  1. Cities like New York and Atlanta are sending us there homeless people... talked to one downtown that wanted money to get back to Atlanta after they put him on a bus to Houston. Dont know the validity of the statement but that’s what he told me haha

  3. This is just conceptual and not an actual build right?

    3540 W. Dallas St: Planned Mixed-Use by Hanover

    I’ve actually been in their building, Inmar HQ, in Winston-Salem, and it is one of the nicest developments I have seen. Very well done. It is no Zaha Hadid, but that would look out of place here.

    Lower Heights District

    I agree with this. This development reminds of University Village in Seattle, WA. It is very walkable and popular, even though it has a large parking lot in front of the grocery store. I can definitely see this lot becoming a parking garage in the future if the development becomes a huge success, but I like this project from the look of it so far.
  7. Although I agree that this is awful news, a parking garage like the Lyric Center one would not be bad. We will just have to wait to see what the renderings look like. Cant believe that building was torn down for that though

    Buffalo Bayou Master Plan

    Indeed!! Excited for more park land!!
  11. It is more than just a vision. I would say it is basically a close to done deal. When I suggested the cap park between Midtown/Third Ward, they responded that it is harder there because there aren’t any large companies making donations similar to the EaDo cap. That to me sounded like the cap park idea has received lots of investment from companies in Downtown. Also, they mentioned that the first phase of the project will be downtown because that is where the heaviest traffic is, and their goal is to finish construction 2026 for the downtown section. Northern sections will come later

    Plan Downtown the next 20 years

    Yes, I actually talked to the city planner for this poster, and he was telling me how that area is mainly industrial and that it floods a lot. We talked about the possibility of creating a wildlife Island park similar to Stanley Park in Vancouver; which would help reduce flooding in the area.
  13. I was there too and the projects looked amazing! The only part I felt is forgotten is the Third Ward/Midtown area. I don’t feel that pretty bridges are enough to connect two neighborhoods. I suggested another cap park in that area.

    Emancipation Center, Dowling/Elgin St.

    I disliked the old one so much!! The new one is a lot better. The problem with the old design is that in 5 years it will look outdated. I have seen spherical buildings like that before and I always think they look old. The new one, although not different from other buildings, will still look nice come 10-15 years. Just my opinion.

    Houston Center Redevelopment

    They will come. All these food halls will become the key tenants of the downtown mall (similar to what department stores are now... which are slowly disappearing) so these food halls will anchor the stores. I like where we are going with the food halls
