  1. Wow, these are some really hot takes on interior decorating. Got any more for us? 🙃
  2. Not good. I’d also be surprised if any Japanese firms were doing any big movements on international projects- the yen is ridiculously weak right now (145JPY to 1USD- it’s normally 100:1 or so). if a company like Brightline could pick it up, that could be our last hope to see this one get momentum (albeit it would likely use different technology)
  3. They’re saying completion/open by December, right? That’s what I saw last on I think the DRA site. The detailing on the cafe is just adorable, I love it! I’m loving all the fun colors they’ve chosen. I’m interested in their “tree palette”. It looks like they’ve got a few live oaks, maybe some post oaks, what appear to be sycamores, and at least one redbud (the best tree obviously!).
  4. A youtube video about the rooftop farm portion of POST:
  5. Avenida del Kinder it is, then. That’s the power of compromise 😎
  6. Real talk, has anyone here ever been ticketed for cycling on the sidewalks? 🤨 If I had to choose between cycling in mixed traffic or cycling on sidewalks…it’s sidewalks for me, laws be damned. I’m sure a sympathetic HAIFer would be so kind as to help bail me out hahaha 😁
  7. I used to be in team “Tear down pierce” until I got to go to POST and spend time on the rooftop. It really gives a unique perspective besides simply being on the ground (or being inside an office building). I’m now on “Team Skypark” because I think it would bring something totally unique to Houston, and I feel like it’s a very “Houston” thing to do. If there were some way to utilize the areas underneath Pierce as well (maybe somehow put in some retail spaces?) that would be really cool. Or even cut holes into the structure to allow natural light through (or both?!?) so it’s less creepy to walk under, that’d make it feel less like a barrier between Downtown and Midtown imho. (You could also expand the sidewalks, too! Win
  8. By the way, per their September meeting, Metro is now laying the groundwork to extend the Silver Line into Gulfton. It doesn’t say exactly how far it’ll go- I’m sure they’re hammering out details right now. Sounds like they’re targeting 2026 for opening the extension METRO Meeting PDF- starts on page 6 They’re shooting for having the LPA by December/January
  9. I always felt like P&R locations would be good places to encourage some sort of mixed use developments. It could prove to be extremely attractive for not just people who would live there, but the daily commuters who spend time there, too. I think putting structured parking in the P&R lots (maybe with some kind of GFR?) could be really smart, rather than relying on surface lots alone- they could really get a lot of $$$ from projects like that. it’d be cool if we saw CityCenter-esque developments around the park and rides. It could be cool to be coming home from work, then maybe decide to go out and grab a bite to eat, or go to a dry cleaners, walk around a bit, then head home (whether directly adjacent to it or wherever you drove in from). Or someone could come meet you for dinner. I could see this working at somewhere like the TMC transit center for sure. I believe they’re floating ideas like this for the Wheeler TC redesign. A scaled-down implementation may even work in the further-flung P&R locations.
  10. Such a great vantage point of downtown!! Nice shot!
  11. I saw this video posted recently to Youtube: MARTA (Atlanta) video covering the Boulevard Project thought it was interesting. Nothing we didn’t already know, but kinda neat to see.
  12. Holy wow this is absolutely massive. TMC3 was already going to create a ton of jobs wasn’t it? This is just going to be nuts
  13. You know, helicopter pad isn’t one of the amenities I’d’ve expected at that price point. (These are going for like 1-2MM right?)
  14. Love the way the gabion walls turned out. Overall, just a really nice-looking building imo
