  1. Though I think affordable house is greatly needed. It is unbelievable how much of the affordable housing the city needs is getting stuffed into east downtown and the east end.
  2. I have seen a few people in the store at the same time. But still nothing like it is at other CVS stores. Hopefully it can maintain until at least the apartments are complete and other tenants start to move into the building. That should help a lot.
  3. We moved out prescriptions to this CVS and it was the most relaxed experience I have ever had a retail pharmacy. Most pharmacies are so busy after leaving work and the lines are so long. Many retail pharmacists complain about not having time to eat or use the bathroom because of how busy they are. There was no line and I spoke with the pharmacist and he said he always looks forward to being scheduled at this CVS. So if anyone in the area was deciding whether to move their prescriptions, do it. Trust me. Heck, if you work downtown you can easily pick up things here too. And they have a drive through window.
  4. But they got a Whole Foods. In addition to the Randalls. I would assume the highway reconstruction would put any decision by HEB to move to East Downtown on hold.
  5. I tried to do this myself when I moved to Eado in 2017. I hit the same brick wall. All I know is that Shahin Naghavi was on the board when I looked it up last, he is a real estate agent/developer for several lots in Eado. https://www.har.com/homedetail/3005-markel-dr-houston-tx-77003/13591910 https://www.har.com/homedetail/0-nagle-st-houston-tx-77003/13783858 SHAHIN NAGHAVI
  6. On Lamar and Dallas they have installed new light poles and ripped out all the grass and dug holes for trees. All around the east village development. But, the work has been dormant for at least 3 months. They did not replace any of the grass they removed, they haven't planted any trees, and the light poles aren't functional yet. It really looks bad. And to top it off, they put a light pole right in front of the Houston sign next to 8th Wonder. I thought maybe they were waiting out the colder months to plant in the spring but that has passed and now we are into summer and the hottest months of the year.
  7. https://www.scottstreetlofts.com/ Looks like the website was created in March. Anyone have details on when this is supposed to be complete and available for rent?
  8. Nice to learn the building will be mixed use. Wonder if they already have the other tenants under contract.
  9. I walked through the Shops yesterday and they are full steam ahead on all the renovations inside. I will try and snap a picture the next time I am there. Wanted to let the folks know that regularly update the forum.
  10. Maybe it is something with the buildings that aren't Befit Gym?
  11. I thought the goal of the city and the ION was to diversify Houston's economy? Seems to me that most of the partners are O&G companies.
  12. Well the exterior of 82 (which was previously all black) has been painted a bright pink color. So some work is being done at that location.
  13. They posted on their instagram story that the exterior is painted with signage. "EaDough Pastries & Provisions"
  14. https://365thingsinhouston.com/2022/03/16/saint-patricks-day-celebrations-parties-events-bars-pubs-houston-march-2022/ St. Patrick’s Day Festival at Lucky’s Pub | St. Patrick’s Day, March 17 – The EaDo venue opens again for the return of the St. Patrick’s Day party, featuring 2 stages of live music, bagpipers, food trucks and plenty of green beer across 3 city blocks. $10 and up. 6am (yep, in the morning) to 2am. So confused.
  15. https://www.houstoncitybook.com/lustre-pearl/particle-1 After opening a highly successful string of bars called Lustre Pearl in ATX — the first of which did for Austin’s Rainey Street district what Pearl Bar did for Wash Ave — Dunlap is rumored to be returning to Houston to open a Lustre Pearl outpost in EaDo. According to a filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, Lustre Pearl will open at 2016 Dallas St., across from Indianola/Miss Carousel and Truck Yard.
  16. https://www.houstoncitybook.com/lustre-pearl/?share_id=6957153 Austinites Travis Tober and brothers Brandon and Zane Hunt plan to open a Houston outpost of their popular Nickel City bar, which currently operates on 11th Street in Austin and recently expanded to Fort Worth. The dive-bar-style hangout offers a menu of reasonably priced bar food like sliders, tots, Coneys and crinkle-cut fries. It’s slated for the mixed-use development at 2910 McKinney St.
  17. There are a lot of pastry/coffee shops pretty close by to each other (Brass Tacks, Koffeteria, and EaDough). This one could benefit from the new senior apartments on Scott.
  18. I stopped by yesterday. It is well stocked and it looks like the pharmacy is up and running as well. Great addition neighborhood. Very interesting reuse of a building.
  19. All the tenants in all three buildings at the Lofts at the Ballpark will be out during the first quarter of this year. They are no longer taking new leases and stopped renewing early last year. The belief is that all three buildings will be demolished not just the one in the path of the expansion. Both sides of St. Emanuel.
  20. How much of the work was done after the last big rain event that caused widespread flooding (I think Harvey)?
