That skywalk seems unnecessary.

Future phases call for a multifamily high-rise and medical office building. See pg 64.

Website is up and the rendering shown appears to have the development without the pedestrian bridge over Allen Parkway.

Meanwhile, a few new renderings are up with some previously seen ones - c/o BOGZA

In the aerial shot, there appear to be 3 lots directly "behind" this project that are ripe for development. Anything doing on those lots?

The largest of the three blocks is divided by the Beth Israel & Founders Memorial Cemeteries. The one in the middle is still for sale, while the one to the right is now the home of a two-story dental office that opened within the last year.

The site itself is hemmed in pretty well. To the north is Allen Parkway & Buffalo Bayou Park. Directly east is the Historic Oaks of Allen Parkway Village, a public housing development on the National Register of Historic Places. To the south, directly behind the proposed site, is the Tinsley on The Park apartments, completed in the past year. A block to the west is the Federal Reserve Bank and the Ashton on West Dallas apartments.

Construction on $500M Buffalo Bayou mixed-use could kick off next month

Quote:
Construction on The Allen — a condo, hotel, office and retail project lined up for a six-acre tract off Allen Parkway — could start next month.
A filing on Texas' licensing and regulation website lists an April 15 construction start date.

Houston-based DC Partners along with Tianqing Real Estate Development LLC — the U.S. subsidiary of China-based Tianqing Group Real Estate Co. Ltd. — are developing the project at 1711 Allen Parkway. In 2017, the New York-based luxury chain Thompson Hotels joined the mix.

DC Partners President Roberto Contreras told the Houston Business Journal in 2016 the mixed-use project would have an estimated $500 million price tag.
The state filing lists a $105 million construction cost for a scope of work that includes the new hotel, condo building, restaurants, retail, parking garage, ballroom and pool deck. It shows St. Louis-based architecture firm HOK as the design firm.

A DC Partners spokeswoman said the sales gallery for The Residences at The Allen was under construction and a project update as well as new renderings would be available in the coming weeks.

^ It's lost a lot of its chutzpah. And height.

I like Dallas, but I think that Houston is the best of the big three cities in Texas. It has the best climate. It's greener than Dallas, which is a bit of a dust bowl. Houston also has the best architecture by far. Austin, by contrast, has a lot of lame boxes, and it's adding more. Austin is a nice city, but its buildings stink.
