  1. @IronTiger the current intersection is absolute cancer. You current have a 4-way intersection which, because of the 45 degree angle of the Navigation bend and Jensen, ends up actually being an 8-signal intersection as the left turns aren't properly aligned, so they have their own sequence. Add in the stoplight on the Navigation to Navigation right turn, and you technically have a 9-sequence light for a four-way intersection. It's also important to note that the amount of traffic going from Runnels to Navigation or Jensen is usually 1-3 cars, per cycle, max. The traffic from that side is neglig

  3. Still seems odd to me whenever someone refers to the "old El Tiempo", when most right-thinking Montrosians knew it as La Jaliscience.

  4. for the size this intersection is currently, I imagine a 2 lane roundabout will fit. the amount of traffic I ever see in this intersection currently doesn't really warrant/need 2 lanes, but growth in the area will happen, and a 2 lane roundabout will make sense.

  5. I agree that it would be nice to see developers push the envelope a bit more. But the need for an iconic skyline to me is secondary to what's happening at street level. Living in NYC for 25 years, I felt like the impact of the city wasn't any individual building. Yes, there were iconic buildings, but most were built like those in Houston to maximize profit. It is their density and how they contribute to the street life that make NYC the big apple. For example, The World Trade Center towers were iconic, but everyone hated the plaza area around them. I vote for pedestrians over pediments.

  6. North side of The Travis at night. Better than the daytime view. It’s oddly fitting, though, that there are a couple of lights that are out-of-sync with the rest. Maddening — just like the unpainted parking garage. LOL!

  7. They were never going to follow Drewery Place with those. You don't build a Chevy and then turn around and build Ferraris. Hope for incremental improvement.

  8. Had my wife ask at Shake Shack because it looked like maybe a drive-thru was being added, but they said that they are only adding a walk-up window to that side. They aren't involved with the rest.

  9. Damn now we're turning into negative groupthink. SOMEBODY PRESS THE REVERSE BUTTON THIS IS GETTIGN OUT OF HAND. Lol, good thing this forum rarely if ever turns into a hivemind like most forums (looking at you reddit). Personally, I like the design of this tower, it has pretty good interaction with the ground floor through well designed retail openings, and the crown gives a pretty unique rooftop not seen much in Texas. Overall, while it isn't the Neil Esperson Building, it's still better than the vast majority of high rises in Texas going up and existing. I think it's a good looki

  10. The easement on the West side...perfectly solves the issue of linking Hermann/Third Ward/UH to Memorial Park/Galleria. Its almost too good. I'm assuming this map is correct as it came from the 2014 article about this:

  12. Right now, the start date is set for April 2021. I do not anticipate this being postponed. *Edit: Foundation to Grade Permit – April 2021 Structural Frame Permit – July 2021 Building Permit – September 2021 The building will have individual permits for each floor.

  15. If ever there was an intersection in Houston where a roundabout was warranted, it is here. Here combined with the Canal/Navigation intersection is more consistently frustrating than any other one-two combo I can think of.

  16. A family member of mine had a farm in far south Fort Bend Co in the late 90s; from the front porch of the house, you could see Transco on a very clear day...the light was almost always visible at night, roughly 30-32 miles away.

  27. The CCSC is now open. I wish they had put some windows on the North wall. It's just one giant "wall". Bor-ing. Homeless people? I need to look closer, I haven't seen any. Maybe you just saw me wandering around in my "work from home" outfit... loose fit sweats, baggy tee, "no haircut in nine months" look. 🙃

  30. Just to fill in a little additional information gleaned from the Downtown TIRZ meeting: It sounds like Phoenix has the building under contract, but has not yet closed on it (as of mid-August). They are working with consultants etc to try to come up with best mix of units/pricing. The initial plan as shown above was mostly micro and studio units and a mix of affordable and market rate. They are looking at increasing the number of 1 bedroom units and also possibly increasing the percentage of affordable units. They are aiming to minimize the amount of "ask"

  34. They originally said first quarter of this year. It may well happen, but I wouldn't put money on it. I don't put money on much though. I feel better about this than TMC3.

  35. This is what they are telling potential condo buyers. As someone who works with salespeople, they always over-promise. However, Caydon does not seem like the type of developer to wait for pre-sales to get dirt moving. I would put money on a 1st quarter groundbreaking.
