  1. Thales Alenia Space and Axiom have signed a $130 million contract to build the pressure vessels of the first two modules of Axiom's station. Thales Alenia built the pressure vessels for most of the American side of the ISS. This is the key piece of the release. At a minimum, Axiom's campus has to be ready in the first half of 2023, so we should see more movement on their buildings soon! https://www.thalesgroup.com/en/worldwide/space/press_release/thales-alenia-space-provide-first-two-pressurized-modules-axiom-space
  2. I would just go a block north to the trail. That's the most pedestrian-friendly entrance to MKT anyways.
  3. Are segments 1 and 2 necessarily linked to segment 3? Based on Mayor Turner's letter to Commissioner Ryan (which was based on community feedback) and many comments here, in general, people seem to be okay with and even supportive of just segment 3. After seeing the schematics for segments 1 and 2, I think it bulldozes way too much of the community. My personal opinion is that segment 3 moves forward and smaller improvements are made to segments 1 and 2. Hopefully TxDOT and Harris County can settle the lawsuit by moving forward with segment 3 but redesigning and significantly reducing the numbe
  4. Sharp looking facility for Intuitive Machines! Can't wait to see what Axiom's facility will look like.
  5. JSC is building a new Emergency Operations Center to withstand a Cat 5 hurricane. The facility will house primary and redundant hardware for command and control. This will be the home of the center's hurricane rideout team.
  6. https://communityimpact.com/houston/cy-fair/transportation/2021/06/15/texas-central-signs-16b-construction-contract-for-high-speed-rail-project/ $16 billion contract signed with Webuild (former Salini Impregilo) for the design and construction of Texas Central's high speed railway. No word on financing from what I've seen so this just seems to be an updated version of the $14 billion design-build contract signed a couple years ago.
  7. And the latest anchor tenant has been announced! Intuitive Machines will build a $40 million, 125,000 sf facility on a 12.5 acre lot. This will represent an expansion from their space in the HASC. It's a great to see another Houston born and grown company as anchor tenant at the spaceport. https://communityimpact.com/houston/bay-area/development/2021/06/10/breaking-intuitive-machines-expanding-in-houston-spaceport/
  8. Anyone have info on this? Currently owned by Meldi Construction. The metal building and slab has come down and out. The two houses to the south are now vacant. I'm hoping for a neighborhood bar.
  9. Here's what the facility will look like The Houston Spaceport is really becoming a hub of activity, another major tenant will be announced this month and will build a 125,000 sf facility to support 250 jobs. In addition, a new EDGE center is being planned. With the unnamed development, Axiom, and Collins, 1500 jobs will be created at the spaceport. https://communityimpact.com/houston/bay-area/development/2021/06/02/houston-spaceport-to-one-day-house-new-larger-training-facility/
  10. The Bayou Greenways 2020 project as a whole had a $220 million budget. https://www.forbes.com/sites/cynthialescalleet/2019/05/30/bayou-greenways-2020-linking-parks-adding-trails-transforming-underused-land-by-houston-waterways/?sh=6196ae175e78
  11. It appears the tuition revenue bond bill died in committee in the Texas Senate. This would've given Texas A&M, MD Anderson, and UT Health $90 million each to support construction of their buildings at TMC3 (among many other university construction projects). These buildings were planned prior to inclusion in HB 1530 so they'll still move forward using PUF money, most likely. https://capitol.texas.gov/BillLookup/History.aspx?LegSess=87R&Bill=HB1530
  12. I think the project will move forward in full. The lawsuit by the county and USDOT's pause are just lip service. Segment 3 is already starting. The section south of Midtown is on track for construction next year. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/transportation/article/Metro-set-to-spend-millions-to-make-sure-I-45-16118744.php The section for the east side of Midtown is labeled as in active procurement on TxDOT's website. https://www.txdot.gov/inside-txdot/division/debt/strategic-projects/alternative-delivery/nhhip-seg3.html
  13. The City of Seabrook is in the process of developing a plan to develop the Old Seabrook District into a "Livable Center". Looks like the consensus is either stay the same or more development. Hoping to see this develop into a more urban area. That part of town needs an urban center to give the community as a whole a gathering place instead of just endless suburbia.
  14. It appears this is still moving forward. The master plans have been approved by League City and I created a patchwork map of them. PDF has better resolution. LC_HugeDevolopment.pdf
