  1. http://www.houstontimeportal.net/ Stumbled across this neat website. Interesting history and then and now shots.
  2. It really is amazing. I moved downtown in September 2017 and this project was underway. You can see date stamps on the concrete, 2018, 2019, 2021.
  3. https://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/See-what-Houston-s-Super-Bowl-party-central-10903581.php#photo-12298487 I was looking through these photos the other day and it looks like the One Park Place block was an old park. Was this a private park? I assume if it was public it would have been included with Discovery Green. Also, you can see the Medical Arts Building in one photo. What a loss.

    Bayou Place

    I drove past Bayou Place last night, it looks like The Blue Fish might be closed permanently. Not sure about the status of Napoli. Assuming AMC survives and Revention rebounds, maybe there is hope for this place. I think a dream scenario would be to tear it all down and connect Jones Plaza, Tranquility Park, and Buffalo Bayou with park space. Expensive wishful thinking.
  5. $1260 is "Market/Asking Rate" like MSRP. They are offering 1 month free which brings in down to $1,155 effective. I would be surprised if they don't get more aggressive. Downtown apartments regularly have 1-3 months free, look and lease bonuses, referral bonuses, etc. 2 months free would bring these down to $1,050.
  6. http://swamplot.com/big-block-on-the-corner-of-westheimer-and-montrose-goes-up-for-sale/2012-03-08/ Swamplot has some old pictures of the Tower Shopping Center.
  7. I stayed here in 2015. I did have to book 8-10 months in advance. I remember the whole place being very tired. The rooms were rough. I was willing to accept a dated room, but the mattress and bedding were easily 15 years old and very uncomfortable. The restaurant was a highlight for what it was - great views, some decent dishes, good service, and nice patio with local beer. It was great to stay in the park.
  8. Sorry for the delay. Here are some pics from One Park Place on 9/27.
  9. You beat me! I took a similar pic yesterday evening. It looks like the surrounding walls might be part of the neighboring buildings?
  10. Did anyone ever figure out what they are doing to the facade? It appears they are reinforcing the granite panels. You can see the holes and plugs on most of the tower. It affects the appearance up close and when light reflects off the tower.
  11. It is under contract now. A 3,500 sf addition seems excessive. It must have been in worse condition than they expected. It looks like they had to take it to the studs in and out.
  12. https://www.har.com/homedetail/1117-saint-agnes-st-a-houston-tx-77030/8668808?lid=3768699 The entire complex is up for sale.
  13. I am sure the Astros are focused on revenue generating improvements, but the park has needed a paint job for years and several of the windows in Union Station are rotting. I wonder if they have any plans for general maintenance. I would hate to see a historic structure fall into disrepair. Does the Harris County-Houston Sports Authority require any minimum repairs from the Astros? I took other similar pictures, but they were too large to load.
  14. This website is helpful. www.bricknames.com It is proabbly Cofyvle, short for Coffeyville. COFFEYVILLE BIT. BRICK & TILE CO., COFFEYVILLE, KS.
