  1. Not abandoned, but an existing business. Not sure exactly what it is but it’s not retail.
  2. Think something's happening around here. Property is being surveyed. Heard the whole lot has a conditional sale to a local couple who plan to redo the Barabash storefront. Fingers crossed our nightly walks through the neighborhood can end with an ice cream cone from here....
  3. As far as the STAAR tests go, my kids are both Travis entering 2nd and 4th grade and neither have had a STAAR test yet. I don't think they start until 4th grade, although there are some standardized tests they do that kind of tell you where your kids rank in the greater scheme of things. Take those with a huge grain of salt, the teachers themselves don't seem worried about the results.

  5. Probably about time to create some catchy hashtaggable nomenclature for this, since I don't see any indication of a mattress store or cheque cashing spot. #lohei
  6. Is this just the parking lot itself? The east end of the black and white SITE graphic has an angular property line which sure looks like the Bobcat Teddy's property line. I think it's the parking lot plus the small white oak tributary...
  7. Triton, have you been following any of the I-45 construction talks? I'm sure sound mitigation is a popular item, and perhaps some of what you expected from the city could be done simultaneously here during the rebuild....
  8. I've been watching this out of my office window and was bummed at the lack of sidewalk the current markings would create. I do think the city really needs to revisit the Crawford lanes though....honestly, there isn't that much traffic coming around the corner from the Marquis or from those bypassing Disco Green to justify four traffic lanes ( or 2+2 parking). They could easily lose one. Or heck, make it a pedestrian only corridor from Disco Green to the Stadium. I bet those surface parking lots would evolve into something unique should that happen...
  9. Please please let that rail spur be a part of a white oak to buffalo bayou bike trail connector.
  10. Elan Memorial from what I gather....
  11. Flattered I guess they took my pic from here and used it for publicity. Viewed 2.7 million times. Figure they should at least give me a free float down the river. lol.
  12. Don't know of anything except for a real estate agent, but there's no shortage of neighborhood opinions here either! What are you looking for?
  13. The MM's are going up on the top floor this afternoon....
  14. I live in the Woodland Heights and get up in that corner occasionally, so I may not the best person to give advice, but I have some opinions nevertheless. Is it a good area? Yes. Is it a great area? Not yet. Its still transitional and that is nothing to fear, but if you're in it for the long haul I don't think there's any question it will be a good investment. Some things in life you may want need instant gratification on, other things you may be willing to wait. It depends on where you are in life, but recognize, life events can change quickly and as such so do your needs. I don't bel
  15. Crane's coming down. Attached image but getting haif error on iPhone upload. Maybe it'll show up, maybe not.
  16. Now that the title of this thread has been disproven in recent years, I now wonder to what extent we may be seeing some oversaturation. I hear about all these new and cool things coming to the Heights and love it but am wondering if they're all sustainable at this point. Then last night on a rare Tuesday when I didn't have to watch the kids, I went out, and the neighborhood restaurants (at least the white oak ones) were crazy busy. On a Tuesday. I am always happy to see that much engagement and support for our local eateries, but on the same note I miss being able to walk to your local res
  17. I'm a landlord in the heights. Just put a ton of money towards upgrades. Rented outside the MLS (by owner) in less than two weeks, over Christmas no less. Area is still very popular best I can tell and no desire to sell. I figure the area wont have a downturn, but is returning to a more normal healthy market.
  18. Tanith: character from star wars strip comic back in the 70s. I thought it was unique so it was my character name all through my dungeons and dragons years, is my avatar name whenever I play Fallout or Elder Scrolls or any other rpg type game, and when the internet came of age it was only appropriate that it carry over into the digital world. 27 is my birthday, so thats that.

  20. Have two kids, walking distance to Travis. Not ready for Kindergarten yet, but will soon. No other kids on our tiny street, but lots in the area. Seen many homeowners change, about half are empty nesters (many of whom are now grandparents whose grandkids are potential playmates for ours down the road) and younger families that may be just starting out. There is a definite price jump when you look at Harvard and Travis zones and the houses that are within. If HISD schooling isn't an issue for you, I'd start by looking outside the prime elementary school zones since you'll be paying a premi
