  1. One thing they need to is renovate the Astrodome in time for the World Cup spotlight. This city/county simply cannot have an abandoned building sitting next to a World Cup venue. Do something now.
  2. “No need to oversell” Cmon man. It’s the friggin World Cup. Final Fours are nice. WrestleMania is too. Super Bowl LI (2017) alone brought in $347 million to our local economy for ONE FOOTBALL GAME The World Cup is the biggest sporting event worldwide and Houston will be hosting MULTIPLE matches, likely at least a Group Stage with potentially hosting additional knockout round matches for a global tournament that will be expanded (48 teams) in 2026. The revenue it might pump in to the local economy will eclipse any event this city has ever hosted in its entire history. It’s a global spotlight we’re fortunate to have. The city needs to capitalize on this massive opportunity.
  3. That might be the case but Houston, nor the US had the 2026 World Cup back in 2017. Landing hosting duties earlier this year likely changes things and might have revived this project. Maybe new ownership (Ted Segal) and its reinvestment into the Dynamo/Dash and PNC Stadium renovations possibly contributed as well. Their timeline clearly state’s community engagement meetings begin in January so we’ll see. The other linear park on Bastrop (East End Promenade) you speak of has long been completed, albeit at a scaled down version from the original vision.
  4. Never heard of Immersive Gamebox but they’re joining too https://immersivegamebox.com/locations/coming-soon/houston-center-houston-tx/#booking
  5. Crane owns part of 119 after the city abandoned Chenevert through the site. The ballpark mixed use development at the Home Plate site (161 + 119) would help serve as the connection to the Convention Center area. The only block undeveloped remaining would be the super block of 120 & 100. Edit: Crane might also own block 27 where the South Texas Intermediate Halfway House was recently demolished 2nd Edit: Crane also own the Jackson Street BBQ site on Block 115. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/food-culture/restaurants-bars/article/Downtown-s-Jackson-Street-BBQ-closes-after-8-16991784.php
  6. The Mix never got built (except for Pearl at The Mix on Travis, disjointed from the other two Pearls on Elgin). Both Mix sites are across Elgin from each other. Like one big project with 2 phases. Would’ve been nice if built.
  7. This is confusing as that building already had renovations recently completed. I pass by it every day. The ground floor is ready for build out wherever it’s leased. Has a nice center court view you can see from the street. Would make a nice spot for a restaurant.
  8. Artisan’s leaving Midtown (The Mix) for the Galleria area https://houston.culturemap.com/news/restaurants-bars/prominent-midtown-restaurant-plans-artful-move-to-iconic-galleria-area-eatery-s-shuttered-space/?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=dlvr.it

  10. Pretty certain. Ballpark Village is south side of the park. West would be along Crawford and the Astros had this plot along with the old halfway house plot directly across Crawford from where this activity is on going. They’ve got parcels to do something with so I wouldn’t be surprised if there was another project separate from the ballpark village.
  11. Avenida De Las Americas is a mouthful. Could rename it to Richard Kinder Blvd. Or you rename the Downtown portion of Dallas Street too to avoid confusion with W Dallas St. But that might more work with changing addresses than renaming ADLA.
  12. Wouldn’t be the first idea come to reality. In 2018, I tweeted out an idea for a rooftop brewery. Eventually Michelob Ultra deck was built.
  13. Could be something larger. On a DM with Mike Acosta:
  14. Tilman was already quoted back in 2018 as they were looking at major renovations. The pandemic probably held that up but I would have to figure soon we’ll hear something about this, especially with the Astros ballpark village plans on the horizon. https://houston.culturemap.com/news/city-life/10-08-18-toyota-center-turns-15-houston-rockets-tilman-fertitta-tad-davis-houston-astros-jim-crane/?utm_source=sf_twitter
  15. It’s cool to see supertalls going up in Texas once again after a such a long hiatus but that’s one ugly ass building. People get paid to design this shit? Woof
  16. Campesino is expanding here. They’re in the process of renovations to the old Hubcap space currently
  17. Conceptual video of the University BRT line.
  18. Given TCR’s status on life support, what are the chances another company, say Brightline, steps in a takes over this project?
  19. Not exactly. This is NOT the Greyhound bus station but the old building across the street, although it provides bus service too. The Greyhound bus station specifically needs to go. And no more TDC prisoner drop offs there either.
  20. The agreement Crane has with the city is only for the home plate site on Texas @ ADLA. This site will be a mixed used ballpark development project. Not sure what Crane’s plans are for the other parcels of land he owns around the ballpark.
