  1. 2920 Lamar St.

    The lot in between Dallas and Lamar on Paige St had a full crew breaking down the structures on site yesterday. It used to be the Green Hill Recycling Management Center. Any word on what we should expect?
  2. East Village at 1201 St. Emanuel

    Where are the food truck going to fit in? With the trees, containers, and ferris wheel, there doesn't seem to be much room for food trucks.
  3. East Downtown Promenade

    Well the sign was created by the same artist that made the Beatles statues at 8th wonder. So maybe it was up to him?
  4. TIRZ 15

    Should the budget and plans for street and sidewalk development be changed with the release of TXDOT plans for highway reconstruction? It looks like TIRZ 15 has budgeted over 5 million over the next 5 years for construction on St. Emanuel (which will ultimately become a feeder road) and other streets that will be affected by the contruction. I am not pretending to be a city planner or engineer, I just looked at the budget and it was signed in early of 2016. Shouldn't the plans be revised? Shouldn't the Eado Management District be involved making these changes?
  5. East Village at 1201 St. Emanuel

    Crews have been out in full force the last week working on Phase 2 of this project. Didn't get a chance to take a picture as I was driving by.
  6. East Village at 1201 St. Emanuel

    Since the news of the highway reconstruction, I didn't think anyone would invest on the west side of St. Emanuel. Good for the area.
  7. East Village at 1201 St. Emanuel

    Looks like the bar will be facing Hutchins. Really interested to see how rodeo goat and the truck yard plan on sharing space. I thought the interior of the building would be all Rodeo Goat, but based on the picture, that's not the case.
  8. Polk Street Commerce

    They started working on the mural. Better then the blank wall, but seems odd they wouldn't want to advertise with all the cars that use Polk.
  9. Pitch 25 at 904 Hutchins

    https://www.crowdfundinsider.com/2017/12/126417-pitch-25-surpasses-minimum-gooaalll-houston-soccer-bar-restaurant-nextseed/ "To date, the minimum goal has been surpassed with over $419,300 raised since November… with next $550,000 goal in sight. Capital raised will be allocated to the construction and build-out of the 904 Hutchins Street space while additional funds will be allocated to marketing and working capital required for operations."
  10. 2112 Pease Street.... New Bar?

    Looks like there is a new bar or restaurant opening up next to Café TH. Got the info off a post on Nextdoor, so credit goes to someone else for finding it.
  11. East Village at 1201 St. Emanuel

    Phase I has been moving at a snails pace since Harvey. Specifically, Rodeo Goat and the Truck yard. I don't understand how portions of phase II like Sorek could have plans to be open by March.
  12. St.Arnolds Expansion

    Spoke with one of the brewers last week, and he said that this project is way ahead of schedule because of the recent dry weather.
  13. Polk Street Commerce

    This sign is now gone and they will be painting a mural here. Seems like the original sign was for marketing purposes until they were ready to move in. The clinic will be opening up January 2nd.
  14. Polk Street Commerce

    Had dinner at Nancy's Hustle last night. Really good food. This area was really lacking a restaurant like this. It was a little pricey (compared to everything else in the area) but worth it.
  15. New mixed use building at Polk & Dowling in East Downtown?

    Someone on Nextdoor spoke with Liz Jacobs of Lovett Commercial and they were told that the Sprouts and CVS deal fell through. Looks like this side of town will continue to be a food desert.
