Very nice pictures. I noticed that the houses in your photos all have a garage on the ground floor. It's that a common thing in Texas?

Yes. Most people still drive to work and use the garage for storage of bikes, cars, and lots of other stuff, so there is still a need for two car garages.

Usually there is a bedroom on the ground floor behind the garage that can double up as a guest apartment, living, dining, and kitchen on the second floor, master bedroom and maybe one or two more on the third, and a rooftop deck on top (in many cases).

Doesn't look very urban to be honest. It's still nice though.

Phoenix Tower. 59 at Buffalo Speedway. They have a deck on the 9th floor (i think) with a garden and a putting green.

Thanks for posting. The streets looks a bit empty : where are the people?

It's supposed to be for building tenants/visitors only. But if you just walk in and act like you are going to a meeting there nobody will bother you. There is no free parking though.

This Houston thread is unique in that in captures the true sprawling flavor of the city
