  1. East River - KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    This is pretty high ground. A levee or a berm really aren't necessary, and could have the effect of interfering with the interaction with the waterfront.
  2. East River - KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    uh, yeah, we do... said the middle aged white guy. This is Houston, not Salt Lake City.
  3. 8200 Washington Ave

    Why on earth do they not align the access drive with the crossover? As it is, this site can only be reached from westbound Washington - which makes getting to it from the actual Timbergrove or any points west a real PITA.
  4. 1002 Westheimer

    Years ago, Spec of Spec's opened a restaurant with higher prices and no tipping - complete with table tents telling the customers that he considered paying his employees to be his responsibility, not theirs. It didn't last very long... then again, this was also long before Midtown was a thing.
  5. East River - KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    Is Whole Goods an expensive organic hardware store?
  6. Blossom Hotel Houston: 16-Story Hotel

    No triskaidekaphobiacs in this group...
  7. High Speed Rail / Texas Triangle

    Houston / San Antonio / Dallas triangle... too bad they can't call it the Southwest Railroad.
  8. Elysian Viaduct removal

    My mistake. Thanks for the correction.
  9. Lower Westheimer Reconstruction

    (***gnaws on steering wheel in frustration***)
  10. Upon tasting the dirt on the toothpick you can then determine what kind of dirt it is, and how well it drains and can bear a load.
  11. Elysian Viaduct removal

    Yes - this is where the extension of the Hardy Toll Road into downtown will be. The viaduct being replaced didn't have shoulders and was quite old. Hardy from the viaduct's north landing to the loop is a surface street with intersections; it, too will be replaced.
  12. High Speed Rail / Texas Triangle

    Let's not forget the equity side of things. Companies don't offer stock (or other fractional ownership interests) because they feel lonely if they don't belong to enough people. (edit: I see the emoticons are still borked)
  13. Welcome back, Lume. Yes, this is going to be a pretty good reboot of the park, making it more resilient than the monoculture it was before (which really got clobbered by the really hot, dry summer a few years ago), as well as opening up some areas that were essentially inaccessible.
  14. Porretto Beach Abandonment

    According to the attached .pdf, it does mean "in front of the seawall." As in, between the seawall and the Gulf.
  15. Summer but sad

    Depression and anxiety often come as a matched set. If you think you need help, then by all means reach out to a professional. It's what you would do if you had a persistent cough, or if you sprained your ankle. They're all medical issues in one way or another.
