  1. 108 Main (formerly Cottonmouth Club) will be a new nightclub from the owner of Etro. The name will be Pris.
  2. The city should abandon Main St to vehicular traffic from Commerce to Ion District and Wheeler Station. The single lane with restricted turns is useless to traffic, especially with wide transit corridor streets paralleling Main St on both sides. The Midtown District had a nice idea of converting one lane to bike lane, the other into an expanded pedestrian promenade.
  3. Exactly. This is the perfect, centralized location and using the heavy rail already in place, commuter trains from a Post HTX train shed can easily branch out to many parts of the city. Go west to Cypress and Sugar Land or go North to IAH and Kingwood at the very least (haven’t fully explored all heavy rail in the area yet). This could be a game-changer just by jumpstarting commuter rail plans with a possible cost effective solution. And the real benefit is possibly transforming Post HTX into our own version Grand Central Station.
  4. Since Amtrak might be increasing service to Houston and we all now this city needs a better train station, with Post HTX being located close by, it lead me to an obvious idea: I’d like to see the Amtrak station moved to PostHTX, which would be a nicer location (compared to under a freeway overpass) and could still use the existing heavy rail tracks. Since the loading dock is being transformed into covered patio spaces, convert the loading dock area behind Post HTX into a European style train shed that can support Amtrak operations and connect directly to the food hall/shopping and collab
  5. Current Amtrak shack is located across the 45 overpass from PostHTX. I’d like to see the Amtrak station moved to PostHTX, which would be a nicer location (compared to under a freeway overpass) and could still use the existing heavy rail tracks. Since the loading dock is being transformed into covered patio spaces, convert the loading dock area behind Post HTX into a European style train shed that can support Amtrak operations and connect directly to the food hall/shopping and collaborative areas of Post HTX, adding a new audience to help support Post HTX growth and success. This provides
  6. No. The concert venue is in the northeast corner (purple area in sight plans for level 1 & 2) taking up both levels. This has been in the plans for a while. It’s been illustrated in past renders and the HBJ article makes note of the fact that negotiations between Lovett and LiveNation have been ongoing since 2018. Lovett has made no secret about Day For Night’s influence on the project, as well as using Printworks London & Kraftwerk Berlin as inspirations for the venue design. What this news coupled with the ZCA Bayou Place renders suggest to me Bayou Place Music Center’s days ar
  7. I agree with @Houston19514. This is a terrible take. 59-288 merger should see improvements from the fact that backups related to 45 north/Pierce Elevated are no longer there. Most bars there are east of St Emanuel and city documents show the deck park would be used for more development. Couple that with GRBCC’s plans to create an East End entrance and this project could easily bolster development here, better then what’s currently there now (a shitty overpass) The Pierce Elevated’s relocation to 59 shouldn’t cause any issues with west-cen

  9. Hope this suit doesn’t end up torpedoing funding of this project because I-45 needs help, especially the older sections from Quitman to the North Belt. I literally have a toll tag just to see my family and avoid driving in this mess. What this city really needs is right of way separated commuter trains to all the heavily populated suburbs, replacing the glorified commuter busses that clog our freeways and streets now. Give commuters a choice to use a high speed train that travels unimpeded by vehicular traffic, shaving long and frustrating commute times and they’ll go for it. For a spraw
  10. One step closer to an incredible parking lot: Train was moved yesterday. https://www.facebook.com/1717138895199170/posts/2848670668712648/?d=n
  11. Fulbright we know of for Block 250. What is the confidence level of Block 251 tower?
  12. Know what might help likely the Downtown Houston core? Closing down the sparsely used singular vehicle lanes on Main St and turning the ENTIRE 2.5 mile stretch, from Buffalo Bayou to the Ion Innovation District, into a pedestrian thoroughfare like Denver’s 16th St Promenade. Main St has a lot of promise with the bar district to the north in Market Sq, the CBD and Main St Sq, multi family units springing up in South Downtown, Midtown Park and Caydon’s multiple condo buildings going up, MATCH/Ensemble Theater with Mid Main, and the Ion Innovation District with Wheeler Station (and soo
  13. That’s the plan for SP 982: Restore to operational again. This according to the SP 982 Historical Group on FB
  14. Train (SP 982) is moving to 3405 Navigation on 2/28 https://www.facebook.com/1717138895199170/posts/2845499742363074/?d=n
