Crane going up this weekend according to the FAA filing.  

Well since these models have been revealed, I guess I can probably post the renderings...

This is really nice. I really like the way the curtain wall recedes into the building. 

Its worth noting to those defenders of Randall Davis how little things make a big difference in the quality of an overall design.

Look at Arabella and perhaps you will see the difference.

Hanover builds attractive high-rises.  I think we're lucky to have them.  Their joint project (Northshore) with Trammell Crow in Austin is nice also.   I had high hopes for Arabella, but it is turning out to be a bright white eyesore that I look at every day, and that bugs me.  Its been said before, but an advantage of living in such a building is that you don't have to look at it.

As a lifelong Houstonian, one of my regrets is how few developers here arrange for "good" architecture.  Compared to the late 70s, early 80s.  I recall that during that time, some people in Dallas were concerned that they weren't getting the same quality of design.  Since then, I think they have had a lot more good design that we have had here.

Has anyone “in the know” seen renderings of what the Apache project was expected to look like between the two completed phases of BLVD? I have a conspiracy theory that Apache never intends to build the building but negotiated the sale for tax or revenue reasons and will sell it back when it is more advantageous to the two companies.

What's up with the WF Post Oak men's bathroom? The automatic napkin dispenser has been broken for 6 months! I was told it was the custodial company who would be fixing it.  Does a $300 automatic dispenser really break the budget?

 

Someone is slacking, or somebody doesn't want to pay :wacko:

Should just support Koch and buy a Georgia-Pacific commercial dispenser. They're some of the best I've used. Reliable.

NO thank you.  Most do not support Koch and his brother and their ilk.  I'll take another Texas based company over Georgia Pacific any day.  Thanks.

Well then I am sure the dispenser will get fixed once a committee is appointed to determine the issue. Then they will conduct environmental studies to see if the dispenser is in fact causing issues to the ecosystem. Then they will....well it may be some time before it gets fixed.

typical talking points from the wrong direction and wrong side of history, but good luck with that sweetheart.

Moving things back to topic... here's the real question... what's planned for the next site south?  Another Hanover!? (LOL)

That's what I would like to know. It seems that little strip of land may not be useful for much unless The Ambassador is bought and torn down. What a great piece of property that would be.

Wonder what headphones they are using, I use some Sennheiser RS175s with my desktop computer for late night gaming or movies occasionally. Nice cans

Thanks @ekdrm2d1 for putting the update about Rooftop Cinema Club in the correct thread where this is going in, BLVD Place.

Thanks for the shout-out concerning the duplicate thread, considered it done.This

Roof Top movie concept is a great addition to the Galleria District's overall reputation for being a global destination.

With I Pic cemented in the River Oaks District and the old veteran Edmund Cinema in nearby Greenway Plaza. The

area get's a variety of movie theater options.As I said before.. that's pretty cool.
