  1. I think I don't mind the façade. The interior is not my taste though.
  2. Looks like they have 10-11 floors to go. I drove up 288 and through town on 45 and could see it peaking out now.
  3. That bathtub view is about to be a whole lot different when the senior living tower goes up next year.
  4. Even if the design isn't as great as it once was, this is going to look awesome from 288.
  5. Man that is a letdown. You can barely see them from your view let alone the ground. I have been watching from my office and was worried when the metal frames weren't too big. At least the rest of the tower didn't change from the renders.
  6. Still waiting for the fins on top to really make this pop. It looks unfinished.
  7. Some people are going to book the hotel online and just seeing the photos they provide and the location. They will have no clue about the construction. So they will likely still get business but then have guests complain and ask for a comped night or something. I once stayed at the Double Tree near downtown Dallas over Thanksgiving. I was thinking I got a great deal then learned hundreds of Kuwaiti college students were staying there while colleges were closed over the holidays. It was like being in South Padre for spring break. So much partying and noise. I got a free night out of it because it was so hard to sleep.
  8. I went to a ping pong bar in Denver a few years back. It was packed and pretty fun. I figured one would show up here eventually.
  9. According to The Hay Merchant's Facrbook page the bar is closing. Massive loss to the craft beer scene. The Resturnat next door is moving to Regent. So, you have probably heard the big news…After 10 years at 1100 Westheimer, we will be departing our current location—home of Georgia James and Hay Merchant—and Georgia James will relocate to Regent Square HTX. With this new change, the obvious question that comes up is "what will happen to Hay Merchant?" While the OG Hay Merchant is closing, we are going to do our very best to keep the Hay Merchant spirit alive throughout the company. While we are unsure if we will be able to open a new location, we do want to continue having weekly trivia nights, hosting watch parties & sporting events, as well offering a place to gather with friends to enjoy a good cocktail or beer. Additionally, you’ll still be able to get a damn good burger at the upcoming Underbelly Burger that will be opening at the Houston Farmer’s Market soon. Trust us, we love Hay Merchant just as much as you do. We are committed to preserving the elements that make Hay Merchant so special, and we will continue to share updates as we know more about what this transition looks like. Until then, we have until the end of the year to celebrate this amazing place. We plan to go out with a bang, and we hope you will join us!
  10. People sure do love to complain when something affects them directly. Lane closures have existed forever and now it matters to them. Yeah it is super annoying and I used to commute on these roads and it will back up. But no worse than what the Post Road bus project did and countless others in the area. It is part of construction and growth. Not only that but the streets within Tanglewood have been closed off and on for months as they just got repaved.
  11. My understanding is that R&D in the medical field is pretty low in Houston. If anything it is pretty cancer focuses. But to get to the level of say Boston, we need biotech and such to really take off here. I am hoping this will help with that. Though they have schools like MIT around there so not sure if Houston will ever get into robotics to that degree.
  12. Kind of funny they blocked a 22-story building to end up with a 33-story building
  13. Sure but CenterPoint isn't going to want to pay to do that. Plus all the connections would have to be routed to the new location as well. Anything is possible but I say it getting moved will probably never happen.
