  1. I see that trailer on my evening walks. I’m pretty sure Jason Voorhees or Michael Myers pops out of it from time to time.
  2. Looks like groundbreaking is tomorrow: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/article/IAH-to-break-ground-on-expanded-international-14542242.php
  3. I saw some activity on one of the lots by this site a couple weekends ago. I’ll have to walk by again to see if it might be related to this.
  4. There’s still room for Captain Twisty. Two Hermann is planned on the northeast side of the lot, in the space between the rendering for the two towers shown here.
  5. I count 48 stories on the tower, though I struggle with counts for stories on garage podiums. It's a nice looking tower.
  6. I remember seeing soil samples taken back when I still worked in the area. Glad something is moving forward.
  7. I saw that Rowdy tagged it on the east side.
  8. Munoz Albin has this "Institutional Campus Master Plan" for what appears to be the area around the Menil: https://munozalbin.com/project/institutional-campus-master-plan/ Apartments facing Richmond appear to have 8 stories. I don't know how to extract renderings from other sites (I only figured out how to post my photos to Imgur earlier this year), so one of our more techno-savvy posters will have to do that.
  9. Plat for X Houston was recorded September 3rd, sans variance. Film Code No. 689604 of the map records.
  10. Since when has anybody on HAIF wanted to wait to see plans unfurled. 😉
  11. Rice is a university, so you'd have to expect some type of student opposition to its actions from a segment of its students. This segment, even with Rice's relatively small enrollment, appears to be quite small: Facebook indicates it has only 39 followers and 38 "likes." The one point the group makes with which I am somewhat sympathetic is Fiesta's presence in what would otherwise be a food desert. I am curious if Rice would explore a Buffalo Heights-type development with a grocery store in the Innovation District in the longer term. I suspect there would be a benefit to attract additional density around the store.
  12. I wouldn’t mind one called “The Hogan,” provided there was GFR featuring a Greek restaurant called “Hogan’s Gyros.”
