According to the zoning commission packet, a third tower will be joining the other two towers located off I30 on the West side of town. It will sit on the currently empty lot along Guilford Rd. The tower will be 11 floors and 166 feet tall. A 5 detached story garage will be included. The top floor will contain a residence.

#107669 Gov owned land downtown

Posted by Austin55 on 06 December 2017 - 08:41 PM

A frequent topic on here is trying to shrink the government influence in downtown in order to get more private investment and grow the tax base. 

Here is a map to help visualize some of what governments control, sorted by level. Churches are also included since they are predominant landowners and don't pay property taxes.  Let me know if you notice any incorrect or missing areas.

I did not include TRWD ownership as there is a lot of it, but basically, anything along the river is them. Streets are not included either.

#107668 Residence Inn at "Houston and 8th"

Posted by Austin55 on 06 December 2017 - 08:26 PM

It is still owned by Mland lodging, the same folks who converted Park Place to the Fairmount. I think this is still in the works, just probably getting their financial ducks in line or something.

The old semi trailer parking at NE corner of S. Main & Vickery has been cleared and has a sign up. Not sure what it will be though....

Better rendering of this one. The land has been cleared in recent months. Not sure when construction is due to start, but should be soon.

#107615 Future project near Pier 1 building?

Posted by Austin55 on 03 December 2017 - 07:59 PM

Coming along. I'm liking this a lot. Feels as if it is connecting Pier 1 to downtown, rather than it just being a tower in a park.
