  1. I'm not a government contractor or a city planner, however I have been privy to the cost estimate for a brand new 4 way traffic signal install without crosswalk signals and that was about $250k. I have no perspective on crosswalk signal costs for municipalities, but when we looked into them for a private neighborhood, they were available for <$10k each (push button with lighted signal, not the countdown type you commonly see on city streets). So from my perspective, $1M seems excessive for what they have outlined.
  2. Close to a million dollars for a new traffic light posts/arms, paint on the ground, and walk signals? Government bloat at it's best.
  3. I love the fact they are thinking about walkability, but this only applies to Shepherd/Durham from 10-610 in the heights. I can't seem to find anything with any plans for 10-Memorial Dr
  4. Seems like this link isn't related to this portion of Shepherd Dr, but the other link addresses the area in question. I haven't been down this portion of Shepherd/Durham in 3 months, but construction definitely didn't start last spring...
  5. I don't want to think about how a Chick-fil-A and the lines they create would work there. That restaurant across the street already backs up Shepherd some nights.
  6. Which construction are you referring to here? Shepherd Dr reconstruction? Will this corner be modified in a way that necessitated the demo? Btw I'm happy to see it go, just more curious on how exactly it's related to Shepherd Dr construction.
  7. Good to know, round 3 of anticipation for the new owners plans...
  8. It has been on the market for almost a year now. No price listed last I looked.
  9. You know, I didnt zoom in enough to see the detail of all the spaces. I did see Salon Lofts, however I assumed that was a description vs an actual tenant. Sorry @ahkelly
  10. So, that's a no then? :) I know there is space, curious to see if there is any information on who, if any, had leased.
  11. I'll just chalk this one up as another inner loop missed oppty. There are so many I think im numb to it. Access to this center really impacts how often I go/will go. I'll be curious if the Home Depot ends up a sh%thole like the one on 610 or nice like the one on Katy Fwy.
  12. just a general comment, but this kind of sums up why Houston is so frustrating for me. How is Washington Ave not a designated walkable space?
  13. Happy to see this is still going in as planned. Been looking forward to it.
  14. This was from the Buffalo Heights thread in going up.
