  1. New mixed use building at Polk & Dowling in East Downtown?

    I blame Lovett. IMO, they seem fairly inadequate and inexperienced in securing any big name national retail tenants for their projects, especially for any of their hoards of empty and derelict properties they own in the East End & EaDo. I shudder at the thought of their purchase of the former downtown post office complex. That project could have been so much more had a bigger, more experienced developer won the bid. It will likely remain empty for years or at the very most, be a very mediocre development in the end....a lot like this once promising project is heading toward.
  2. Any issues

    I’ve given up performing moderator duties as none of the moderator functions are working for me...Move, Edit, Hide, none of them work. Looks like the administrator doesn’t care either (as this has been going on for weeks) so I guess y’all can say whatever the hell you like now. Lol. =P
  3. East River - KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    If realized, this would be a game changer for the EaDo, East End and Fifth Ward.
  4. Block 436 & 437 (Formerly Milhaus Midtown)

    Nope it’s not just you. It’s dated and unattractive IMO. Is it bad that I’m ready for it to be bulldozed before it’s even built? They need to go back to the drawing board on the facade with this one.
  5. The Post Oak: 36-Story High-Rise & Conference Center

    What do you expect from a guy whose family ran an organized crime ring in Galveston? The guy is a wannabe, mini cheeto. One already is obviously too much.
  6. Someone mentioned on Next Door that they spoke to the Kroger manager and they said after the Dollar General lease ends next door in two years that the Kroger will expand into that space.
  7. Seattle bans plastic straws

    Good! We don’t have 20-30 years to wait for the majority of uninformed/ignorant consumers to get on board with these plastic bans. I feel they need to be forced at this point especially for the sake of our planet, ocean and wildlife. They didn’t ask for our non biodegradable waste in their habitats. And shame on Texas for going backasswards on the city plastic bag bans. I live in Santa Fe, NM now where there is a plastic bag ban and it has been a very easy transition for us. The affordable and durable fabric reusable bags have worked out just fine when grocery shopping and are much stronger than the flimsy plastic bags. It’s truly a no brainer. I do concur that some plastic bags will still have purpose but not in the highly wasteful amounts that we are currently using.
  8. Any issues

    Not been able to perform some moderator functions, the “like” button for posts appears not to be working anymore, when I click for the most recent post on a particular topic, it instead takes me to the top of whatever page said post is on. What is going on??
  9. Planned LBJ Statue and Monument Downtown

    I’d rather see a park filled with statues of civil rights leaders, influencers & icons from all walks of life....Black, Indigenious, LGBT, Hispanic. Would be a lot more educational and fascinating than a statue of some old white guy from a long time ago.
  10. Why would I even want to remember a president who was first to engage the loony Christian Right, giving us the loony Republicans we see today and a president who ignored the AIDS crisis. No thanks!
  11. Hotel RL & Residences @ 1005 St Emanuel Street

    True and likely, but I’m solely giving my two cents based on this rendering alone.
  12. Hotel RL & Residences @ 1005 St Emanuel Street

    For me it’s the flag more so than the circular feature. The flag just looks downright cheesy displayed in this manner on the building.
  13. Fortune 500

    Houston really needs to try harder to diversify its list of Fortune 500 companies. Still way too many oil, gas, and energy related companies dominating the economy. Not healthy in the long term to put all your strength and reliance into one industry.
  14. Fenix Estates: Affordable Housing @I-45 and Hussion St.

    If that rumor is true then maybe Lovett, who currently owns the old Macy’s warehouse site, sold off a large parcel to Aspen. Nothing as of yet to reflect that on Lovett’s Commercial site. The leasing page is still showing a Burlington and Palais Royal store as part of that redevelopment.
  15. Fenix Estates: Affordable Housing @I-45 and Hussion St.

    Interesting. Any idea where specifically on Lockwood this development will be?
