  3. S3mh, The Historic Districts have helped increase my houses value to the point where I have so much equity that I can get a construction loan, and not having to work through the approval committee makes it that much sweeter. Just because you googled something and talked about it with your friends who also googled something doesn't make you knowledgeable. My next door neighbhor who grew up in the heights, has told me some interesting stuff about the neighborhood he heard from his parents who were some original residents of The Heights. What does that have to do with an overbearing Historic D

  4. That's ok. I lost my Mexican card when I voted for Romney. Just because you're a minority, your vote for a political party is not predetermined. Anyone that thinks and does that, imho, is an idiot.

  7. I love it. Build a Texas Cyclone on it and we practically have AstroWorld back too. What a great way to relish, enjoy and appreciate an exciting part of Houston's history. The 'Astro' era could have its own outdoor/indoor shrine and be a beautiful gateway to Reliant, the Houston Texans and the Rodeo. Of course, I realize that this doesn't scream corporate functionality and I don't see a clear path to unbridled profits at this time (which seems to be the only thing most shortsighted people at HAIF only care about) but it's a great idea just the same. Good luck with this one. As someone who jus

  8. love the design... for some reason we don't see a lot of the more modern designs you see elsewhere like Fortune noted. quick question - is parking going to be entirely underground? i don't see much in this rendering. also agree w bluecar... although a highrise is always nice, it would have stuck out like a sore thumb.

  10. This company is not in the business of helping people, saving the planet or promoting growth, other than the growth of their company. Leave those things to city planners, non-profits or philanthropists. The city has invested something in the Near North with the Metro line. That, in theory, will attract development. Putting this place adjacent to The Woodlands, since this is an imitation of that city, makes sense. It will attract a predictable demographic instead of gambling on attracting some vague gaggle of oddball pioneers. Anyway, I know you know all of this. I agree that any hinting of mas
