  1. Thoughts of a pedestrian/light-rail only stretch of Elgin/Westheimer between 59 and Shepherd... ... a boy can dream
  2. Counterpoint, this is because suits are expensive and uncomfortable, and are and always have been dumb.
  3. Houston is getting a Bjarke Ingels??? That's HUGE. I'm so excited for that.
  4. I had no idea that's what those were called or where they came from.
  5. In my book, the Texas HSR is vastly more necessary and valuable as an example than it will be as a direct benefit to the travelers of Texas, though the benefits there are huge as well. We desperately need a modern high speed rail SOMEWHERE in this country to get built and show people it can be successful, and that might as well be here in Texas.

  9. There were some sections with bricks missing, and they've also knocked out a lot of holes for windows. Looks like they're well on their way now to getting the brickwork patched up as well as adding brand new brick wall sections along Emancipation. Starting to look good.
  10. What I've found online indicates it should only be about 20 feet shy of 609 Main when it's done. They may top out on usable floors soon, but I think we still have quite a bit more visual height to go.
