Love this picture! Did you know that there is an open to the public pre-Civil War cemetery a few courtyards over from the one in the picture?  Quite a juxtaposition of styles and uses along this street.

Came across it one day on google maps and it has a very fascinating history.

This goes into great detail and also shows a lot of what Houston was like pre civil war. This part of town was mostly one large plantation and little did I know but San Felipe was a very old wagon tail long before this part of town was considered part of Houston.

It's projects like this that have me very excited about the future of Uptown.  This building, both Hanovers, all the new highrise condos/MF on Westcreek, Post Oak Blvd's future retail, the Rosewood development + other high end hotels looking in the area, the growing emphasis on walkability, and even the new high-rise luxury senior living project on Garretson. 

I have to assume this area will have very few rivals nationally, for areas outside a CBD.  A lot to be excited about for sure.

Westcreek will be next level once they/ If they ever break ground on ROD phase 2 and the equinox hotel.

Buckhead in Atlanta rivals Uptown but I think Uptown has better potential!

Oh yeah I wish they would hurry and hang the rings over the intersections back up!

Really? That seems like it would indicate some kind of very serious environmental apocalypse.

Or the worlds tallest landfill, Houston’s only hills.

i mean at least i would go to buy a frappuccino periodically!!! ;) 

but yeah i hope it's something that really matches this cool building! i just can't tell from the renderings if it is abstract art in that space or what! the outside of this building is looking pretty close to finished so hoping they have the reveal soon!!!

I really want the east side to fill in now and create a cool canyon. I know it has been mentioned before, but these photos highlight how great it would look.

I want the east side of the freeway as well 😁

Wait, you mean "King Ranch Texas Kitchen", 3 banks, and an AT&T store may not be the best use of this stretch of Post Oak?

Having a mountain in our city is not something I'd see as worse by any measure.

In the early 80s I was taking some art class and one of the assignments was to come up with a "conceptual" project. My decidedly lazy response was to propose the world's tallest and widest billboard with a painting of a mountain on it to be placed just east of downtown. This way the cliché bayou view of Downtown's west side skyline would have a mountain behind it. The eastern side of the billboard would have a painting of the eastern view of the skyline with a mountain behind that. 

My other (even lazier) proposal was to put a giant, rotating green neon dollar sign on top of the newly completed Allied Bank Plaza (now Wells Fargo).
