  1. Looks like a clone of those apartments that just went up on the east side of 288.
  2. That seems……feasible for this site.
  3. There was a deed to the Harris County Flood Control District for about 8,000 square feet of land in May 2022 (after the prior plat), so I’m betting this replat reflects that.
  4. Have you seen Paris Hilton lately? Her plastic surgeon is Michelangelo with a scalpel. That’s a medical artist.
  5. I saw concrete trucks and utility workers on Hermann Drive out front of this site today. Gosh knows Hermann Drive could use some smoothing out in that area. I’m not sure if it would be associated with Related’s project in some way.
  6. https://therealdeal.com/texas/2022/09/30/transwesterns-stalled-houston-project-moving-forward/ “Though plans are not final, Friedkin will reportedly build an Auberge Collection of Resorts on the site featuring a hotel and residences, with Compass handling the sales.“ 🤔
  7. I was actually intending to point out how much better the Astros are. 😆 Since, 2014, we’ve had three AL pennants, 1 World Series win, and three going on four 100 win seasons.
  8. I feel like this concept was worth taking another look at it, almost 8 years later….
  9. Texas Medical Center's new biomanufacturing center to bring 100,000 jobs to Houston https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/article/Texas-Medical-Center-planning-to-build-500-acre-17457273.php “The TMC BioPort campus would be located on a piece of land near the intersection of Buffalo Speedway and Holmes Road, just west of Wildcat Golf Club, just a few miles southwest of the medical center’s main campus. The medical center is under contract to buy the land, which is currently held by multiple owners, McKeon said. He declined to identify the owners or discuss the potential sale price while negotiations are ongoing.”
  10. It takes decades for trees to grow but a rerouted sidewalk can be done in a weekend.
  11. That’s curious. She was lured in by the Deccan Development guys and sued them. My best guess would be that her attorneys have kept in touch post-foreclosure. She would only be able to recoup maybe 50 cents on the dollar from selling the raw land, so there could be an incentive to see if the Deccan guys can actually make this happen.
  12. The most Houston show I’ve ever seen on TV.
  13. Yes. Caps planned over portions of 69 (which is a “nice” term for the freeway). Also, Norcity has a primitive website for this food park: https://www.norcity.io
  14. The part of the site marked “A”—“outdoor activation coming soon.”
  15. I saw signage for Norcity in the Ion format when driving down Fannin today. It’s the northernmost lot in the district, across the street to the north of Fannin Square. Supposed to be a solar-powered food park per the signage. I’ll try to grab a photo on a less rainy day.
  16. As long as it’s not the good stuff we’re pouring out, sure. The old spine hospital on Calumet between Crawford and La Branch (just to the north of the X Houston site) is in a a similar boat, I think. My understanding is the OR’s are too small to realistically be used for much of anything other than injections, which limits the buyer pool to pain management and cosmetic.
  17. It’s still in the long term plan, for what that’s worth. I suspect the hotel will be next given Dr. Mann’s statements. I’m skeptical the tower will happen just given the difference in scale between it and other residential that’s been done in Houston and given the lack of a brand name developer (e.g. Hines, Skanska) behind it.
