  1. You think people are excited a business (that is surrounded by empty parking lots) is closing because it has a parking lot? If this was 5-10 years from now when Rice has completed developed every other phase of construction, I could see that. This closing will only add to the emptiness in the neighborhood and remove an affordable grocery option for a large swath of central Houston. I understand that negotiations were not successful, but this is not a good turn of events for any stakeholder (Rice included).
  2. Your link 404s now. Here's the active one: https://realtynewsreport.com/from-kabul-to-historic-downtown-houston-another-construction-job-and-another-corporate-headquarters-for-space-city/
  3. Hallway fire prank sounds very specific... perhaps something from personal experience? 😬
  4. From what I remember seeing on an Instagram story, 8th Wonder already had that banner and let them borrow it.
  5. I'm confused as to why the ramp would be any steeper than the garage next to it? The lots are both the same length. Do they not own the whole strip?
  6. Interesting. I've never seen lifting lugs for something that size that weren't padeyes. I'll have to give it a closer look next time I see one. Absolutely love all of the new things we learn on this forum! Thanks for the info!
  7. That can't be how they normally lift the counterweights... slings are not designed to be point loaded like that. Not to mention the fact that they're not secured; any slip and those suckers are hitting the pavement (as well as whoever is underneath). I wonder if someone forgot to bring the shackles and they all decided to take a DANGEROUS shortcut.
  8. Crew on site today. Windows are going up quick!
  9. Looks like developers are falling over themselves to get projects out of the ground right now. Phase two coming soon?
  10. I thought a new thread was started when St. Joseph's sold the building and the redevelopment was announced, but alas I cannot find it.
  11. I like that they're putting a quirky design on the building, but it really irks me that the painters didn't check the horizontal spacing of their reference points. Or maybe I'm just being too nitpicky. Does anyone else notice it?
  12. Looks like have a major tenant secured. Thanks!
  13. I can't find the thread that had renderings and site plan, but the developers are seeking setback and visibility triangle variances. It will go before the Planning Commission on Thursday, 5/28. The location is the Southwest corner of Austin/Webster intersection where Midtown Bail Bonds used to operate.
  14. That would be a cool idea if they tried it. I guess they could be the sole alcohol vendor and make up for lost food sales that way.
  15. Too small for food trucks as they cannot block the sidewalk (also, why food trucks at a restaurant?). This appears to be a terribly implemented method of turning public street parking into private restaurant parking.
