  1. I was made aware that there were last minute petitions to save the old gas station that was here. I live in the area, and I am truly disappointed. This hurts my heart.... not so much that we are getting a gas station... but we lost one of the coolest old buildings that had so much potential.
  2. So... is it still "on hold" or have they pulled the trigger? Things seem to be a bit more favorable now
  3. These are all small drops in a very very big pond... one / 2 / 20 apartments aren't going to change all of Midtown. you need hundreds of blocks to get some love in order for that to happen. What Camden project has not started leasing? the one by the park? I thought it was done and leased up?
  4. You're right on the value of land. My comment was more of an observation of the quality of existing development. I believe there is a lot of existing development that is past it's effective use in Montrose. There are multiple layers of redevelopment needed. Ex: 1880-1940 historic homes / 1950s light industrial / 1960's apartments / 1970's small offices / 1980's townhomes / 1990's-2000's strip centers - all needing repair or replacement. I would say there is still 60% of properties in Montrose still needing this kind of attention. All these things contribute to a somewhat disjointed and occasio
  5. Here is the deal - Midtown as a market is very large. It has advantages and disadvantages... While losing some projects is disappointing, We should consider the bigger picture... Area: Located between Southern Downtown / Montrose / Museum Park / 3rd Ward None of these 4 areas is particularly affluent (yet) Museum Park is gentrifying, a process that will take awhile Montrose is still quite rough around the edges and does not have the same quality or quantity of investment that Greater Heights is seeing, for example Southern Downtown is arguably the most challenged
  6. SPECIFICALLY - buildings on the south side of the intersection of Caroline & Preston - AND - The Houston Cotton Exchange building on the corner of Caroline & Prairie !!
  7. This is silly... just let them get started so it can be over sooner.
  8. I think it is still up in the air right now...
  9. This rendering looks like 8 floors of residential over 4 floors of parking.... the write up is off or the rendering is off?
  10. Does anyone know if they have fixed the bayou trails here?
  11. So, before I get too riled up... is this the block that Chevron tore down the beautiful old building, and then did nothing with it... and perhaps they sold it after they tore it down???
  12. So how do we rank with other metropolitan areas?
  13. This looks wonderful. Area needs some classic U shaped units. I’m a fan so far.
  14. That is a very cool, Ferris Bueller type structure... technically Cameron’s house.
