  1. I don't think the Greyhound Station itself is to blame for the current state of the area, and losing it would actually be a negative in the grand scheme of a well-connected interstate transit option. You have the Megabus station as well as the Metro transit hub nearby and those two don't get nearly as much negative attention. There needs to be an increased police presence for a while to show these ne'er-do-wells, pimps, and drug dealers that they don't have the run of the place.
  2. Are you referring to the low income apartments planned for the Midtown Common lot? I'm sure the same NIMBY townhome owners that are actively fighting the Austin Street bikeway will try to kill that as well.
  3. The entire building has been re-painted in black and orange.
  4. @corbs315, click the instagram link in my post above. The last clip shows what appears to be a very large AC unit going onto the building. My guess is they're delayed, not gone.
  5. You may have forgotten how big it was going to be because it was supposed to be completed 3 years ago...
  6. Texting the number in your image leads you here: https://knockrentals.com/community/977e1c7a6267711e/apartment/rental/houston I might be scheduling a tour... 😄
  7. I thought the two way was supposed to be on Austin?
  8. I have a feeling that they jumped the gun on publishing that link and a lot more people than "friends and family" are interested in attending. The RSVP is now password protected.
  9. From their website: http://www.meekspartners.com/high-rise/block-387 7 over 3 Metal with Retail 291 unit count Status: In Design
  10. More details from the brochure: Construction of Laneways’ first residential tower will be completed this summer. It will comprise a broad mix of studios and one and two bedroom apartments for lease. The four future phases of Laneways are: three multi-family buildings and a condominium project. Caydon’s partnership with a well-known US hotel operator will herald the rise of Midtown’s first boutique hotel.
  11. The previous building had truck/trailer rental, with all of the inventory parked out back or on the roof. I guess the Midtown location will take most of their business during construction.
  12. East River would actually be a really good place to incorporate the watering hole idea. A commercial development similar Brisbane, Australia's Streets Beach development would be a very strong anchor for the retail side of this. They had a similar issue with water quality so they pumped the river water in and filtered it for the pool. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Lagoon+South+Bank/@-27.4784919,153.0236878,381m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x6b91579aac93d233:0x402a35af3deaf40!2sBrisbane+QLD,+Australia!3b1!8m2!3d-27.4697707!4d153.0251235!3m4!1s0x6b915a0ef5541857:0xbc6a81b1602ce03!8m2!3d-27.4782822!4d153.0235702

  14. Looks like at least a portion of this lot is being switched to an affordable housing project called Caroline Lofts by Mark-Dana Corp. 87 total units with 76 low income and 11 market rate. They're the same group behind the structure currently going up right next to the 45 North Scott Street exit ramp. https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2019/02/19/developer-planning-affordable-housing-project-in.html
