  1. The Pierce Elevated/I-59 Redesign Thread

    The South Canal is back, baby! Below is how it was envisioned to snake around the street and freeway grid in 2002. I never get tired of referring back to this old thing.
  2. The Hampstead - 1508 Blodgett

    And down it goes.
  3. Block 58 Redevelopment by Hines, 47-Story Office Tower

    I can't remember what it was but you could definitely tell from the repeating patterns that it wasn't natural stone. The cladding took about 4 years and was completed just in time for Ike to blow off a panel or two.
  4. East River - KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    The Urban Edge weighs in, including another plan for the area by the Greater East End folks.
  5. East River - KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    14 years.
  6. Activity at Finger's Furniture on Gulf Freeway

    facebook thread about Swamplot's post The other Walmart is 2.25 miles away. Bentonville don't care, apparently.
  7. Improvements Coming to Allen Parkway

    The westbound lanes (formerly the eastbound lanes) opened yesterday afternoon! Just a few feet's difference dramatically changes your view of things like the Federal Reserve. I'd take a pic, but, y'know, driving.
  8. Lower Heights District

    It's very "Hill Valley".
  9. Improvements Coming to Allen Parkway

    The optimist in me says the signs are coming and were just delayed by the floods. At the very least, people are starting to realize Allen Parkway isn't Little Katy Freeway anymore and aren't speeding quite as much as they were even last week.
  10. Improvements Coming to Allen Parkway

    Heading westbound the light also sneaks up on you. Yesterday afternoon I thought to myself "someone is going to run this light" and as if on cue a young man in a motorcycle flew through the red light going at least 40. "Signal Ahead" flashers are absolutely necessary. I may switch to Memorial for the time being.
  11. Improvements Coming to Allen Parkway

    The Dunlavy signals came online yesterday. I was terrified of being rear-ended this morning going eastbound. You can't really see the light until you round a curve and are almost on top of it.
  12. White Oak Music Hall on N Main

    The Chronicle says the HPD spokesman made a boo boo.
  13. I hear this in regards to making the existing tunnels ADA-compliant, "too expensive." What's changed since the initial excavations? More underground infrastructure? Environmental regulations?
  14. White Oak Music Hall on N Main

    Pics from eight days ago. The finished permeable surface The lot in progress across North. Street sign slightly slanted.
  15. [500 Crawford] Seven Story Apartments Near the Ballpark

    "Enron Field Heights." It references and yet is simultaneously grossly insensitive to local history. It's perfect.
