  1. Yes it does. Was there the other day and they said they were closing
  2. I also wish it was light rail, but BRT is a great way to get the system built out. I can see a long distant future where these are transformed into light rail also, the silver line currently goes nowhere, which is why ridership is low. I can see it getting a huge boost with this line
  3. You can and should be able to take your car. I am not against you driving your car, . There is surplus of space for transit… Memorial Drive, Allen Parkway, Washington, Shepherd, Richmond, Westheimer, Montrose Blvd, Heights Blvd, N Main, Holcombe, Hirsch/Waco, Lockwood, Cavalcade/West 20th It’s about the willingness to build transit.
  4. If anyone was confused by what I said, I never said “get rid of roads.” I-10 is a not a road, it’s a 26-lane monstrosity that we should be embarrassed to have in our city. I-45 will become another embarrassment with the small positives of the cap park and removing the pierce elevated. Billions can be better spent building out transit throughout the core to reduce short trips.
  5. I am commuting from the suburbs to an office in the Heights. The alternative is so bad that I don’t even think it can be considered as an alternative 😂
  6. Houston is the ideal city. It’s the closest thing to true capitalism in America (no zoning laws) which I why it is so affordable to live here and the most diverse city. I wouldn’t want to live in a copy of what Austin has become, although the hills would be nice. Also, data is a little misleading because I selected I preferred driving a car because I have no better alternatives right now coming from the suburbs. But my decision to live where I live shouldn’t reduce the quality of life of the people that live where they live.
  7. I live in the suburbs. This would inconvenience me, but I would happily let it do so for a better, cleaner, safer, greener, more beautiful city. I wish every highway inside the loop looked like Allen Parkway, tbh. It flows at a good speed with the occasional stoplight, without being a giant concrete scar.
  8. I wish the title read, “TxDOT Proposes Razing I-10 near I-45
  9. I’m excited about the coffee shop and restaurant!
  10. I bet the view of downtown from the inside is amazing. The railroad curves right in front, so nothing will ever block the view
  11. I looked up Pegasus Park and laughed as well… shouldn’t be mentioned in the same sentence as TMC3 definitely feels like this whole “biotech triangle” is a marketing plan deployed by Austin and Dallas to not be left behind in this space
  12. You’ve explained this twice. We understand the governing entities of each type of development and how they work; however, it doesn’t mean it is right. TXDOT should be able to fund other developments that help transportation across the state if that’s what the local communities want, but that’s assuming we live in a democracy.
  13. I’ll back this up by saying that their name says Transportation in it. seems like they only consider freeways transit. They’re clueless
  14. I, in turn, still think it is too wide. Make it a one lane road and make the sidewalks wider, add a bike lane, and plant more trees
  15. Hey, can I share this picture on my social media page, @livelihood and @livelihoodprojects
  16. Sorry, but this is just some backwards thinking in my opinion. Nature is grander than anything we as humans will ever build, and it needs to be respected as such. Plus, it is just so much more beautiful when buildings are built into nature instead of over it . Imagine thinking that The Woodlands would be much more successful and “grand” if they cut down their trees so that we could see some buildings. They’re a model for the entire city to follow
  17. I want floating buildings on the water with water level retail and underwater basements
  18. I vote for Option D because the above are atrocious:
  19. I would prefer a 7 story condo tower that fits the design and character of the neighborhood than a giant storage building with 0 character
  20. If done with the right materials, I think it’ll look good. It’s daunting, imposing, and it feels strong. Definitely something that feels reserved for only the few. Which is the target that they’re going for. If given the cheap RD treatment, it will look horrible
  21. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. In my personal opinion, natural beauty extends far beyond mountains, waterfalls, lakes, etc. Even the desert itself is beautiful in its way. But just how there are people who just like and listen to rap or rock, there will be people who just like a particular terrain and find others inferior. For all of us who do find Houston naturally beautiful, you’re not alone, lol to get back on topic, I can’t wait for the Eastern part of Buffalo Bayou to be completed. I am sure it will be “beautiful”😂
  22. Exactly! It is all a matter of perspective. Houston is so beautiful, diverse, and stunning in its way. The reason why we’ve never done well to protect/preserve our environment is because of this negative perception that we aren’t naturally beautiful. If we want to be more sustainable, greener, and preserve our natural beauty (Prairies, Swamps, Bayous, Forests, Savannahs, etc) , we need to change our way of thinking and appreciate the unique natural beauty that we are blessed with. Our appreciation will lead developers to appreciate nature as well as there is monetary benefits towards doing so.
