  1. Ok, thanks. I just know that Dat Dog first mentioned this location back in early 2018, so I wonder how serious the early 2020 date is now. I'm fine with everything going on in the Rice Village falling under this thread.....updates from the various projects seem to come in slow drips anyways. But you keep doing you.....I applaud your very persistent efforts on a lot of these threads.
  2. Has anyone heard any updates on the proposed Dat Dog build out? On the corner lot right next to Mendocino Farms. I recall the liquor license being approved a while back, but still no activity on the site. I think it would be great to see that stretch of outdoor patios on Morningside continue.
  3. So no planned interaction with the bayou or bike path? As is, I have a hard time seeing a casual visitor to Market Square making the (short) walk to this site.........not a very pedestrian friendly environment.
  4. I'd be curious to see the car traffic counts on this stretch of Main St. It would be great to see Main St. turned into a pedestrian/bike promenade from the Ion all the way to McGowan. i don't think it would effect too many drivers. I know the Drewery folks had pitched something like this last year......hadn't heard any updates.
  5. For all the new mid and high rises going up in this part of the Museum District, the restaurant/bar/coffee offerings are plenty slim. With Chelsea Market closing down, it's only gotten slimmer. Hopefully this project can be a catalyst for more dining options to complement the beautiful museums and churches and esplanades in the area.
  6. If I recall, this remodel is going to be part of the new Soccer Shots facility. Maybe an academy and housing for some of their staff? I remember reading about it last year
  7. The current road reconstruction in this area seems to be dragging along very slowly.......I feel bad for these new bars/restaurants opening up. Sidewalks and roads are a mess right now, but hopefully it will be over before summer.
  8. Walked around the Glassell building this past weekend......and the greenery/vines on the sloped part of the building does not appear to be thriving. Well, it mostly looks dead. I'm guessing they may want to re-plant for spring.
  9. Very exciting news. I'd love to see them turn 1/2 this block of Times Blvd into some kind of pedestrian mall/green space. Something like that and boutique hotel will continue to push the Rice Village in an exciting direction.
  10. FWIW, this approach does work in Australia. In every major city in Australia, it's not uncommon to find Coles and Woolworths within a few hundred feet of each other.
  11. There is a construction fence up around the entire old Gorgeous Gael property on Morningside and active remodeling going on.......food hall or not, I'm very curious to see what they do with this space. It'd be great to see them re-purpose the adjacent parking lots for some public shared use or patio space.
  12. Do the plans still include a pedestrian bridge over Allen Pkwy? I think that would be a cool feature.
  13. They need to carve out more green space wherever possible. Or create a pedestrian mall by converting one of the shorter blocks. The upgrades thus far have been underwhelming.
  14. This is very helpful. It looks like they are planning to extend Colquitt St to Yupon. I also like how they plan to turn the parking lot for the Flavin installation into green space and turn Loretto into a walking path only.
  15. Does anyone have insight into how the Menil plans to use the open green space between Richmond Ave. and the Menil? Are they going to leave it "as is" and leave it open to the public or is there going to be a material investment in landscape design, new plantings, etc? Thanks!
