    • Sorry for the bad picture - they are moving dirt around...   Untitled by Houston Midtown, on Flickr    
    • I'm glad we've got Understory to fall back on.    According to their web site, they'll be back open during normal hours tomorrow. 
    • The med school will have a real grand entrance from MLK Blvd!    
    • For those unfamiliar with H-GAC, it "is the regional organization through which local governments consider issues and cooperate in solving area wide problems."  It covers thirteen counties.  It is the home of the Transportation Policy Council; one of its programs for the last 25 years is Commute Solutions; another is the mobility studies BeerNut linked to and discussed above.   So one more time:  Most (if not all) major US metro areas have more than one transit agency.  Sometimes they even overlap (as BART does with Muni / AC Transit / VTA / Caltrain / the ferries / etc., etc.), or CTA and Metra in Chicagoland, MTA, PATH, et al in NYC, etc., etc.   And we already have a regional authority to coordinate transit policy, so blowing up Metro serves no purpose whatsoever.  
    • Email in full.... ~~~~~~~~~~   Dear Future Client,   We are now approaching 120 interested clients on our Preferred Wait List. The current plan in place is to have three or four private showings starting in late October, early November, when the Sales Center is scheduled for completion. Clients will be invited to these private parties in the order in which they registered to give ALL a fair opportunity to purchase one of our 50 new homes. Terms are likely to be 10% of Purchase Price paid at contract execution with another 10% due one year after construction commencement. We are still working diligently on completing the floor plans; however, a City meeting effecting the shape and the positioning of the building is still in the works. Once the final determination is made, we will complete the floor plans and turn our attention to the exterior elements. Right now, the exterior design of the structure is about 75% finished. I am MUCH MORE than pleased with our architectural concept and am confident you will have the same viewpoint. In my last update letter, I noted that the search for a name that fits our New York inspired condominium was still a mystery in progress. Happy to inform you that your new home will be called…………. The PARAMOUNT. For me, the name brings to mind superior or above all others, timeless design, great importance, and compelling value. For you, I trust it means a new home with unparalleled, uncompromising features and standards... which is always my objective. More exciting details to come, please stand by. Sincerely,Randall Davis
