  1. Without parking requirements, they're more likely to get a small coffee shop on a corner With parking requirements, they're more likely to get a starbucks on a pad site surrounded by parking and a drive through

    Skyline update

    Are you talking about the lines behind the old post office? Because Amtrak still runs 6 trains a week through there
  3. It looks like a bombed out ruin in a warzone
  4. People keep wanting the park idea, so how about they just keep the structure intact and make it an indoor park? Scrap off the paint on the plexiglass on the roof, replant the special grass strand, and boom all season park
  5. Having both sides makes for a better development opportunity. It could make that station be more than just a parking shuttle

    Fannin Station

    https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Fannin+South/9425+Fannin+St,+Houston,+TX+77045/@29.6703706,-95.4030568,17z/data=!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x8640eaa8cbf65921:0x72e298b3d4ce4882!2m2!1d-95.402837!2d29.6735677!1m5!1m1!1s0x8640eab034155d6f:0x49cddf41f3c7b948!2m2!1d-95.402059!2d29.666362!3e2 This one is only a 1/2 mile walk to Fannin South, but right now that area is not a great walk: there are trees but they aren't big enough to provide shade, the side walk is 3' wide, you have 2 cross two large intersections, and Fannin itself is 4 lanes wide and people go a decent clip down it
  7. This would be hilarious as a standalone house FYI this isn't 1818 Fannin (which would be downtown, where the Amegy bank is) but at the end of Fannin https://www.google.com/maps/place/Orleans+at+Fannin+Station/@29.6608081,-95.4071235,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x9f2c323aef70dc3a!8m2!3d29.6608081!4d-95.4071235 I'm not sure where the number comes from, but it's a 20 minute walk to Fannin South from here
  8. Maybe a midrise, but it's also only on the rail line - there's nothing to walk to
  9. It also will have one of the few stretches of sidewalk on Ardmore
  10. Not if we had high speed evacuation trains to Dallas
  11. I don't think it would work for this restaurant, but it would be cool to have a sign that had those distance markers on it
  12. Can I designate where my 30 spaces are, and keep them reserved?
  13. Why does that first floor plans have 2 full bathrooms for 1 bedroom? If they had made that front one a half bath, there would have been more storage space. Also, why put the bathroom at the corner as opposed to the bedroom? Weird choices
