Got to take a hardhat tour of the site yesterday. Still a lot of work to be done. They're shooting for an October 26th grand opening, with about the first 15 or 16 floors complete at that time. The 39

Cool picture from their FB page.

Just put a deposit down to move here when it opens. Schedule date of move-ins is October 1, so there's quite a bit more to be done on the site. At the moment, I can't even get a tour because the only working elevators are those on the outer sides of the buildings.

 

I'm pretty stoked though. The full list of amenities is mind boggling to me as someone who has never lived in a high-rise. They're only leasing to early invitees at the moment, but if anyone is interested let me know, and I'll give a referral. 

 

Also, I have a few pics of the model unit and some shots the manager took of inside the unit (very unfinished). Not sure whether that's relevant here as I'm new, but I'm happy to post as well.

Can't wait to have a pool party!

Photos/info of practically anything pertaining to the developments is relevant here.. :). I agree, this tower went all out with the amenities. Sounds like astros now has a co host for the HAIF 40th story pool party. We can't wait to check it out! :D

Only leasing to "early invitees"?  Did they really tell you that?  I just love real estate marketing.

 

For those interested in pursuing a lease, you can also call 713-777-7000 and get your own "invitation."  Or go to their website and fill out a lease application right on-line, no "invitation" required.

Finally getting around to posting the pics I took. All the photos are above the 10MB size limit, so I'm posting an Imgur album. Hopefully, that's permitted. http://imgur.com/a/sFoPZ

 

I would say my overall impressions are very good but not blown away by the actual apartment finishings. The amenities, the view, and the downtown lifestyle are definitely what sell the building. The finishings are not much nicer than most other apartment buildings around town. But my fiancé and I have been looking to move into a high-rise downtown since moving to Houston. Renting is a good way to see whether we like living downtown versus other areas of the city. Definitely very excited though.

Not sure about all floor plans, but the market price of the units we looked at were between $3200-4200. They have some decent lease-up specials though, but I do have to say that you don't get much for that price range. It's definitely a very high-end building. 2BR 2BA corner units on the upper floors start at $6000 for instance. But we should definitely have a pool party!

Definitely a marketing tactic, but when I got my unit, the leasing office actually wasn't open yet. The first 25 units or so went before everything was up and ready. That's why I offered to connect anyone interested. But you're right that the leasing office is now open and the application and everything is online.

As much as I love being sassy, I can't decide if it's Vegas or Tampa (combination)?

 

edit: I suppose if it were a darker brick I wouldn't dislike it so much.

 

Have you had a chance yet to see it in person? To me, the stone looks much better.

They currently have an AC condensing unit where the lower east side pool will be. I wonder if is staying there or will it be hoisted to the roof when the time is right?

 

I think that is the general consensus here but it has been sitting there for awhile.

There is a window sign on Main Street that has a large detailed rendering that is better than I remember seeing.  

 

This pool is only a little bit cool.

at first glance, it appears to be a centaur on the righthand side of the top deck. white shirt, and orange pants. then you can just barely make out a black shirt above the second pair of orange pants. dashing my dreams of a centaur being a permanent installation on this second deck.

 

neat shots. they do need to move the AC unit from the second floor pool though, that's not going to be a selling point.

Sounds like an opening date of October with everything done in April 2017

Market Square Tower is slated to offer about 22,000-square-feet of retail space on the first floor. Schneidau said several national firms are being courted, but he is not yet able to disclose names.

I'm confused. At the beginning of this thread there are renderings of this project from Ryan Jackson architects, 

however when you go to their website and look under Our Work or Under Construction it has no mention of this project.

You would think with the scope of this project they would mention it on their site. Can anyone shed some light on who is the architects 

for this building? THANKS

Hover on "Work In Progress" then click "Under Construction" that appears just underneath.

They dropped off some matchbooks and koozies at the bar the other night.  They have signed some retail, which apparently includes a dog grooming joint and a yoga studio.  They aren't yet ready to reveal their tenant for the largest retail space.
