  1. East Downtown Promenade

    There are crews constantly working on several streets between Emancipation and St. Emanuel from Dallas to McKinney. These roads are filled with potholes so I am really glad the are taking care of this. Plus this area is so busy because of East Village. Putting the TIRZ money to use.
  2. New mixed use building at Polk & Dowling in East Downtown?

    From Nextdoor: "I just spoke to Mr. Clay Mealy with Lovett Commercial, one of the agents on the listing brochure for this property. He confirmed to me that there is currently no tenant for the building. He said that they had talked to Sprouts a while back but nothing came of it, and have presented the plans to other grocers. He said the asbestos abatement was something the owner knows has to be done anyway, so they are just getting it over with. The site plan appears to anticipate some sort of parking structure on Charles street so I imagine that is what the variance request is for. Any commercial use at that location will have parking issues so a parking garage would be a necessity. He was very nice and I thanked him for his continued efforts in presenting the property to potential tenants so that we can have some more options on the east side."

    Just saw this yesterday.
  4. Hotel RL & Residences @ 1005 St Emanuel Street

    So they went from starting in 2018 to starting in 2020 and not being done until 2023. That freaking sucks.
  5. Hotel RL & Residences @ 1005 St Emanuel Street

    This is the last lot on St. Emanuel between Polk and Texas that sits idle. I wish they would actually start some type of work on it.
  6. East Village Mixed-Use Development at 1201 St. Emanuel

    Have been to the truck yard a few times. Such a great addition to the area. The last article talks about the upcoming space in Phase 2 that Agricole Hospitality is working on. https://www.khou.com/article/news/entertainment-news/fun-funky-truck-yard-opens-near-downtown/285-548945461 http://abc13.com/food/outdoor-bar-truck-yard-has-put-the-wheels-in-motion-in-downtown-houston/3476080/ https://www.chron.com/life/food/article/truck-yard-eado-houston-ferris-wheel-food-truck-12893947.php https://www.msn.com/en-us/foodanddrink/foodnews/agricole-hospitality-taps-chef-paul-lewis-for-its-enormous-eado-project/ar-AAxhgVQ

    That is amazing. They are moving so fast.
  9. Does anyone have an idea of what the city is doing with the ramps near I45/59 off of St. Josephs Pkwy? Can someone point me to where I can find this information out. They have been working nonstop for months and it looks like they are putting up two new ramps next to 45.
  10. Proposed development at 2617 McKinney

    Excuse my ignorance, but my looking at the plat map you can't tell what it is going to be correct?
  11. Polk Street Commerce

    There were building permits posted on the glass of the empty middle space. I didn't have my phone or I would have taken a picture. It said "Upscale Retail Cleaners" or "Upscale Cleaners Retail." I hadn't had my morning coffee yet so I cant remember which one lol
  12. New mixed use building at Polk & Dowling in East Downtown?

    http://www.khou.com/article/news/local/east-end-kroger-management-admits-to-rodent-problem/285-530515356 This area needs a another grocery store in the worst way. There has been a lot of activity here the last few weeks. The attached photo was taken from next door. The truck is Arc Abatement, and from a quick google search, they specialize in asbestos abatement. They also have had crews taking off all of the graffiti on the emancipation side of the building. Not sure what any of this means, but some activity is better than none.
  13. East Village Mixed-Use Development at 1201 St. Emanuel

    Stopped by last night. A lot larger inside than I expected. Food and service was great.
  14. Mid Main — Mixed-Use Development for Midtown (3600 Main)

    Had dinner last night at Kula Revolving Sushi Bar. It was really good and the place was packed. Such a different experience, felt like I was in another country.
  15. 2920 Lamar St.

    The lot in between Dallas and Lamar on Paige St had a full crew breaking down the structures on site yesterday. It used to be the Green Hill Recycling Management Center. Any word on what we should expect?
