  1. I've started thinking about that since there are some that fall into different categories. For example - Block 370, where the Tellepsen YMCA is today, briefly housed two proposals in the early 80s. The first was what I would say was a fairly non-descript building about 40 stories tall and had very little information other than a couple of entries in the Houston Post. The entity that owned it and proposed that tower scuttled those plans after they sold to Campeau Corporation which proposed the 80-story Campeau Tower, of which there was considerably more coverage, photos of models and the like. Maybe there were other plans over the years as well. There's also the category of projects that were only partly built, leading up to the current day and I'm not sure how I'd differentiate those. A few I can think of like Westheimer Central Plaza, One Westchase Center and Granite 290 Tower among others that were all muti-tower projects which only saw one of the proposed structures built. Others like the small office park at Bissonnet and Woodfair had multiple buildings that were built, but there was at least another 12-story structure or two, residences and a retail component that were originally included as part of the plans but were later axed - the 1980s take on a mixed-use development. I appreciate all of the feedback so far and those who have voted. I never put a time limit on it since I still need to find the things I did print out. They're still in one of my office boxes that I have yet to unpack after my move to my new home earlier in the year.
  2. Took me forever to realize where this was then I remembered it from trips going back and forth from Abilene to DFW on I-20. I've wanted to try the restaurant for some time. Didn't realize it was open the full day. Might need to take the exit next time around.

  6. I remember getting a shirt from the event one of the years. Might need to go through and see if my mom kept it in storage after all these years the next time I'm home.
  7. BW Energy Management USA takes 68KSF on the top three floors of the office building https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/real-estate/article/Oil-and-gas-company-inks-HQ-lease-at-new-Memorial-17457230.php
  8. This is now the TMC Innovation Factory https://www.tmc.edu/innovation/ Interestingly enough, the history page seems to have the same color image that was seen in this post from TexasUltra.
  9. https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2022/09/26/camp-margaritaville-bolivar-peninsula-rv-park.html The site will rebrand by November. The site currently has about 200 RV spaces and will add 400+ more. The clubhouse and pool will be updated to Margaritaville's dining options. Additional pools and unstated amenities may be added in the future with the potential of a Margaritaville branded lodge or hotel down the line.

  11. Wanted to update this thread regarding the parcels on the side facing the Southwest Freeway. Golden Corral actually built a new restaurant just east of the Discount Tire a few years back. The building that was originally The PepperMill, then Ninfa's and finally El Acapulco, was demolished back in March of this year. In leasing materials, the former K-Mart is now referred to as Rosenberg Towne Center. Seems to have decent traffic each time I've been by in the past.
  12. I'd been curious about this chain of restaurants for a while but just hadn't created the thread. Does anyone know the background? I seem to recall other restaurants years ago with different names but the same logo and color scheme in their branding. Was wondering if they were owned by the same group or were named by franchisees or something else.
  13. Closed in 2014. https://houston.eater.com/2014/12/18/7417611/no-more-mac-cheese-at-jus-mac-in-sugar-land The space held Sweetwater Seafood / Yep Seafood which was a longer-lived concept. Teriyaki Kitchen took over in 2019 or 2020 and is still there.
  14. That's very true. One of the few places there were good photos of the Chase Tower under construction that I was aware of. The good news is that some of them still exist. The photographer's period photos of Fort Worth appear to be in the Library Archives there. Some of his Minneapolis photos are digitally preserved and available online. Wish the Houston photos were available somewhere else.
