  1. I don't know, the original deed restrictions had this rule "no part of the property should be conveyed to, owned by, or leased to, used or occupied by any person other than of the White or Caucasian race, except that owner's servants..." That was amended in 2002. TWO THOUSAND AND TWO. So, luckily, changes can happen.
  2. Wow. Horrible news. They did quite a bit of work and then it all stopped and the house has just been rotting in the elements. A real shame. Same guy owns this house that donated to the baseball facility at UH that isn't finished because he couldn't pay his donation. I'm guessing he was hit hard with the O&G downturn.
  3. I was born on Candlewood right off of Tanglewood Blvd. I didn't read the deed restrictions as a kid but I'd be very surprised if the deed restrictions haven't been ignored over the years. I remember people being pissed when the first two story house was built but now the monster mcmansions are everywhere and there are very identifiable third stories "hiding" as gables or pitched roofs. I get that this will be much taller and multi-family but just saying. Today's Tanglewood looks NOTHING like the original version.
  4. Sadly, ET's service is no longer bookable. Looks like it was pulled even before it began.
  5. During daylight hours there is really nowhere in Houston I feel unsafe. Baltimore is a different animal. I've had uber drivers refuse to take me to certain parts of town in Baltimore. Some of it was also unfamiliarity and the differences in the built out environment, but Baltimore is one of the few places I've turned a corner and been afraid. So much abandonment and abject poverty. It's really sad.
  6. Any more news on the home robbery? I find it odd that gang banging guys with only drug convictions in their past were able to pull off a major art heist and not trip an alarm or be spotted on any camera... on River Oaks Blvd at Del Monte where everything is on camera. Something smells off...
  7. Ethiopian is loaded in the system. Looks to start with 3 times per week in early July but quickly moving to 4 times a week using a 788 with a IAH-LFW-ADD routing. Departures from IAH will be 1-4-6-7.
  8. I am not against parking garages but I sure do wish we had some design guidelines. This thing is an eyesore. Period. It doesn't have to be. We just accept it because developers in this town are free to go cheap.
  9. Nope. f Amazon. As a small business owner it pisses me off as more and more of the multi billion dollar companies actually end up getting returns and paying NOTHING. It's about time the people wake up to what has been happening.
  10. Follow the money. He's got ties to Joel Kotkin and the Manhattan Institute. Gattis' new think-tank does as well. That means funding from sources like the Koch Brothers and other dark money groups.
  11. I'd like it more if it had replaced a parking lot. And while I appreciate the lobby, I am not a fan of the tunnels at all so any attempt to make them more appealing does nothing for me.
  12. Nice looking project but it has definitely shrunk from the original 25 floors. However, I'd rather have this than another box.
  13. It ain't a secret any more. Roger that? What did Mitch know and when did he know it? Mueller is about to blow a hole in many on the Right. Roger is just another piece of the Russian puzzle. Mitch has ties to dirty NRA money that may or may not have been laundered from Russians. Is that maybe why he's an obstructionist?
  14. Our nations is F'ed. Checks and balances are not working. Things are going to get dire quickly for millions of people. For the people at the very bottom who rely on essential services, things already are. Call Mitch. This is on him IMHO. He took an oath and he's violating it. The question is, why? I think it isn't just for the conservative judges he's ramming through. There's a dirty secret that might be exposed soon and he's not just protecting Trump, he's protecting the GOP and potentially himself from exposure. This hostage situation (that's what it is) is on him.
  15. Rumblings of a big expansion of the Hilton on campus. It currently has 84 rooms. Expansion will add 68 rooms and 8 suites in a "new tower." Not sure if this will be added on to the current building (vertical expansion) or a new "tower" but if it is a vertical expansion, this might become the tallest on campus or at least rival the Moody twins.
