  1. More renovations coming, this time to righ field second deck. https://ballparkdigest.com/2019/08/02/minute-maid-park-upgrades-on-tap/
  2. Cause for concern? https://twitter.com/nsarnoff/status/1088506949921136640?s=21

  5. This project would help that end of McGowen. I used to live on this block along Bremond and the green space was prime target for area crackheads (until the white house at the middle of the block finally flipped). Not sure what the neighborhood is like now... If this empty patch flipped, the last real open lot is across Austin (along McGowen).
  6. Austin has its first professional sports franchise. Austin FC will begin play in 2021. Cheers to future Houston Dynamo road trips to ATX. https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2019/01/15/austin-fc-begin-mls-play-2021-leagues-27th-club
  7. Considering the the amount of leases Brookfield let expire causing closures, I’d say a renovation of the Park Shops is still likely. But I am surprised at the lack of details on this side of the project. Also, in the below render, you can see a sliver of the Park Shops, which looks to be at least reclad in a new material. The squared up design is similar to the renders on the Gibran Villalobos site.
  8. Per Sarnoff - an announcement on the empty Bud’s space expected next week. But it another space has opened up: McAlister’s closed up shop. https://www.chron.com/entertainment/restaurants-bars/article/McAlister-s-Deli-closes-at-Avenida-Houston-13514969.php
  9. The wait might be over. Fertitta was in negotiations with the NHL over the Coyotes as recently as this month. https://twitter.com/markbermanfox26/status/1072553119706427392?s=21 Now AZ sports radio reporting a sale is imminent. And then hen there’s this tweet from the Sr Policy Advisor for the Mayor of Phoenix. https://twitter.com/thetonymotola/status/1075904388302962688?s=21
  10. Stadium deal done and lease officially signed. Austin will soon have an MLS team, by 2020 or 2021. https://www.kvue.com/article/news/local/precourt-sports-ventures-to-pay-for-multi-million-dollar-major-league-soccer-stadium-in-austin/624119026
  11. Insteadc the put the multistory sky dancers on another building. I’d be down for letting the building become Houston’s version of 5 Pointz or Graffiti Park. Let Gonzo247 & other local artists go wild with the entire building as their canvas.
  12. Updated renders and model of Globe Life Field. Honestly not a fan of this design. For $1.2 billion, hometown architect HKS & the Rangers could’ve come up with a better design then a retro version Marlins Park. https://twitter.com/globelifefield/status/1067480024519979008?s=21 https://twitter.com/krldandrewg/status/1067470800457003009?s=21
  13. Hell yeah. A Blue Wave in this city at the polls might finally lead to a Blue Line train at last. With McNair’s The Post Oak development coming, I’d definitely run the Blue Line in its originally planned alignment voters in this city approved - right through Afton Oaks. Traffic on 59 is bad enough already. If Metro is serious about increasing ridership, they’ll do the full Blue Line, maybe even tie it into the planned Hobby extension (instead of 2 lines to Hobby)
  14. Does Lina Hidalgo’s upset win over Ed Emmett put the Dome renovation in any jeopardy now? Or are we too far down the line, given County Commissionsers prior approval? https://www.chron.com/news/politics/houston/article/Harris-County-Commissioners-Court-OKs-105M-plan-12610107.php
  15. http://houston.culturemap.com/news/city-life/10-08-18-toyota-center-turns-15-houston-rockets-tilman-fertitta-tad-davis-houston-astros-jim-crane/ What would you like to see done with the arena during the major overhaul?!? For me, I would like to see rooftop bar spaces for the upper deck sections and SRO with a view of the event floor below. This has been a trend with venues lately (MSG Skybridge, Fiserv Forum’s Panaroma Club, etc). IMO this could be added to Toyota Center at the top of each of the 4 structural roof support structures at the corners of the arena. Previously, the roof support columns have been a dead area of the venue. In recent years, they’ve been backlit by LED lighting so clearly they’re trying to do something with this dead area (see Astros CF renovation) An example: T-Mobile Arena’s rooftop bars.
