  1. As far as I know, the only substantial work to be completed was the construction of the partition along Main & McGowen. No permits were ever issued by the city.
  2. Building permits show this being a low budget ($7,000 valuation) office remodel.
  3. There's a waste water sign on the fence that says something along the lines of Q3 2022 completion (I think it was Oct, but don't remember). Still very fast considering the size of the project
  4. A chunk of new permits issued on 8/30. Seems like this one is crawling forward.
  5. Looks like the entity that owns this development also owns another gas station branded as "Primetime" with additional retail units. So this may end up with three retail tenants (based on the three doors shown in the progress photo). Here's the other property: https://www.google.com/maps/@29.6916775,-95.7414373,3a,52.9y,178.61h,87.87t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s-97Nf9Gmf6hhc36PzHAYTg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
  6. Workers on site today. Really impressed with the quality and speed of this development's construction.
  7. More townhomes are confirmed. midtownmodernhtx.com
  8. "What in the wild, wild world of sports is going on here?"
  9. They must have noticed my comment about Rowdy and rushed to the permit office 🤣
  10. I haven't seen an approved demo permit, so maybe it's just easier to apply a layer of CYA paint to avoid the fine like you said. Hopefully Rowdy doesn't notice the blank canvas!
  11. Not sure if the wood structures are related, but the entities that own this lot (BAP 2800, LLC & Grassy Knoll, LLC) just submitted documentation asserting that the groundwater pollution under the site has reached an acceptable level. Assuming the monitoring/abatement is complete, this entire block is now available for immediate development. https://www.publicworks.houstontx.gov/sites/default/files/assets/executive_summary_2020_148_fpc.pdf Also of note, this same group is supposed to be speaking 8/10 at this meeting: City of Houston Special-Called Council Committee on Regulatory and Neighborhood Affairs
  12. Don't get too caught up in guessing the location. The name translates as "Hopefully" East Riverside, so they don't seem too sure about where it will be yet... 😂 I'll show myself out
  13. They've got a whole tangle of LLCs, which were all created in the past 2-3 months and everything was set up through registered agents and attorneys. Based on the name, this sounds like more townhomes which is a shame if they own an entire block and a half.
  14. This an extremely old thread to bump, but I saw they are ripping up the parking lot in the red outline below. This is a big chunk of land so hopefully we'll see a midrise with GFR. 🤞🤞🤞
  15. Agreed. That is what Midtown, Montrose, East End, and all of the peripheral downtown neighborhoods are supposed to look like. Cut it out with the townhouses and build some real density.
  16. Asbestos abatement in progress at the small building on the corner. My guess is it will be down in a couple weeks.
  17. Soil samples being taken at the private park. The rig is hard to see, but it's behind the gazebo.
  18. Vapor barrier installed and forms re-installed.
