This corner is going to be pretty cool. It looks like both Catalyst and Alexan are putting GFR in right at the corners with awnings covering the sidewalks.

 

Since someone here already jinxed things, it will be perfect for some good weather in October during the World Series.

This was one of the  other buildings that I went by tonight and I really like the mix of red and dark colored brick with the limestone. Its a nice contrast. I'm glad they used a different colored brick than the other buildings surrounding Minute Maid. The glazing seems very natural and I think that this will fit in so well with the other new neighbors to Minute Maid. 

 

In memory of Tal's Hill a longtime fixture in Minute Maid's outfield Field, that was excavated last offseason, and since this is the location of one of the original neighborhoods in downtown,  it should and will be known as Society Hill, It's original name. I found some interesting small objects from the past on the site after the archeological digs and before they started  construction on Enron Stadium.

Hindesky, if archiving the present building cycle was a country, you would be king. Really appreciate all the work you do for this forum, and on a weekly basis.

Complete continuous closure of the 600 block of La Branch (between Texas and Capitol) for crane dismantlement.

So now that Downtown Living Initiative is bringing lots of the 10K units on-line, anyone know the population of Downtown Houston? And aren't we due at least one more tower - was it Trammell Crow that got an extension?

 

Just a Back of the envelope estimate:  I'd say right around 7,500.

Downtown Houston now has more than 8,000 residents, a big leap from 3,800 in 2013 when the Downtown Living Initiative first tackled residential need in the central business district, and that number is increasing monthly.

I think a big reason why the Catalyst is filling up is because of the insane concessions they are making on rent.  A coworker of mine just moved in there and got 3 months free on a 1 year lease, making it a good value.  But she said she'll move out after the year because the normal market rent is more than she's willing to pay.
