  1. Since I live on this street, I always was fascinated by 407 Avondale St. Built in 1910 Depending on the season, sometimes you can't even see the house because of the big tree out front.
  2. I was kind of wondering if I would get shit for sharing the story of the lady pooping . It is a little off topic, and we have been down that road with other projects in midtown. Then like clockwork yesterday afternoon 5pm while driving my kids home from their daycare downtown I got to show them the basic mechanisms of a drug deal right in front of us in the middle of the intersection on the tracks next to the McDonalds. Very fun spot! Excited to see what will happen in about an hour.
  3. Saw a woman taking a dump this morning next block adjacent to Greyhound Station . ROse Gold Cocktail lounge, before it was Tarakaan Restaurant Almost spit out my coffee.
  4. I was on my bike a while back and stumbled upon this building with the red roof below JDC Staff Parking - looks incredibly old and interesting. Anybody know what it used to be?
  5. Williams Brothers are the single largest owner of American Crane's in the world, old school technology , American Crane Corporation was bought by Terex in the mid 90's and haven't built a new crane since. Pretty wild to see some of their bigger one's on jobs like this. I know there is a crane operator on here would be curious to hear his take on this random fact.
  6. They will need full time cop after hours , i hate the NEW little homeless camp that's set up on Webster - just tons of trash, needles, garbage. I drive my kids home from school past it everyday and I am having to get creative to distract them from grown adults using the street as a bathroom, passed out and convulsing. I'm not trying to turn this thread into a personal rant but it's just sad. With all the resources close by to help, I guess they need to want the help that's out there.
  7. Amegy bank parking lot / block next to this block (387)being excavated - is it part of this development? Seperate block than 387 - it has a lot of activity as well.
  8. Is this project in tandem with the Amegy Bank parking lot / building construction going on ? Laydown site perhaps
  9. I think if you look at what Pearl has done in Midtown, I wouldn't be surprised if they don't get started on this bad boy until the Whole Foods is totally open and done. Not sure if they or whole foods are doing the work for the grocery store but it's full go in there right now INSIDE
  10. Nice! - looks like they are re-doing the park as well? fences off heavy equipment / midtown sign covered
  11. place is bumping every weekend, may just have the secret sauce and some staying power. Line 30-40 deep to get in on Sat, Sunday brunch. Living across the street besides the valet and cars have no issue with this place. Just need to find a downtime (during the week) to check out the food! When WF opens up I see a lot of the empty lots around , late night pie and across the street, Bunch CO block ect filling in fast.
  12. Might be worth the wait - impressive stuff she's done.
  13. I heard Liftime fitness is coming to Greenstreet - has that been posted here
  14. fence around the property, hopefully they get started!
  15. Was walking my dog last night and did a double take - i walk past this building weekly and noticed for the first time CityPlace Midtown signage on the building. Looks like Cityplace sucked it up and brought it into the fold. Wonder if this was in the plans all along for the original developer or if it came about naturally? Interesting...
  16. Just a run of the mill red brick apartment would have fit in really well and would have been timeless. As an unfortunate stucco owner this is seriously very dumb!
  17. I saw the guts of the building half way demolished, parking structure, some old bricks, IMO not too much to be sad about, if Chevron actually does something with this block that would be cool. Don't really see why they would knock it down just to grow grass
  18. I kind of feel you @downtownian - i know there are constant calls for a target downtown but having just survived a quick trip to the one on Sawyer, I think the days of the big box target store's are numbered. Picking up on your comment, an Amazon GO store where there is no checkout. I will start the calls for one of these to pop up!
  19. Waiting for the GFRE (Ground Floor Retail Enthusiasts) to swarm this news with the vigor they use when there is none .............
  20. There are some great old buildings still hiding out in Midtown on the East side of Main Street. Hopefully as the Aussie's tower goes up , they will be re purposed from urine stained sleeping sidewalks to more of what you have described. Great prose by the way. I feel like I was there!
  21. HAIF's favorite question - will they fix the sign? LIGHTITUP!
