  1. Glad you had fun in Downtown. It's a great neighborhood in the evenings whatever your interests. My advice to anyone riding these downtown is to mind the one-way nature of the street-grid, and keep your head on a swivel for the cars (I see them daily) going the wrong way down streets - they cannot see the traffic lights (none are pointed towards wrong-way drivers) and they absolutely blow through intersections at full speed. Have fun and be safe!
  2. I have definitely had to fight monsters made by a sketchy corporation with a name like that in a building like that in a video game.
  3. Speaking anecdotally - seeing a significant uptick in move-ins in my condo building downtown. Some are rentals, but others are sales.
  4. This bar may not end up being my scene, but have high hopes for it moving the center of gravity for entertainment in this part of town. Especially for pre-post Astros game, I think they will draw big crowds considering how much cheaper and plentiful the parking is over here. Already lots of folks park and take the easy walk from here.
  5. I continue to be made crazy by the blank concrete exterior of that parking garage. Throw a mural on it or something, anything FFS.
  6. Note that they are opening this weekend. https://www.instagram.com/p/CQd-qUgFt6n/
  7. I was told by a shy source that the next two are Finn Hall and Flying Saucer.
  8. I am pleased to report that the Jagermeister machines are being installed.
  9. Have we seen this rendering before? JPMorgan Chase name returns to Houston's tallest office tower
  10. This space formerly housed Tiki bar Kanaloa and Bitterman's Market Square Bar & Grill. It will now be part of a chain, and build out has been in progress for a couple weeks based on my observations. A CBD Restaurant With a ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Connection Will Open in Houston
  11. Still unclear if "open air drug market right out your front door!" is to be included as an amenity on the listing brochure.
  12. They tryin to step up to Abu Omar Halal's new spot, right up the block. https://preview.houstonchronicle.com/dining/new-halal-guys-set-for-downtown-houston-in-early-15736419
  13. Noticed they were putting furniture inside yesterday.
  14. Great location for another residential high-rise.
  15. Installing some pretty stout pilings. On the left, in between the preserved cement cross-beams, they have added reinforcing cables. You can kind of see them.
  16. Update: Late October move in. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/life/home/design/article/AIA-Houston-Architecture-Center-new-HQ-harvey-15652866.php?utm_campaign=CMS Sharing Tools (Premium)&utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=referral#photo-20118156
  17. I have been given permission to share the following: This applies to both buildings on the block.
  18. This would be a great use of this space. Right in the heart of the Justice Center (court-houses, jury assembly, etc) - pretty important and impactful place to make a statement about lynching and the fraught history of justice.
