  1. Target filling the former Shepherd Square Randall's space. https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2020/02/28/target-to-fill-prominent-storefront-in-montrose.html
  2. https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2020/02/20/houston-developer-gets-financing-for-mixed-use.html $38m construction loan provided to Hunington Properties by Parkview Financial. Expected to be complete in mid-2021. 168 units, 20,475 sqft of ground-level retail space. Above grade parking with 305 spaces.
  3. Kendra Scott taking over the old space occupied by Kate Spade (next to Sweet Paris). Also, rumor on the street is Lululemon will be taking over two floors in the build out of the former Smith & Wollensky space (reported to be 4 or 5 floors).
  4. To be fair, JP Morgan Chase owns the corner portion of the intersection so BB&B property would be analogous to Novel River Oaks and Cadence bank on Westheimer/Willowick. The intersection will really take off once HEB is complete. The Beck's Prime lot is a little over a quarter acre and has been appraised at $1.19 million from 2016 - 2019 on HCAD.
  5. They're collected every night by organized freelancers/contractors and placed neatly on the sidewalks by morning. In my experience there's always a few wayward users who leave them where they shouldn't be, but for the most part users are conscious about parking them in the right place.
  6. I view a Nike store the same as Apple stores. They're a destination shopping experience in and of themselves that people are willing to travel for and would increase traffic for adjacent tenants. ROD has a lot of prime spaces that are vacant (see the former Tom Ford space), but they seem to have a leasing strategy/team that is struggling to compete with HV and The Galleria.
  7. The only ideas that make sense start with total demolition. I propose it be made into some sort of outdoor venue, like a large amphitheater for concerts. As an example, see the renovations for the Pacific Amphitheater at OC fairgrounds. This will add greenspace, and compliment other programming within NRG park/stadium, particularly during the Rodeo.
  8. Bold prediction.... Ocean 48 (steak 48 sister restaurant) going in here. Houston needs a Nike store though.
  9. East village is just the name of the development.
  10. I believe the owners of Finn Hall also own the conservatory. So my guess is they wanted to avoid cannibalization.
  11. If you think janky car dealers are "beautiful" or "gave it the very character that appealed to buyers" then you'll love Airline Drive!
  12. https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2020/01/14/portland-based-doughnut-chain-opens-first-houston.html
  13. Check the top left panels of the garage. Looks like they're testing out different window film. Also, the renderings indicate there will be film.
  14. https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2020/01/13/photos-luxe-randall-davis-condo-tower-opens-sales.html No real updates. As reported by Chron in November, it is set to break ground in second quarter of 2020, with a two-year construction time line.
  15. Apologies if this has already been posted. The architect firm (Powers Brown) behind many of Randall Davis' projects has had the following renderings on its website since 2015 for a mixed-use project at 800 Post Oak. http://powersbrown.com/urban-design-mixed-use/mixed-use/rd-uptown/#/
  16. Per HCAD it's Owned by "BOULEVARD RESIDENTIAL LLC" since 2009. https://arcweb.hcad.org/parcelviewer/
  17. Right, but that's a slightly different topic. I won't further derail this one.
  18. I get it, it's like referring to the entire area in Santa Ana / Costa Mesa around South Cost Plaza as "South Coast". My specific peeve is when people say something like "I'm in the galleria" or "I live in the galleria" when they mean the area not the mall. But i'm just weird like that.
  19. It's not. The article is a piece on the office project on San Felipe between Arabella and Target. Only the bolded tidbit is in reference to The Allen. In any case, a pet-peeve of mine is when people to refer to Uptown as "The Galleria" (not that you did). The Galleria is a mall, not a district, much less one that extends to the other side of 610.
  20. Exceptional BBQ. It’s the second outpost from its start out in Brenham. I’ve been to both and the Houston location is every bit as good. Truth has been on Texas Monthly’s list for years now and IMO is the best in Houston (haven’t been to corkscrew or Killen’s, which I don’t consider to be Houston).
  21. Don't fault @gene he's going off of outdated information that others found necessary to repost.
  22. Outdoor Voices, an Austin-based active-wear/recrational brand will open its Houston outpost in Height Mercantile. A job fair posting indicates it'll be open in December. https://www.outdoorvoices.com/pages/visit-us https://events.outdoorvoices.com/houstonhiringopenhouse
  23. Not any different than going through the residential area in Cottage Grove.
