  1. I'm thrilled to see this progress, but astounded that it will take until the end of 2027.
  2. I think that Samsung is basically asking for not just a tax break, but to have all local taxes rescinded.
  3. So am I really. The design references the international style buildings on the University of St Thomas campus.
  4. What on earth are "curated" condos? What does that even mean? And how can it be "iconic" before it is even built? More than the usual amount of marketing blather here. Surprised it's not "artisanal".
  5. I went there with a friend once who wanted to meet Moby!
  6. At the end of the day I just don't think the Dome would ever be successful for "mixed use". I'm not aware of any stadium that has been successfully retrofitted that way. I would leave the frame and let it serve as a picnic or park area.
  7. #15 on University Blvd was in business until the very end of Weingartens.
  8. I suspect Postmodernism is stuck in that uncomfortable place - too old to be stylish, yet too new to seem quaint and charming. Probably in a few years it will begin to start to be appreciated more.
  9. In the pictures it does look tacked on, like it was found somewhere else and just shoved up against the Chase Tower.
  10. There was briefly rail service from the downtown Amtrak station to Galveston in the 1990s. Unfortunately, it seems that demand wasn't there since it didn't last too long.
  11. It's interesting. Low ceiling heights have also been given as an explanation for why the old Holiday/Days Inn could not be renovated, and the Sheraton-Lincoln before that. It must be that people in the 1960s were tiny, compared to the giants that walk among us today.
