there you go again diminishing Houston. I was replying to a point DIRECTLY.

why do you always have to be like that.
Did you even READ the post I quoted? Or everytime you see me post you just jump in with the same hater comment.go read the post I quoted and stop making an arse of yourself

He said that there are no equivalent in Houston and I showed that there were now you are saying that every city has them. That is not what he said. He said HOuston does not have them and i showed that they do.

you are always acting like a spoil brat trying to bring down Houston when others are not even boosting Houston. Show me where I said it was the best, I am just showing that there are equivalents in Houston. Do you know what Equivalent means?

get a Life Paul, dedicating your life to hating on a city is just petty

Dude once again where did I say anything about Houston in a derogatory fashion

The OP obviously has an agenda and you are perpetuating it

fari point on the specific point addressed though i think there was more context to the reply which you also filtered out in your quote

Sensitive anyone...

He said there were NO equivalent in Houston and I posted that there WERE some. I mentioned NOthing about better. but you have to come in like I am competing with ATL. I have no idea about the condo scene in ATL and I don't think Houston has that many condos.
There were two errors in this thread

1. That there are no condo's in Dt equivalent to the ones someone posted
2. That most of Hoouston's condos were in downtown.

two errors, I corrected them. I didn't talk them up, didn't say if they were nicer or superior. I just corrected the errors.

saying every city has them. Has what?? all I did was show that some of them are in downtown.

I did not reply to the OP. I replied to two other posters. You are the one going with the theme of the op. in a competitive nature. I just gave information that could be useful to someone who doesn't know.

grow up. Trying to one up the kid whose daddy just got a new car so he no longer has to walk to schoolby saying jimmy's daddy got a better one, is just childish. The point is not who has the better car, the point is the poor kid no longer has to walk to school

And me grow up - seriously HTown I am not the one who needs to chill...

You have this thread way off task, surprisingly

Just admit it. you saw that I had posted pictures and instead of reading the post you jumped to a false conclusion.

just admit it. You erroneously thought I was saying Houston had more.
Go ahead, be a man and admit it

Bayou Lofts
2016 Main

aaaaaallllll of these in Downtown
I wasn't clear on what I meant, so I stand somewhat corrected on Four Seasons and 2016 Main. When I said "Houston has no condos equivalent to the above downtown," I meant contemporary high rise condominium towers as were featured on the ATL post. Four Seasons and 2016 do meet my definition of a high-rise, but they are not contemporary in style nor age. The Four Seasons is 30 years old and the clunky 2016 is at least that old. The closest contemporary high-rise is the Royalton on Allen Parkway about a mile or so from downtown. Park Place (your first photo) is the new rental apartment building I referenced in my post.

Looking at both the pictures and the list of properties in your post, I assume you agree with me then that outside of the the Four Seasons and 2016, the predominant owner residential stock in DT proper is "loft" style, not high-rise and not contemporary. That said, I think this is great, since it demonstrates a maturity in the Houston mind-set in favor of preserving the old vs. tearing down and starting fresh.

Ok, now that you are more clear, I get what you mean. And yeah, Dt is not where you would find them. Uptown/TMC/ Greenway would be where you would find the more contemporary stuff.

I'm so tired of Houston being compared to Atlana. A 2 million city vs a 420,000 city? UGH!
