  6. I agree with the sentiment that this is what the ruling classes want for us and it sucks. But I do think buildings like this are really needed. The low end of the market needs to be served. I think that's one of the reasons why everything seems so messed up right now. Can't build cheap houses, can't build cheap apartments, can't build cheap cars, etc. So as a consequence there's this weird income threshold where if you make above you get to participate fully in life and get married and have kids and do things, and the half of the population that earns less than $35k is going to live with their parents and be broke in their 40s and beyond.

  9. The architects have spent considerable time researching the original Leonard Gabert design in order to restore it correctly. And the new addition on the south side will be very sympathetic to the original design. All good.

  10. Looks like they have leased the spot on 19th Street that used to be Retropolis between Manready Mercantile and Teasip. Not much info on the website, but I am pretty sure it is the same people as in the Chron article. This is a breath of fresh air for the Heights. I would not have thought that anything like this would have even been a possibility at a time when everyone is fighting for a spot in the Heights for restaurants/bars/boutiques/spas, etc. https://houstontoymuseum.com/ https://www.chron.com/entertainment/article/Houston-Toy-Museum-looking-for-permanent-site-2004388.php

  11. Wonderful project! Skyhouse has been offering parking spots for $100/month to the general public just a block away. Parking definitely overbuilt in this area.

  12. I look forward to innumerable impotent rants on Nextdoor once this facility opens and the seniors living there start flocking to the post office right across the street from it. Before the old Heights post office on 11th at Yale closed, you could always count on someone being unable to resist expressing their impatience at being stuck in line behind elderly customers who moved at a glacial pace once they got up to the counter.

  17. Stopped by Sat afternoon and it was busy inside. Line for coffee was 5 or 6 people deep and a bunch of people checking out the shops. Still some construction on some of the spaces on the north side of the building. Looks like a Keller Williams office took most of the southern side that I thought was going to be shared office space. Does it make sense to change the name of this thread to represent the building itself?

  19. I like the example of trying to build a restaurant. Imagine if you bought a piece of land that is zoned for restaurant use only, and the city won't give you a permit to build a restaurant because you aren't actually selling burgers anywhere yet.

  21. I mean, they could easily split parts of the cap between development and parkland/plazas. This cap will be long and wide, with plenty of room for both. It doesn't have to be an either/or decision.

  22. Have a friend who is staying at The Laura tomorrow night before the marathon. Will try to get a trip report. I told him to keep a look out for anything that says HA or Alessandra.

  23. Isn't the famous quote "If you're explaining, you're losing"? I feel like that fits this pretty well.

  24. Traditionally, when your opponents arguments come down to semantics that not exactly a good sign. Also when your opponent continuously has to keep moving the goal post in effort to claim victory, that also isn't a good sign. When you have to push the courts to "fix" a definition of what is defined as a "railroad" in order to keep your narrative going, that is also not a good sign. We have seen this play out in my spheres over the past few years. It doesn't matter what side of any issue, or whatever tride is pushing whatever narrative. When you see these sorts of points playout and stack up, the side that is at this point usually loses.

  26. Took me a little digging to realize that "The Hub" is what's normally known as the "Satellite". Anyway, found this video about the new project. Sounds like they are attempting a food hall.

  28. Thanks @wilcal! Great summary. So are the owners the same as the Cidercade/Common Desk building? I thought someone mentioned Landry's in relation to this property. Although I guess they could be tenants of the building owners. The layout and description of the building reminds me of this building off of White Oak. Maybe not in terms of styling, but in terms of space and tenants (multiple restaurants etc).

  29. Still 8 stories but they are taking it down from the west side with long reach shears because that is where they have the room to stage the waste.

  31. Thanks for the kind words. Yeah, one of my friends worked summers at the Bobby McGee's Conglomeration (the restaurant's complete name) and the Walgreens in the same Deauville Shopping Center. In each case, he worked very long and late hours. I believe one of the Aldine Roundup yearbooks had an ad for Bobby McGee's. I wonder if I can find it and post it here?

  32. block book for this area just says "a replat of Windsor Plaza Apartments" - does anyone know anything more about them? the scan didn't turn out so well, but check out the pointy spikes! In 1972, I was the paperboy for the Chronicle for the Royal Windsor apts, and others on sage road. I remember it as a swinging singles complex. Telephone spool tables, ozarka water bottle terrariums, macromee (sic) hangers with ferns or sand candles. On sunday morning the sliding glass doors would be wide open, sometimes people passed out near the doors.
