From cranky over on HAIF:

Early stages of design - design will take another year
Development would be like City Center
3 buildings to be constructed in this order: medical tower, residential tower, luxury boutique hotel (the most luxurious in Houston or at least top 5)
Each building would have their own parking; underground is being considered but may not happen because of cost
All buildings would have first floor retail/restaurants with outdoor seating - this is why they want to close Palm street
The vision includes a performance stage
Palm street greenery would be open to the public but privately owned. One option they will explore is having the city turn Palm street into a public park
Palm street greenery would be enjoyable/designed to be used year round
Targeting all types of restaurants: family friendly, casual, fine, coffee shop, bars
Multiple entrances to buildings - all entrances will be attractive
Existing oak trees would be kept and additional trees and greenery would be added
Closing Palm street to make it all green space would be a beautiful entrance to Museum Park and would serve as a link between Museum District and Museum Park
Developers will continue to involve the neighborhood as plans progress.
