  1. the irony of course is that their is a massive parking garage on the same block (serving the Hess tower).......it's too bad that can't integrate it into this design.
  2. Went to Phoenicia today for lunch........they were tearing up Austin St. in front. I'm assuming (hoping) this would be related to the new bike path from Midtown.
  3. Kind of off topic, but it looks like a renovation is underway at the old Hans Bier Haus? Any updates on that project I can find on HAIF?
  4. Reminds me a lot of a new building on the Yale campus (I believe it is the business school) My apologies if it is mentioned earlier, but is the new pedestrian bridge over Memorial part of this project? Or part of the long-term plan for the bayou? It would be great to have another connection to this park.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
