  6. Updated site plan for Fairview District in Montrose: Old site plan here. From Swamplot: There appear to be 6 retail spots in the foot of the garage that will be ready for tenants before such time as the rest of the garage might hypothetically be repurposed (along with a slew of other spaces in the development, per Edge Realty’s leasing flier): Spots shown as available include the lot currently occupied by a house just south of the nexus of Genessee and Fairview.
  7. Additional rendering of Fairview District in Houston's Montrose: Leasing brochure (archive link) More renderings here and here.
  8. From Swamplot about the parking garage planned for Fairview District in Houston's Montrose. The latest of Gensler’s renderings of that midrise parking garage planned atop the recently evacuated location of nightclub and drag venue Meteor shows the structure rocking a swath of greenery in place of the decorative bicycles pictured across the facade in earlier drafts. More on Gensler's parking garage conversions in other designs of theirs:

  10. ^ Ragin' Cajun was in a tunnel. What does a subterranean tunnel restaurant open for limited hours of the day, limited days of the week, and for a limited amount of people have to do with a light rail line? Idk. If anything its great they closed, maybe in the future they'll consider opening elsewhere in a more visible location that isn't closed after 6:30 pm. Oxheart closed but not because of some nonsense: "oh how lamentable Houston, closing fine restaurants due to a lack of competence in public transport" your trying to spin here. The owner is revamping the entire place into a new concept. Samurai Noodle is, like your presence on this forum, irrelevant. Roma Pizza is closed on Sunday, yet is open Thursday-Saturdays until 3AM. Why you didn't acknowledge that I don't know. You know what else is closed on Sunday? Chick-Fil-A, didn't see you complain about the Chick-Fil-A in Pennzoil Place being closed all the way from your homely Chicago. Its not always about electric trains and how they have swindled an entire city out of millions by advocating false assumptions and promises of bringing thousands of commuters and development into town. Maybe the employee's/management need a break from long late hours, maybe they need Jesus.
  11. Samurai Noodle Closed Ragin' Cajun Closed Oxheart Closed Am I missing any other restaurants that have closed in downtown this year? How is Roma Pizza doing on the light rail line? Still closed on Sundays? Odd, I guess people don't eat pizza on Sundays.
  12. RT @realDonaldTrump: It's almost like the United States has no President - we are a rudderless ship heading for a major disaster. Good luck…

  13. Interesting. I used to live in those apartments (Western Ridge, at 3354 Rogerdale). When we first moved in we were excited to have a movie theatre right across the street. One week later, the Tinseltown closed. LOL! I don't know anything about what was at 3350 Rogerdale before, other than I remember Randall's did have some kind of facility. I applied for a job there in the mid 1990s. I do wonder why that empty lot to the south of Western Ridge on Rogerdale at the corner of Westpark has never been developed. I have looked at old aerial photos and once in the 1950s there was a house there. Since then, nothing.
  14. I-10 may need to be a minimum of 8 lanes (4 in each direction) between Katy and Columbus to fix that issue since you have 2 lanes of Highway 71 from Austin dumping onto 2 lanes of I-10. Since the issue only exists on Sundays and holiday weekends and isn't a daily problem, TxDOT may not justify it. Just thinking about it, 8 lanes of rural interstate would be a monster. Do any 8 lane rural interstates currently exist?
  15. I think we need more. Coffee shops should have different feels like bars. Honeymoon is our only great coffee shop.
  16. Which tower?
  17. He was going to but got redirected by the ads
  18. I would say this part of downtown in particular needs more, especially with three new apartment buildings.
  19. Spell check nabbed it... It's MotivA. An energy giant from Saudi/USA.
  20. Yesterday
  21. "Motive Center" sounds like a really prissy euphemism for the toilets. Or perhaps a bus/rail station.
  22. Good! "Motive Center?" and, out of curiousity, what the heck is "Motive"? (Scurries off to google)......
  23. It's good to see this space filling up with a coffee shop or otherwise. But I disagree that coffee shops are desperately needed downtown.
  24. The redevelopment looks quite nice, especially those metal windows. That said, tearing up one of the most intact and vibrant blocks of lower Westheimer to put in what essentially will be a strip center blows goats.
  25. Good news... Motive gets naming rights to One Allen Center by expanding their lease to over 204,000 square feet including a new roof deck.
  26. Downtown is dead. Light rail killed it. Some dude in Chicago told me so. These restaurants are FAKE NEWS. Sad!
  27. If you can post said list, that would be awesome. I live downtown and am well aware that there are tons and tons of spots, but when it comes time to decide where to eat, I default to my same old spots.
