  1. Kolache Shoppe. Just died and thanked God personally for being so good to me.
  2. Midtown Sears

    The Baptist church? I love the collection of churches in the Montrose / Museum District Corridor. My church (Annunciation Greek Orthodox) is doubling its size.
  3. The Allen: Allen Pkwy/Gillette Mixed Use 6 acres

    This is still an extremely desirable property. They will just need to be smart on how they develop this property.
  4. Lack of Restaurant Diversity In the Heights

    Kukuri Japanese Restaurant opened on Washington Ave in Old Sixth Ward. link: https://www.google.com/amp/s/houston.eater.com/platform/amp/2017/8/11/16130166/houston-kukuri-japanese-restaurant-open-washington-avenue
  5. 6-story school downtown

    wow, what a beautiful and irreplaceable building. brings up the rage...
  6. 1300 Capitol Street---New HSPVA campus

    I find it baffling that you think an area as dense (or soon to be dense) doesn't deserve a high school. They should build more public schools downtown.
  7. Melrose Building to be Redeveloped into a Le Meridien

    Thanks urbanize for posting my pic!
  8. 1114 Texas Street to Become Hyatt Place Hotel

    Remember, we are shooting for the highest level of conference hosting. This requires a hotel / bed minimum. We were drastically short compared to other cities we try to compete with. All these rooms help. We also have growth in residents and office, which also increase the demand.
  9. 1114 Texas Street to Become Hyatt Place Hotel

    **** Can we move this post to the Downtown Forum **** This is no different than the other hotel renovations we have followed there (Downtown Forum) honestly sounds like construction logistics. I am sure the developers of this project would have worked out the functionality of the final product by now. I am optimistic that we will see construction activity this year.
  10. 40-story High-Rise for Block 98, Behind Hess Tower

    don't forget the one North of Minute Maid... that one on half the block. I believe same developer as Catalyst... Anyway, I agree - If we get this and Camden (always considered the two towers will come in phases), then there is really just a few projects we don't see movement on. I always hoped the activity was a kick start to constant residential development downtown. If downtown starts to fill up with people... imagine what kind of height we can see...
  11. ^^ That sounds positive. I hope they can sign someone so we can see it go up.
  12. Melrose Building to be Redeveloped into a Le Meridien

    I will try. Looks like they are still doing a ton of work on the other side. Not sure if they were just testing... If anyone is around and does see the lights on. Snap a pic... preferably not when you're driving.
  13. Melrose Building to be Redeveloped into a Le Meridien

    For anyone interested. The San Jacinto side was lit up with LED lights across the turqoise. It made for an extremely modern and sleek look. I am not sure if they were just testing, but it looked AWESOME. For those of you who doubted this project, see it with the lighting. If you STILL don't like it, there is nothing else left to change your mind. I think alot of people will like it / appreciate it when they see it completed, and the lighting effect ON.
  14. I think of it like this. I want to live in a specific neighborhood... In this neighborhood, 16% of the homes are available for sale. I also could build new. If there are enough people out there, some will decide to buy existing while others buy new. Since Skanska's tower is U/C, this means there is some "spec homes" coming online... However, it just takes one domino to fall for a builder to take the plunge.
