  1. Honestly, I don’t think that this is “construction” related. They do this when they do work on the exterior of building to protect the sidewalk below. Maybe they are cleaning, repairing/replacing damaged granite, or doing something more than just washing the windows.
  2. Certainly look like scaffolding to me.
  3. The landscaping is turning out to be awesome. Can’t wait to see it in September!
  4. They raised the grade of the building they just built. Don’t you think that they would do the same for this building? I mean, it’s not like they forgotten about Harvey.
  5. I think you’re correct. Traffic is a result of any reasonably sized development. In comparison, to traffic that East River will produce, the NRP development will be nothing. Right now, traffic on Jensen SD Clinton is relatively light. When/if the traffic circle at Jensen/Navigation get built, will have a huge impact in the traffic, in a positive way. Burt, I certainly have concerns about concentrating low income housing in any specific area of the city, for example the east end. But, I have a serious question. Which would you rather: 1. Give private developers incentives through tax breaks to construct LIH. Or, 2. Pay for LIH directly with revenue that the city has collected in the forms of taxes? Do you believe that the city can build reasonable quality low income housing more efficiently than a developer (with oversight)? The housing has to get built one way or another. Unless there is another way to fund “public housing”.
  6. Hi pm91. I am speaking from a homeowner's perspective, in the neighborhood that your are talking about (East Bayou District). At the core of this neighborhood is Kennedy Place, a 108unit/224bedroom, Houston Housing Authority, low income housing project. This whole neighborhood, as you see it now, has grown up around this. There are literally, hundreds of new homes surrounding this development on all sides. Property values have sky-rocketed since the purchase my new townhome in 2013, and I attribute it to the potential of the East River property, as well as proximity to downtown and easy access to highways and all central city neighborhoods (Montrose, Heights, Midtown, EADO, etc...). So, the NRP project you are speaking of, is across the Bayou, on the southern bank . Much of this is designed as a replacement for Clayton Homes, which is currently being demolished and will be fully eliminated. THE NRP (which was actually further from the East Bayou District) will have little effect or interaction on this neighborhood. The closer proposed development is the OJALA mixed income development which 304units are proposed along with hundreds of market rate units. It's a large piece of property. Details are sketchy (and that is a concern) but it is easy to see how this could become a development of more than 1000 new units, as what has been indicated. In my opinion, what will effect the neighborhood more, is the additional residents that this development is likely to bring, which will bring more retail (to East River and elsewhere), which is desperately needed. As I see it, The enormous size of East River, the amenities and residents it will bring, the ongoing development of he the Bayou/BBP will far overshadow a few hundred additional low income residents.

  7. ^^Looks like a smoking area to me.
  8. Umm, Yeah. So, you're not going to be looking at the rugs when you drive by. You might not even notice the name of the showroom, even though signs say it twice because of that...Thing.
  9. The problem with senior living in high rises...fire alarms and actual fires.
  10. ...do not expose Water Feature to direct sunlight. ...
  11. I am just referring to Ojala. I’m not entirely sure about the NRP proposal. But, 304 “affordable” units, in a development of (I’ve heard) up to 1100units, is not too bad. In fact it good! Now, admittedly, I haven’t seen the many details on the project and don’t know what it’s current size, let alone design and format is. But, I’m not upset by what I’ve heard thus far, and I live in the neighborhood. I would appreciate more details from the developer and from HHA.
  12. I imagine it’s in midways’s best interest to have as many residents as close to the development as possible. These are mixed income projects with the majority at market rate. This can’t hurt their marketing efforts, I would think. You’re not going to get high end development backing up to train tracks and a newly rerouted 45/69, elevated highway.
  13. Look, Monarch, the trees are no longer going to be steel wool, either.
  14. Wait. So, you’d gather with people? To eat...food? Prepared by others? Ridiculous.
  15. Its, Interesting that the property fronting Clinton, is continues to be excluded from the phased development. Midway has loosely indicated that town-home, or single family residential was likely, I wonder if this is still the case.
  16. Waiting for God to reveal himself in the details on this one.
  17. “Excuse me, Sir. Are you married?” ”Where are you, from?” nunyadam!
  18. Do you really think, even for a moment, that THAT is what our government would fund and build? We would be getting knock of versions, made of concrete and foam. ridiculous.
  19. I prefer the apartments, to townhomes. Need some diversity in residences and residents moving in.
  20. ^^ If true, that’s all I need to Love the name. thanks for the research @ChannelTwoNews
