  1. I believe the buffalo bayou east renovation plan calls for at least one or two pedestrian bridges that will connect the hike and bike trails, much like the ones over Rosemont and Jackson Hill.
  2. Absolute bummer that they won't just play Moonstruck on repeat. It will be interesting to see how it competes with Space City Shows just around the corner.
  3. Looks like there is a drive-in screen set up. If Midway can do it at East River, why not here? (Forgive the terrible night time, in car photography)
  4. It seems to be Marquette's Houston MO (not that I'm complaining). Catalyst in an area of DT without many residents, 2404 Navigation, the possibly cancelled, possibly ongoing plan to build a luxury high rise off Jensen, and now this. Take advantage of Opportunity Zone funds and TIRZ funds and build bb build. Not a bad plan.
  5. After which they will likely move back over towards EaDo/East End.
  6. I would reach out to the district (no username pun intended), yes, but you may run into similar issues. I've had lights out in front of my place that are owned by East End Management District. They tell me to call Centerpoint and Ceterpoint tells me to call EEMD. I once got a person at EEMD to actually take the request and gave them the numbers on the light. I got an e-mail back the next day saying that they checked the light and it works fine. They haven't been on in about a year. Good luck!
  7. That's next level cramming. If the standard 6 townhome configuration is a six pack, then is this a half pack? If so, do they make them tallboys to account for the lack of width?
  8. Per Buffalo Bayou Partnership FB page, it is a drive-in theatre: Theatre website: https://www.moonstruckdrivein.com/
  9. Walked by today and noticed that the Canal St. facing GFR looks to have one of the orange COH Inspection stickers on it. Will try to pop over there after the workers are gone to see if it is in anyone other than Marquette's name. Also, if I recall Marquette bought the building housing Alamo Tamales back in late November as part of Phase 2 of this project. Alamo now has a new all-black paint job on the wooden portion of the building and new utilities boxes up front. Some form of remodel is underway. Update: they aren't COH inspection stickers. Just very similar looking bills.
  10. Anyone else amazed by the lack of cars in that shot?
  11. Interesting...Gin Design is going big in Eado/East End.
  12. That's exactly what I'm getting at, yes. Thanks for understanding. @ArtNsf my point was simply that "millennial" has a definition. It's not a loose term to throw out at just "youths". For reference: Millennials, also known as Generation Y (or simply Gen Y), are the demographic cohort following Generation X and preceding Generation Z. Researchers and popular media use the early 1980s as starting birth years and the mid-1990s to early 2000s as ending birth years, with 1981 to 1996 a widely accepted defining range for the generation. Most millennials are the children of baby boomers and early Gen Xers; millennials are often the parents of Generation Alpha. @rechlin, I had to look up what is past Gen Z too. Today I learned the name... I'm a millennial. I'm 30 years old, own a home, have a family, graduate degree, 401k, etc. I have nothing in common with a 15-22 year old kid. Generational labels, while they are silly as there will ALWAYS be people who don't fit the "generational mold" so to say, exist for a reason: lumping people of similar age, and thus "life experience" together. It would be ridiculous to put someone who fought in WW2 in the same generation as someone who was drafted into Vietnam. That's really all I was trying to say. It's not that I was offended by your comments, it's just that the statement that was made was inaccurate.
  13. "Privileged" and "millennial" they are not. A lot of this idiocy originated in my neighborhood (Second Ward). They used to do it up and down Canal, Commerce, and Navigation until the streets got torn up with construction (they still do, just not with as much regularity as before). There were/are other groups, but a lot of it was here. Anyway, point is, they are all teenages. 15-22, is my guess, so millennials they are not. And I've seen the homes where they come from, privileged they are not either. Douchebags, they are. Douchebaggery knows no age/socioeconomic status. So let's just leave the labels to facts.
