Montrose parking garage designed to be 'future proofed'

Quote:
The parking garage at the Fairview District was designed with conversion options in mind.

The parking garage at the Fairview District, a mixed-use development underway in the Montrose area, will mirror most parking structures in that it'll take up around half the total space of the development it serves. It won't always be that way, though. The garage was "future proofed," Gensler's Peter Merwin said, and designed in such a way that can easily be converted into a multifamily development.

Instead of being designed with ascending and descending ramps, the Fairview District's roughly five-story parking garage will feature a single ramp on one side of the garage. The boxy structure of the garage itself will house five flat levels with ceiling heights between 10 feet and 15 feet. Should Houston's love of cars wane over the years, the ramp will be easily removable, Merwin said, and the concrete structure will easily facilitate a conversion. He designed the garage in a way that'll be easily convertible to an apartment development, though it could feasibly be converted to an office development, too.

^ Every city in America, take note: this is how all parking structures should be built moving forward.

Why would they block the flow of air with that greenery?

"BHP's new Uptown digs unfold in 30 employee-friendly floors"
Nancy Sarnoff, The Houston Chronicle, July 13, 2017

Quote:
At the new offices of BHP Billiton Petroleum, employee dining options include a cafeteria serving a variety of cuisines for $5 a plate; a coffee bar with French pastries and muffins; and a takeaway operation where workers can order a hot meal or freshly prepared salad from their computers to pick up moments later....The Houston-based oil and gas arm of BHP, a midsize oil and gas company owned by Australian mining conglomerate BHP Billiton Corp., recently moved into a 600,000-square-foot office tower with interior features seemingly inspired by Apple stores, art museums and the campuses of Silicon Valley tech giants.

Billiton is a good looking tower that really stands out in Uptown.
