  1. Construction fencing has gone up along the southwest corner...a pretty large expanse of land that stretches from what used to be a gas station west to past what used to be a La Quinta (that motel is still standing). I'm hearing rumblings of mixed use, similar to CityCentre. Anyone know anything about this?
  2. I've been trying to find old pictures of T&C Village, pre-mall if possible, for a while now. I can't seem to find any. Was hoping to show my wife what it used to look like. If any of you can find and post any pictures like that, I'd appreciate it.
  3. sorry if i offended someone. i saw a picture of a strip center i know to be at Highway 6 @ I-10 in the OP with an address that i know to be at Highway 6 @ I-10 in the OP there's a question mark in the thread title as to location of the strip center.... so i assumed it was ok to point out that the location was at Highway 6 @ I-10.
  4. No, it's not. This is at Highway 6 and I-10. The 14000 block of the Katy Freeway is well past the beltway. It's the 11000 block at Kirkwood.
  5. Went there this weekend to Studio Movie Grill. The parking garages are super convenient. You definitely get the idea of the potential this project when you walk through it.
  6. "In Texas" being the operative words in this phrase. I can tell you absolutely distressed financial assets (many secured by real property) from around the country are being auctioned off like crazy at very low prices. They are finding buyers now. Many of the same people who made tons after the last downturn have positioned for the next wave of this stuff. The S&L crisis is almost a mirror image of what we see going on in NY right now.....nearly every bank in Texas failed. I think Frost Bank was the lone survivor. This problem is to NY was the S&L crisis was to Texas. And eventually it spreads.
  7. I don't think it was the Beltway that killed it....it was the construction on the Beltway (which seemingly took forever) that killed it. Had the Beltway already been there, I have no doubt that T&C Mall could have survived.
  8. This is excellent. You're absolutely right. It was open and light...and great point about the stairs. It was contemporary and felt like it was ahead of its time when you were in there. You and I are probably roughly the same age and grew up in the same area...with the same memories of this place. Playing Ikari Warriors at Tilt was all good.
  9. Thanks for the information! My kids will be glad to know Toys 'R' Us isn't gone forever from our side of town.
  10. I grew up on the west side, and that Toys 'R' Us location has been around for as long as I can remember. It's been closed up since Ike. Any idea what's happening with it?
  11. I'd just like to say that the Cuban tacos at El Rey are proof of the existence of God, andI'm thrilled it's closer to home now. That is all. Wait...one more thing...when does Freebird's open? I haven't seen any signage there that this is opening up there.
  12. It's my understanding that most of the tenants committted to the second office tower have backed out now. Economy sucks. Looking forward to Studio Movie Grill, though!!!
  13. I grew up on the west side, and I absolutely remember that. The train moved super-slow through town and you'd wait forever for it to go by. I also remember hearing the train at night from my home off of Dairy Ashford, as a kid.
