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...

Will Hanover BLVD be completed this year?

 

Spoke to the staff I believe the first few floors will be completed this year not sure about the rest of the building, hopefully though looks like their most promising project as yet!

All the best,

Downtown Houston and westheimer

 

 

That is my life for the past 22 years in this photograph! I see my 2 different apartment complexes I have rented and the condo i now own (all on McCue) and my office (once on Post Oak and now on Chevy Chase/Sage) ...I wonder what this photo would have looked like 22 years ago! ALOT different that is for sure!

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.
