Take a look at the new Emancipation Park in Houston

Quote:

Emancipation Park in Houston has undergone a major transformation courtesy of Chicago-based Perkins + Will. The revamp to the 10-acre park has been a long time coming. Preliminary work began in 2011, but now the project is finally complete, offering a new “Recreation Center” and spiraling sculpture that reflects the vision of the park’s founders.

Opened to the public in 1872 by its founders, Reverend John Henry “Jack” Yates, Richard Allen, Richard Brock, and Reverend Elias Dibble, Emancipation Park is firmly rooted in African-American history. At the time of its opening, the park was the first truly public park in Houston. In the years that followed, it became a vibrant space, hosting games of tennis and volleyball as well as numerous other community activities. Boasting a swimming pool from the 1930s, the site was also the only place where African-Americans could swim in the city.

The American Building (811 Dallas) is being prepped for demo, floor-by-floor. A new development will eventually take up the entire block.

A luxury condominium project is poised to break ground near Memorial Park this spring after preselling half of its units in less than six months.

Stolz Partners LLC plans to break ground on The Sophie at Bayou Bend by early May. The seven-story, 42-unit condo is set to rise on a nearly two-acre site at 6017 Memorial Drive, just west of Westcott Street and the Bayou Bend Collections and Gardens.

Gosh, this Emancipation thing is fine... Contemporary Chicago's firms are good like it's somewhat insolent, as ever, showing why today's design is the best ever.

Well, at least, I like the fact that they're very advertised over here.

My wife works at Hilcorp (1111 Travis St) across the street and they own that building. Heard about the demo through her but she has no idea what's planned. They are keeping garages for now...just demoing the building.

Hans' Bier Haus, a different bar on Quensby Ave. It too is adjacent to the high-rise.

If there's ground level retail, aesthetically pleasing and it's got some height (10 stories) then it's not that bad. Downtown needs garages..bad if its going widdle away at all the surface lots.

Urbannizer Feb 16, 2017 6:24 PM

The garage will have GFR; an office tower will be built above the garage when a tenant is secured.
