  1. We all realize how important coronavirus protection is to a building's structure, but some may not realize the secondary purpose is for supporting the stone(?) cladding:
  2. Agreed. We need a real aquarium, not a restaurant that confuses tourists into thinking it is one.
  3. I saw moving trucks at the church this past week so it looks like they might start demolition soon.
  4. That photo was taken at 3:30 PM, near the sun's minimum (winter) elevation. My guess is that during the summer (sun's maximum elevation) the northern half of the pool will get direct sun for 2-3 hours. So yes, no sunscreen necessary.
  5. The pool looks like it's getting close. (Photo taken Saturday, 2/22)
  6. Just wanted to give a heads-up to anyone interested in attending. The Planning Dept. website doesn't show the next meeting date. WHAT: Public hearing to consider the proposed Midtown Walkable Place Pilot Area Plan WHEN: Thursday, March 5, 2:30PM WHERE: City Hall Annex Chambers, Public Level (900 Bagby St.) MORE INFO: The plan addresses things like setbacks, sidewalk widths, and the location of parking spaces. http://www.houstontx.gov/planning/Commissions/walkable-places-midtown.html http://www.houstontx.gov/planning/wp-committee.html
  7. The previous post referenced a site close to the Med Center large enough for a Microsoft campus. That's the first chunk of land that came to mind. As much as I would like Microsoft to move into the Ion, I'm hesitant to think that Rice would allow any company to put a "campus" there.
  8. Don't forget about the UT land that's for sale south of the Med Center.
  9. Yes, it's open. Nice spot to hang out after work. They have a sign in the bar area that they update each day with the time of sunset, which I thought was a nice touch.
  10. I believe they closed for construction/remodeling. They recently applied for a setback variance so not sure if this a major change to the existing structure or if they are adding an additional one.
  11. The Instagram account makes this look like it's a place for "influencers" to smell each other's farts. I'm glad the building is occupied, but I doubt I will be a customer.
  12. It appears the square footage in their filing was a typo. CultureMap Houston is reporting 2,800 sqft addition, which is more in line with the Bar Munich takeover I was imagining. http://houston.culturemap.com/news/restaurants-bars/01-31-20-glorias-latin-cuisine-midtown-location-closed-remodeling/
  13. The more I see the Rowdy tags on HAIF threads, the more I wonder if he/she is a commenter here...
  14. The retractable roof is now fully installed. I'm wondering if this is going to be another club/concert venue.
