  1. I would say this part of downtown in particular needs more, especially with three new apartment buildings.
  2. The city requires between 1.25 and 2 spaces per apartment. http://www.houstontx.gov/planning/DevelopRegs/docs_pdfs/parking_req.pdf This project will have plenty of parking.
  3. Bueno. Coffee shops desperately needed downtown.
  4. Straw men for everyone!
  5. The shopping center is a city Historic Landmark, meaning the owner has to submit plans to the historic commission, but their decision is only binding for 90 days.
  6. Eh, to be fair, it's the planning department that's responsible for that nice new Westheimer redesign. That being said, setback and parking requirements haven't gone away and definitely contribute to this nasty disappointment.
  7. Ugh, I wonder what the motivation was.
  8. Woo! Lovett is kinda the best.
  9. Wow. I had no idea I was homeless.
  10. Regardless of their concept, Georgia's execution was poor. They could never decide whether they wanted to be a market or a deli, so they were unsuccessful at both. Obviously it *is* possible to successful at both, but Georgia's was not.
  11. I couldn't give two craps about a supertall. True infill like this building is exactly what Houston needs.
  12. Yeah, replacing Numbers with anything else seems pretty heretical.
  13. These things are taking forever.
  14. There are a bunch of old homes on Westheimer that were, for whatever reason, not included in the Avondale historic districts. Now, this particular house has been pretty substantially altered over the years, but I still wish this at least had to go up for review by the HAHC. Of course, they approved that parking garage downtown...
  15. On an unrelated note, I really don't like that I'm apparently now a "freeway interchange."
