  1. For example, Delilah’s in Philly is a strip club that Ben Simmons may have visited after getting kicked out of Sixers practice yesterday. Delilah has great timing lol
  2. This infuriates me. As a nearby resident who’s live in the area for the last decade, Rice’s involvement has cleaned up a once seedy part of town. Where was the “The Houston Coalition for Equitable Development Without Displacement” when this area was a shantytown? This isn't about gentrification. This is a shakedown for free benefits when they haven’t done shit previously.
  3. I believe this will be the site of the long rumored 103 story W Hotel & residences. It’ll have a spire on top and should be a game changer for the Telephone Rd development corridor
  4. Georgia James/Hay Merchant relocating from 1100 Westheimer to Regent Square in 2022. https://houston.culturemap.com/news/restaurants-bars/08-31-21-georgia-james-steakhouse-new-location-regent-square-hay-merchant-closing-underbelly-hospitality-chris-shepherd/?fbclid=IwAR1VgNZ_s79QbvSET47M40WYrOeFCtUQlNvGd5176yeGl1zxGO3wyTBjIKA
  5. New project by Austin’s Bunkhouse Group. They’ve previously done El Cosmico (Marfa), Hotel San Jose & Hotel Saint Cecila (Austin), Hotel Havana (San Antonio), and Hotel Phoenix (San Francisco) Unlike their past projects, this will be new construction adjacent to the Menil. Opens Fall 2023 https://www.houstonchronicle.com/lifestyle/home-design/article/Austin-s-hip-Bunkhouse-group-plans-cool-hotel-16378230.php?utm_campaign=socialflow&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=referral&fbclid=IwAR3CHIF3EC16GTTokNUWNNBS75uNJb49cMiUOT-7MOuC-x5f_mQamjy9UKQ
  6. NRG Park has NRG Stadium, a convention center and an arena all on its footprint. All that’s missing is a hotel/mixed use component. Compare that to Texas Live, which will have all of the above. If the SkyDome can have a hotel within its stadium walls, I don’t see why the Astrodome can’t either. If St. Louis can convert an old train shed into a mixed use/hotel development, I don’t see why the Astrodome can’t be converted either. I think some of you are simply selling the potential of this short
  7. Met Olschner during the last Dome Conservancy call. He had the interior of his dome park concept as the virtual background, which was cool. There’s just 2 problems with this idea: Problem 1: Problem 2: The NRG Park tenants (Texans & Rodeo) also have to sign off on this. A Dome Park would take away areas where they could make revenues from parking at the very least. The park itself also takes a chunk of the lots the Rodeo uses to stage its events. Not sure why so many miss the simple point that this project also has to appeal to the tenants. With that in mind, my idea to the Dome Conservancy focused on that very point. Sports franchises are building stadiums with mixed use development attached. SoFi Stadium and the surrounding LASED development on the old Hollywood Park site and Lambeau Field’s Titletown complex are the latest examples. The Jaguars are also following suit with the Jacksonville Shipyards development. The Astros are about to do the same at the Home Plate BBQ site. Why can’t this happen within the walls of the Astrodome? It makes sense IMO. A mixed use development that both the Texans and the Rodeo can draw additional revenue from during events & year round is an idea they would likely sign off on. And since the NFL likes to reward cities for investment by granting Super Bowl hosting duties, which we’ve been a direct beneficiary of in 2004 (construction of Reliant Stadium) and 2017 (NRG Stadium renovation), maybe an Astrodome renovation into a year round mixed use development might be enough to lure another Super Bowl to town, in addition to the World Cup and Final Four. Competition to host large events that pull in millions in revenue is getting stiff, with AT&T Stadium in North Texas, Allegiant Stadium in Vegas and now SoFi in LA. A Dome mixed use development allows us to remain competitive
  8. Don’t mean to be a Debbie downer but I sent the Post HTX folks this idea back in April (see below) and never heard back. I even sent them my post from this thread and the follow up responses. It makes too much sense not to do it. We all can see it, they apparently don’t have the vision or foresight to think that far ahead…
  9. Polk St/ The Tenderloin is anything but an urban dream. That’s urban decay. I love SF but like every city, it undeniably has its own issues. Sidewalks work there when you have the microclimate to keep things cool and comfortable. Here in Houston, not so much. Also there is the fact that the peninsula is only 49 square miles compared to our sprawling city. What I would like to take from SF is implementing Muni trains on heavier trafficked thoroughfares inside the loop like Montrose, Westheimer, Shephard/Durham, etc. Not sure how much cost savings there are from repurposing old trains from Eastern Europe but it could be a cheaper way to get more mass transit routes.
  10. This angle. The angles of the new triangular atrium play nicely with the sculpture. Will look better once fully landscaped.
  11. Anyone know what’s up with the Municipal Courts (Lubbock)? I thought there was a plan for the city to relocate municipal to 800 Bell and sell the land on Lubbock?
  12. Actually, I think the replacement for Bayou Music Center is the The Terminal at Post HTX, which will also be a Live Nation venue. I think “new venue” might be intended for the symphony if they chose to leave Jones Hall for new digs. If they stay at Jones Hall (which I’m in favor of due to its history), the Bayou Place tract becomes all mixed use development. This is the only explanation I see for the different ZC renders. https://zieglercooper.com/projects/bayou-place/
  13. Now if we can only light up the crown with LED lighting, along with 609 Main. Still hate that only a small portion of 609 Main’s crown is lit instead of the full blade. Why can’t this city light up its skyline better?
  14. 108 Main (formerly Cottonmouth Club) will be a new nightclub from the owner of Etro. The name will be Pris.
