  1. Latest overview: https://www.downtownhouston.org/site_media/uploads/attachments/2017-10-12/171011_Development_Map__Renders_11X17.pdf Another interesting click, if you haven't browsed through this Development Map just yet...: https://umap.openstreetmap.fr/en/map/houston-developments_57981#13/29.7541/-95.3417
  2. HMNS - Wiess Energy Hall 3.0

    Very neat preview, if you haven't already caught this:
  3. Grand Texas Theme Park - New Caney

    FWIW, The revised website for Grand Texas is up, but with little additional detail: http://grandtx.com/ Also, the mascot for Big Rivers Water Park and Gator Bayou Adventure Park has been revealed:
  4. Skyhawk Videos

    A slew of aerials from a channel I've followed for awhile: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjJDag4ruCz0_usBKMVTFpg/videos Published on Jul 28, 2017 Houston ISD Delmar Fieldhouse the $35.2 million, 5,000-seat facility will host basketball and volleyball games and tournaments, as well as graduation ceremonies and other special events. The maple court floor is removable and expandable, suiting both the 84 feet required for high school games and the 94 feet Published on Jul 22, 2017 Houston park that for decades was the only one in the city that allowed black residents was rededicated Saturday after undergoing a $34 million restoration.
  5. HMNS - Wiess Energy Hall 3.0

    Yep... I want to go to there:
  6. HMNS - Wiess Energy Hall 3.0

    This whole document here is an interesting look-through, if you're into museums and themed entertainment as I am: http://www.teaconnect.org/images/files/TEA_160_611852_160525.pdf (In particular, see pages 72-73 for Houston Museum of Natural Science standing, as of the end of 2015.)
  7. File this under 'Interior Buildouts,' I suppose... Some great overviews of the forthcoming Wiess Energy Hall at HMNS can be found over on Vimeo. Latest, here: (HMNS' page, with other updates: https://vimeo.com/user39050446 )
  8. I'd love to see a SkySpire (by US Thrill Rides) get located somewhere appropriately downtown... http://www.usthrillrides.com/products/skyspire/ ...Maybe where the Nau Center was supposed to go, and just include Tourism exhibit areas at the base? (New Orleans may apparently get one on the waterfront: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=216127 )
  9. Back on the subject, more correctly: The menus for Biggio's, Walker Street, and High Dive are all up on the hotel's website - see here, and the links are over on the right...: https://www.marriott.com/hotels/hotel-information/restaurant/houmq-marriott-marquis-houston/ And, eeerrrf.... Biggio's and Walker Street better get rid of that possessive form of 'Nacho' on their menus... Bergh...
  10. Per the restaurant's Facebook page, Grotto Downtown will open January 3... : https://www.facebook.com/GrottoDowntown/?fref=ts ...aaaand just realized I should've posted this on the Convention Center thread, instead... Don't see how I can delete this one. Oh, well...
  11. The sculptural components for the "Wings Over Water" fountain appear to be getting installed today, there on Avenida Houston: https://app.oxblue.com/open/HoustonFirst/GeorgeRBrownConventionCenter
  12. Found this good Interior Finishes-related gallery off of the Rod Ryan Show website, when I did a general 'Photos' search of Marriott Marquis Houston in Facebook: http://thebuzz.iheart.com/photos/the-rod-ryan-show/new-marriott-being-built-down-town-462762/ Clearly, the elevators are/will be a highlight... (Don't listen to the show, so was surprised a radio crew did a comprehensive tour of a project under construction. Looks like they also went to the new Arts Center in Sugarland, as well...)
  13. Hermann Park Centennial Gardens getting a Makeover

    I'm planning on attending, and will try to post a substantive update ASAP, after.
  14. GreenStreet Redevelopment + 21-Story Hotel Alessandra

    I suspect the black-colored coating is a waterproof sealant onto which concrete pavers will be set. You can tell a little bit by the raised door thresholds as well, leading out to this area... ...they should eventually be flush w/ whatever final finish is applied. Unsure how the rest of the pool will pan out, but bet there's a bunch more to come on this deck...
