  1. The Allegiance Bank sign is up on the building. Also, the drive-thru is almost finish. Sorry, I didn't take a picture as I was driving.
  2. The latest lawsuit had a setback in court yesterday. I agree with HOUTEX, these projects should be smaller in scope and more spread out throughout the city. The Heights had a similar project and they fought it and won. It upsets me the East End has become a dumping ground for affordable housing. If it is great for the community, why is River Oaks not full of these projects. Politicos take advantage because this neighborhood is full of working class, who sometimes lack the political engagement, and a middle class that is not able to attend meetings at 10am or 3pm during a weekday (as someelse pointed above). https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/article/Judge-blocks-renewed-effort-to-halt-East-End-15238914.php
  3. Last I heard, the Buffalo Bayou Partnership was suing the project because something related to sidewalks.
  4. I disagree with some of your complaints stated in your original post, but I agree 100% on your comment about schools. In my experience, people that call schools "sketchy" in this area is just people that they do not want their kids to go to school with mostly brown and blacks kids. I am not here shame anyone, to each their own. I learned a long time ago you cannot force integration onto people. I love the diversity and fairness of Houston overall. But if there one area we are still stuck in the 1950's segregation mentality is school zoning. For K-12 I attended mostly schools with other brown people. All schools I attended had a lot of economic shortages, yet full of supportive staff and eager students. I was fortunate enough to get financial aid to attend a private university, mostly white, to experience the other side. Many of my suburban classmates in college experienced what you stated above. High drug use (Zanax and other prescribed stuff) and they also had a high rate of depression and anxiety. I don't want my kids to get used to overdosing on whatever trendy drug is popular at the "better" school districts or to become depress when things don't go their way or face obstacles. Mrs. and I are products of inner-city public schools and plan for our kids to do the same.
  5. My gut feeling is that even if this place opens, it will not stay in business for too long. There is a lot great food in the area for a reasonable price. Corkys is overprice and not even authentic Texas BBQ. Sad to say this about a business coming to my hood.
  6. It is my understanding that phase 1 will open in 2020 and phase 2 will open in 2021.
  7. Alamo Tamales, which is at the corner of this development, is set to close down by the end of the year. Sad news for the tamal lovers out there like myself. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/entertainment/restaurants-bars/article/Alamo-Tamale-Taco-on-Navigation-to-close-its-doors-14837996.php PS: there is another location, but 15 minutes away from this location.

  9. Anyone knows about a coffee shop at 2603 Navigation? I am assuming it is a new place coming up. http://www.oso.coffee/
