  1. Not sure what part of the Heights you live in, but my land value went up 19% as did all of the others on my block and blocks south, north, east and west of me. We are now at $50/sqft, up from $42 last year and $37 in 2013.
  2. KHOU now reporting that a smoke shop at 13th and Yale was robbed and the suspects fled in a vehicle. A citizen was chasing the suspects and the suspects fired out of the vehicle at the citizen and a woman pushing a baby in a stroller was struck by the stray bullet. She is expected to be OK and the baby was not injured.
  3. Chron is reporting a woman was shot in an apparent robbery at 13th and Harvard: http://www.chron.com/about/article/HPD-Woman-apparently-shot-in-Heights-robbery-5730881.php
  4. I pass by the corner of Heights/I-10 at approx. midnight five nights a week. There are usually a number of homeless people gathered at the seating area in the esplanade. They also walk about in the street with seemingly no regard for traffic. It will be interesting to learn more about this incident.
  5. I was searching for information regarding the variance sign posted in front of the new house next to 1236 Heights Blvd (something about the setback I think) and I happened to watch the video of one of the HAHC meetings. I didn't see anything about said variance, but did watch an interesting segment regarding a COA request for a new sign at the Infinity Title business across the street. Infinity Title is a business housed in bungalow and apparently they wanted to put a new sign on the building, which would go on the gable. "Staff" recommended approval of the new sign, but there was some grov
  6. About 4 days ago, 1606 Harvard went on the market for $459,000. That's $386 per square foot. Today, it appears the listing has disappeared -- could it have sold that fast? Anyone have access to someone that is "in the know" about this house? If I could get $386 per square foot for my house, I'd sell today!
  7. And a few (well, one) hysterical people, too.
  8. Good riddance to that dump. At least the burial mound they put in the front yard doesn't appear damaged.
  9. I just saw two guys walking up and down Harvard Street taking notes and using some sort of electronic device on a tripod. I asked them what they were doing and they said, "We're from the City, and we're measuring all of the contributing structures in the Historic Districts." It kind of reminded me of, "We're from the government, and we're here to help you."

    Houston Population Estimate: 2,100,000 times 50 cents per person equals $1,050,000 that we could give to s3mh to move far, far, away so Houstonians would not have to suffer his ideas being forced upon us.
  11. This "Yarn Bomb" art showed up on the trail near 16th. It's really cool! (edited to add pics)
  12. For those that haven't been by 14th/Studewood recently, the lot has been cleared -- Fiesta building completely gone.
  13. I may be behind the curve but I peeked over the edge of the freeway as I was crossing Yale eastbound (I always go to Studemont and U-turn so I can avoid the poorly-timed feeder lights at Yale and Heights) and I saw that the parcel where San Jacinto Stone was is completely cleared. I guess we'll see walls going up soon.
