That's a really cool way to treat what would otherwise be an uninspiring parking deck.

Technically, that credit should go to the architects since the developers here (Wood Partners, Phillips Development) and a number of the Novare projects use the same architectural firm.

The concrete is pretty well hidden...if you're talking about the parking garage.

From what I've understood, it was designed to have the concrete exposed in most of the places it already is (garage & side facing along Almeda).

Also, welcome to lniekamp who is a representative of Mosaic.

It looks like a hybrid version of these condos in Atlanta.

Bit of a drive-by photo taken this afternoon. The second tower looks close to topping out.

The second tower topped out in September, and the ceremony was held on September 26th.

Here are photos taken from Hermann Park this afternoon...

I love these buildings. When I was back in houston and walked around Herman Park, they had a really good presence. Maybe someday, Herman Park will be enclosed by towers, making it into a sort of Central Park of Houston. That day is far off, but now we are 2 towers closer to that possible realization.
