Hines podium rises in Historic District that is no longer hip, tasty, funky, and savvy


The first few layers of the 32-story Hines Market Square Tower on corner of Preston and Travis

Construction of the 32-story Hines Market Square Tower 
is currently in what Ziegler Cooper informs us is the "garage podium" stage (first 8 stories). Ground-level retail and pocket park are also in the plan.

The new emerging luxury tower faces the current sanitized version of the Houston Is Inspired (no longer hip hip, tasty, and funky) Mural

Once we were hip, tasty, funky, and savvy ... 

Where has all that gone? 

At least, the future high-end Hines-project residents on the edge of Market Square will get to partake of the 5-star hotel feel 
... or so the promo promises.
