The Astoria Condos at 1405 Post Oak Boulevard


Recommended Posts

This is Houston. We change out buildings as quickly as the weather changes.

MCDONALD'S will be gone soon

 

Thats the same thing I was thinking. Maybe 5 years at the most if development trends continue the way they are going. It just seems out of place now.

So the biggest fast food chain also happens to produce a lot of items that end up as litter....shocked.   But why are we putting this on them? Once a person purchases their food its theirs a

McDonald’s has owned this land since 1988 it looks like. They sold a bit to RD so he can build The Titan, now Astoria.

There's barely been any progress in two weeks...

 

I honestly didn't see the crane move at all this past week. I still stand by what I said before that I feel BHP will beat Astoria to it's final height, even though BHP is still below grade.

 

BHP site is a constant hustle and bustle.

I can't imagine RD would cannabolize the view of the Cosmo residents to build another tower.

It 25 story if memory serve which would not block much of anything.. and they are already trying to seel the lot for a tower so ither way there would no effect of line of sight since they are so far apart no views would be obstracted...

The amreit property is nearly directly in front of the Cosmo. Anything tall built there will block the view of at least half of that side's view. I agree that eventually that'll happen, but RD certainly wouldn't want to really piss off former customers.

Think it will go residental regardless of comso , it would give Davis a trifacte in that area and he seems to favor that part for post oak... now that a huge lot of land is open do you really think they would pass it up ? RD or not.. He been chomping at the bits to build Titan anyway

Huge lot of land? It's pretty small. If a residential tower was built there an entire side would look into the cosmo. It makes no sense to do that as no one would want to buy a unit. I think you must be confused on the location or something. RD has a lot on his plate right now. The Astoria IS the Titan with an altered name. He will have less than zero interest in the AmREIT property.

Seems like Randall Davis could have found a piece of property somewhere nearby a little bigger, a little better than this?  I realized early on how tight things would be, but this is just plain ridiculous!

 

I would hope those residents on the east/south sides of the building realize they could be buying a home that may eventually have about a 25' view?!  Oh well.  A fool and their money....

 

As they say.

I'm still trying to figure out how parking in the garage is going to work. It really does look wide enough for two cars going up/down at the same time

I read in an earlier post the garage will only be for a 24/7 valet service. No self parking.

I can't see rich people wanting to give up that much freedom/privacy. The hassle would be immense particularly around peak times. I've never been in the Cosmo garage but I've seen inside and it looks to be designed similarly to this, except this is smaller.
