  1. Well you can blame that on what we all have been trained to believe from these "urbanist" ideas usually from following these forums on what we are supposed to think good urban development means. I guess a similar situation would be how disappointed every one was when they put a Forever 21 and a Payless Shoe Source inside the Galleria Mall that time. I'd like to see a Frenchy's or something go in as much as the next guy. True, my mind was thinking from the viewpoint that a common "hood" spot may not be welcome by those with money right next to a brand new 5 star convention hotel, luxury apartments, and nice luxury dining like The Grove, XOCTL, and Grotto.
  2. I haven't a clue what this post is talking about. It sounds like jibberish.
  3. Look i'm not a professional, nor am I going to try to pretend like I am one. But my one question for you is, in a city where many different projects are happening in various parts of the city; midtown, downtown, uptown, rice village, medical center, memorial city, upper kirby, etc. Why does the city only have to be limited to midtown and eado in terms of focus. They each have their own management distrcits ie midtown management district, and east end management district. The better connection problem you speak of is already happening with the opening of the North rail Line being the first step. I could be wrong, but i think the improvements/expansions UHD made a few years ago was also apart of that first step. I'm thinking they knew that area would possibly become something when the openings of the rail line finally came through. Those pedestrian/bike plans will be an easy addition after that.

  5. The survey is supposedly closed now. And what's up with that link to where we could view the results? I keep getting an error message?
  6. It's really hard to get excited about a skate park. Houston seems big on filling empty spaces with parks these days. Big whoopti whoo!
  7. Hell Yeah! Now that's what i'm talking about! I love 7eleven. It's about damn time!!!!
  8. On the contrary my illustrious friend... This post was actually the most "on topic" post in a while.
  9. i hope it this project hasn't been scrapped. It's frustrating because it was supposed to begin last fall (2011) and still no word of anything. I'm wondering if this might be going the way of the High Street project. I remember years ago they were saying that the High Street development was going to add new apartments or condos which would cause the Westcreek apartments to be razed, Well? Here we are 5 years later and still nothing. It would be awesome if this RS happens, and along with the new "Central park" concept nearby. It would be a true urban paradise.
  10. Whatever happened to those golden plans to hang bright large signs on H/P? That seemed like it would help people see the establishment better. I never realized how enclosed this place is. It would've been a better idea to have it facing out toward the streets rather than having loading docks facing the street. That was stupid on the developer's part. All I got to say is, I hope Houston19514s right and this doesn't take anything away from what's there currently
  11. seriously? what is taking so long just to build this walk bridge? It seems there's alot of street improvements and freeway overpass construction taking less time than this. It's not even going to really enhance the look of the area.
  12. I am in love with the new Wells Fargo lighting. I think a few more buildings should support the WF building and light their buildings up creatively as well. Just as long as they don't bring back the beige white christmas lights like someone C2H stated on here earlier. That was so uncreative and lame looking.
