These look decent as twins, but the double parking garage is a abomination of urbanity.

Unfortunately. At the very least, the parking garage should be wrapped with a matching façade. In addition have street level retail.

Ugh, attack of the Skyhouse parking deck!
Atlanta's first Skyhouse had a similar turd of a deck:

People complained so much that the second Skyhouse has a *slightly* better deck. At least it's brick and has some good retail.





I don't know if it's too late for Houston, but you should complain and see if Novare will build a better deck.

And wouldn't you know it, oil prices are headed back up. The Steelworkers need to go on strike more often.

SkyHouse Main will be at 1725 Main Street, between Pease and Leeland streets, directly south of its twin, SkyHouse Houston.

The new 24-story tower will have 336 units, as well as 7,200 square feet of street-level retail space. Apartment features include floor-to-ceiling glass, 9-foot-plus ceiling heights and high-end amenities such as granite countertops, wood floors, large balconies and high-speed Internet.

Community amenities include the top-floor SkyHouse, which features a clubroom, fitness center, pool and grilling area. SkyHouse Main is expected to deliver in early 2016.

Today's groaner was initially found by Swamplot, but later made it to the pages of the Chronic. Note the following picture of the lower floors of Skyhouse; according to the developer, there are similar exposures on the Skyhouse Main...

I am no real estate expert, but I suspect the view will cause a "big drop" in their sales.
