is that ground floor retail or are there just a lot of people in the lobby which appears to be sectioned off?

How will West creek and it's neighbors affect Afton Oaks?

Its a charming neighborhood, but I wouldn't mind if it wasn't there. Its one area I wouldn't mind seeing large scale demolition of all those period homes.

I felt dirty saying that. I need a shower now.

 

I'm glad you're in such a rush to demolish other people's homes.  That neighborhood has been around a long time, and it's those rich folks that live there that attract all of the high end retail.  Without them, Uptown wouldn't be the same.

Im no terrorist, I'm in no rush to demolish anyone's homes. But like I said, I won't mind seeing them flattened. There's a difference, dont twist my words

Haven't a lot (maybe even most) of those period houses already been demolished and replaced with new, larger houses?

Screw Afton Oaks. They are building these ugly track mansions, and then they think they live in River Oaks. We need the University Rail line to stop at Shepard. Then build a tollway right down Richmond through their area to connect to the Westpark Tollway. And screw Culberson!

 

maybe it's time your parents grounded you from your computer for a while.

What is their definition of "construction"? Right now we have empty apartment buildings, and I know for a fact that it takes them about 3-4 months to take down one of these buildings: obligatory wasting of time, appliance removal, wasting time, asbestos abatement, wasting time, further scrappage/prep, wasting time, and actual demolition.

This article is a few months old, but this part seems interesting:

 

"The building is designed to efficiently meet the needs of end users in a simple geometric form, with a skin that transforms throughout the day and night in a lively interplay with the surrounding development,” said Andy Kim, project designer at BOKA Powell.

An excavator was on this site today. I saw it on the drive into Uptown. I will try to get pictures of the site soon.

 

I had forgotten about this one. Too many developments to remember and many times its easy to forget about them if we are not here talking about them everyday.

Yeah, the buildings are totally gone.

Bunch of pics I took over several days, and a few videos that I have not had the time to go through. Was able to get so close since I actually live in the remaining building.

It looks as though there was a for lease sign on the pad next to the engagement ring store along the feeder next to the West Loop.

yeah theres a green and white sign up. i tried to get a picture as i was zooming by at 60mph but the picture is blurry, and the sign was crooked/leaning over for some reason the day i drove by.

Yes - in addition to this one, there is Amegy Bank's building on the old Micro Center site. (To say nothing of Skyhouse, the Davis condo and all the projects on the other side of the freeway).

I think this demolition that you see is Randall Davis' new 100-unit Westcreek condo tower.  As much I would have LOVED to see the office tower get up and running, I believe that Peloton had an option on the land, announced the Westcreek Centre office tower, was unable to get financing in order, the option ran out, and the land owner did not extend it.  So I think this is a dead project.

I hope that you are wrong about this.

I thought the HBJ reported that Randall Davis' condominium was on the 1.8 acre parcel he purchased along San Felipe:

The Westcreek Tower was to be on the 3.7 acre parcel abutting Westcreek and the northbound West Loop feeder.

So, this tower is dead. However, is the RD tower going to be on the Westcreek center site or the site abutting San Felipe?

 

Edit: It occurs to me that allthingshouston may have referred to demolition on this site as a laydown for the Randall Davis tower, similar to the bulldozing that occurred on the Landry's HQ site that was used for the Astoria's construction.
