  1. From the post above yours it looks like Oso's @hectorgarciahtx is also rockin' the "HTX".
  2. Brand new sidewalks and some driveways have been poured on the entire perimeter and it's looking great.
  3. That's incredible news. Boxpark is awesome and if this turns into something remotely similar it'll be a great draw for the neighborhood.
  4. Do you know if they're meant to be office/co-working spaces or small-scale retail popups (akin to Boxpark in London) or something else entirely?
  5. "Preliminary information reveals a development program for the Kim Hung Rising that includes a mix of studio condo units, a 170 room Hotel, and an assortment of ground floor and second floor retail uses anchored by a grocery store." A grocery store!
  6. I'm really excited about this - it looks a lot like the Heights Mercantile development on 7th St. between Yale and Heights and I hope it brings in similar businesses (especially Local Foods). Either way, it will be very nice to have this easily accessible by bike or foot from Eastwood and parts of Second Ward to serve as an activity hub for the neighborhood and nudge some more development in the available empty warehouses further west along McKinney. With The Plant right up the street at Harrisburg and East End Backyard just down the street at Lamar, Sampson is also becoming quite the corridor
  7. I am 100% agreement; plenty of street parking around there and we already have too much of the city's space dedicated to cars. I did neglect to mention that their patio looks solid. She mentioned that they also have a canopy that shades it, but it was taken down in advance of the threat of Laura.
  8. This place is indeed open. We stopped in for a coffee this morning since Giant Leap is temporarily unavailable until they move into their new space at the Plant and nothing else is open at 7am (Xela opens at 8, Coral Sword at 9, and Bohemeo's is still temporarily closed). Good coffee, friendly service, lots of workspaces (including private booths) and plenty of parking.
  9. Someone on Nextdoor posted photos of construction activity on this triangular lot at the corner of Telephone and Henninger and according to those working on the site, it's going to be a coffee shop. I drove past yesterday (and failed to get photos - sorry), and it looks like there's potential for a great patio/beer garden with some shipping container structures in addition to the main building, kind of like Retrospect next to Axelrad. Coral Sword's just a few blocks up Telephone, but this new spot could be great if they focus on patio atmosphere.
  10. This morning I saw armadillos going in next to repainted lanes on Cullen south of Polk.
  11. More great news for this development: https://houston.culturemap.com/news/restaurants-bars/08-17-20-roostar-vietnamese-grill-restaurant-new-location-second-ward-east-end-navigation-place-linda-ronnie-nguyen/
