  1. 4001 Main St. - Isabella Condominiums

    Looks like it's no longer on Surge homes website https://www.surgehomes.com/developments
  2. Battlesteins building purchased

    Why not both? More infrastructure towards the back, but have the front where the windows are be more guest rooms

    If only they could build a cut-and-cover subway while they are rebuilding westheimer, but I know that would shut down the whole road for months
  4. That's 2.6 cars per unit. Seems excessive - even if you assume 2 cars per every unit, you only need 582 spots, so there's 176 extra spots for the retail component. Doesn't that seem like a lot?

    I think the green line route was chosen for speed over ridership - connecting Hobby to downtown via rail is possible, but no one will ever ride it if it takes an hour and a half to get there. What is more disappointing is that there is no new service in that corner at all, no BOOST or BRT. The older plan had a lot more BOOST corridors

    Fannin south seems pretty popular as a park and ride for the south end of the red line, so a park and ride at the other end seems appropriate From what I can tell of the "Signature bus", it will start at the downtown TC, go down to midtown and take the HOV lane on 59 to Edloe, where it will exit and go to Westheimer and continue the trip from there

    Metro had a workshop yesterday and a boarding meeting today. Here is the download with the new "Moving Forward Plan A Plus" plan http://ridemetro.granicus.com/MetaViewer.php?view_id=5&clip_id=1747&meta_id=39956 Big changes are - new BRT line along Gessner from West Little York all the way to Missouri City - new BRT line up to IAH - extending both the Purple and the Green lines to Hobby - extending the Red line to North Shepherd - less "BOOST" corridors, but more focused on East-West travel - Purple/Green line extension to the city courthouses - no more red line extension to the airport, which never really made sense to me anyway - a new "signature bus service" from downtown to uptown - 2 way HOV lane from midtown to edloe on 59
  8. At least it's not separated from westheimer by parking Still a pretty big surface lot
  9. The Boulevard Project

    Described bus rapid transit to a friend. His reaction was "why aren't all buses like that?"
  10. Holiday Inn Express North Main

    It might be some sort of paleolithic temple
  11. Or take 45 to 10 to 59 south - I believe that was the official detour to go north while that ramp was closed
  12. 708 / 712 Main Renovation - The Jones on Main

    I have yet to go, but I am excited for more food options downtown, including ice cream
  13. A new ballpark in Arlington

    Sort of my point. The Athletics have announced a new stadium before, but the Rangers are currently building theirs
  14. Lower Heights District

    Well the big difference is no parking lots
  15. Why is Houston so dirty?

    I think I saw that episode of Mad Men
