Saw a guy cutting wind slats in the construction netting, turns out he works for Urban Genesis as part of their demolition and ground prep department. I asked when this was starting up, he said it usually takes about 3-4 months after the land is cleared due to getting permits from the city. He said it used to take 2-3 months but now takes 5-6 months. Asked him about their project near the Farmer's Market which used to be the Greensheet printing building and offices. He said the building was demolished but the slabs still need to be removed but they will be working on it in the near future.

Whenever I hear the 2-3 months thrown around I'm sure that was the case 10 years ago when not much was being built. Its been 5-6 months for awhile now, even back when I was still in Houston, and in some cases 5-6 months (sometimes 4) was the best you could hope for with an EXPEDITOR! The permit office simply doesn't have the staff for the volume they get. Its crazy.

That's unfortunate, especially given the fact that people are paying for the services.  Also delays the new property getting on the tax rolls.

Ironically, this is why one in Houston should be thankful for no zoning, extensive design commission meetings, and the many back of room meetings developers in most cities have to do to get "buy-in" from city leaders to even convince them to build in the first place. Houston has very little of any of this, otherwise it would take twice as long. I do agree with you though, simply the selfish motivation to increase the tax base as soon as possible should be a reason for Houston and other cities to properly staff these institutions to get these projects out the door as quick, and procedurally correct as possible.

This seems like a great addition to the neighborhood to bring in more residents. I'll be disappointed if it doesn't include at least some bottom floor retail space. It would be a shame not to take advantage of the proximity to the Columbia Tap Trail and METRO Bus and Rail stops a few blocks away.
