The real question now is if and when construction will start

 

I’ve been thinking this.

 

Hopefully they don’t sit on the land for years until they are fully funded.

What if that Whole Foods across the street got rid of all that parking in the front and paved it over to allow for easier access from the sidewalk? I hate those ugly ass bushes in the front.

Made a new friend today! 

 

They’re currently flushing out a hole, or something similar so they can start the soldier piles. They’re going 60 feet underground?  Dirt retention for the next few weeks. 

 

The rebar at the site is for the dirt rention.

RIP to the views on the left 3/4s of the Cosmo. 

My brother lived in both midtown and the upper east side of Manhattan for several years. Staring at other skyscrapers across the street is a common situation there. It is happening in some areas of Houston.

I am excited about the ugly base/podium of the Cosmo being covered up! That was one of the dumbest designs ever...

. . . And, yet, it is repeated over and over again by RD!  He could take a note from Hanover, Hines, Caydon and Camden. . . all of whom seem to have no problem with design aesthetics.

It seriously is mind blowing how awful Randy’s garages are. At least he’s finally started incorporating (a tiny strip of) glass into them. That wall is so stark without the shopping strip in front of it.. can’t wait for this development to spruce up the view on Post Oak northbound.

This one at least used to have some gray art murals on the side. They got taken off after the leaking or whatever issues and they resided the garage. Now its lost the little character it had.

Haha they were pretty bad and lazy. Not saynig I liked them but it wasn't this white wall. Either way RD has no idea what to do with garages. He's slowly improving. At least the new development on San Felipe will had Arabellas white wall on the east side.

They could always attach something to it...like some kind of metal grid or maybe even grow some dang vines on the base....But yeah...something...hopefully the new building sufficiently covers up most of that blank view...

I was driving by this after work with a friend visiting and they thought that the podium of Cosmo was going to be an outdoor movie screen haha! I wonder if they just painted it dark gray at least, then it wouldn't stand out as much...I mean something should be done to at least make it less "stark" you would think!

Has there ever been an official announcement for what this is? I hadn’t noticed if there was anything confirming it’s still the plan from September 2017.

Wasn’t there litigation pending related to this tower?  Maybe the speed at which construction is progressing and the lack of any formal ground breaking publicity is because of the litigation.
