  1. We just went for lunch. $2 margaritas on Tuesdays. Food was great!
  2. 2100 Airline Dr

    Well, it's Sunset Heights. So, we might as well jump on the bandwagon! I always thought of the North Side as a little closer to Jeff Davis High School, or whatever they are calling it now.
  3. Canino Produce Co. Farmers Market @ 2520 Airline Dr

    I just noticed that NewQuest has the old trailer park on Airline (1 block North of Canino's) up for redevelopment too. With the redevelopment of the market and if someone were to do something here, that would really improve that part of the Heights. Almost 5 acres. $6 million. https://www.newquest.com/pdfs/2100_Airline_Dr.pdf

    Slab has been poured.....progress on its way.
  5. Grocers Supply Co. - 3131 Holcombe Blvd

    My company delivers to the warehouse in Coppell, so I know it's not a figment of my imagination. When Grocer's Supply was purchased 3 years ago, we were told at that time that Dallas and Houston operations would be consolidated to yes, somewhere south of Dallas. Now, we have not yet been notified of switches in delivery locations. Will let you know when we hear anything.
  6. Grocers Supply Co. - 3131 Holcombe Blvd

    The Levit family sold to C & S Wholesale 3 years ago. Their first warehouse that was sold, was the cold storage off Studemont and I-10. I had heard that all warehouse operations will eventually be moved somewhere South of Dallas. I know that C & S also operates a warehouse in Coppell, Texas - NW of Dallas. http://www.chron.com/business/article/Major-distributor-to-acquire-Houston-s-Grocers-5866977.php
  7. Montalbano Tire & Auto shutting down 1302 Houston Ave

    If this is true - WOW! I wonder if they will move everything to their N. Shepherd location? I'm sure property taxes are unreal on the Houston Ave. property.
  8. 5802 N Main St

    And, you can pick up the vacant lot adjacent too....It's always been commercial... http://www.har.com/1112-24-kern-st/sale_20902674
  9. Crossroads at Cavalcade

    On another note, New Quest seems to have picked up the property behind this as well....they are now working on Five Points AND Five Points East. http://www.newquest.com/pdfs/5307_N_Main_St.pdf http://www.newquest.com/pdfs/5_Points_East.pdf
  10. Crossroads at Cavalcade

    New development at "Five Corners". Across the street from Five Points being marketed by New Quest. http://houston.culturemap.com/news/real-estate/10-20-17-crossroads-at-cavalcade-heights-retail-center-stream-realty-partners/
  11. 1300 Capitol Street---New HSPVA campus

    I'm not sure how HSPVA works today, but when I was in school, HSPVA pulled students from all over the district. You had to audition in your desired discipline in order to be accepted to the school. A student is not "zoned" to HSPVA according to their residence. I would think, that once complete, maybe, maybe 2-3% of the students that attend the school will actually live downtown.
  12. 1300 Capitol Street---New HSPVA campus

    I still find it baffling that HISD spent tax payer money on an entire downtown block for HSPVA. They could have purchased a block on the near East side for a fraction of the cost and still had great accessibility via the train to downtown.
  13. 1848 Airline Dr

    I do wish they would have used a correct street number on the street sign in the mural. Where Airline and North Main meet, it's the 4700 block.
