  3. How about some direct service to Vietnam and India? Feel like this market could support that. I suppose Emirates and Qatar handle much of that demand now....
  4. I think they are starting service to DFW soon...I have not heard of expansion to IAH. I suppose it is possible as it seems the international carriers are no longer going either or with DFW and IAH and are picking both with Emirates, Korean and Qatar recent examples....
  5. this is a beautiful station...hopefully it gets used!
  6. I noticed this yesterday as well with the new metro pop numbers and was curious as to the change. I could not find any official announcement from the census. I think the county population figures may be impacting this as well. Will have to look to see if Montgomery has recently passed Brazoria in population?
  7. Post Oak Blvd on its way to becoming one of the premier avenues in the country. Excited time for Houston to finally see projects go from paper to pavement...
  8. Great job on the videos! really enjoyed...now lets get this university line off the ground!
  9. So in this article.. http://sports.espn.go.com/espnmag/story?id=3576248 Rick Reilly is listing as what he perceives as the most important sports franchises in the major cities. Here is what he says about Houston:.. "HOUSTON Yesterday. Everything in Houston was better in the old days
  10. Another profile today looking at the top prep hoops cities in the country, hou included.. http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/recruiting/features/cityhigh
  11. So Amtrak may not be a component of the intermodal? It would make sense but I guess the additonal investment would be hard to get given the ridership? I would love to have an ACELA style setup here between HOU-DAL-AUS-SA..but given the emphasis on huge highways and the automobile in Tex.. I don't see it happening, although I did hear a possible rail component in Rick Perry's transcorridor plan..
  12. Seeing those pictures I can hardly contain my excitement about this project up here in NYC!! I can't wait to go check it out in person when I'm down for the holidays. I really hope as has been discussed many times on this forum, that this along with the several other downtown projects establish critical mass for a consistent pedestrian environment and a vibrant urban atmosphere particularly at night after work lets out and in the weekends. It really improves many facets of life to at least have that option in our city(we'll still have plenty of spread out areas and that is fine as well) and will improve this Great City into another tier of world class...
  13. There is something similar being contstructed here in the NY/NJ area next to Giants Stadium... http://www.meadowlandsxanadu.com/static/node1304.jsp
