their  general leasing brochure.
