  1. I wonder what will occupy the vacant bar space next door (former Bar Victor) location.
  2. You do know there was a Planet Hollywood inside the Galleria from 1997-2000ish, right?
  3. Same here. That’s why I bought a house in the area just north of the 59/Montrose bridge I see this area developing quite a bit over the coming years. Heck, the new Glassell School/ Cloud Gate is a 10-minute walk from my house and neither were there when I bought my house two years ago.
  4. These are my thoughts exactly!! I also have no idea why, but maybe it has something to do with the long-standing NIMBY sentiment from the nearby Ashby high rise fiasco. I know that’s a bit west of the Museum District, but maybe it scared developers enough?
  5. This. My wife and I actually swung by there on Saturday. We were sitting on the patio, right next to the metal fence, when a homeless man on a bicycle yelled an expletive as he threw a full beer can towards the fence. It landed two feet from my wife, luckily on the the street-facing side of the fence.
  6. Building a parking garage, eh? That might explain why 4316 Jack St and 4320 Jack St are listed for sale at $999,999 each...
  7. You’re right, it is very “Montrose”
  8. Here’s the marketing material from Cushman & Wakefield for this lot. Given that the two rumored mid-rise office projects never took off on this lot over the past decade, coupled with the new Broadstone Museum District condos going up right across the bridge, I’m will to bet this gets developed into a similar luxury condo mid-rise/high rise. It’ll be very well positioned to the new Ion tech center as well, Thoughts?
  9. I wonder why they're not selling well. That little pocket is very charming IMO.
  10. Seems like too prime a location for a mechanic shop.
  11. Don't forget that Montrose is only a short walk away. For example, the area near Ono Poke, the new Lotti Dotti bar (formerly known as Brooklyn Athletic Club), and the Timberline Fitness under construction on Jack St & Richmond are all only a short 5-10 minute walk from The Ion (AND they're in Montrose).
  12. I particularly like that area of Montrose for its close proximity to the Museum District. The area around the Glassell School is practically a 10-minute walk and you can jog over to the Rice loop in 5-10 minutes. I think it’ll get some significant polish once this road construction is complete, as well as once the area around the spur gets cleaned up. Timberline Fitness is in the process of opening a multi-story gym on Jack St and a new bar is opening soon in the old Brooklyn Athletic Club space. I wonder what will ever come of that lot where the empty African Art Cente
  13. Why do you think that area of Montrose has lagged behind the rest of the neighborhood? Would you say that it’s the cheapest part of Montrose from a price per square foot of land perspective?
  14. Interesting perspective. So you think Montrose will be like the Westwood of LA?
  15. I wonder how the tech innovation hub they’re constructing at the old Sears will change this part of Montrose. I’m seeing a lot of lots for sale for a $1m right near there (for example, on Jack St next to the former Brooklyn Athletic Club), so I’m not sure if speculators are anticipating a huge pop soon.
  16. While it has been there for some time, it was a Luke’s Hamburgers in the 90s if I recall correctly.
  17. Just noticed a variance request sign in front of Montrose Automotive Care at 4720 Montrose Blvd. Anyone know what this is for? Has the land been sold to a developer?
  18. Also picked up by Eater: https://houston.eater.com/2019/3/20/18274677/lotti-dotti-opening-april
  19. More info here: https://houston.craigslist.org/fbh/d/houston-lotti-dotti-hiring-all-positions/6845393658.html
  20. Thanks for the update! Where did you hear the news? I’m hoping this new business can put some pressure on the city to clean up the nearby homeless encampment on the 59 S on-ramp (which is less than 500 feet from this property).
