  1. The mayor put a pause on something that was for all intents an purposes a closed issue, done deal back in February. Pretty sure the pause wouldn’t have happened without the combination of their change.org petition, and the letters of opposition these people sent to the city. The opposition has 1,683 signatures and the proponents have 898 currently. It’s easy enough to sign even if it feels like change.org has never had any effect on anything.
  2. https://www.change.org/p/support-a-safer-11th-street-in-the-heights a petition went live today for those who support the 11th St redesign
  3. @wilcal shared some information about this bridge on a different thread:
  4. Definitely! It’s been planned for a long time. It’s even part of the Houston bike plan. But with no timeline or funding. We’re working to tell the city it’s time to fund it and build it
  5. https://atotbridges.wordpress.com For those who don’t have an Instagram
  6. Time to build more bridges connecting MKT and WOB https://instagram.com/ataleoftwobridges?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=
  7. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again. Radom is a machine. Reinventing this city one thoughtful development at a time
  8. Community Impact reported fitness facility Mayweather Boxing will be opening up at this development as well. Build out for La La Land Kind Cafe is almost complete. Ran into some of the workers taking pictures around the trail and they told me it should be ready to open in 3-4 weeks. Central City Co-Op (currently on 420 E 20th St) is closing its doors this Sunday and moving to an undisclosed location. I’m going to type into existence that they are moving to M-K-T (based on absolutely nothing).
  9. Remarkable. Hoping for some retail here as well though. This angle of the rendering looks all offices. If I didn’t know any better I’d say it looks like a building for a college campus and I’m here for it
  10. Looks like they have 3 spaces open for Leasing. The renderings in the first pic in addition to the plant wall facing north seem like there will be significant upgrades to change the look and feel and turn this into a more modern desirable destination. I walk my dog around this building a lot. It’s an interesting location with a lot of nature behind it. Honestly they need to have a rooftop garden with dining here. Those views would be very very impressive
  11. Great to hear about 501 N Shepherd Dr. Would love to see a link or any plans for redevelopment. I guess 2025 is not that far off and right on time for the redevelopment of the entire Shepherd/Durham corridor. I ride by this warehouse often and think it would be excellent space for more development. On a similar note, and this have been mentioned here before, I know M-K-T will expand eastward too. Triten calls it "Swift", and they will redevelop the warehouses on 621 Waverly St. They were built in 1909 and formerly served as meat packing and distribution facility as Freedmen Distributors. Hoping for some industrial lofts on the 4-5-story building and maybe a small grocer. Once these are complete, this will create a semi-contiguous 1.5 mile stretch of pedestrian/bike oriented activity here that will be a new crown jewel for the Heights and the city. Now if they can go ahead and build pedestrian/bike bridge across Patterson and/or Rutland then we will be in business. If anybody has any links or intel on more specific plans for either 501 N Shepherd or 621 Waverly, I know most everyone here would love to see.
