  1. The numbers underwent some major revision, as there was one year (2017) that was previously identified by census as a no-growth year, but it has since been revised upward. Over a million in one decade. Still on track to surpass the Chicago metro in less than 25 years....
  2. Houston may yet get Baker Hughes back as a locally-based company.
  3. I can't believe all that real estate has any prospective tenants. Unless the GHP is going to make an aggressive push to bring in business from out of town, it's going to be a while. But you might be amused at this interesting diss in the Boston version of Bisnow, regarding our neighbors up north.... "Dallas Office Park by the Sea"
  4. I actually am pessimistic. One of the early paragraphs in the story is that the merge will result in some job layoffs (as these things usually do). To make this building happen, they would have had to suggest a thousand new hires or something like that. Another interesting tidbit is that Chevron doesn't appear to be the only bidder circling. Rumor has it Occidental is interested and actually outbid Chevron.
  5. It actually is. You have to get your car into the building, then up to the fourth floor just to get to that stair that moves for you...
  6. At DFW Airport 35 years ago, it was fewer sacks of concrete than specified in the runways. People eventually went to jail over it...
  7. I remember when that building went up. I haven't seen that steel exposed since 1962...
  8. Looks like they took the offices off the garage, resulting in the current configuration. And it sure went up fast.
  9. What they really need is some spillover from Chinatown. Otherwise In-N-Out will remain the biggest thing going for this place...
  10. So the McDonalds that resisted the coming of the Astoria got wiped away, after all? So it's the Interstate 85 of Uptown?
  11. I'm still wondering what that coffee storefront jammed into the side of the building is...
  12. I remember the old Westcreek Market. I drove past that more than a few times. Sad to see it go, but it was bound to happen.
  13. I can remember when that rating and the Mobil Five-Star were considered unachievable in Houston. Next comes a Michelin star...
  14. Yeah, I had to check GooglEarth to make sure of what I was looking at.
  15. Done and done. 3-0. Sounds like DK had his usual dominant game.
  16. In March, there will be a nationwide revision of the national employment numbers, and then we'll know for certain. What is interesting is that the Dallas-Fort Worth economy is also slowing a bit (103,000 new jobs YOY versus 125,000 YOY earlier this year. Meanwhile San Francisco/San Jose has created 125,000, Los Angeles is seeing 120,000 new jobs, and New York is showing 160,000 new jobs. They need a lot of construction workers to build those thousand-foot condos in Midtown Manhattan.
  17. I haven't heard anything lately about GE. But Southlake is getting a regional campus for TD Ameritrade. Facebook, of all people, has a data center planned for far north Fort Worth. Liberty Mutual, Toyota and State Farm have projects going up in Plano. At one time they were all looking...
  18. The ZaZa has a groundbreaking scheduled. This weekend, if I'm not mistaken.
  19. Whatever it is, timing is right. The Classes of 1971-84 will be gathering this weekend to honor the school.
