    UT started the war.  Now we are going to encircle Austin and defeat it.  If the legislature won't let us into the permanent fund then we'll have to explore other options. :ph34r:

    Riverwalk lights are the best.

    I can see it now UH-Dallas UH-Austin 😁

    This 1947 photograph of Holcombe & Main is pretty cool.  You can see the foundation for the Shamrock Hotel and parking garage. I wonder what the building is on the lower left. Looks like a dance hall? I also see a residential development closer to the point of the intersection A service station on the corner.

    Is that Harris Gully?

    Damn I never knew this hotel was built with a garage.

    Heck yeah for sure! A buddy from Miami came to visit and he said the same thing. He was like "Man you guys really pack it in here." And when he said that I guess I just didn't realize how dense we actually are. 

    We just need a little more organization and we'll be good!

    I hope so. Makes so much more sense to have GFR frontage on the pedestrian-friendly side than the highway-lite sides. Montrose Collective definitely got that part right.

    I do know they plan to have gfr on Eagle as well.

    The tower crane operator who works for TAS just messaged me on IG saying his bosses just told him they are moving him to a Hanover high rise project to build a 42 story high rise here in Houston. He is currently operating the tower crane at the Marquette Companies White Oak apartments. He was told he would transfer over to his new job around Jan-March. He was also the operator at the Allen project on the taller crane and the tower crane operator at the Hanover River Oaks. Only building that qualifies in that height range is the one at Hanover Autry Park.

    Nice! I can't wait for that tower to be built it's gonna have one hell of a presence on Allen Parkway and Memorial!

    I don't know. It seems whatever redevelopment plans may have been on the drawing board are on hold.

    As you may recall, local restaurant group Eighty Six'd opened three concepts in Post Oak Shopping Center this year: Sushi on Post Oak, event center Toque, and Irish pub Ducky McShweeney's.

    no something happened where Dick's at one point told me they were moving out this year...then months later they told me they renewed their contract.... kooky as i was excited about this possible redevelopment. I am sure it will eventually happen...just not sure when

    I guess eventually one day.

    It was sold to Hi Tech Auto Realty in February 2022. That entity is managed by Ricardo M Weitz, who seems to have been associated with Momentum. In March 2022, there is a deed of trust to Cadence Bank and a trustee Charles J Pignuolo with a $192 million  mortgage and a 20 page list of properties that includes Baytown Nissan, Central Houston Nissan, the Kirby Mansion, David McDavid Nissan, as well as properties in Williamson and Travis counties I can't be bothered to go look for.

    It's all on the County Clerk's website.

    I forgot to mention that I believe Mr.Weitz already owns the central dealerships so I guess it went from one hand to the other.

    Ricardo Weitz use to own the Momentum Auto Group until it was sold to Sonic Automotive in the mid 2000s.

    Well the Ballpark Village has to be a "go" now, and I hope this season made it easier to select the "Rolls Royce" option!  Sounds like Crane can finance a good chunk of it with weekend t-shirt sales!

    Man I've been thinking the same! How many lots does he own again?

  13. It seems like the older this ballpark gets the better it gets I was looking at photos of the new ballpark in Arlington it's nice but it seems kinda sterile. I also like the glass that lets in all the natural lighting in the outfield. I think our ballpark has a lot character and is turning into a classic in my opinion.

     

    Go Astros tonight 🤘🏽👩🏾‍🚀
