  1. I passed by this morning and snapped a surreal photo:
  2. Swiping more news from /r/houston: https://www.texascentral.com/posts/design-build-contract-signed-with-salini-impreglio/ Some excerpts: Also from the PDF press release: EDIT: @102IAHexpress and I posted the news simultaneously 😁
  3. Sharing some content from /r/houston: The above links to a cached ABC13 article: Associated video: https://abc13.com/video/embed/?pid=2311749 And TCR Press Release regarding the news: https://www.texascentral.com/posts/another-major-milestone-for-your-high-speed-train/ Another post also shared this Japan Railway Journal episode about the project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mw41m2pE60U Rather dull but learned about the various Shinkansen design iterations with a perfect safety rating for over 50 years.
  4. Another editorial against the TxDOT plan in the Houston Chronicle: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/opinion/outlook/article/Widening-I-45-will-be-a-disaster-for-Houston-14417614.php
  5. Took this over Labor Day weekend. I haven't seen many shots from this angle.
  6. Earth moving equipment on the site of City Centre North (along I-10 Frontage Rd) spotted yesterday. Something in the works?
  7. New Houston Chronicle article yesterday: Houston’s long-range transit plan could go to voters without some specifics
  8. New article in the Houston Chronicle that I haven't seen posted yet: Massive I-45 rebuild has big opposition to overcome, from air quality to flooding to low-income housing displacements It is a $7 billion plan aimed at easing traffic by adding managed lanes and redesigning I-45, but worries of further displacement, flooding and air quality linger as the project moves ahead. EDIT: Try this link instead: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/transportation/article/Massive-I-45-project-will-remake-Houston-freeway-13999092.php?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=HC_TexasTake&utm_term=news&utm_content=briefing
  9. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2019-02-13/why-america-s-new-apartment-buildings-all-look-the-same?srnd=businessweek-v2 Details the history and reasons for the proliferation of apartment mid-rises with five stick-built floors over one concrete podium (five-over-one) and the apartment wrap known as the "Texas doughnut." And of course these buildings are a high fire risk before walls and sprinklers are installed, as we saw with the total loss of the unfinished mid-rise at W. Dallas and Montrose. Thought HAIF would appreciate the article.
  10. While chatting with Bob at Imparali Tailor today, I learned that all tenants in his building were given a 6 month notice to vacate. He said the building would be torn down in order to build a 15 story office tower. This is basically just hearsay, but I thought HAIF would like to know. The building is across Richmond from Midway's Kirby Grove. I didn't find a previous thread for this address in a search. Apologies if this is old news.
  11. Good find! Exciting news. I hope Khun Kay Thai finds a new home in those 2 stories of ground floor retail.
  12. They are now tearing down the buildings in the block described in my previous post. Phase 3 coming soon? I'll try to snag a pic.
