Yea, a LOT of that was off by quite a bit…most notably the population standings.

This popped up on my YouTube timeline. Hope everything will get off the ground. Only time will tell though.

So they are converting both 1801 Smith AND the Esperson Buildings to residential? That's great. I hope they do as good a job as converting the Texaco Building to the Star.

They need to convert the Continental Building, the Gulf Oil/Exxon Building and that decrepit Days Inn Building in addition to 1801 Smith. That would give that area a nice little neighborhood feel. I remember when it was just Houston House and that residential tower across 45 in that area. Now there's 2 Houston Houses, the 1825 residential, the one UC on Main, Block 334 Apartments... that's going from 2 residential buildings to 8 in the last 10 years with potentials in Continental, Exxon and Days Inn.

Plus the 2 on Austin, the 3 around McGowen area and the Hamilton, Camden and Peacock are just a few blocks away. Isn't there a new one coming in Caroline? A little TLC and that area will be top notch. They need to find a solution for the addicts tho. Can't have people pooping on the sidewalk in an up and coming area.

One of the two Esperson Buildings is slated for a (partial, I believe) residential conversion. AFAIK, they have not started that project, so I have not included it in my list. The Gulf Oil/Exxon Building you refer to is actually the Humble Oil/Exxon Building (Gulf Oil and Exxon or not related) and I agree it would make for a great residential conversion (much better than the owner's announced plans to redo it into modern office space; hopefully that concept is dead). There is a little talk stirring about he possibility of at least a partial conversion of the former Continental Building (1600 Smith). And of course there is a proposal to convert the Holiday Inn/Days Inn building to residential. I'm not sure what has become of that.

Yes, there has been quite the upswing in residential in the southern part of downtown (in addition to a boom in the northern part). Downtown residential properties south of McKinney Street:

Houston House
Beaconsfield condos
Four Seasons Residences
Plaza Peacock
2016 Main (immediately across Pierce Elevated, as referenced by atadytic19)
One Park Place
SkyHouse Houston
SkyHouse Main
Block 334
Eighteen25
1701 Caroline
The Hamilton
Camden Downtown

1801 Smith (under conversion)
1810 Main (under construction; near completion)

As you mentioned there has also been a bunch of residential development just across the Pierce Elevated to the south and west (north of Elgin):

Skyline at Midtown
Camden City Centre
The Edge Condominiums
Rise Condominiums
Post Midtown Square
Metro Midtown
2222 Smith
CityPlace Midtown
Camden Midtown
2310 Main Street
Camden McGowan Station
Drewery Place
Camden Travis Street
Pearl @ the Mix
Pearl Marketplace @ Midtown
2111 Austin
Sabine Street Lofts
The Allen
Tinsley on the Park
Ashton on West Dallas
plus blocks and blocks of townhouses.

Crane base is in. It looks like this is officially a go. Really excited about this one!

I feel the same way. CityPlace Tower will finally have high-rises around it creating sort of a skyline around Central Expressway. I’ve always thought CityPlace Tower looked kinda out of place due to its height.

The high-rise density in Uptown looks nice so far.

DOWNTOWN BIG"6"..What direction are they going???-9d4afced-c080-4f21-968d-4c82643bdae0.jpeg

The area is already served by the CityPlace/Uptown Subway Station. I just hope the NIMBYs in the Knox-Henderson area are more progressive in their thinking.

I always confusing Humble with Gulf. Both are iconic Houston landmarks (although Gulf is more architecturally interesting). Maybe I am just secretly wanting that one to be converted to residential too. It is close to a handful of other residential/ hotel buildings so it would compliment well. Houston has lost so many of its older stock.

I do agree that the plan to convert Humble to office is stupid. Vacancy rates have been up for years and taking all that sq footage out of the picture would be great for the market. In addition, the plan to add a glass wall over the building's fins would turn an icon into just another glass building.

Great job compiling that list +1. All the conversation usually goes to Austin, but the other Texas cities have been doing a lot. Austin is focused on a limited number of corridors while Dallas and especially Houston has so much going on in so many different directions. Allen Parkway, River Oaks, multiple spots in Midtown, multiple spots Downtown, east Downtown, UH area improving. And that's just in the loop. We haven't even begun to talk about Uptown and the westheimer, Richmond corridors.

Hopefully Houston's next building boom will include more mixed use
