  1. Awesome job! Does that mean I don't have to do it now???

  2. It's more of a food court between the renaisance hotel, GW 15 and one of the other bigger buildings. It's not that impressive. If it was AC, I could see it, maybe. I'm not thinking of my own use, I'm thinking of business people who would ride from midtown/montrose/galleria area to their job in greenway, walking across a freeway on a typical pedestrian bridge. I just can't see a guy in a suit (or even business casual) using one of those over a freeway. If it were enclosed and climate controlled, sure. Maybe I'm seeing it wrong, but I just don't see how cutting off most of the destina

  3. They will get what they deserve. Afton Oaks has no idea what will happen when 2929 Weslayen, Willowick Place, Buffalo Speedway, and Levy park opens up.

  6. Yes they are building a Tollway on 288. Before you hit the medical center the are building a ramp straight to the TMC. They are also building a interchange at the Beltway. More concrete!

  7. Complains of hyperbole, makes own hyperbole. No, people probably wouldn't travel from TSU to Greenway. They'd probably travel from TSU to the Galleria. They'd probably travel from Midtown to Greenway, or the Galleria. They'd probably travel from the Galleria (galleria area) to Greenway. They'd probably travel from anywhere to a stop near mandell to see the menil. They'd probably travel from anywhere to go to the westlayan movie theater. They'd probably commute to school at UH, or TCU. Personally, I'd travel from the east end transit center to midtown, mandell, galleria, or the theater near

  8. after watching, i feel comfortable / confident that greenstreet will be somewhat of a success. I agree if Midway did it from the beginning, it would have been even better. Did anyone else catch the areas on the graph in terms of - stabalizing market / rising market / peaking market / falling market / --- he mentioned Midtown as stabilizing - which to me means that in the past it wasnt an ideal place to invest, and now it looks "stable" with a steady stream of investment. I would take this to mean there could be a boom in this area in the future. with all of the mid-rise residentual, i can a

  9. To me the theory that makes the most sense is that it was just an onboard fire, perhaps starting with the tires. After the pilots turned west to head to the nearest airport, they ended up incapacitated by smoke and the plane just continued on its heading until it ran out of fuel over the ocean. Simple explanations are generally the best.

  10. Who made you the ridership person? Bellaire built a park and ride lot off Westpark. The density off Gulfton, Hillcroft and Post Oak is high. Why don't you ride the bus to the Hillcroft Transit Center and see how many people ride the buses. Do not mock unless you know the facts. BLAH BLAH BLAH.

  11. Speed related accidents are caused either by driving too fast for conditions, or too much speed differential between vehicles. The operating theory behind setting the speed limit in accordance with the 85th percentile is that the bulk of the driving public is not suicidal and can therefore pretty much figure out how fast to drive all on their own. Personally, I think there is a lot of value in having a minimum speed on highways as well as a maximum, in order to cut down on the differential.

  12. I doubt that the University Line would "screw over" "hundreds of thousands" of people over. Do neighborhoods that resisted freeways "screw over" thousands of potential commuters? Maybe. We're not here to discuss that. So you think that "we spent all this money, we should go for the rail anyway"? Congratulations, you've just done the sunk cost fallacy. It really is a shame since I went in with the generally-agreeable "We need a world class transit system on the east-west corridor, but the University Line is broken and needs some serious thinking." Rather then getting some creative thinking, m

  13. Good find. Thanks for posting. To clarify, hotels are not considered "residential". They are typically referred to as "hospitality." He actually never said they would be announcing a residential project. He said they believe good mixed use projects need three uses and they would would be making an announcement in the next 60 days about a third use for GreenStreet. He never specified what the third use would be. So, yes, one presumes it will be hospitality -- Hotel Allesandra.

  14. Slick Vik is right. My car was in the shop and METRO had the 82 Westheimer running every 10 minutes. I hoped on it and got off at Taft. I was there in 10 minutes. If I worked Downtown I would use it. I'm not poor to ride a bus. Afton Oaks will get what they do not want. When River Oaks District is done with two other high rises the traffic will be a parking lot. Then every one in a car will cut through Afton Oaks. They got their way with no rail. Just wait all the traffic will flow into their area cutting through! Oh and when the train comes! LOL! When that happens they will ask Cu

  16. That makes no sense. Today you've got three travel lanes in each direction plus an esplanade and sidewalks. Looks like a 120' right-of-way through the residential area. One lane each way plus rail is about a 48' section. Add 12 for sidewalks. Where did the other 60 feet go?
