  1. You mean, like it is for drivers now? And it’s not like the Lamar bike lane doesn’t have to deal with Downtown cross streets either. The roadway lanes on Main are barely being used for vehicular traffic. With all the multifamily developments going up along the corridor, repurposing Main as a pedestrian/bike route might make more sense and better serve the area than what’s currently there.
  2. I’ve always thought the entire stretch of Main, from Buffalo Bayou to Wheeler, should be a pedestrian thoroughfare. As ongoing development has shown, there’s a lot of potential along this corridor. Linking all of this together, from the bars of 300 block all the way to Mid Main and the upcoming Innovation District could further stimulate this area, especially with the multifamily developments occurring in South Downtown & Midtown. And furthermore, while there’s an East-West bike lane on Lamar, there’s an absence of a North-South bike lane through Downtown Houston. Option A could be the best way to fulfill that need.
  3. Midtown Streetscape Improvements

    This. I really want this. I’ve always thought the entire stretch of Main, from Buffalo Bayou to Wheeler, should be a pedestrian thoroughfare. As ongoing development has shown, there’s a lot of potential along this corridor. Linking all of this together, from the bars of 300 block all the way to Mid Main and the upcoming Innovation District could further stimulate this area, especially with the multifamily developments occurring in South Downtown & Midtown. And furthermore, while there’s an East-West bike lane on Lamar, there’s an absence of a North-South bike lane through Downtown Houston. Option A could be the best way to fulfill that need.
  4. Anyone know what’s up? On another note, revisiting this thread a decade later, Downtown is definitely not dead. From 300 block/Market Square to Disco Green, we’ve come a long way.
  5. Minute Maid Park Renovations

    Astros working on a lease extension at Minute Maid Park.
  6. East Downtown Promenade

    The sign went in directly behind 8th Wonder by Polk St, so I think 8th Wonder might have something to do with the move (considering they have the Beatles statues already) https://www.click2houston.com/community/we-love-houston-sign-moving-to-new-home-1?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=snd&utm_content=kprc2
  7. New Park for the Southern Area of Downtown

    Two blocks from Root Memorial Square. Wasn’t anticpating that site but could be beneficial to residents at Block 334, Both Skyhouses, Houston House, and other places nearby.
  8. Based on that wording, my guess is Theater District Master Plan. That seemed to be next on the Houston First agenda.
  9. New Austin MLS soccer stadium?

    No suprise. Precourt choses to pursue new MLS soccer stadium at McKalla Place site. With this city-owned site not being parkland, it may get necessary backing from Austin city council. http://mls2atx.com/statement-from-precourt-sports-ventures-mckalla/ Note: Ann Kitchen was the council member who fought to keep the soccer stadium out of Butler Shores.

    Simon’s renovating Katy Mills. Renders to be unveiled today. http://abc13.com/3188272/ http://abc13.com/video/embed/?pid=3188335
  12. Awww man, you mean the W Hotel won’t be 102 stories tall with a spire on top? Disappointed
  13. Future Of The Astrodome

    On the day a Dome renovation plan was agreed to, the Toronto Maple Leafs took the ice at Mattamy Athletic Centre, formerly known as Maple Leaf Gardens. A $60M renovation that included a supermarket was partially funded by the Canadian government. You up don’t tear down history. You preserve it.
