  1. On Saturday I noticed an application to sell and consume alcohol on the warehouse at 2301 Dallas. The name of the applicant was Woody's Hideaway. It was posted on October 4, 2019.
  2. http://swamplot.com/frankels-polk-st-costume-shop-and-its-cold-storage-neighbor-line-up-for-mixed-use-makeovers/2018-11-05/ Mixed use. Exciting news but no idea how long this is going to take.
  3. They are still open. They just don't have any food trucks. They still make in house cheese steaks. The frustrating part is that Houston is the only city in Texas with the 100ft rule. Why are we always two steps behind?
  4. https://houstonfoodfinder.com/2018/10/04/six-years-after-grassroot-efforts-houston-diners-still-cant-sit-eat-at-a-food-truck/ What a stupid 100 ft. ordinance. Sooooo Truck yard can't have food trucks....
  5. Excuse my ignorance, but what exactly is the CBD exemption from parking minimums?
  6. This worries me about all the other lots they have in the east side, like the old Frankel's. Is there anything we can do to stop this stupid parking lot from being built? This is a serious question.
  7. http://swamplot.com/latest-plans-for-former-houston-post-building-new-entrance-block-on-st-charles-rest-of-double-block-mostly-for-parking/2018-07-20/ This is so disappointing. So basically its parking......
  8. 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.
  9. 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."
  10. 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
  11. Some more pictures from the Pitch25HTX twitter account.
  12. That is amazing. They are moving so fast.
  13. 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.
