  1. https://communityimpact.com/houston/heights-river-oaks-montrose/business/2022/09/22/a-2nd-cup-coffee-shop-to-relocate-from-heights-announces-second-location-coming-to-third-ward/ 2nd cup confirmed they are moving to Lindale Park, and opening a second location in the third ward
  2. Yeah I really wanted this place to do well, but I was disappointed every time I went there. Really slow service, . food and high prices :/
  3. I was really disappointed when they did a bunch of work on the main drainage point in Spott's park (brand new concrete culvert and pipe it looked like), only for all the water to pool NEXT to the drain and cover up the path to the bayou.
  4. Yeah TBH I'm a little sad that I will still be able to see it haha. Meanwhile I definitely won't be able to see the astrodome anymore, which I was able to on a clear day before.
  5. There’s some work going on in the lot south of this building (digging up a portion of the parking lot). Not sure if these are related.
  6. It’s part of phase 1, but the building hasn’t been announced. Some folks here have commented that it would be a good sized lot for a grocery store 😇
  7. Yeah I had the same thought. How about before/after of 59/69 being covered by a highway cap?
  8. Hey how else is the home renovation industrial complex supposed to make that $$?
  9. Looks like they have reached the first step in the building (on the right side) Gives some perspective on how tall this will be!! We're only ~1/3 of the total height so far.
  10. One comment re: rail line. the NHHIP project will be taking over all the space northwest of the tracks (where the warehouse and gas station are currently located).
  11. This drives me crazy -- my office building has a revolving door and then a small swinging door next to it and everyone always avoids the revolving door.
  12. You gotta be fast to beat @hindesky :)
  13. I have some work experience in this area. Often companies will shut down turbines when migrations are passing through (it’s typically well documented when this is happening, you can even see them on weather radar there are so many). Also there are capabilities to have camera recognition of birds in the vicinity and automatically shut down turbines. This is used a lot to reduce eagle strikes as it is random and typically only a single bird. Sonic deterrents (as mentioned above) are also used in some situations. Wind companies have a lot of experience with endangered bat species as well, voluntarily stopping turbines during summer nights when they are flying. Suffice to say, bird strikes are a lot less of an issue than some like to make it out to be.
  14. There is a temporary bike lane there at the moment -- orange traffic barriers to separate it from the road. They added it b/c the section on Lamar is closed during the construction work.
  15. https://www.us.jll.com/en/investorcenter/land/12-acre-infill-oz-development-opportunity-with-adaptive-reuse-buildings-houston-houston-tx-unitedstates Still showing as 'under contract' -- I was curious if there would be any movement with the recent announcement of the WKM property redevelopment down the street. Nothing that I can see though.
  16. Love love love this! Are these the same folks who bought the pita pal plant and the properties along canal?
  17. Finally added a bike rack! It was frustrating to take the very nice Polk bike path to this new development and then have to lock my bike to the handicapped parking sign….
