  1. They need to use the original typeface that was used in the class rings.
  2. Banish the thought! We who were in those early classes back in the '70s want nothing to do with "Fame". Better to ask the late Ruth Denney. And the theatre needs a Star of David in the ceiling.
  3. I think that's intended, as is the line to Intercontinental. How soon depends on John Culberson getting removed from office.
  4. Houston did not get Harris Teeter, which became a major fixture in DC (the Teeter in Shirlington is a great example of mixed use combining residential, shops and even a theater and library). Sadly Teeter's been gobbled up by Kroger, so no chance of seeing them in Texas.
  5. At the same time, this one isn't going away. BisNow included a mention of it in today's edition. Along with a 6-story residential also being developed by Trammell Crow but not shown on the development map.
  6. Colliers claims 90% of the A and B product downtown is leased, based on this morning's BisNow (I know - two different people, two different days, two different opinions). And rents are going way up.
  7. Except there is a Broadway and it goes straight to Hobby Airport. (And one day, it might even be nice to look at ).
  8. They're going to need groceries. The whole swath from MacGregor all the way up to Northside and beyond is regarded as a "food desert", so it could definitely support something along the lines of WinCo, Aldi or Market Basket. Trader Joe's could also make a go of it down there. DC has done a lot with apartment blocks atop grocery stores, so it can work in any urban setting.
  9. Warriors of the World, by Marx! It will definitely be massive. I'm not sure I can wait the year for this to start.
  10. So the design was so underwhelming they refused to disclose it? I sense another five-level stone-faced apartment block wrapped around a garage.
  11. That may wait till it opens. Any word on the Apache HQ? Or did Carl Icahn's meddling succeed in killing it?
  12. So far, that honor seems to belong to another team at the other end of I-45.
  13. I'm surprised that a 6-story building is being built without a tower crane. Of course it's all wood framing.
  14. And Northside appears to be next.
  15. Figures they'd put it behind a paywall. It's going to be a nice building, but it will completely obscure West Ave.
  16. Until the permit shows up in HBJ, it's not really underway. Given reports of labor shortages and escalating materials costs, I would not be surprised if the project has had trouble starting. I just hope whoever bid the project built in the extra costs.
  17. Actually, Hanover sold that property to AMLI, so the name is once again available. Sarnoff's column has a nice big white space. What do you suppose was supposed to go in there?
  18. I would guess Montgomery County can support a A or possibly a AA baseball team. The reference to the hockey team intrigues me, though, as Houston lost its only minor league team after the Rockets kicked them out of Toyota Center (Hockey? Shoot, there's money to be made selling tickets to Miley Cyrus and Disney on Ice!).
