  1. Ditto. I lived in Westmoreland for 26 years, and there's a sense of stability and serenity that seems unique to historic districts.
  2. "nearing completion" and "almost complete" can take a long, long time.
  3. Hmm... a place to hang your hand-washables to dry?
  4. Defense Language Institute? Daily Light Integral? Dual Language Immersion? Deep Learning Institute? I give up.

    Reve At Montrose

    The rendering is as seen from Montrose. It has not been updated to show the drive in structure added for the medical facility.
  6. New white cladding is going up on the west side of the building.
  7. Thanks for the update. Somehow news of the murder at Bayou City, its closure and reopening as the short-lived Mary's Alibi seems to have been overlooked at HAIF. A well-run bar with a courteous staff, adequate security, and reasonably priced drinks should do well here (and would be a refreshing change).
  8. Just noticed that yellow neon (?) lighting has been added to accentuate the angles - really makes this building stand out at night. (Sorry, can't locate my camera.)
  9. "A monkey on your back" is slang for an addiction. Perhaps he meant "chip on your shoulder".
  10. Two portable signs have gone up with the message that McGowen will be closed between Main and Travis Streets on 6/29 -6/30 and 7/6 -7/7 Might this be either to complete the small park on the north side of McGowen Station, or to finish the pads and install the buildings for restaurants?
  11. Ordered a pizza (to go) last weekend and was very satisfied with both the quality and price.
