  1. Or maybe it is the abercrombie building. I can't remember.
  2. And the hbj could probably explain better that texas childrens west tower connects every floor to the 1954 building they are talking about which is why tch may want it. It is impossible to tell when you leave tch and go to St Lukes at that spot. In fact the McDonalds is right there too.
  3. I have been seeing some national articles that more expansion is coming but it seems vegas is the front runner with Seattle too, because the Toyota center lease only allows Alexander to own it and he hasn't put his name in the hat this time. Anyone know whether he will?
  4. I recall reading, that is what the plan is, street cafes and street facing stuff.
  5. Does anyone know anything about Affiliated bank for a refi? Are they good? Reputable? Etc... Thanks!
  6. Used to live in the Montrose and at one point our community association (Hyde Park) talked to the owner about their current plans for the specs strip center, since it seemed mostly vacant and tenents were moving out. This was back before the recession... I want to say 2006 and at that time their plan was to not renew leases as they expired, which is why the blockbuster went away years ago before the more recent blockbuster mass closings. Once all tenents were gone, they were going to tear the whole center down and build a high/mid rise with street retail and a look that fit in the area.
  7. The thought crossed my mind when I read the chron.com article this morning about Chevron buying the second former Enron building and the YMCA land... Have there been any rumors that Chevron is moving more people here or consolidating somehow? Any chance they would move their HQ from California here?
  8. I am not an architect or business person that knows about developing land and costs, but someone please tell me why they could not take that large chunk of land and create a suburban style master planned community, that is in town. i would think they could build lots of houses and make lots of money. People would love to live in town with suburban amenities.
  9. Why do you keep posting casino as if casino gambling was legal in Texas. Sure that is a great idea and would be perfect building for a casino, but that is crazy to post it. Should they build a casino in hopes that it will pass someday? Another great idea would be a huge brothel or green house to grow pot, but neither is legal either.
  10. I always wondered how others felt about Lance. personally he annoyed me too and I will tell you why shortly and for some of the same reasons Rich Lord is annoying. I was very dssapopinted that John left. He was the best in the morning and a true professional that carried the show. He was funny and knew his stuff. Mark Van Demere (sp?) is too. Basically the only 2 on 610 that I wanted to see go were Lance and Rich. Here is why Lance and Rich both do this and it is rude not to mention confusing to the caller and listeners... Host says OK, so and so you are on the air, Lance and Rich almo
  11. Well it appears they are looking for a head baker: http://houston.craigslist.org/fbh/336255671.html Also, a Houston store was mentioned when they opened the Dallas store:http://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/stories/2007/03/19/daily40.html?from_rss=1 No location mentioned yet, but I would guess Uptown or inside the loop.
  12. I guess that is Dunlavey. No wonder I never found anything on the search. Thanks for the info.
  13. What are they building at Mandell and Richmond nect to the Dog park? Large support pillars are in place now. I did a search and did not find any topics on this project.
  14. Vertigo, you are thinking of the cafeteria across the street on top of the ten ten garage. I think it was called Travis Place. That garage is owned by El Paso and they closed the food court and turned it into their trading floor. You are right that cafeteria/food court was great and the water features they had were very nice and peacful at lunch time.
  15. Thats it. Thanks for the responses to my question on the old Days Inn building. I wish someone would do something with it.
