"Site under construction" seems to mean it's not going to be accessible for a little while.

Anyway, has anybody seen JLL's Q2 report? There were 2 million sf of space leased and Downtown's office vacancy is under 10%.

Energy companies dominate Q2 real estate activity

HAIF is back in operation again.

BisNow says Houston's retail vacancy rate dropped to 6.3% (the lowest they've ever recorded). It suggests now's a good time to build stores. (And at CBRE's conference yesterday a lament was heard that downtown doesn't have a large grocery store yet). All in due time, I guess.

DNV-GL gets bigger (and the Chron misspells their name).

DMV GL expanding Katy headquarters

This rendering and/or angle makes it look much better. The white will look very nice I think.

You're thinking of another Austin, not the current Austin.

It's still pretty granola there. Which is not a bad thing. That's what help makes Austin a great town.

I see. Tacky "Silicon Valley" Austin. Needs more hippies.

I stopped reading after the first couple of hundred words. I found the introduction misleading and in some cases false. So typical.

Why wouldn't they? Many are multi family projects using the downtown residential incentives program.. Plus, billions are being poured into downtown before the super bowl.
