  1. Block 58 Redevelopment by Hines, 47-Story Office Tower

    Somebody mentioned earlier in this thread that it would be 735 feet. That person has seemingly been spot on with reports about this project so far.
  2. Memorial Park Master Plan

    Was there really a need to pave four lanes off of Memorial Drive into the Glades? It looks like an entrance to a newly built park in some far-flung master planned community.
  3. Etro Lounge leaving Montrose for Downtown in August

    Etro > Anvil. Gonna be missed.
  4. The Kirby Mansion: 15-Story High-Rise @Brazos/Gray

    36 rooms.... could make a really cool independent boutique hotel for the midtown hotspots. Lots of cities have tiny but very desirable hotels in the city center.
  5. Future International Routes Out of IAH

    Delayed due to aircraft shortage. Route will start late in the Fall/Early Winter.
  6. Cars Ruining Cities

    Boston and San Francisco are tiny. Both under 50 square miles. And both are GROWING. Sure, it's expensive to live there but it's expensive to live in the best areas of Houston too. Try buying somewhere between Downtown and Rice or Downtown and Memorial.
  7. 2132 Bissonnet

    It was a joke. Please take a chill pill.
  8. 2132 Bissonnet

    I live a few blocks away. As an inside the Looper, I take great offense to this being in the Uptown/Galleria section.
  9. Developments on the Rice University Campus

    More importantly, they fixed the fountain between Baker and Jones just in time for summer. It's my dog's favorite spot on campus other than begging for food from students... oh, and Rice Bikes!
  10. East Village Mixed-Use Development at 1201 St. Emanuel

    Museum District might be tough with the ZaZa right there but something like that in Montrose near the Menil. You'd be surprised by how many people come to Houston just for the Menil. Not enough for a Sheraton but certainly enough for a 30-50 room boutique. I'd also argue that something of this size in the Rice Village would mint money.
  11. KLM Ends 747 Service to IAH

    That 747 combo was my favorite way to get to Europe. Sad to see it go. Glad I got to fly it one last time and collect my Delft Blue House to add to the collection.
  12. Montrose Mining Company building

    It's a real shame because the building and footprint are really cool. That patio could be turned into something special, even for Montrose's trendy residents.
  13. Montrose Mining Company building

    Terrible news. That was the first gay bar I ever worked the nerve to enter. Probably should have started with JRs but they didn't take my ID!
  14. Block 58 Redevelopment by Hines, 47-Story Office Tower

    Interesting. The Southmore and Aris were both partnerships with Greystar.
  15. Houston: Potential

    Wow. It's hilarious to scroll through and then go back and look at proposal A.
