  1. I have one within walking distance but rarely ever walk there.
  2. The brochure seems to be gone. Did they already take it down? Edit: just noticed the “updated” brochure was in a post from 2.5 years ago.
  3. I would be surprised to see many new construction announcements in Houston for years. The projects that are in the ground now could be the last we see for a long time.
  4. I sure hope not too but I suspect it could be even worse. I’ve never seen layoffs in the petrochemical industry like I’m seeing now.
  5. There comes a point when the solution is worse than the problem. I’m starting to think 2% of the population dying might be a sacrifice we should make. After another month of this we might be very close to social unrest caused by economic issues, not medical ones.
  6. Downstream projects that are currently under construction are considering long delays and staff reductions now. We could be seeing massive layoffs in about 3 weeks. This is about to start getting very, very bad. I never thought I would see multi billion dollar construction projects that are underway grind to a halt.
  7. I figure that question was about construction sites closing due to the virus. From what I’ve read construction workers are exempt from lockdown. I live close to regent square and can see the crane from my window. They appear to be working today.
  8. Same problem in my street.
  9. The traffic issues aren’t why I dread going to the Galleria. The whole place has a flea market vibe these days.
  10. I would think pricing that kills fracking would super duper kill offshore. The only silver lining I can think of, and this is a real reach, is that downstream could benefit from lower feed prices.
  11. I live in upper Kirby and drive all the way to Porsche north Houston because Sonic dealerships are the worst. I’ve bought 7 Porsches since 2007. Sonic is so bad I’ll drive 15 miles up 45 to avoid them.
  12. I enjoy going to ROD. My attitude towards a trip to the Galleria is “Oh crap, I have to go to The Galleria.”
  13. That address comes up as the parking lot next to #s on Google Maps. #s is at 300 Westheimer. The parking lot seems to be owned by a different entity than either #s or El Tiempo. Not saying that this listing doesn't mean #s is up for lease. I'm definitely going to check with some people in the know ASAP. Edit: Just noticed the lease includes a 9000sf building. That would appear to be #s.
  14. Oh no. I absolutely abhor rent freezing. I was only wondering if the market could react in a way that would make downtown more competitive. A rent freeze would be a disaster.
  15. I would like to see the companies that I work for/with take up some of the space in the 30-40 year old buildings instead of moving to the suburbs. I've been involved in 2 moves to the suburbs because of the high cost of office space in the core. Shouldn't some of the space being opened up by the flight to quality make the older buildings more affordable or is there some economic reason that this doesn't work. Bottom line, why do I have to work in Sugarland or halfway to Katy when there is empty space downtown? Maybe we need to stop upgrading to attract new tenants and invest that
  16. Tower crane is going up today. I’d post a photo but they all show up sideways from iPhone.
  17. I walked by that park daily for years. Maybe it’s better now but back then around 2009 it really was used for drug sales and use quite a bit. I wouldn’t say it should be demolished but maybe reworked somehow.
  18. I agree. It took a long time to start but once they did it’s gone quickly. I see a reduced crew working on Saturdays.
