Originally posted by crockpotandgravel, May 3, 2019 in the thread for New Magnolia Brewing Co. | 1616 Bevis St | Shady Acres. From Houston Chronicle yesterday: Another brewery is moving into one of Houston's transitioning urban neighborhoods. Shady Acres will soon be the recipient of New Magnolia Brewery. The city recently approved a building permit to convert a 7,500-square-foot warehouse at 1616 Bevis St., just east of White Oak Bayou, into the brewery's home. The new spot will add to Houston's 14 craft breweries and 50 craft brewpubs, according to Houston Beer Guide. The original Magnolia Brewery was downtown at 715 Frankin. The building was the first commercial building in the city to receive the Houston Protected Landmark designation in 2006. It was built in 1893 and redesigned in 1911 for the Houston Ice and Brewing Co., which brewed the Magnolia and Southern Select beers. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/real-estate/article/New-Magnolia-Brewery-moving-into-Shady-Acres-13811761.php

  8. Been a few times and I liked it enough. I do agree that they dropped the ball on the garden though.
  9. vocal public is whoever goes, and votes at the meetings I suppose.
  10. As Gentrification Looms, New Research Shows What’s At Stake For Houston’s Third Ward
  11. Does the vocal public mean Houston at large or the vocal public that "represents" Third Ward? Their CBA list is quite extensive...
  12. hmm wonder how this is going to affect the variance request. Does the vocal public support this project more than it doesn't? Hoping this doesn't destroy/delay the plan, and we can get this project underway sooner than later.
  13. Third Ward community expresses concerns with The Ion project that's underway
  14. Really impressive if this starts so soon. RTP 2045 roadmap didn't have this starting until fiscal year 2035.
  15. Pushed to mid-2020 now. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/transportation/article/Weather-steel-delays-push-opening-Texas-288-14832673.php
  16. That sliver of Midtown (or Montrose or the Fourth Ward or whatever it’s called) is certainly a great place to live, very walkable and convenient to a lot but closed off enough that it doesn’t get much vehicular traffic. Was this part of the Fourth Ward Redevelopment Authority land?
  17. Eh, I'm not sure that a subway under Westheimer is terribly plausible, but those reasons are not very unusual. They build subway tunnels in cities a lot older than Houston where all sorts of stuff is underground. You do as much due diligence as you can and prepare to be surprised. As for the width of the street - it's true that the road bed is as narrow as 35', but the public right of way never gets that narrow. In fact, it looks like it's 60' at its narrowest. For comparison, it looks like the Seattle subway uses a pair of 18' tunnels.
  18. Yesterday
  19. Laying the rebar and cables to support the pool ( lower right)and putting up the supports for the 7th floor which tips out the podium.
  20. I;'m not sure there's enough room to run a train under Westheimer. The width inside the Loop is a little as 35 feet, which means it would be tough to fit the tunnels underneath without encroaching on someone's subsurface rights. There's also the issue that no one has a clue as to what's underground in much of Houston. Boring through old water or oil wells could cause some real issues.
  21. Light rail construction had started before mid-2001, as that was when I injured my knee crossing the construction to get to the other side of Main from Tuam. The development referred to was for property along the rail, which didn't really start for a number of years.
  22. Really wish we could have the Boring Company come in and build something down Westheimer.
  23. Anyone knows what the future of this lot is? The old Drew’s BBQ spot has been vacant for over a year and a half.
  24. It's quite beautiful. What did this building first house?
  25. I live a short walk from Axelrad so that's my usual spot. I went to Social Beer Garden once and the service was non-existent...
