    The Boulevard Project

    2 people might be an exaggeration but it's not that wide when walking between trees.

    The Boulevard Project

    Is anybody else disappointed with the width of the sidewalks? For a such a major project on a signature boulevard, you would think they would build a sidewalk that could accommodate more than 2 people walking side by side. I guess it's an improvement over what was there before...

    Commuter Rail in Houston

    Metro moves to revive potential commuter rail line to Missouri City A commuter rail line between Missouri City and the Texas Medical Center ­- comatose for nearly four years - has leapt back to life, even if the dollars needed to build it remain elusive. Metropolitan Transit Authority board members on Thursday approved a resolution authorizing transit officials to "place" the project in the "Federal Transit Administration process" and look for ways to pay for it. When officials essentially placed the project on inactive status in September 2012 after spending $1 million on feasibility studies, it was estimated to cost about $400 million to build the rail line.... http://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/transportation/article/Metro-moves-to-revive-potential-commuter-rail-8401902.php?cmpid=twitter-premium
  11. If I were a betting man, I would put my money on this being an Omni. Most other convention hotels and mid level hotels are already in the area or have a proprety downtown except the Omni who only has 2 other properties in Houston (galleria area and energy corridor). Also from what I remember they were in the running for the second convention center hotel but were not selected so there was interest in downtown Houston.
