I thought there would be high rises there. Too bad.

To each their own, I guess. I don't have a problem with high-rises fundamentally, but in Houston they tend to be pretty set back and generally disengaged from the street. The Southeastern building in the rendering doesn't look like anything special, but at least it helps move the street toward something a bit more like contiguity.

It looks set back far enough from Montrose that the trees might be kept. I really hope the trees are not cut down. 

The trees look to be in the city right-of-way.  Wouldn't that require city approval to cut them down?

I doubt they'll be cut unless the developer are planning to redo the sidewalk. They will probably trim the branches though, since they overhang quite far.

Do these oak trees tear up sidewalks and roads because they weren't correctly planted back in the day? And wouldn't the Post oaks on Post Oak Boulevard do the same one day once they got bigger?

The answer to both is yes. As we all know Live Oaks get enormous as they gain years. That is part of their beauty. This is what gives the area around Rice and The Audubon area of New Orleans it's charm. Expect the roots to move sidewalks and work around that. This should not be a difficult problem to resolve.

Houston is only 186 years old.  There's no way anyone could possibly anticipate that live oaks would push up sidewalks.

I don't think one follows the other.  In my neighborhood there are some absolutely enormous live oaks that were planted in the late 1930s.  Most people assume they are hundreds of years old but they are not.  So sidewalks have existed longer than many of the live oaks that are interfering with them.

I guess my point is that people have known for centuries that trees push up sidewalks, so the builders of sidewalks should compensate.

Vero Sade must have done a press release because the Houston Chronicle also has a story about their projects.

"A Houston-based development group has acquired prime sites in Houston and other cities for multifamily developments, including proposed projects in the Montrose and Heights neighborhoods.

Sade is also chairman of Sade Capital, a company specializing in multifamily and other assets. Daniel Bassichis is co-founder of New York and Texas-based Vero, formerly Admiral Capital Group, where he partners with retired San Antonio Spurs star and Basketball Hall of Famer David Robinson on investments that create value and make a positive social impact."
