  1. I've been struck by the sustained rise in both oil and natural gas prices in just three months. It should be good for the local economy. Still disappointed that Houston can't compete for some of the corporate relocations such as the rumored Goldman Sachs regional campus going into the Insurrection Belt in Far North Dallas...

    There was really an opportunity to create an entrance to the bayou and walkway, even minimalistic like this with some simple landscaping.




    If I look carefully, I can imagine Tobe Nwigwe sitting with Paul Wall....

    To be clear, that is not a "preliminary" number.  That is the July 1 population estimate, a different set of numbers than the official decadal census.

    FWIW, the annual growth estimates are as follows:

    • July 1, 2010-2011:  108,823
    • July 1, 2011-2012:  127,111
    • July 1, 2012-2013:  144,503
    • July 1, 2013-2014:  171,753
    • July 1, 2014-2015:  171,428
    • July 1, 2015-2016:  135,512
    • July 1, 2016-2017:  92,597
    • July 1, 2017-2018:  76,036
    • July 1, 2018-2019:  88,452
    • July1, 2019-2020:  91,078

    I think the slow-down was probably more a result of the drop in oil prices than Harvey (the biggest drop in growth occurred pre-Harvey).

    Those estimates are always a bit wacky. The only thing you can trust are the actual census numbers, which have had a tendency to lop some of that growth back. Especially in Dallas-Fort Worth...

    I love it, it's beautiful. Unfortunately, I think this has "to be scaled back down to earth" written all over it.


    I seriously hope I am wrong though.

    I'd love to know who the potential tenants for this are going to be...

    Kind of wish they had waited a few more months. Now we may have to wait another year to see even the dirt being moved on new stuff around the TMC, etc.

    Yep - the current Google imagery is rather dated...
