  1. Yes, huge disappointment.
  2. Seems a little premature, but Ulta Beauty is already running an ad for the General Manager position for this location.
  3. Bank of America Coming Soon sign up in the window.
  4. They tried it in Rio de Janeiro, but some people say that was just a vanity project for the Olympics. They built a 2.2 mile line and they say it cost $70M. The trip took 10 minutes, I couldn't quickly find any information on capacity/hour. A quick look on Google Maps shows the distance from the Post Office to KBR is about 1.5 miles, so about 30% shorter than the Rio line. And I love the Brazilians, but there's got to be some inefficiencies and graft in their numbers. So maybe $35-$40M? I'll leave it to others to investigate the access question and operating costs. But it would be cool!
  5. La Vibra was open last night when I drove by.
  6. I'm still hoping that they incorporate some sort of specific entrance from the bike path up in the northeast corner. Something inviting and landscaped with bike racks obviously. Don't see anything like that in the drawings.
  7. These have been my thoughts all along during the campaign. Metro should act immediately to start a line down Richmond from Midtown to at least Sage.
  8. If we're going to have them then that is the place: downtown, always been commercial, not towering over many single family homes.
  9. These guys are progressing as there is a TABC permit notification in the window of the south end of the building.
  10. I think the Houston Farmer's Market is a bad name from a Marketing perspective. Houston is a huge sprawling place so "Houston Farmer's Market" lacks specificity. We're already seeing lost tourists in the Heights on Saturday mornings stopping to ask directions to "the farmer's market" that they've heard about, but they don't know which of the many different one's they're really looking for. It could be Canino's or many times it's one of the many small collections of individuals at places like Onion Creek, etc. Retaining Airline or Canino's in the name would help them stand out from the rest.
  11. There's a banner up on the west end of the building announcing a pediatric dentistry office.
  12. Probably. The temporary sign is hanging on the far east wall of the building.
  13. First tenant sign has gone up for a Shipley's Do-nuts.
  14. New building permit in the window shows the name Neo Bagette Cafe.
  15. New sign for Dunkin' Donuts spotted at the old Schlotzsky's on the northeast corner of Yale and 20th. Or maybe it was a Quiznos?
