It would look so much better if they went with a more industrial design on the top floors to match the garage, this looks like a garage wearing a fancy hat :( 

Still have hope it will come out better than the rendering :(

Did some research and these buildings usually have really neat amenities (idk if this is already the norm)

  • Fully furnished units (if desired)
  • In house crew professional cleaning 
  • An app for the building that lets you unlock doors, register for classes, or chat with the building crew 
  • Huge co-working space + private work space 
  • Not only a gym, but private lockers and a studio that offers classes like pilates, yoga, kick boxing, etc.

Also, if anyone wants a perspective what it might look like, the X Phoenix is somewhat similar to our renderings except their garage is covered and it's a bit shorter.

This is what the residents are going to be looking down at, a junkyard that Joy Boone wouldn't sell to them.

In reality, the residents won’t even be able to see this unless they literally hang their head out a window and look straight down.

I hate this thing. If it were downtown, uptown, or TMC it would bother me much less but the Museum District has a much more human scale than those other areas filled with massive garages and wide streets. The garage mahauling of Houston spreads.

At least in this case, I think the garage being particularly obnoxious is intentional.

Yep, just wait until the big arms and the snarling mouth are installed.

A chicken for every pot. A high-rise for every neighborhood. It's the Houstonian dream. 88b27c2a80b08ec49d4bc692b58bc6c2.jpg

The human scale is what makes the Museum District more homey than the Montrose anymore.  I don’t agree with those on here who say the Museum District is the best lifestyle Texas has to offer, but it’s a domesticated urban life under live oaks we can all recognize as Southeast Texan, and there’s more to see and do than in similar neighborhoods in our smaller cities and towns with similar streetscapes.

Calumet and Crawford are two of the widest streets/boulevards that intersect, so at least X is perched at that wide spot in the public rights of way.  Two of these adjoining corners are being marketed by JLL now with for sale signs up, if I saw right.
