  1. Yes, two new parking garages as part of the Fayez Sarofim campus: http://www.mfah.org/about/campus-redevelopment/#section-glassell-school-art Additional key elements • Two underground parking garages • Two new, dedicated tunnels between the Nancy and Rich Kinder Building to the Caroline Wiess Law Building, and the Glassell School of Art to the Kinder Building
  2. The door was open today so I walked in. Met and talked with the owner. They are still building out the space and waiting on some permitting. One or two more months until opening. I think this will be a great addition to this neighborhood, hopefully it can draw in some of the downtown crowd as well.
  3. Their website is up and running: http://www.cafeza.com/ Should be opening very soon (my guess - not verified).
  4. The progress on this has been crawling lately. I wonder if they are having issues.
  5. With the MFAH and Menil expansions, opening of the Midwown art and theater center, art loft expansions in the FIrst Ward, etc. - I'm very hopeful Houston can work its way to becoming an "art hub of the South". We definitely have a leg up already on other major cities in the South, but we're still leagues behind cities like New York where you can't even put us in the same category. Hopefully the gap narrows.
  6. From today's MFAH email blast: We welcome MFACafé, coming this fall! Paolo Fronza and Matteo Alessandri, formerly of Fellini Caffè, team up once again to bring an exciting new dining option to Houston. Their new, sophisticated café will offer Northern Italian-inspired fare when it opens this fall in the Museum's Audrey Jones Beck Building. In the meantime, freshly prepared sandwiches and salads are available at our temporary pop-up café now that Cafe Express service has ended. And as always, tasty bites continue to be served up daily by food trucks parked next to our Cullen Sculpture Garden.
  7. Does anyone have an estimate on the average daily rider / average daily ticket ratio?
  8. I'm thinking this will look much much better in person. The renderings are pretty basic.
  9. With parking spaces in this area of downtown at well over $200 / month, this is not surprising.
  10. http://eepurl.com/boDEd1 Details at the above link.
  11. The water had already started to subside. I think the bottom floor and some equipment got flooded.
