  1. For Containers, I have no doubt NYC & LA blow Houston out of the water. Often LA and Long Beach are lumped together, NYC with Port Elizabeth, NJ. Same for Houston, since some of the Terminals are in Baytown, Deer Park, Pasadena, La Porte, Texas City. We export and import a hell of a lot more Chemicals (Petrochemicals), than anything. I've also heard the Mississippi River is the "busiest" port in the World, so I'm sure it's however you can skew or pick the data to benefit the claim.
  2. The Potholes probably do the same. Commerce & Canal are warzones.
  3. The trains have been blaring all night long for decades. At least that's what long time residences say when people complain on NextDoor.
  4. Forget the freeway, have you heard the trains horns all night long?
  5. Phew. We've waited so long... for this? A beautiful garden & plaza with the most underwhelming worship center. La Luz Del Mundo or even the Chong Hua Sheng Mu Holy Palace would look better here.
  6. Great news for the neighborhood, which I hope retains it's edge in the future. I drove down Westheimer to Sweetgreen from Highland Village. Even though Montrose "aint what it use to be", it's still certainly Montrose. It's eclectic, buzzy, weird, artsy-fartsy, and very much still LGBT. It's just a different experience now. I'm sure the same will remain for the East End. Very curious of what a culturally insensitive development would be? I searched on google but didn't find anything.
  7. Urb, why have you stopped updating the Houston city thread on SSP? I always enjoy the responses from out of towners. Particularly those comparing our suburban Hotels to the Montmarte in Paris.
  8. It's a beautiful garden, but the structure is huge disappointment.
  9. It's going up in every major city (Robbery & Gun Violence).. https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2021/02/america-saw-a-historic-rise-in-murders-in-2020-why.html https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/fbi-report-crime-shows-decline-violent-crime-rate-third-consecutive-year https://www.npr.org/2021/01/06/953254623/massive-1-year-rise-in-homicide-rates-collided-with-the-pandemic-in-2020 And According to this, the Chief of Police said they were hesitant to arrest lower level crimes due to COVID-19, not because of the "weak-kneed progressives". https://www.khou.com/article/news/cri
  10. I agree - just hope there is no weeping over the closing of the temporary use from the neighborhood. The cries about the strip center on Westheimer are getting to me.
  11. There was really an opportunity to create an entrance to the bayou and walkway, even minimalistic like this with some simple landscaping.
  12. That's a really big shame. I was hoping for a nice restaurant here to admire the street and nearby buildings after dark. But look at the Allen Center, despite the reno, it's still a fortress with one entry to the restaurant after business hours.
  13. It also mentions podium parking at 5 stories. I'm interested to see how this will look. It's a huge lot for just 50 units. Fingers crossed for the green lawn still making it in the final product.
