When is ground breaking?

 

The office portion will most likely have to be substantially preleased, then they get financing, then demo of the existing structure, and the economy can't collapse in the meantime. 2 years?

The website also now says 50 stories. I'm guessing they are counting the two story volume on the roof in order to get to that number.

 

I would LOVE to get a 50 story tower here. That means 600-700 feet tall?

I think so. The "shortest" 50 story building in Houston is Three Allen Center at 685 feet. The restaurant on top is going to have some amazing views.

Definitely in the 700' range, this thing is massive compared to everything else. Also 410 apartment units in 1 building just feels insane; I mean wow. 1.6 million square feet is also a massive footprint.

I had a chance to stay at the Intercontinental over the Holidays. The place was packed out and there were a ton of special events/parties hosted over the two weeks I was there. The rooms were very nice and the service was excellent. A huge upgrade to the offerings in the TMC. I also noticed lots of walking activity next door at the apartment tower and most of those folks were in scrubs. I'd imagine demand is there. Hope this proposal rises because the first project knocked it out of the park. This one might just build a new park.

So KincaidAlum, I noticed the Boston location. How long have you been up there? For some reason I thought you lived here. Hope you had a nice holiday.
