  1. Don't complain. It could be orange.
  2. And in other news from Tweak Coffee... http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2015/05/28/grand-texas-reworks-master-plan-delays.html Looks like everything's delayed, and they want to add an outlet mall.
  3. At least one of the apartment complexes underway on Memorial Drive had water up to the second level of the garage.
  4. Just remember - you can't be big on Broadway if you don't have any Jews...
  5. It was gifted to them by Bob McNair. Equivalents in DC would be the church-related theater companies (Aldersgate, St. Mark's) but on a much more ambitious scale.
  6. I found something else that's going up faster than Block 334...
  7. Damn - a PM holding a GC's feet to the fire on a guaranteed maximum price? How novel. Usually a GC files a claim for changed conditions and the project owner rolls over like a dog wanting its belly scratched...
  8. Oh, let's spread the pain around... http://www.dallasnews.com/business/columnists/mitchell-schnurman/20150420-schnurman-how-low-oil-prices-are-squeezing-jobs-in-dallas.ece Bill Gilmer now says Houston will create only 13,000 jobs this year.
  9. Well, if they don't depart from someplace like San Francisco.
  10. Well, people are always griping about ugly parking garages going up in Houston, but this is going up in Downtown Dallas (according to reports):
  11. That must mean they have an unannounced lease for a trading desk.
  12. Do the tall floors at the lower level count as one floor or two? That's a massive building and it's still got several floors to go.
  13. Let's put it this way - if they think they can get it cheaper by waiting, they're dreaming. Or sharing the bowl that HISD is smoking.
  14. It may be defying all conventional wisdom, but WTI oil is over $60 a barrel this morning. At this rate, half the E&P companies in town are going to regret all those layoffs they made at the beginning of the year when November rolls around.
  15. He needs to have a muralist paint an alligator on the sides of those garages.
  16. All that hyperventilation over a six-story wrap? All the numbers that have come in so far say things haven't been as bad as expected. And oil's $59 a barrel. What if this was all a hoax to scare off guys like Campo?
  17. Given their origins, Houston First is supposed to bring new businesses, new residents, new conventions and other new things to Houston by whatever means necessary. Including beatdowns of the Perots.
  18. Probably Citgo paid them. That Fenway Park sign is as iconic as the old Cains Mayonnaise sign next to the MIT campus.
  19. So they are repurposing the building next door and adding a rooftop terrace? How many units are they planning in there?
  20. I think Camden's presence on the NYSE was reason enough to pitchfork Campo into that position.
  21. Please don't let it get hit by a forklift... Please let the Astros win a few more in a row.
