Every time there is a post in this thread I hope it is an update on the other two towers. I love how quickly this project got moving and is being built. I have full faith in this developer.

Think about the level of density the city will have from the TMC to Downtown if the city approves no parking minimums for Midtown and Eado! The area is already rather dense as it is having that restriction.

Does the city have that on the agenda to vote on?

Not sure, where can I find the city agenda? I was told the 11th of this month.

The Red line is going to be even more popular. It's a shame TMC is not on the same axis as the Blue line. That intersection (red and blue if it crossed in TMC) would be something. 

 

I still think McGowan is going to need done transportation upgrades very soon

I honestly thing the next step is making Richmond a BRT line. I think BRT can make huge gains in this city. And what's better is its cheap and easily convertible to rail.

That's the current plan for the blue line, since there's no funding to make it a full light rail line

I'm curious where you saw that info? I remember you mentioning it on another post.

I haven't been able to get a good floor count. Are they working on the 23rd floor now and is this going to be 28 floors still?

Thanks for an update.

By late 2019, the developer will break ground on its mixed-use project that, along with the residential high-rise, will span about three city blocks when complete.

 


The Australian developer is eyeing the Museum District, Montrose and Midtown for future projects.

I'm noticing this building more and more as it gets taller. Great addition to our city!


Big ups to Caydon

The trees in Rechlin's pic make this area look more aged and beautiful. Love it.

 

But can we have one street downtown lined with beautiful flowering non natives. 

 

I vote for Jatropha trees. Mine survived last winters harsh cold. And it's covered in red flowers almost every day. Thryallis are always covered in flowers too.

The Australia-based company also shared plans to lease one of the ground-level retail spots to a non-Texas based company. Four or five tenants will occupy the 13K SF space.



 

  "We are in the process of being very specific in who we target," Caydon Chief Operations Officer Derrek LeRouax said. "We don't, as most other developers would, take the first people that come through the door with the highest dollar. We look at it from a perspective of being able to help balance the community."

Wahlburgers may open its Houston location at The Midtown by Caydon. I read in another online forum this is where it may open.

Maybe off topic but I noticed the lot north of Camden McGowen no longer is advertising that it needs a restaurant lessee. Was wondering if that might be the WB location.

It appears that Flying Biscuit has announced that they are commencing build out? Is the building really that far along?

This developer doesn't waste time! I think they're on the 25th floor already. 

So is that two more to go?

Condominiums?  Hope so.  

From the website: 

1000+ condominiums and retail
The height of the proposed next phase isn't mentioned. Anyone know how many stories a 1,000 unit condo building might require?

I know this would never be apples to apples,  but the Ivy Lofts project that didn't work out that used "micro units" was 550 units in 28 stories. The tower was only on half of the lot (other half was a parking deck). No idea on lot size differences.
