Metro News: New Block now on(the)line, but where?
The Block 334 Apartment Complex Visually
Quite eye-pleasing to the passer-by, but the property's website is less revealing. It features a Metro train traversing the watery stretch at Main Street Square heading to UH-Downtown, rather than a picture of the move-in-ready mid-rise apartment development in April 2016. The northbound train passes the un-demolished Foley's/Macy's Building. Nice archival footage (click here, wait, and watch), but the connection to Block 334 is somewhat elusive. The video obviously predates even the Block 334 groundbreaking early in 2014 as the Macy's imploded into a dusk cloud in 2013 (see it go down here). The new urban living destination's street address is semi-secret, too.
Secret revealed: It's 1515 Main St Houston, TX 77002 (Main at Leeland, just North of the first SkyHouse; -- the one with curbside pizza expression as a special Main Street Corridor amenity)
