POST Houston

Houston, called the “Bayou City” is cut through with verdant swaths of land made resistant to development by their propensity to flood. Its downtown sits where two of these bayous, the Buffalo and the White Oak, cross. At the northern end of downtown— across the Buffalo Bayou from the core of 1970s and 1980s office towers, the vibrant theater district, and major civic institutions—a 500,000-square-foot concrete warehouse and office building sits on the site of what was once Houston’s Grand Central Station.
