editor Posted February 28, 2021 Share Posted February 28, 2021 You can tell that Spring is here, because my wife is once again talking about moving us back to Houston. We're still months away from the end of our current lease, so there's no hurry. But in light of recent events, I thought I'd throw this out there to see if it's a factor or not: Two of the places she's considering for us are SkyHouse River Oaks (2031 Westcreek) and SkyHouse Downtown (1725 Main). SkyHouse R.O. gives us more space in our budget, which is nice. But SkyHouse Downtown puts us within walking distance of the Cathedral, the train, and all the other downtown goodies that didn't exist when we last lived in 77002. It's my understanding that SkyHouse Downtown is on a high-priority section of the electrical grid, so during the storm it never lost power, while SkyHouse River Oaks did. Sure, the chances of Houston getting hit with another big winter storm are pretty small. But it's certainly going to get whacked by another hurricane in the next five years or so. Any thoughts about those properties, and the value of being on a certain section of the electrical grid? 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
