  1. I drove by this area the other day, and am curious to everyone's thoughts to what will happen to the neighboring communities. Since the plan looks like midway is looking to develop a "town" within the 150 acres... would the neighboring area (specifically east of Hirsch Rd.) stay as is? Or would that get gentrified? Also, I see architect on record for the project is Gensler. Any updates in general to the master planning of this east river project?
  2. umm ok, when it comes to cars i tend to talk alot but i'll make this short, lol don't go to sears, they suck for tires. only go to sears if u want to buy a diehard battery. if ur going to replace tires i highly suggest discount tire. the reason y is each tire is different, i wont go into detail about this cuz then cliff notes would be needed to read this. anyway, each tire is different if you are going to go the cheap route for ur tires then you will need the warranty discount offers. if u get a blow out, flat, etc they replace the tire for free. cheap tires more than likely will do this, have
  3. hey guys sorry for the delay. i talked to my "source" lol. anyway, groundbreaking wont occur till spring of '08 i was asked not to give specifics, but this is the updated general info. The Asia House will be openening in 2010. Millwork for this project has been worked out and so far it looks pretty cool. there are some renderings, but unfortunately due to the nature of the project i can't post them right now, sorry. further down the line i can give u guys more specifics, but the firm working on this project respects their clients privacy and is a well respected firm that doesn't want to relea
  4. i would recommend discount tire. although it's not a mom n pop place most mom n pop places don't offer lifetime balance and rotation, which is something you're going to have to do often if you maintain ur car properly. discount tire offers lifetime for cheap. plus imo they do top notch work.

  14. its funny u mentioned that. today a co-worker went to chick-fil-a and she was all excited that it only took her "5 minutes" to get through the drive through. she said they had 2 guys out there writing down ppl's order to get through the line fast. then all the girls shouted "yaaay, lets go to that one from now on!!" lol. but i'll admit chick fil a has some good food! there's one lady here who plans on dressing up like a cow for july 13, LOL....
  15. sounds cool. although i would of preferred biddong on chance for lunch with Lisa Foronda.
  16. interesting, i dont think i was ever aware of that camp. do you mind me asking which firms you went to? when you graduate do you plan to work for an arch. firm? the firm i'm at hires college kids to give them experience. we have a girl from A&M here who is 20, i'd recommend doing that as it gives students a great deal of experience and what to expect upon graduating.
  17. perfect, that's the link i needed. thanks.
  18. i didn't realize they were that big. i thought it was just those 3/4 guys going on tour. now i'm not even sure what show will be at the toyota, i'm assuming it's the concert??? either way i'll be getting tix to see what the hype is about.
  19. i'm confused, the map on post 1 shows the rail going to iah. i'm not sure i understand how it stops at northline. can you post a link where it shows specifics on what streets that particular line of rail will be going through? or, can anyone post such a link to clarify this? i'm hearing a bunch of rumors due to future projects and i just want to be clear on this issue.
  20. what? really? so the blue man group isn't just those 3 guys or 4 i don't even know how many there are. so, one group will go to one location and another group goes to another??
  21. oh dayum, that comment was funny. made me laugh here in my cribicle. try going to the chick-fil-a on post oak and richmond from 11-1, line goes out to post oak at times!!!
  22. ummm yeah, so a lot of my co-workers are chick-fil-a fiends and they forwarded this info. so who knows, those of u who want a free meal and don't mind dressing up to look like a cow, july 13 is a day for you. http://www.chick-fil-a.com/documents/cowAppreciationFAQs.pdf
  23. so u like cat pics?? i got lots of those ok, this thread has officially been hijacked by cats, lol.
  24. a community pool. if i'm not mistaken, i think the answer to your question would be no. you can not build within the setback. that is y they make it a setback in case one day the city has to back to run lines or what not. you can call the city to make sure but i'm almost certain they are going to say no. oh, but b4 i forget. i'm not familiar with your project, but you may be able to apply for a variance to build within the setback. best of luck on ur project!
