  1. What ever is decided trenching the freeway is a potential disaster during heavy rains or tropical cyclones. Below grade freeways always flood in Houston. Just see 288 May 2015, Southwest freeway June 2001, I-10 March 1992 Just to name a few. People must always come first.
  2. I believe segments H and I-1 are scheduled to begin construction March 2016 with a completion date of October 2020
  3. It appears 609 is 20 some feet taller than the 240 foot garage across the street. This means they are approximately 1/3rd the way up. This is going to be one tall building.
  4. I hope this is true. Change the hideous eyesore. But I am going to hold off. Still waiting on news of the Great Southwestern building. Chronicle Garage Delenda Est
  5. Construction cam is frozen on September 1st for some reason
  6. I have seen midtown go through incredible changes from the way it was 20 years past. Does anyone know how many apartments/condos have gone up? A few dozen high rises in this area would create the impression of a massive skyline stretching from downtown to the Texas Medical center interrupted by Hermann park. The medical center tapers off at the 7000+ block. Being Houston I do not think this is just a pipe dream. It just may happen sooner than we expect. The Houston metro area has had the largest total population increase from 2000 to 2014 of any metropolitan area in the United States averaging over 100,000 increase every year.
  7. Any news out there on the Great Southwestern remodeling.
  8. I do not understand the complaint. Ballparks of both the major and minor leagues from the beginning have had advertising. Look up pictures of ballparks at the turn of the last century. How does this hurt the reputation?
  9. Great photo. In a few months the Catalyst will also come into view and maybe the Great Southwestern will be lit up.
  10. Are the boundaries of DT Chicago Lincoln Park to the "north", Grant Park to the south and the interstate to the west? Their DT seems massive relative to ours.
  11. These apartments do have a potential set of problems including freeway car fires, flying tires or anything else that occurs on our freeways. It will be interesting to see how the rentals go.
  12. I hope all the residence of that apartment building are physically unattractive. I imagine a "hot" woman standing or dressing by the window may distract a few motorists. Yikes!
  13. I wonder if these apartments are any closer than the St. Joseph parkway High rise on the west bound lanes where I-45 curves north.
  14. Some of you sound like curmudgeons. Ease up. Children love this place. I know it looks out of place but so do many of other things in our haphazard and dynamic city. There are few places for the little ones in the DT. Watching the children enjoy themselves adds to the downtown.
  15. I would guess northeast of the medical center somewhere where midtown transitions into montrose. Damians I believe is in Midtown Excuse me I mean northwest of the medical center
  16. Nothing of major significance. I believe an ancient Sumerian temple.
  17. I agree with the above statement. One other thing, from my perspective, the skyline appears more symmetrical due to the new construction east of Main St. The downtown is rounding out. Hope all the other residential projects come online. I count 12 under construction or finished, 2 ready for start (Marlowe and Great Southwetern) and 6 iffys.
  18. Exactly how many stories is this structure planned for? Does it presently include a hotel or not?
