  2. This is the best I could manage: They've been working for a few days, and it looks like they're putting down sand, and covering it in some black... stuff. They look like panels of some kind. They're thin, black, and have a lot of holes through them. Almost looks like they're doing some kind of temporary parking lot or something.

  4. Fantastic. Aside from the newer stuff -- 601 Main, the pipe wrench, and 1000 Main -- it's pretty cool to consider the renovations in that pic over the last 10 or so years. From l-r, Post Dispatch Building (Magnolia Hotel), Texaco, Texas State Hotel, St. Germain, Commerce Tower, JW Marriott, Great Jones Building. Lost the medical tower on Hines site, Montague Hotel, West Building, Macy's, San Jacinto Hotel. Pretty good example of rehabbing works and replacing the obsolete with something as good or better.

  7. The demolition company is literally sorting out all the different types of materials at this moment. I was out there for an hour, and I only saw them collecting/ hauling off the major pieces of steel beam today. I also got to talk to one of the foremen. Most of the debris is being recycled. He also said they do not have any dates as to when the garage is coming down. They are going to keep it up for as long as possible. Steel beams being collected and chopped up. Those "jaws" on that excavator can chop those steel beams up at a rate of about 2-3 seconds each cut.

  12. Re: elevated rail & noise... I rode the JR trains all over Japan 6 weeks ago. In the major cities, there are arterial stations away from the core (think Woodlands, or 610/290 vs. downtown). The trains don't go 200 mph between them... since there isn't room to speed up and speed down. The lower speeds also allow tighter turns in urban environments and create less noise. The Japanese are fanatical about noise, and have specific standards for how much noise can reach a structure. In urban areas, there are sound walls, trench & cover, and other barriers that encapsulate the line. These trains don't create anything like the noise of a freight train. No banging, no horns, no signal, no 2 mph squeeky wheel nonsense. See pg 7. http://www.mlit.go.jp/english/2006/h_railway_bureau/Laws_concerning/14.pdf

  13. The Houston NM at 224,000 sf is currently the second largest in the chain. Only San Francisco is larger, at 252,000 sf. Dallas Northpark is no. 3, at 218,000 sf. Atlanta #4 at 206,000. http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=118113&p=irol-storelocations

  14. If the yellow highlighting means anything, both the demolitions and street abandonment are pretty clearly related to the planned parking garage. Regardless of the highlighting on the map, it is very clear neither the demolitions nor the street abandonment have anything to do with the Nau Center.

  21. Have you ever seen how many people cross Post Oak to get from the Galleria to Dillard's on any given weekend? From a business perspective, Dillard's is absolutely not out of place.

  24. Screw Afton Oaks. They are building these ugly track mansions, and then they think they live in River Oaks. We need the University Rail line to stop at Shepard. Then build a tollway right down Richmond through their area to connect to the Westpark Tollway. And screw Culberson!
