    After 56 seasons, they did it. THE ASTROS ARE WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS!!!!!! Now, they can redesign the Crawford St wall once more to include a place of honor for the World Series banner.

    since I was on a self imposed world series watch ban, I snapped this last night around the 7th inning.

    Which is exactly correct. Cars can move. Car storage is exactly the kind of thing that should be put in flood-prone areas (if you're going to put anything there at all), rather than an actual use like housing or retail.

    It was the year of the two Harveys. We had ours, L.A. had theirs. Ours awakened more sympathy.

    Better leave space for some more, this team has the chops to make a run for a few years! So happy for the team and the city, we've been waiting a loooong time for this!

    So did this one lose 2 floors and 20+ feet? So glad to see it coming to fruition. This is what Midtown needs along the rail corridor. I can envision a "wilshire" like stretch of high rises connecting downtown and Hermann Park some day.

    Well, no, it would increase its capacity substantially. It would make it harder for people in cars to speed down Washington to get Downtown, but that seems like a good thing to me. You people have I-10, Memorial, AND Allen Parkway. You're fine.

    Oh hell no. That's one of the stupidest ideas ever. It would ruin Washington as a route to downtown from the West.

    Crazy Crazy Crazy - but in a fun, non-descructive way which was very refreshing - no burning trash cans, burning cars, etc (at least none that I saw !!) EDIT: I just read there were 4 arrests, still not too bad

    And if Camden indeed breaks ground soon, he will Tilman will already have a start on more energy over there.

    I could see HEB being in a mixed-use project on the south side of Downtown, capturing both Downtown/Midtown, and WF on the north side more towards Market Square since that is more their clientele. With the Astros winning the World Series and Crane's plan to put a park next to MMP, I am very excited for the next residential boom in downtown and all that will come with it.

    Just broker speculation but thought I would share: Grocery stores will soon have little choice but to breach the downtown market, which has a large-enough mass of residents to support a grocery store, Gaines said. He's skeptical of Randall's, Kroger or Walmart taking the risk of building an urban, multistory grocery store in downtown Houston. "I think H-E-B definitely will," Gaines said. "Whole Foods will." https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2017/11/01/broker-downtown-houston-has-enough-residents-to.html

    Yeah, I had never heard anything about extending the purple or green lines.

    I didn't take photos, but on Polk from ADLA to St Emanuel they have removed a westbound traffic lane, and are marking for a painted bike lane. Now they need to provide a way to get from Lamar bike lane to this new bike lane.

    Does anyone know the history of this place? Is there like a building built on top of another building? Looks like the brick work changes on this place going up and doesn't match the rest.

    Agreed...... as soon as the owners flatten the current shell, the empty lot that remains would make a great art gallery enclosed in a lovely new building.

    Or a caricature of Texas. I have never been to this place. But from the look of it it strikes me as a "urban, up-market, honky tonk". I may be wrong be that's what I see in the renderings. I am sure it will be a fun place, don't get me wrong. But if this place is what I think it is, is that really a "true taste of" what Texas is?
