  1. Cause for concern? https://twitter.com/nsarnoff/status/1088506949921136640?s=21

  4. 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).
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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)
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. The project has stalled, with no site decided upon. Coincidentally, the Missions played their final Texas League game. Next season, they’ll begin play in PCL, but in an outdated AA ballpark and no future plans. Both the Astros & Rangers have ended their affiliations with Fresno & Round Rock, with the Astros likely to sign a new affiliation agreement with Round Rock soon. The Rangers top target for affiliation is Nashville (4 year old ballpark, Nats also in play here) and San Antonio.
  16. How many Pearl’s is Midtown gonna have? Pearl on Travis, Pearl Midtown, Pearl Midtown West (Whole Foods), Pearl on Helena, now possibly another one?

    Please lock and merge with the Houston Press thread. This is that. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Houston-Press-building-to-be-demolished-13226584.php

    Block in between YMCA & 800 Bell. Noticed this lot was fenced off this afternoon, along Travis, Bell, and Peace. No parking here either. Anyone know what’s up?
  19. The wetlands/retention ponds could be a great idea, if done correctly. Does this supplant the earlier idea below of TXDOT constructing a South Canal as part of the 45 Reroute?
  20. ROW acquisition, design, and construction for North Canal were apart of bond election approved by voters last Saturday. https://abc13.com/work-begins-on-harris-co-flood-projects-after-$25-billion-vote/4080341/
  21. Fresh off approval from ATX City Council to finalize a stadium deal at McKalla Place, the team name has been named. Dynamo supporters, meet your newest instate soccer rivals: Austin FC https://twitter.com/mls2atx/status/1032430797469483009?s=21
  22. Idea: When the renovation is complete, host a car show in the Dome. https://twitter.com/thachadwick/status/1030711043121668096?s=21
  23. Can’t add a picture from a URL as dialog box is broken. Can’t edit posts because that dialog is box broken too. Tried on multiple browsers. Functionality is broken
  24. A multi-purpose venue? Could partner up with the other tenant (Texans) and have the venue be an indoor practice facility for training camp. Add HQ buildings for both HLSR & the Texans, maybe add a hotel, and some retail & restaurants near the Fannin South rail stop and you could turn this plot of land into The Star in Frisco. https://3q87le1gsko01ibim33e4wib-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/the-stars.jpg[/img]
