Can't say i'm a fan of the drive-thru, it looks weird. the whole building looks strange....

Are there windows on the left side of the Maverick building? If so, their view is pretty much diminished.

What are the cross streets of this building? It does have a really odd look to it.

You are not the only one...

from HDRC notes

RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends conceptual approval based on the findings above with the following stipulations:
1. The possibility of vehicular access through College Street is explored
2. The fenestration pattern along the west side of the front facade is revised to align as close as possible to the adjacent
Maverick building.
3. Window proportions follow nearby historic facades
4. More articulation is incorporated on the east and south elevations to avoid large expanses of blank walls
5. Information on location of mechanical systems is submitted during final approval
There are windows facing East on the Maverick. Their view will be gone, but they will at least get some light. It looks like only the front two windows align with the lot line; not so much for the rest of it.

To the East is Broadway-Losoya/Houston. To the West is Jefferson-N. Presa/Houston. College St. is the one "behind" the hotel.

510 million? For a 10 story building? Its isn't even a Waldorf. That can't be right. I can figure 51 million for the building, not 51 million a floor. It must be a typo.

The cost must have been estimated by Dr. Evil
"510 MILLION dollars!"

That's a big typo. That's twice as much as the Austonian isn't it? Build us a 700 footer with that $510 mil!

I'm happy this building is getting built. Yay for density and nothing beige or brown.
But ick to that drive thru. I had completely forgotten about it until now.

Piers are set and the crane base has been installed.

It should not be too long until there is another tower crane downtown.

Yes. I saw that yesterday, while I drove by there. Can't wait for the crane to go up. This will be a very nice looking hotel, even though there has been some controversy about the sidewalk drive thru.

Great. Is that crane full height or will it get taller?

From both of these street level shots it does not appear tall enough, but it does not appear to be able to elevate itself (but I am no expert on cranes). It would need to clear at least 100-110' above The Ticket Bar building (to be the final height of the crane), and the cabin of the crane appears to be between 160-190' high; examining the tower sections.

The Maverick is ~130' tall and the Hyatt Regency is ~160' tall, since the crane would have to clear both of those, I think that it is at its final height.
