  1. Any updates on the planned roundabout here? I think it would be a great addition and a nice gateway to Navigation
  2. Wonderful news! And I can see how the continuation of the Austin St. dedicated bike plan will tie in well here.
  3. Apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere, but do we know what the Hay Merchant/Blacksmith folks have planned for that lot? I'm out of state now, but I seem to recall it being fenced up the last time I was in town. And perhaps a variance request? Thanks. Just hoping to see more good news along this stretch of Westheimer...
  4. elevated bike path right down the middle of Memorial.....it could become an iconic Houston structure. Someone call Rich Kinder!
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
