  1. I think Post HTX is really going to help with that tourist attraction vibe.
  2. These residential high rises have been phenomenal at increasing retail density. It's an obvious outcome and I love it.
  3. I met the guy the other day. Apparently it is from the owners of Prospect Park, at least that is what he told me.
  4. Those who comment at the meetings can sway the meetings themselves. Sometimes you have a lot of people speaking on one side of the topic, so it seems overwhelmingly clear what public opinion is. Then, you have someone speak up who is in the minority, and you get a lot of others to finally speak up who feel the same way... A lot of times, these meetings have very vocal people who don't want something to happen. So if you personally want this to go through without delay, I would attend and have your voice heard. It will support others to speak up who feel the same way.

During the past 15 years, the organization has invested or leveraged more than $144M to compile a 70-acre patchwork of public spaces along the eastern waterfront.

Lovett Commercial, behind projects like Post HTX, sold a 5.8-acre property in Houston’s rapidly developing East End neighborhood to The Center for Pursuit, Houston’s largest not-for-profit organization serving adults with
  7. https://bisnow.com/houston/news/mixed-use/meet-the-new-neighbors-skanska-buys-four-parcels-near-the-houston-astros-101416 Not much new info, but here's the latest press release. Skanska purchased four parcels, including one full city block, altogether totaling roughly 152K SF adjacent to the award-winning Discovery Green park, boarded by the Houston Rockets’ Toyota Center, the George R. Brown Convention Center and the Houston Astros’ Minute Maid Park. Skanska’s plan is to develop a mix of office, multifamily and retail for the surrounding community. Skanska
  8. Glad to have you back and I'm sorry this happened.
  9. https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2019/10/18/bank-of-america-tower-developer-buys-downtown.html?iana=hpmvp_hstn_news_headline Skanska paid $55 million in total for the properties, which were sold by a private citizen, according to an Oct. 17 press release. The parcels total around 3.5 acres, and Skanska plans to develop a mix of office, multifamily and retail on the land. The press release does not identify where exactly the parcels are located, but a spokesperson for Skanska confirmed that one of the parcels is a full city block bordered by Dallas, Lamar, LaBra
  10. It said it will open at 8AM on November 7th. Looks like they waited to do an official press release until exactly 1 month before. https://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Midtown-Whole-Foods-sets-opening-date-Nov-2019-14497915.php "The high-end grocer will launch at 515 Elgin Street at 8 a.m. on Nov. 7, according to a Monday release."
  11. I saw on Instagram that the Whole Foods has a November 7th opening date.
  12. Yes, it definitely should! I don’t know how it ended up in this thread. My mistake.
  13. Updated downtown development map. https://www.downtownhouston.org/media/uploads/attachments/2019-07-29/190729_Development_Map__Renders_11X17.pdf
  14. Just for reference, Market Square Tower is a seven minute walk to POST. Lyric Market is a five minute walk.
  15. It’s something new and I appreciate that. I will definitely attend and support Houston’s version of a Grand Central Market.
  16. As part of the Main Street improvements, they took up all the sidewalks on Main and made them narrower than the original sidewalks. The landscaping looks great, but it does not justify reducing the width of the sidewalks.
  17. I drove by yesterday and thought I saw the west portion of the plaza had the rings flush with the brick pavers.
  18. Nicely done for a self-storage building. Looks like they are trying to be architecturally sensitive to the growing residential neighborhood.
