  1. From the looks of it there's only 22 (19 if you don't count the ones by the freeway and bayou) full surface lots left without a development planned, and 63 partial surface lots left. A good amount of these partial surface lots are barely there, I really shouldn't even count them. The amount of full surface lots have decreased drastically since 2014, especially with new proposals/developments counted for. While the partial lots are slowly but surely going away. Here's the mock up map: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1SfQnSn30iCB2wBUy3pIMydD4jAyz8MZl&usp=sharing
  2. Great resource for population density, but I do have one problem with it. That is the age, while 5 years may not seem like a lot of time for population statistics, for a city growing like Houston it is. I suspect a good amount of inner loop Houston has had a sizable increase in population density. For example, Downtown Houston went from only 3800 in 2013, to 8000 in 2018. according to: https://www.khou.com/article/news/local/downtown-houston-experiencing-population-boom/285-549842840 While it's estimated (headcannon) there's around 11k people living in Downtown right now. Anyway wonder if they have an updated map?

Auxiliary Services website link (Has quite a few retail plans for UH Main, such as the food truck park) : https://uh.edu/af-auxiliary-services/uh-dining-vision-plan/retail-dining-vision/#plan22
  4. Imagine damn near 200+k people in Downtown at all times. Not only would the sidewalks be full, but the tunnels would be too. Honestly would probably be the most pedestrian activity in the world, all within a 1.7 square mile area.
  5. Come on lets get a developer that doubles that original 16 story plan. I'm ready for some more high-rises, this part of Houston is ripe for more construction right now.
  6. Source: https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2019/11/18/austin-developer-plans-multifamily-project-near.html This will also be Oden Hughes' first project inside the loop. The property was also valued at $4.9 million. Area of development:
  7. The cases have been posted Bunker Hill Apartments Height: 297' Work Schedule: 10/10/2019 - 10/20/2021 Case: case: https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external/searchAction.jsp?action=displayOECase&oeCaseID=418293267&row=12 Crane # 1 Height: 233' Work Schedule: 9/28/2019 - 10/28/2020 Case: https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external/searchAction.jsp?action=displayOECase&oeCaseID=416317138&row=19 Crane # 2 Height: 373' Work Schedule: 9/07/2019 - 11/07/2020 Case: https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external/searchAction.jsp?action=displayOECase&oeCaseID=416317231&row=18 This big boy is going up pretty fast!
  8. I know it's just an older garage compared to the new one they're digging rn
  9. Woah that new garage is going to be massive. Also like what they're doing with classrooms/studios on the older garage; looking pretty good. looking into the future this campus is going to be unrecognizable. Especially when they build the law center, moody redevelopment, tech annex demo/construction, etc. Going to be an insane next decade for UH.
  10. I'm glad there's more infill going up, but it feels like this is only one part of the project. The design for the garage is pretty good compared to what's usually built. I just have feeling there should be more to this block, but this might just be phase 1 of what's coming. I'm gonna wait for more information, but i'm hoping it's not just a garage. Albeit it's a nice garage though, only second to lyric in design.
  11. That's a big boy excavator right there , time to to start diggin! On other thoughts, wonder what the timeline is? This developer is extremely secretive from the looks of it, but maybe there's a chance they're going to reveal some information soon. Honestly excited this project is even starting.

  13. vocal public is whoever goes, and votes at the meetings I suppose.
  14. hmm wonder how this is going to affect the variance request. Does the vocal public support this project more than it doesn't? Hoping this doesn't destroy/delay the plan, and we can get this project underway sooner than later.
