  1. Yes. Yes. Yes. Brisket, onion, and mushroom sandwich with garlic white cheddar cheese. Best sandwich in McNairy County. Hands down. Healthy grocery options. Premade meals. Bakery. Essential oils.… View the full article
  2. Do not stay here. Just. Don't. Do. It. Unkept. Sticky bathroom floor. Slippery tub. Sloppy staff. Easily inconvenienced staff. Dirty walls. Chipped paint everywhere. Broken curtains. Party hotel.… View the full article
  3. 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.)
  4. bought my two-day pass! super excited about the event and getting to be in the location in light of the recent development news.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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

  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. Are there any sidewalks left?! This setback we are allowing is ridiculous. Less floor plate higher buildings please.
  14. Although I agree with most of your post, over the last ten years many of us have grown to respect the feedback of various haif posters. I do not mind including them in LinkedIn contacts should I require someone with their talents in my office or need services or input from their particular industry. I would be selective with who I connected with, yes. Would I eliminate all possibilities. ..no.
  15. isn't park and ride "mass transit"? there are three or four very successful park and rides and the woodlands is building a transit center right smack in the middle of town center...the last proposed location is a surface lot near the pavilion at six pines and lake robbins....on the pavilion side.
  16. See Discovery Green and Market Square. ..other developers would scramble to build on the perimeter and attach to it...it would become yet another symbol of the greening of Houston. An example that we do not waste what is still usable.
  17. Something from scratch is less feasible than repurposed.....or is it? Guess it depends.
  18. 2016 main and st. joseph's and metro could open up to it on multpile levels. It becomes a hub of pedestrian connectivity for this side of town.
  19. I was against this,initially, but am having some serious creative ideas if it were to be repurposed. You're doubling usable public space by repurposing the structure. Underneath? Covered regional 6 day/wk farmer's market with cafés and food trucks....put lipstick on that pig and it is a double decker spine of community activity that JOINS downtown and midtown. It becomes a uniter not a divider...
