  1. Surprised this thread hasn't gotten more attention over the years since there's been a lot happening development-wise, especially between downtown and the Baylor campus. My family and I come through town every 6 months or so and I've been impressed with the pace of things. I'm interested to see what will become of the riverfront development they've been working on. I know the apartments are underway but am wondering about the plans to add a hotel on the river as part of it. I was somewhat disappointed when the Drury Plaza disappeared from those plans but hopefully another flag could come in. Baylor's Welcome Center on University Parks at 35 is the big attention-grabber at this point, even if it is still under construction.
  2. I was back in the area in the past week. Wasn't able to get pictures, but it looks like there's an enormous slab for the foundation that was in the process of being poured when I drove by. I likely won't be back until December, so hopefully there will be more to see on site by that time.
  3. Went by here in the past week during a family visit. The Starbucks is certainly open now and appeared to be doing decent business. Arby's and Taco Bueno looked pretty close to opening at that point, so I'm sure that will be happening soon.
  4. The first locations of the South African chain's Texas expansion will be in the Houston area - one at Post Oak Plaza and the other in La Centerra in Katy. Planned opening for both is next year. Nando's to open first Texas restaurants in Houston and Katy (houstonchronicle.com)
  5. I think it's odd there are no Texas projects listed given that, at least locally, they are responsible for the designs of 3737 Buffalo Speedway, 4 Waterway Square, 24 Waterway Ave, The Westin at The Woodlands, and the Waterway Square Garage.
  6. Definitely remember it. I was a really young kid then. We had to leave our house for a couple of days because the pipes burst, so we piled into the '78 Cougar XR-7 and slowly slid across town to Grandma's house and turned it into an excuse for a Christmas vacation.
  7. Based on the layout, the tower would be located where the station used to be. It's address was 1945 Allen Parkway, so I'm wondering if the tower will take that address as well.
  8. '512 Based on the map attached to the project pages, it seems to match this site. Proposed Case for TX: 2022-ASW-6891-OE (faa.gov) Proposed Case for TX: 2022-ASW-6894-OE (faa.gov) Proposed Case for TX: 2022-ASW-6895-OE (faa.gov) Proposed Case for TX: 2022-ASW-6896-OE (faa.gov)
  9. Didn't recall seeing a thread referencing this site, but I found this in the FAA Database. A '104 structure noted as "multi-unit housing". Proposed Case for TX: 2022-ASW-6060-OE (faa.gov) The address for the site is the current location of the Esperanza School.
  10. Based on the owner's LLC address, this is another project tied to Miami-based AHS Residential. They have a proposal for a 12 story apartment building/8 story garage at West 12th near the West Loop. The first local project announced was Park Ten Oaks - a trio of 12 story towers at Barker Cypress and Park Row.
  11. Found this at least for it on TDLR TDLR TABS - Project Details (texas.gov)
  12. The garage will be joined by a third Medical Office Building on the campus. Mentioned here a couple of weeks back...

  13. Satya mixed-use development coming to Rosenberg - Houston Business Journal (bizjournals.com) New 312-unit multifamily project at the southwest corner of SW Freeway & 36, directly east of the Epicenter site. The existing shopping center will gain additional tenants. The project includes the return of Starbucks (under construction) to the intersection, as well as a return of Arby's to Rosenberg and a new Taco Bueno among other leases. Some of the comments from Satya's president in the piece were a bit odd IMO. The bit about it having been several years since a multifamily development was built in the city is not accurate given Sueba USA's two building project with three fewer units than this proposal opened at the start of the year in Brazos Town Center. A second multifamily project of 234 units from Sueba is also planned for that development as well, just behind the Hampton Inn. The other comment "...the next loop which is going to go around the city is Highway 36. That's the major thoroughfare plan" - I'm not sure what that even means. 36 is not a loop like 99/8/610. The only analogue to a loop locally is Spur 10, which has already been upgraded to accommodate truck traffic between 59 & 36. Maybe it's that 36-A proposal that hasn't really gone anywhere? I'm not sure.
  14. Great Wolf Lodge waterpark resort big step closer to opening in Webster, Texas - Houston Business Journal (bizjournals.com)
  15. I'm curious if this even has legs anymore - sort of like the nearby Town Centre Two. I added it to Emporis a little over a year ago when I found it on Loopnet, where it's on at least the 2nd profile for the project. Project's stats haven't changed since then though.

  18. I've had that desire over the years also. Every time I've been tempted to stop in the breakdown lane for a second just to get a peek, my better judgement takes back over. Oh well. Completely fantasyland, but it could be an interesting concept for an observation tower, IMO. In the foreground you'd have the inner workings of the port, and the skylines in the back of course. As for boat tours - there are already some that traverse different portions of the Bayou. BBP has (seasonal?) ones that focus on different interests. The Port of Houston Authority has had a long running boat tour as well, though that's been temporarily suspended due to Covid.
  19. A new master-planned community is in the works for Mont Belvieu. It will be located on the intersection of FM 565 & FM 3360 In addition to housing, the developers are working to develop a town center, starting with upgrades to the existing municipal campus and the aid of city government.
