  1. I haven't seen anything either. Last I recall hearing was that it was dormant and they re-paved the block.
  2. 1111 Rusk: Texaco Building Renovation

    The garage may look a little bit better yet once the covering over the rail stop is removed and the ground floor buildouts are done, but I doubt anyone will ever find it attractive. Curious what business might land there behind the rail stop, it's not a terribly busy one, mostly transfers to the red line.
  3. Looking at Urb's last post, imagining something back on the Chronicle block along with this tower and then adding Skanska/Capitol tower in to the picture, you have a lot of density blending right into the Market Square neighborhood.
  4. Midtown Sears

    Perhaps "Katherine Blunt" is Nancy Sarnoff's code name for her little green helper.
  5. Curtain wall going on too...
  6. FWIW, the lot is open now. I think they are asking $15/day.
  7. You can pick these up for ~$15k in good shape!
  8. Flooding in Downtown from Hurricane Harvey

    For a 1/500 chance, most people mentally igore it or, just figure the mitigation will suck, but they will deal with it at that time. Here we are. It will be interesting to try and see if planning can come up with something that is worth the tradeoffs.
  9. 13 stories is a big mofo of a garage.
  10. 1111 Rusk: Texaco Building Renovation

    It's still in a big barrel/pot, so there's hope for it. Given the lack of funds spent to get this thing finished, I'd guess that it will end up as part of the roof deck landscaping eventually.
  11. One Shell Plaza, 910 Louisiana St.

    Doesn't Los Angeles (and perhaps others) more or less require companies to put signage on buildings? It probably comes and goes out of fashion, but I think it's kind of cool to see who's there making a big presence.
  12. One Shell Plaza, 910 Louisiana St.

    20 floors worth of 1 Shell sounds like a lot more space than they would currently have over at Green Street. Are they consolidating other Houston offices or are they moving operations from elsewhere? I think they have some corporate office presence in New Jersey. Is that moving?
  13. Nude Beach?

    Ha! To each his own, but naked people are not going to stop being funny. On a related note (and a slightly less random bump), scanning through Google Maps, I happened upon what was labeled as a "resort" in Porter. You know that there must be something a bit out of the ordinary to something surrounded by trailer parks and the prototypically "low income" Walmart that would attempt to invoke images of luxurious leisure. Emerald Lake Resort. Look it up, if you're in to that sort of thing...
  14. Frank's Backyard @ 413 Travis Street

    When scarcity becomes a positive attribute, that's when the big dollars start rolling in!
