  1. How did construction affect the businesses on Harrisburg or on Scott street? The original red line construction was rushed, so there was greater impact on the businesses, but I thought that Metro went through a lot of effort to avoid it with the Green/Purple/Northlines. Maybe they will reroute people on to Center street during the construction
  2. Which section of downtown is this in? I'm curious because I had never seen anything that digressive in south downtown (where I lived for 6 years) or on the main street corridor
  3. A longer line means either more trains for the same frequency or less frequency for the same number of trains. Extending only one line would work if they don't want to put more trains on one of the lines, but want to keep the frequencies the same
  4. For the purpose of the actual trains, I wonder which lines will be extended to Heights, or if both purple and green trains will go all the way down. Does anyone know the history of Hughes manor?
  5. That one construction worker has been busy
  6. So do those trees have to rely on the light filtering through the windows from ground level, or are they putting in some grow lights into the atrium?
  7. As both IronTiger and I noted in the next few posts, the 5 post mark is parking lot not parking garage. Additionally, I wonder if there's more levels past 8000
  8. Downtown Starbucks locations: 1100 Louisiana (5 am - 5:30 pm, M-F) In the springhill/courtyard by marriott in the old Humble building (5:30 am - 6 pm M-F, 5:30 am - 7 pm Sat, 5 am - 3 pm Sun) In the Hilton Americas (6 am - 8 pm, everyday) There's one in GRB, but I don't know if its normally accessible if there's not event going on 3rd floor in Shops at Houston Center (5:30 am - 6 pm M-F, 9 am - 1 pm Sat) 4th floor in Shops at Houston Center (5:30 am - 6 pm M-F) Tunnels in one shell plaza (5:30 am - 5 pm M-F) Tunnels in Penzoil (5 am - 5 pm M-F) Tunnels Chase tower (5:30 am - 5 pm M-F) UH-Downtown (7 am - 7:30 pm M-R, 7 am - 5 pm F, 8 am - 5 pm sat) So there's only 2 that are open all week, and only 2 more that are open on Saturday Interesting thing is that there isn't a single Starbucks between Texas ave and buffalo bayou, and only 3/10 of them are in the tunnels
  9. Need a new "food hall" that is just Dunkin, Starbucks, Shipleys, and Krispy Kreme
  10. Emancipation and McGowen might be a good location; its 2 major roads, as well as on a frequent bus line
  11. The grocery store on cambridge really was covering for a bunch of places that won't have a store within 1 mi, even after the new HEB opens. There's a bunch of places that for sure need something to plop down right in the middle of those gaps
  12. So frequent buses count as a transit corridor, not just light rail or BRT?
  13. Maybe they are going to make a building suddenly appear out of thin air, and are worried about collateral damage
