dang those people in the adjacent apartments...bye bye view...and sunlight...

 

 

 

I'm kind of welcoming the dystopian mazerunner wall. Facing dead west is terrible in the summer, I rarely ever open my blinds and maybe my electric bill will go down now.

To be fair most stand alone retail like a fast food restaurants are around 75% parking 

 

Thats also standard for nearly any development of any makeup in Houston, with slight variations depending on the program. If you aren't building a parking garage, the general rule of thumb is that 2/3rds of your lot is going to be parking. If you have a parking garage then its only 1/3rd, but 1/3rd is still a lot!

Literally a little bit more than half this development is just the parking garage. 

 

If you don't like it, keep pushing the city to dump the ridiculous parking minimums and shift to market based parking. Even though we don't have a lot of public transit yet, that market based parking probably would cut down the size of parking garages from taking up 1/3rd of a development to at least 1/4 or even 1/5.

^^^ this particular edifice is being beautifully constructed.   the overall scale and scope... seems to be perfectly posh for POST OAK BLVD.  customers alike, are going to be patronizing this particular location just to be seen here.  brilliantly planned... brilliantly constructed... and brilliant location...

This building has a really cool street presence it looks good!

I think when more and more buildings get built with the idea of street presence, we’ll see fewer and fewer developers default to parking in the front, regardless of ordinance.

I have to give the developers credit for being "brave" in pushing their building so close to the edge of the street.  It seems so out of character in a city like Houston that when you see it, it stands out as being something exceptional.

Literally every building going forward should be designed in this manner.

They could be financially strapped due to the pandemic ... In a year, when things get back to some semblance of normalcy it will be a good time to be in the hospitality business.  Right now, I'm sure many restaurant owners are operating at a loss. There are many hotels in Houston that are delinquent on their mortgages, including the Hilton Post Oak.
