Creating A Randall Davis Future with The Arabella
Houston has always been a city of opportunity, growth, and upward mobility. We have state of the art facilities for research, education, and art installations. We are consistently on lists of our nation’s fastest growing or most populous cities and we are also nearly recession proof. Our growing Uptown district features dozens of high end luxury stores and world-class restaurants (and soon The Arabella, too). So why doesn’t everyone else regard us as the world class city that we clearly are? The answer: our mindset.
Transforming Houston into a Globally Recognized Destination
Cities like Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and more all have the mindset that you have to have a balance of history and the future. Though Houston was established in 1837, we have consistently changed and rebuilt throughout the decades. While we have a few buildings still standing from the 19th century, it is our lack of focus on the future that Randall Davis seeks to change with developments like the Arabella, the Astoria, and the very soon to be completed high rise in the heart of Houston’s central business district known as Marlowe.
Randall Davis has always been at the forefront of pushing Houston into a more modern and design oriented perspective. Downtown Houston does feature a number of notable buildings that shape its skyline. Though there are some impressive accomplishments among them (such as the 14th tallest building in the the US – the JPMorgan Chase Tower), many of our skyscrapers are doing nothing to further the city’s progression into the future. Randall has always been a leading voice in the shaping of architectural trends and designs. It is no surprise that he is still trying to elevate Houston’s architectural perspective to the level of Miami, NYC, and beyond.
In cities like Vancouver or New York City, you see incredibly ambitious and beautiful buildings everywhere and under construction. The Arabella is Randall Davis’ ode to what Houston could become with the help of those living here and those who wish to relocate to a place that rivals New York City in culture, opportunity, and world-class restaurants. Houston has all of the hallmarks of a destination city; now, we just need to look the part!
