  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 almost half the time, chime in and start talking about another subject and interupt with some rant and to me makes the flow of the show choppy and agrevating. Also, to those that think Lance was so knowledgable, if you really listened to what he said he never said anything. He would go on these long winded rants about something and keep repeating the same thing over and over and not say anything. Reminded me of a politician. Talk so much that you forget what the question was and the point. He would also say, a source told me... I think that was an exageration most of the time, because it would rarely come true. Things he would say were classic red flags for someone that did not know what they were talking about and were full of it. I see it all the time at work and in personal life. The old saying that if you throw enough ____ against the wall some of it will stick. That was him. Anytime there was a subject that I was especially interested in or knew something about, which is usually the sooners, I would say to myself that is just not true. Then in a few days actual facts would come out and he would be dead wrong. But in his world life goes on and he keeps making stupid predictions and irrational tatements with nothing to back it up ("except secret sources/contacts") or no recourse when he (secret sources) are wrong. Lance would go on and on for minutes at a time and not let John speak, then John would get his chance and say something actually with meat. Lance is not good at radio! I quit listening when John left. Now I listen again.
  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.
