  1. Daylight Saving Time allowed enough light for me to see all of the dirt that they've piled up on the south side of the tunnels. It's a lot more than shown here. And they're using a fleet of dump trucks to get the job done.

  4. More land has been acquired- 3/4 of the block will be redeveloped into two buildings. Subdivision plats have been filed by The Interfield Group. Same developer behind The Interpose.

  5. One thing about this project is how a lot of this work benefits Midtown more than any other area. While other areas are going to see properties taken for new ROW, Midtown will actually see infrastructure removed for their benefit. In addition to the obvious removal of the Pierce Elevated, they're removing the entrance and exit ramps to 288 from Chenevert and Jackson. Initially, those ramps were going to be converted into ramps for the toll lanes on 288. 40 years ago when the area was mostly black, putting those ramps there was a part of "progress". Now that the demographics have changed drasti

  8. Sooo..... time for eminent domain? Honestly a possibly rare win-win scenario? Just seems bananas to me to spend $10 mil for 30 years of a lease when the land can't be more than that.

  16. there are literally no positives to this project. It will cause even more significant traffic around the i59-288 merger, it will destroy basically all of the pregaming/postgaming culture around Minutemaid and BBVA, it funnels all of west-central houston's traffic to 610, exacerbating every other bottleneck of traffic this city already has, it racistly closes off near northside from downtown. In the event of a disaster, everyone north of i10 will be cut-off from getting to the medical center for any emergencies. It doesn't even tie into any public transportation plans, TxDOT is still a big "

  17. Fair point. The exact numbers I saw were: 58 houses, 433 apartments or condos, 486 public housing units, 340 businesses, five churches and two schools. So 977 homes, 340 businesses, 5 churches, and two schools. That still sounds like a pretty substantial negative to me.

  18. Rice University awarded grant for 'mass timber' building on campus Rice University has won a federal grant to help advance its plans to develop a building using "mass timber," a type of engineered wood touted as being more environmentally friendly than concrete or other materials. The $100,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service is portion of $1 million in funds designated to support the construction of mass timber projects on college campuses across the country. Mass timber refers to the use of engineered wood products as the structural com

  20. It does seem like this is something that can be put together very quickly, given the limited construction needed and the inherent small scale of a par 3 course. I guess I need to hit the range, since I haven't swung a club in over a year. . .

  22. Groundbreaking for "Trebly Park" because it is on block 333 and has 3 corners due to the terrible parking lot. Estimated completion of March 2022. Will include Tout Suite cafe.

  23. tree lined sidewalks with no median is really the best solution to maximize space, and create some beauty. here's a famous avenue with tree lined sidewalks. it's called the Champ Elysees, or some other exceedingly French type name with accents on half the letters.

  27. Agree, but the important part of this one is the first floor, not the other 5. And the Mondrian-style detailing appears to only be on that one corner.

  35. I can't wait for the inevitable clusterf?ck of traffic this will induce. That area is already so congested, adding a left turn from Northbound Studewood will be the I-beam that breaks the camel's back.

  39. To be clear, this is 1107 Shepherd. 1107 N Shepherd would be more like the Popeyes at 11th and Shepherd. In any case, at least there's now some idea of what will be going here. I assume this means the restaurant fka Floyd's/Mardi Gras/etc on Durham that used the parking lot will never reopen

  41. Really beautiful setting. HOUSTON IS BEAUTIFUL. Funny, I used to live about a mile south of this area and didn't know about it. The google earth view is reconstruction, while the satellite view is after construction started. It looks like they tore up the parking lot and removed a lot of trees. I hope they do put back in a lot of trees and keep the area green.
