This is the kind of situation that frustrates the hell out of me. Any property built in the historic district should be required to have GFR. For that matter anything built downtown should be required

I guess they saw your post and liked the idea. Trellis going up.

Yeah I think it's the northeast corner - if it was replacing the Chase bank drive-thru they wouldn't have said "one block north of market square".  And the northwest corner would mean they would be jutting over the bayou - the rendering looks a full block wide, and a half block deep

Nine stories of parking and new groundfloor retail replacing those sketchy TOC Bar surface lots one block from my bar I want to kiss this developer on the mouth.

 

I've been meaning to check out your bar but at the same time I'm trying to drink less. Is it casual?  Can I show up in trainers and jeans?

Over the weekend, all of the parking curbs and meters were stripped from this lot, leaving a completely blank surface.  There are orange cones preventing would-be parkers from entering the lot.  I will keep an eagle eye out for future developments (utilities marking would come next, I suspect; followed by core samples).

 

Also there is a wild and skin-of-teeth-substantiated rumor/theory that Spaghetti Warehouse (a block away) is looking to build a garage and movement on this is related to their outreach.  Apparently they approached the Bayou Lofts about buying their garage several months ago, which was/is nearly at full capacity.

Yep.  Fenced off.  Per the crew this is now slated to be an 11 story garage, rather than 9.  

 

Awesome. But hopefully it doesn't look like a cheap garage.

In that area any building more than a couple storeys will have great visibility so I do hope that it is a building that doesn't detract from the beauty of our skyline. 

 

Isn't this still on the historic district?  I don't expect it to be as well disguised add the Aris garage though.

This annoys me. No one has said it doesn't except that dumb post that insinuated it.

 

for all we know nothing's changed. If something has, that's what should have been communicated.

 

Dumb post?  Alright pal.

 

This garage is of particular interest to me as it will be directly in my view at my home.  I have heard from a couple of people that the retail portion is no longer included.  I do not have any certified documents from the developer representing as such.  I would tend to believe the people who told me this.

Thanks for sharing your source. Hopefully the retail manages to make it in.

Without the retail portion, this is a miserable development for the historic district.  They can pretend like their changes make the streetscape better all they want but this is just lazy development.
