  1. Yes. It's a fully functioning ranch right in the shadow of Downtown. https://www.visithoustontexas.com/listings/american-cowboy-museum/19615/
  2. I've lived in the neighborhood for over 30 years and it the new store is in fact being built on top of the former path of Brays Bayou. That's what the little ravine that parallels Mac Gregor is. The site is also partly on a 500 year flood plain and a 100 year flood plain. Residents surrounding the store have valid concerns about the potential for flooding since you're putting a lot of concrete on top of what was previously a few slabs and grass. Hopefully the moat and ponds will do their job.
  3. Hopefully Chartres underneath the ramp has been re-opened so I can get directly to Pease in the mornings without detouring along Gray to one of the northbound streets.
  4. That top photo really looks like one of those architectural renderings with people all about in different, somewhat unrealistic poses. All it took was a comic convention for it to play out in real life. Nice!
  5. They're hoping to have it open in November in time for Thanksgiving. At the rate they're going, I think they'll meet that deadline.
  6. The old DeBakey High School for Health Professions on Shenandoah St. is coming down. I suspect it might have something to do with the new UTHealth Psychiatric Hospital being built across the street from it. Perhaps it'll be the site of parking as the new hospital will displace a parking lot. This is the only photo I could find of the demolition process.
  7. That was formerly Pruitt & Pruitt Funeral home. It was moved to a location on Liberty in the late 00s.
  8. This is very minor, but I've noticed in the past week that the general green COH street signs that you usually see mounted atop a stop sign, street lamp post, or traffic light post have received a slight change. They now have a white border around them. Very minor I know. Most people wouldn't notice, but I know that the forum members here aren't most people. That border seems to be the only change. The signs still use the same white Arial type font and green hue as before. I do have to commend Houston for placing the block number on most their street signs. Though Google Maps is a great help, I hate when I'm looking for a destination in another city/municipality and their street signs don't have the block number. *cough*AtlantaGalvestonandBirmingham*cough*.
  9. That's sad. People from the community would go there on Fridays during lent for fried fish plates. They also held community events with car shows, talent shows, and zydeco shows. I hope it does get turned into a vocational and technical high school. Otherwise, it'll just be home to more bland, box apartments like you see on the other side of 288.
  10. This schematic shows the railroad crossings remaining as-is under the freeway, but that can always change. http://ftp.dot.state.tx.us/pub/txdot/get-involved/hou/sh35-i610/040618-schematic2.pdf
  11. Rush hour traffic will always exist, so that means the biggest, widest, baddest freeway ever built won't be overkill. 🤷‍♂️
  12. I found this article about the freeway. Looks like they were asking that question 50 years and never answered it. https://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/article/Expansion-of-Alvin-freeway-may-yet-be-completed-1982804.php
