I think this project is finished, looks good. Wish they would start the Whole Foods project soon.

Crown is going up, I assume this will look just like the other one on Elgin & Louisiana.    

Crane is going up today!   My windows were fogged up but they already have the building columns on site as well.   Pearl at the Mix by marclongoria, on Flickr

I think people like it because it is yet again more infill?  Better to have something than nothing, right?  I will wait to reserve formal judgement until I see a full on rendering and not a snowy sketchup piece (though I love that little program).

 

Oh, I almost forgot  !

Nothing against Pearl II, but watching a new project go up on the former site for Alamo Drafthouse is going to feel like watching someone you still love carry their last box of belongings out the front door. Sigh!

I'm not really understanding your analogy of anguish since Alamo Drafthouse didn't get far in the process on this site.

 

As well as they are planning on opening up just a mile or so away. It isn't really that painful now is it..

So you're saying it was better that we ended it before it got too serious, and there are other fish in the sea? Thanks bro, I feel better.

Sorry guys, let me try to clarify.  2906 Louisiana is the building that was formerly slated to be used for the Alamo Drafthouse development.  This is an old building, it is not the current High Fashion Home building and it is not the current High Fashion Home Fabrics building.  

 

This building had been used by High Fashion home for storing extra furniture.  It is being emptied and is currently scheduled for demolition right after.

That makes a hell of a lot more sense. I ride past this building regularly and always wondered what they are up to. Excited to see another crappy mid-town lot bite the dust!

More "Pearls" are planned for Houston’s multifamily market. Houston-based Morgan Group Inc. is in the process of developing a Pearl at the Mix, a five-story, 196-unit complex atop a two-level parking garage at Milam Street and Tuam Street.

 

How much the project will cost was not available and the project has not filed any permits with the city yet.

Pearl at the Mix will feature studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units ranging in size from 612 to 1,703 square feet. Additional features include a fitness center, pool with cabanas, barbecue stations and an e-lounge.

Pearl at the Mix is slated to open by early 2016. Wallace Garcia Wilson Architects of Houston is the architect.

Morgan is taking great retail sites and squashing any chance the neighborhood has to have mixed use. I'd be ok with this development if it weren't on such a good retail street. Morgan's two on Elgin/Westheimer are even worse. Shame on them.

and exactly why does there need to be retail on every block?  there is retail literally all around in midtown... this notion that to have a truly walkable area every development needs retail is absolutely baseless. we've had this discussion a million times and it's usually the most clueless of folks that make this claim so adamantly.

The GFR people never cease to amaze me! Until the Post retail spots are filled up (If I may borrow a famous Chicago Sports Radio Segments Catchphrase) Who you crapping? Seriously - there are multiple empty retail spots including some in the 24 hour complex 2 blocks away! Why don't you take your savings and start a complaint department there? I started off trying to be funny but now I am mad! You guys are ridiculous.
