  1. WOAH that’s incredible news.

    Right, and those cities have things that Houston will never have (natural beauty/weather or historical significance).

    If Houston ever wants to be a tourist destination it needs to have a vibrant downtown party scene like gaslamp in San Diego. It’s getting there and the city should really embrace it.
  4. This area desperately needs a casual cafe. This will do well.
  5. This area has a ways to go but with Gatlin’s new restaurant opening up next door, the other apartment building going up next to CVS and Sears finally being sold, that section of crosstimbers between Yale and shepherd is going to be totally different. The Pineforest business park has a lot of potential for redevelopment.
  6. Under contract https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/4000-N-Shepherd-Dr-Houston-TX/24925400/
  7. No, it’s a national chain: https://barcelonawinebar.com/location/knox-henderson/
  8. Probably can’t support much more retail here. But the infill is definitely synergistic with the other developments.
  9. For example, see: https://m.facebook.com/meowwolf.sf/posts/we-have-visited-houston-twice-in-the-past-few-months-and-have-completely-fallen-/1273177236145052/ and: https://hyperallergic.com/392154/interactive-art-center-meow-wolf-is-forging-a-new-business-model-for-artists/
  10. MW has been considering Houston as an expansion since 2017. At that time they also considered Austin, LA, Denver, and LV. Two of those are now open. Houston is probably a lock.
  11. My wife is obsessed with their peanut butter, and frequented the montrose window.
  12. Currently out for bid. The building was previously home to Sweet Tomatoes.
  13. There are suburban style developments all along the feeder within the inner-loop. Hell, Houston’s only natural landmark, Buffalo Bayou, is just starting to see vertical mixed use development. There’s no reason to expect any different for development outside of a few key areas.
  14. I went to Shepherd Park Draught House before the change, and it seemed like a decent neighborhood pub. The change in concept didn’t make sense to me, and the execution seemed LAZY from the outside, which is probably why I never saw many cars parked there.
  15. 1103 Waverly is the address on HCAD, recently sold but ownership info hasn’t been updated on HCAD.
  16. The whole area is a suburban style shopping center. I don’t get why anyone is surprised. Sure, they could’ve thrown up another apartment mid-rise but that wouldn’t make the area any more “walkable”.
  17. Westcreek will be next level once they/ If they ever break ground on ROD phase 2 and the equinox hotel.
  18. The La Grande Rue owner cancelled their plans. New concept announced to open this summer. https://houston.culturemap.com/news/restaurants-bars/04-14-21-dalba-craft-kitchen-cocktails-new-restaurant-garden-oaks-daut-elshani-chef-geoff-hundt/

  20. The James was great, very mixed crowd with some older residents and even families. The Ivy is the connected sister building with rents that are about 50% to 100% higher than a similar unit in the James. That said, it’s a huge building in a busy area so I wouldn’t expect quiet. It’s a quiet zone for the train so you won’t hear the horn blowing but it’ll def be annoying to get stuck behind.
  21. I would highly suggest you don’t live in either Skyhouse property. The type of people those places attract are not who most people would want to live next to or interact with. There are a few buildings nearby that are in the same price range which will be much more enjoyable. I lived off mid-lane at the James for over 3 years so my vote is ROD area over downtown.
