  1. I wonder if this is what they are meaning by a vertical power center:http://uacdc.uark.edu/work/the-vertical-power-center-prototype-development
  2. In 1980 there were around 10,000 billboards. Recently, in 2008 almost 900 were removed; 67 in 2010 and 2011 which leaves around 1,500 in which most are within city limits. This year there has been talks of a new deal that is going to see the removal of 140 more. So all in all, there has an 85% reduction in billboards across the city. http://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/City-eyes-deals-on-billboard-eyesores-6013365.php

  6. From the article: "Part of the agreement is that Metro can negotiate to buy some of the property back if it decides to build a rail line in the future. The toll road would not consume the entire width, leaving room for rail."
  7. PanAm and TWA both flew into IAH. As for (terminated) international airlines: Cayman Airways China Airlines Pakistan International Airlines South African Airways There are probably more, but those are some off the top of my head. Edit: You just beat me too it KinkaidAlum!
