  1. Today workers were replacing the doors that face Main Street. It was formerly a night-club and from the street it looks like it may still be intact.
  2. I can take a crack at expanding the map next go-round
  3. Commerce Towers has tunnels, so there is a precedent for residential with tunnel access. New build residential tunnel access on the other hand...
  4. ArCH is moving into this currently empty space, across the street from spaghetti warehouse. After a design competition and build-out, move-in is scheduled for February 2017. https://aiahouston.org/v/registration/Re-Imagine-Architecture-Center-Houston-Design-Competition/fn/
  5. I was in Tulsa last week, and I used to occasion to book a room in the Aloft hotel they have there. It was similarly a repurposing of an old building, in that case some sort of modernist office building in the midst of their civil government complex (surrounded by a convention center, courthouse, govt offices, etc). It was fantastic from a customer experience perspective. It really made me even more excited that this is the brand taking over this building - this hotel is going to be a hit and a really cool addition to the neighborhood.
  6. Starting to install the pedestrian bridge from Commerce Street.
  7. Talked to a guy who has a lease on 911 Franklin Street, in between La Calle Tacos and the Houston Watch Co. It is being built out as a bar. It appears to be the same guy as Brewery Tap.
  8. Man that space is so small I thought it was an entrance to the Binz building
  9. The diamond cut stainless steel cladding on the portico has been removed and is being replaced. This building, which is the undisputed heavyweight champion of ugly exteriors facades in the entire Main Street Market Square entertainment district, was previously Club Heat and Club Spade's. This is the final remaining retail space on the east side of the 500 block, and if it is indeed being worked on would leave only three spaces left on Main without a known active project.
  10. This thread is for a different building. Hard to keep em all straight. Perhaps the subjects of these topics could be changed to what is going up in them?
  11. Except that you can't - if you are just starting out in the world and can only afford in the $120k range to buy. There is nothing in River Oaks or Montrose that small. I think that one of the angles on these micro-lofts that we seem to all be overlooking is that while they cost more on a per-square-foot basis than in many markets, they are small enough so that single-income people early in their career can actually afford to buy them.
  12. Noticed that they had demoed this building when I drove by Sunday. Previously this was:
  13. Speaking to a manager at El Big Bad, he informed me that this is being renovated into a night club.
