Everything posted by BEES?!

  1. Metro posted the PDF for the May 4th virtual meeting.
  2. I’ve seen that they’re offering them. They aren’t too expensive, are they? I may have to give one a go sometime!
  3. Beautiful shots! I especially like the second one- was that taken from the bayou trails?
  4. r/Houston is a trashfire of stupid takes. Much of reddit is in general, but this is extra-true for local subreddits lol
  5. Woaaah! This is fantastic news! Can’t wait to see what they’ll do!
  6. I’m totally for this. I’ve also never had an issue with toll roads/toll lanes, either (provided there were alternatives for people that prefer not to pay, like feeders or non-tolled lanes). I think it’s a great use of surplus money and will really help in building out the trail network around town.
  7. I like the render, it looks really good. Very classic-looking building. It’d be neat if we could get some more of these!
  8. This’ll be an eclectic marriage of styles, for sure. I’m digging the East Asian rooftiles on that wall.
  9. Nice renders. It’s definitely a unique building. I think the only one here in Houston it immediately reminds me of is one of the HQs on 10 in the Energy Corridor,. (Dunno which one though off the top of my head. Maybe it’s BP?)
  10. Honestly, you could count me in too, if you want someone to help out with things here and there. This project is so cool, and is super useful when I want to show someone a new project going up.
  11. Wow, Galleria area is gonna have a little building boom. This project, M-Square (not sure when that’s going up though), plus the 3(?) residential towers…am I missing anything else! There’ll be quite a lot of towers popping up here! 🙌
  12. I guess we’ll know for sure in June what the cost and scheduling estimates look like- at least that’s what I took away from the PDF. I think I like the below-grade BRT concept, too. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s the most exensive of the three alternatives, though.
  13. So is it looking like Meow Wolf is going in here?
  14. Yup. I said in the thread for this, but it’s really not a bad walk at all from there to Midtown. It’d be nice to see more residential on the south side of DT.
  15. I believe it’s damaged and was leaking into the garage it was built on…I may be wrong. So there’ll have to be quite a bit of structural work on the garage underneath. I know the planned rehab of the site was grouped alongside the Bagby Street redo in the Master Plan PDF, but there hasn’t been a whole lot else said about it. All I could find was this KHOU article from 2019, claiming there is a funding issue.
  16. So this will be I guess technically “mixed-income” housing? (Since looking at the presentation it sounds like some will be market rate) It’s nice they’ll be saving those buildings and they’ll be getting new life as housing.
  17. Nice cars in that rendering. Got some real ballers working there
  18. There are some renderings of a few different concepts for the Wheeler Transit Center that were shown during the recent Capital & Strategic Planning Committee meeting. The section on Wheeler Transit Center starts from page 33 of the PDF here.
  19. Wow, I guess I missed this project. It’s really cool! Great for the residents of the area
  20. I love how the taller (apartment?) building looks. Kinda getting mid-century vibes from it. I like the brick choice a lot
  21. What are some of your favorite sushi spots, HAIFers? I’m always looking to try new places, as sushi is my favorite meal, lol. Some of the ones I’ve tried (in no particular order): Ka Sushi (Heights)- Pretty good, not outrageously expensive. They had some weird and fun creative rolls. Uchi (Montrose)- Of course! It was really good, I’d definitely go back, provided someone else is footing the bill :P. They had great non-sushi items, too. Very vegetarian/vegan friendly and they’ll do a veg omakase for you. They were super accommodating of my husband’s allergies, too. Tobiuo (Katy)- Great sushi at reasonable prices (compared to Something more expensive like Uchi). If you’re in the area, I highly recommend stopping by. These guys are also behind Kanau in Midtown (I’ve yet to go there. I think they’re more sashimi-focused) and the upcoming Money Cat in Upper Kirby. Blue Sushi Sake Grill (will be in MKT Heights development)- this isn’t open yet, but I had them when I was in Dallas. They have great sushi, and lots of creative vegetarian/vegan options- moreso than some places I’ve been to. A lot of times I just wind up going to Kura, lol, which is fine, but I also wanna try more “fancy” places.
  22. I think having a heavily programmed park in this prt of Downtown makes a lot of sense. They obviously want to liven up the street level since it’s honestly kinda lifeless right now over there. Having things that people will want/need to use day in and day out, like a playground for the kids, a dog run for the people living nearby, and a little cafe where people can grab a drink and sit, all make a lot of sense. If this were a more happening part of town, I could see the value in a less programmed space, maybe something more natural, or just a nice big lawn.
