  1. Glad to see some positive development in this part of town. Bethune Empowerment Center Revitalization Project breaks ground in Acres Homes An 8-acre tract of land which previously housed the Bethune Academy Elementary School at 2500 S Victory Dr. is being repurposed as a business incubator and vocational center for the Acres Home neighborhood, according to a press release from the Mayor’s Office... An offshoot of the Acres Home Complete Community Action Plan, the Bethune Empowerment Center will offer job training, apprenticeships, skill-building services, small business resources, co-working spaces, and business incubators... The Bethune Empowerment Center will consist of ten buildings which will be renovated in three phases. Phase 1, comprising approximately 29,000 square feet, includes the renovation of the school’s cafeteria building into a commercial kitchen space and event space that allows for business development, agricultural training, certification, and other culinary arts programming. The remainder of Phase 1 will include a community garden and several workspaces, including for-lease offices, conference rooms, administrative office space, breakroom areas and collaborative working spaces. Construction for Phase 1 will be complete by the end of 2021. Phases 2 and 3 will include additional offices for the business incubators, classrooms, early childhood daycare/after-school care, and conference rooms. https://www.theleadernews.com/real_estate/bethune-empowerment-center-revitalization-project-breaks-ground-in-acres-homes/article_0ef3c8b2-007b-11ec-b372-833b71c678d2.html
  2. The UFC started a fight week vlog series a while ago and UFC 265 is in Houston this weekend. There are some nice of downtown from 45 and Eleanor Tinsley park throughout the video.
  3. can we agree to call it Harmony House and not the stupid stick shack? stick shack sounds straight out of deliverance
  4. This is mostly in jest. The podiums might be ugly, but at least he gets things built.
  5. disappointing news https://www.click2houston.com/news/local/2021/07/13/ask-2-where-did-the-spires-on-top-of-that-houston-hospital-building-go/
  6. Is this related or a new project? https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Houston-council-OKs-12-5M-to-replace-low-income-16298924.php
  7. When it says the investment will be recovered, is that 2021 dollars or 2041 dollars? For example, $1 in May 2001 would be $1.52 in May 2021. So if that rate holds $40M now would be something like $91M in 20 years. (Someone please check the math)
  8. It's almost like ABC 13 reads this forum and is trying to stir up conversation. They titled the segment "Houston's own River Walk? See what's going up along Buffalo Bayou" here's a link the video - https://abc13.com/east-river-houston-buffalo-bayou-fifth-ward-mixed-use/10613983/
  9. I can't speak for Triton but will echo his sentiment. A more water-centric design is preferable to the back side of buildings and a pedestrian path. Ideally it would be developed more like the Riverwalk in San Antonio (pictured below). Having said that, I'll trust Midway and take this over the current field or allowing someone like Randall Davis to develop it...
  10. Looks like Cities Skylines Snowfall: Houston edition.
  11. unfortunately no designs are shown on their website - https://trademarkproperty.com/property-posts/memorial-city-mall/
  12. Correct. The demo permit is for 4730 Richmond (the old location). I was thrown off for a second as well.
  13. the worlds largest golf course. no greens only sand traps and water....
