  1. Having the patio being under the trees would be cool, but the trees aren't big enough yet and I'm not sure if that would be in compliance with TABC rules regarding a controlled perimeter for alcohol. I was basing my original comment off of their previous site plan:
  2. I believe the last restaurant spot is by the parking garage walk-in entrance on Main. I think that location had patio space included, which would be fitting for Home Slice.
  3. I am using Chrome and double-checked it on IE. I think Chrome auto-blocks some features so you may check your site settings.
  4. Here's the direct link: http://webcampub.multivista.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=aPublicWebcam.embed&WebcamPublicEmbedUID=FC19B512-8A6E-4D1F-AD93-1FCCACCEDA69&HLS=1
  5. Per the RFQ, you are correct: New hotel tower immediately adjacent to...the existing...hotel Pedestrian bridge...that will connect the hotel to the parking garage located on the east side of S Braeswood. (the garage is on the east side, not the new tower) Additional bridge...from the hotel to garage 17 immediately south. So the new hotel is next to the existing one, with a pedestrian bridge connecting to the rectangular garage across the street and there is the possibility of a tie-in with the matching pink garage next door.
  6. This Google streetview shows that it's been there since at least December 2018: https://www.google.com/maps/place/2704+Helena+St,+Houston,+TX+77006/@29.7486156,-95.3816991,3a,75y,313.3h,92.15t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s0e75-MkQnNphV50ysomjJg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192!4m5!3m4!1s0x8640bf6823968773:0x28b21434453a8ad7!8m2!3d29.7487271!4d-95.381911
  7. Paying to tear them down is a lot more expensive than selling them to someone who will pay to move them off the lot. This does hint at long timeline until the property is developed though, unless they are giving them away.
  8. That one looks like it will butt up against Residences at Hardy Yards (separated by the access road off Leona) and run all the way to Fulton. I don't see any GFR and there is quite a lot of ground level parking... but there's still a lot of the site left for retail and/or office, and perhaps they're waiting for the beds to fill up before starting on those components?
  9. I was able to give this building a pass even with the mishmash styles that they've hobbled together, but that faux balcony balustrade is over the line. This is unforgiveable.
  10. They have one entrance off a busy one-way street. They should have considered flipping the site plan to allow entry from the other streets to engage with the neighborhood and let people who missed the main entrance a second chance to turn in.
  11. Now that you mention the fence, I just noticed that you can see it in the drone pic I took the other night:
  12. The building on the corner of this lot will host a temporary art installation: https://m.bpt.me/event/4303955
  13. There are workers on site doing framing and plumbing. Looks like this one is back on track.
