I think there's going to be a new building on the corner of Post Oak/ San Felipe (verizon wireless) eventually. Property was bought and verizon moved to new building in pavillions.

I can imagine, with all the projects. Generally speaking, what times does the noise start and stop? Can you see a lot of it from your apartment? That part of downtown is really changing.

I have a direct corner view of the 609 Main project. From the roof of the parking garage come the views of the residential tower at the Market Square Garage as well as the residential tower about to start up according to Urbannizer.

As far as times, well, let's just say some days are much longer in terms of noise than others. And when they're doing concrete pours, all bets are off in terms of time... ;)

As busy as I thought the Houston construction scene was when I visited a couple of months ago, it has ramped up even more when I dropped over the Christmas weekend. The crane is up at 1885 Yorktown, the work on the Galleria is moving right along, the two Hyatts are starting to get clad, and that's just in the Galleria area.

Those apartments don't look more than ten years old. Even at build-out, they are essentially replacing the existing units one for one. Ah, well...:shrug:

The article indicates about 18 years old, but that's still amazing. I wonder if there's anywhere else that buildings of that age are torn down.

'Urban' is how they should put that. I've also heard The Woodlands called 'urban' and it is far from it. Buyers out in that area are usually looking for land, not stacked apartments above a Starbucks.

Well, update on this:

After not hearing anything from the complex for much longer that I would've liked I finally got an answer and hopefully a truthful one at that

"The redevelopment, if ever, shouldn't happen for another 4-5 years"

THANK GOD. I've grown up in Houston and knew this could happen, but not the first year after livin inside the loop.

Skanska plans at a future date to construct Capitol Tower on the former Houston Club Building site. In the meantime, construction continues on a 7-story parking garage with est completion of 4Q15. After a decision to proceed with the new tower is made, Skanska will expand the garage to ten floors and build the tower. See website and video.

It's just a shame the design of the building is so damn boring. When Mr. So and so was talking about the design of the building I almost fell asleep. Then there is the other guy saying "we started from the inside out." Exactly, because everyone can tell you didn't do diddly when it came to the exterior. The inside lobby isn't anything new. They have been making generic lobbies like that since the 80's or earlier. Its great theres a new tower but the only thing good about it is the open air meeting spot.

As I recall, they had a dozen patterns for the exterior that were all a variation of what they picked. That said, it could have been a lot worse.

But I'm getting hints the tower may not rise immediately, although the activity onsite seems to imply they are full speed ahead. We'll know soon enough.

shakman Jan 8, 2015 3:00 PM

Capital Tower will also be well hidden due to its orientation and close proximity to its neighbors. I think this tower is an excellent design; especially since I views this development as an infill project.

It's an alright looking building but its basically just a rectangle. It looks fit for a suburban highrise to me. Yea, its infill and thats great but I think a beautiful original design would go well next to the Pennzoil building. Anyways, I hope it looks nice when its finished.
