  1. The new Bahai Temple in Santiago is innovative and represents the tenets of the Bahai faith, oneness....all paths lead to the same place. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=524QKW2HmLM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRT61YB0hSQ (TED Talk on building sacred spaces; highlights the Bahai Temple Santiago at the end.)
  2. bought my two-day pass! super excited about the event and getting to be in the location in light of the recent development news.
  3. Taking a break from Will & Grace reruns to clean this up. Thanks...deleting everything off topic and issuing warnings for anyone who continues off topic after my post.
  4. My guess is that Chevron saw the cheap oil days coming. Cheap oil means increased downstream opportunities. Chevron builds new refineries to capitalize on cheap oil and gas (temporarily redirecting capital spending). Hence, delay in non-income producing sunk cost projects.
  5. a pierce elevated park would increase real estate values along the perimeter and buildings would connect with it, weaving it into the pedestrian fabric of the city. https://www.bisnow.com/archives/newsletter/new-york/1668-how-the-high-line-has-changed-manhattan-part-1
  6. for one, it's on 2.5 acres in a prime area. if the house were fully restored on .5 acres, you might have an argument.
  7. I'm sorry, but this trend of lego-esque residential is getting old fast. The block of a pedestal parking garage with no continuity of vertical lines and BROWN colors; looks clunky, dated, uninspired.
  8. It's cheaply built and lacks good planning and design.
  9. Dear Preservationist Friends, a restored MacKie & Kamrath home on 2.56 acres is on the market. TThe owners have restored the home with great sensitivity to the original design and intend to sell to a preservation-minded buyer. They are the second owners and the first owner was Leon Lee himself (architect at Kamrath). It is a once in a lifetime home and very rare (sadly) for Houston. Let's help preserve this beauty by getting the word out to the right kind of buyers. http://search.har.co...ITE71920497.htm

  11. Bwahahahaha...you had me going for a millisecond.
  12. Go to their website!! It may as well have been Weingarten. Banal. Beige. Suburban. Blech....right up there with the Howard Hughes Corporation. Major let down.
  13. Do tell. Six Pines and what crossroad?
  14. Are there any sidewalks left?! This setback we are allowing is ridiculous. Less floor plate higher buildings please.
