yes, this place has the look of complete boredom. it reminds me of a modern day "mayflower". however, i have the sense that at night time, this place is going to perform color variations, which of course are of today's new trends. plain and ordinary in the day time, but a beautiful color show at night. i mean, it's the very least that the hyatt regency can do... right?

It's a good article, although it would be nice to see just one article that doesn't joke about stereotypes (even this one had a couple). But overall, this is probably the best article I've seen on Houston in a long time. It doesn't really discuss problems that still exist, but then again, one has to consider the audience of the article.

The two skyhouses look good next to each other. Better than I expected.

I'm all for it as well, but I just thought it would look better by Discovery Green. Now seeing the rendering, it does look better than I expected.

More evidence that demand for office space downtown remains strong - a fast growing engineering firm is relocating.

Meet the Fast 100: Grand Parkway engineering company plans to double employees, space

"...Zarinkelk Engineering Services Inc. will move its offices to a new location next month and plans to double its employee count over the next year.
The Houston-based civil and structural consulting engineering company plans to hire around 15 new employees — mid-level engineers as well as recent college graduates — to its roster and is moving downtown mid-October to Caroline Street..."

I'll have to keep an eye out for them. Fort Worth is mostly getting new wrap-arounds. And the Trinity Terrace.

He's referring to the new Hyatt Regency, located at the NW corner of Sage & W Alabama.

Uh-oh...

Wondering what's happened with some of the high-profile announcements? This might be a clue. If the backlog is huge for residences, it can't be too much shorter for commercial development...

This could also be good news since it can be interpreted as great strength in the Houston market. IMO nothing of major concern.
