  1. lol - $305k crammed into a small lot in a high crime area as Cullen and Idaho is a hot corner. Nothing affordable about that and the website looks like it’s a master planner community when it ain’t by any means someone is coming in to make a quick buck.
  2. Holiday Inn Express is coming and a shopping strip called shops at summer park - certainly not the outlet mall lol but its something
  3. hope so - they bulldozed those homes decades ago - but they got to acquire more land from what I see
  4. and Celebration Station sits vacant knowing it could be open but folks don't want to reopen as the demographics ain't what it used to be out there
  5. Rice U is sure putting their hands on all these other communities trying to gentrify but they have no impact in West U
  6. had relatives living off OST and Beekman and now you see nothing- Bulldozed those homes for nothing - Spur 5 is decades away

Fiesta and maybe a private grocer like a Pyburns are the only grocers who'll set up shop in minority areas like a Su
  12. That's where I draw the line. Lamar's success is due to taking kids from other HISD areas.

HISD has turned a blind eye towards their football tactics as they normally are their only hope in football which isn't surprising since they get to raid the other areas. HISD teams play on turf so why practice all week on grass and then have to shift focus to turf? You can practice on a turf field in a rain and maintain it better than a grass field. who else has i
  13. old post office I think - thought the club was going lol was there a taco bell on gasmer and chimney rock in the 1980s?
