I much prefer this new design. Also just realized I live right across McCue from this. Would love for the empty lot at the corner of McCue and Richmond to be developed.

Ahhh, this site is that giant, empty lot next to Best Buy isn’t it? If so, great! Always thought it would be perfect for a low/mid rise tower.

It will be sooner than later as the MCNair mixed used development will probably spur development on that empty lot.

This is good. That part of uptown needs a little TLC and newer development.

I wonder how long the Garden Oaks Apts on Richmond and McCue across from the shopping center will last.

Crazy thought, in 10 years Uptown Houston approaches parity with Downtown Houston in terms of square footage

I like this. Is the developer linked to the Bristol Parc? It would be nice if that building got a fresh coat of paint with this influx of capital. It might be the most tired looking (occupied) building in the whole city!

Now that you mention it, I am curious as to whether residential is included in square footage or is it only business. Currently I believe the TMC is larger than downtown in terms of square footage. The Uptown area is certainly huge, but is designated as having approximately half the square footage ad the Med Center. My eyes do not see it that way.

The number most often seen is for office space square footage.  I doubt the Medical Center has exceeded downtown.  According to the TMC website, "TMC’s campus encompasses 50 million developed square feet." Downtown has almost 43 million square feet of just commercial office space (with almost 2 Million square feet under construction). That does not count the dozens of hotels, government buildings, the GRB (1.8 MSF), MinuteMaid Park (1.26 MSF), Toyota Center, St. Josephs' Hospital...

 

Likewise, I doubt Uptown will  approach downtown in square footage, even in ten years.  Let's not forget that downtown has also been adding square footage at a pretty rapid pace (almost 2 million square feet of office space under construction currently, plus several high-rise and mid-rise apartment buildings.)  For a point of reference, while Uptown probably still has more square footage in hotels and certainly in residential, Uptown only has about 17 Million Square Feet of office space.

I will take three 50 million plus business districts in Houston by 2030
