I forgot I took this one.    

It was nice to meet you!  Thanks for coming out.   Here's my photos of the mat pour this morning.

^^^ my gosh HAIF, judging from all of these extremely generous illustrations provided via our COOL, HARD WORKING, DYNAMIC and FAITHFUL photographers, THE PRESTON is going to become one of the most luxurious developments in the southwest.  this burgeoning edifice just reeks of ALL THINGS MIAMI in my opinion.  a TOAST to all involved...

Not one of the most attractive view from this angle of the building while under construction, should look a lot better once the facade goes up to cover it up.

This will be my favorite angle of this build when it's finished.

^^^ as i have stated a few times beforehand, this edifice's design just "reeks of the cool winds of MIAMI, FLORIDA".  we are just not accustomed to seeing this form of "COOL EASY BREEZY" condominium design within our fair city of houston, and especially with its forecasted height.  we shall be forever beholden to HINES development... for their seemingly never ending commitment/dedication to the future of our most wonderful/fair city...

I've always thought 2727 Kirby had a major Miami vibe.

  • Highrise Tower changed the title to Brava (Block 42) Residential High-Rise: 46-Stories

Not just Dallas.  They want a distinctive name and they realized there are apartment buildings all over the country with the Preston name, including San Antonio (and the little sister up north).  If one does a google search, one can see what they mean; there are apartment buildings with Preston in their name in almost every significant city one can think of.

Yeah, I know, but Dallas has a lot because Preston is a major road. The Chronicle's article states that "Preston" is being used by apartments throughout the country but only Dallas is specifically mentioned.

Why did they change the name to Brava, from The Preston?

 

The Preston worked better with the historic Market Square area.

 

"Brava!" is what you shout after a great performance from an opera diva. This building is two blocks away from our opera house. The hint of European culture and refinement and the association with young beautiful female singers are probably more marketable to this building's potential residents than anything involving historic Market Square.

The new parking garage there across the street is really going to be stinking up the joint when these two towers are finished.  Hopefully someone will see some value there and do something cool. I don't think the immediate area is hurting for office space, unfortunately, but put another residential tower right there and you could justify a nice grocery store on the ground floor.

That site is still planned for a 1m SF office tower developed by TC and Linbeck.  They are trying to secure lead tenants, which is certainly a challenge in the current climate, but I believe the designs have all been completed.

The new open parking garage certainly is an ugly pimple in an otherwise splendid area. Still better than the pustulant canker sore that was the chronicle garage.

Exactly, at least from the ground level its not too bad. Especially sense it has some GFR.

Yes, that one would be awesome too, even more so because demand would have justified it.  As it is, I was thinking about alternative possibilities.

How tall could 1m SF be?
