Awesome! Now all I need is a render of the back of it to see what life is gonna be like starring at the ass end of this thing¬†ūüėā

 

My best guess is the parking structure will face your apartment.

I definitely would have preferred the high-rise, but this is adequate for the area given the design.

 

At the very least it will be a taller structure then what is currently at the location right now, and it will be consistent will the new construction going up along the blvd.

I've been saying this for years but I think the real transformation will come at the Post Oak Shopping Center. This is one of the largest tracks of land in such a centrally located area that if it were to go mixed-use, it would literally be a game changer for this area of Houston.

 

Agree with you.

 

One of the tenants in that center told me perhaps four or five years ago that their lease and all the other leases in the center expired in seven years. I don't know if that information is still accurate, but if I'm the Landlord, I'd want to manage the property in that way to expedite redevelopment.

I like it! Nice infill that will get rid of a strip center and create a pedestrian atmosphere with the office and retail.

Super. It's contextual, is much more interesting from  a pedestrian standpoint than a typical office tower with a cold, visually uninteresting lobby, giant parking structure and maybe a bank or financial services operation on the ground floor. 
Always happy to have new restaurants in the area and it looks like Ninfas is going to launch in  a week or two .

There was an article I think in the Chron about how HPD has seized like 13 million from these clubs but basically prosecuted almost no one.  

Funny how that works, huh?

Link?  A quick Google search turns up nothing like this.

What do you expect? This is America’s grandest BLVD in the making

Not sure if a joke or not, but unfortunately, the "grandest" title isn't even close. Post Oak isn't bad and the decorative street elements (the arches, rings over the intersections, etc.) make it really stand out. It does  kind of remind me of a mini Wilshire Blvd in L.A. but a long way from matching the likes of 5th or Park Ave's or 57th st., for that matter, in NYC, Michigan Ave in Chicago, or the likes of the Las Vegas Strip or New Orlean's Bourbon St!

I'm pretty sure that's why @Timoric said "America’s grandest BLVD in the making". Hell, we're still about 1-2 years away from completing just the basic infrastructure for the project, so of course it won't be close. I'm certain it won't be the "grandest" blvd in America upon completion, but it's a step in the right direction for continued Uptown development. I'm excited to see what projects go up following its completion. I mean look at what has already gone up/is planning to go up (Arise Post Oak, 1801 Post Oak, McNair Mixed-Use, etc).

 

(And yes, I'm certain there was a tinge of sarcasm in his statement ūüėā)¬†

I would agree. ¬†The¬†‚ÄúGrandest‚ÄĚ boulevards in the US and world-wide have one thing in common. ¬†They are pedestrian-friendly. ¬†Even the Vegas Strip, while broad and congested, provides¬†a decent¬†pedestrian experience. ¬†Broad sidewalks, a lot to see and do all the way along. ¬†Grand boulevards¬†aren‚Äôt lined¬†with parking lots like Post Oak is (even the new BLVD Place stuck a parking lot¬†roadside instead of hiding it ‚ÄĒ not a good look!). ¬†The city could have used the current BRT project¬†as an¬†opportunity to also tie together all of the various developments along¬†the street with an impressive and broad¬†promenade along both sides. ¬†From my view, though,¬†the project is all about the traffic experience and designers ignored¬†the pedestrian experience almost entirely.¬†Post Oak may someday rival the grandest boulevards in the great cities of the world, but it will take¬†a very looooooong time for that to happen, and a priority shift on the part of Houston. ¬†Probably won‚Äôt see it in our lifetimes.

 

Also, can the title of this thread be change Do  to Zadok?  That’s the correct spelling.

any chance these are just the new christmas trees for the holiday lighting and they are just testing placement etc? 

(they are wrapped in black plastic so i am glad you got a photo of what they look like under that...my first glance riding past them was: what in the heck?!...

edit to say i just saw the urbanfx link, so yes i guess that is what this is!

OMG! ūüėϬ†well, i was driving down Post Oak last night and they were indeed testing the now unwrapped trees and...

they are using those darn changing color lights on them! i may be alone here but i just think changing color lights feel cheap/tacky etc.

I prefer just white for the most part but could even bear with another solid color...

anyway...they had about 8 of them up and flashing away¬†ūüôÉ

Yeah I hate them. They are super tacky looking. Old 'real' looking trees are so much better.

Honestly I don't mind these trees since they are modern to match the arches etc...but yeah slowly changing colored lights are the worst haha! (and yep, I would have been happy with green christmas trees as well!...what ever happened to good old fashioned Christmas decorations!?)

Its a better balance than having all real trees wrapped in christmas lights year round. Real trees that can grow in and look nice and then fake light up trees to give some light and ambiance.

I was just heading north on Post Oak Blvd. and hit the red light right in front of this site/Hilton.  I think this is going to have a great and elegant street presence on Post Oak.  Even though its scale is less than what most had hoped for, I think this truly elevates the area just like the GFR at the Dinerstein project will.  It will be exciting to check back in 2-3 years when both of these have delivered and see how the surrounding site owners have responded and the level of interest from developers.  

 

On a side note, it was a very graceful drive down the Boulevard.  They really did a great job.

Probably parking garage. I'm about 150 feet to your right, but I'm back behind the pool so I'll at least have some buffer. Hopefully there's some decent clearance between us and the new structure.

Does the steel get sold for a pretty penny? looks like a lot of good material, anything they salvage usually from these?

 

Anything that is metal is typically recycled these days. The steel for the structure, the rebar that is embedded in the concrete, the wiring for electricity, and the conduits that are used to elevate wires and cables above the ceiling. Plenum is also recycled. Glass from windows is sometimes recycled. The frames for windows is usually recycled. If its aluminum frames then you bet. If its hollow metal then sometimes. Everything else is hard to sell like gypsum walls, concrete, wood, etc... Normally you don't get much out of it all and generally its put to the cost of paying for demolition and thats about it.

Crazy how they leave what I assume to be a perfectly good fire extinguisher and trash can in the building, soon to be rubble.  I'd have salvaged some of that stuff...
