This is the "vibrancy" that people claim Houston benefits from by not having zoning.

That thing is a roller coaster of emotions. 

A monster of a thing compared to the aerial shots higher up I get the Ashby hirise monster feeling.

But I know how cheap builders go here when it comes to parking and I convince myself that it could be worse 🙃 

The old Houston way would be:

Knock down all the surrounding homes for parking 

Or

Knock down less homes and build a fully exposed garage.

I make myself content by the thought of more height along Richmond.

This is the sort of higher density development that is needed inside the Loop.  Folks who live within the Loop are exposed to this sort of potential development, many of them know this.  For those who do not like the potential to have a large building built next to their property line they can take solace in the fact there are plenty of development controlled suburbs around town that would provide more security from a development like this.

I am not saying this is a wonderful development, or great building, but I suppose an office building is a better neighbor than a hip/cool bar.  What do you suppose other cities would have zoned Richmond Avenue in the greater Montrose area for?  Do you have a better proposal for a high density road like Richmond that’s realistic?
