thats your response to not having any skyscrapers proposed? that you have "full developments" consisting of 3 mid rise buildings?

heres a few buildings Houston currently has under construction, and some that are proposed. all of these are located in downtown with the exception of 2929 Wesleyan and The Sovereign.

40 story 2929 Wesleyan residential tower - u/c


24 story Skyhouse residential tower - u/c


The Sovereign 21 story residential - u/c


41 story tower at 609 Main


33 story Capital Tower


50 story 5 allen center


38 story residential


Marriott Marquis @ Discovery Green


a new Chevron signature tower planned to be 50-60 stories

50 story International Tower



as for "full on developments", Houstons got plenty of that too... the biggest one planned is the Hardy Rail Yard redevelopment project..

Looks like downtown will look different in just two years.

The sky house is starting to rise.
Just.a few months ago i was commenting on how there is nothing at bell, this changes all that.
This building fills in a huge gap. Plus the Savoy, Dats inn and Exxon renos are just blocks away.

Then there is talk of the luxury hi rises at Market Square.

Main street square is also improving with that new tower going up on the last empty spot in the area.
Macys has started demolition so hopefully we will see whats going up there.
609 main is close to there.

Hardy Rail Yards is dead, but the Sovereign is apart of the "full development" Regent Square.

I think most of the town square and urban village style development are future slums. Especially the ones that are more isolated without a viable economic engine to ensure its up keep.

thats what i thought too but they just released some new renderings of the Hardy Rail Yard this year and talks had been spurred up again about it on HAIF. either way some huge development will end up going there in the future.

heres a new 2013 rendering. i cant seem to find the new renderings of the green space, ect.

Why do I get the impression that some people haven't been to the state fair or even worse don't know what a fair is. The State Fair of Texas is not a music festival. There is live music but that is not the reason people go to it. I'd put the football games, food, games, attractions, animals, contests, auto show, and museums before the music.

A lot of these towers going up in Downtown/Uptown Dallas are as big as the new towers going up in the EC right now. Some nice looking towers though.

Austin's Frost Tower looks 1000 times better IMO.
