  1. Just wanted to get the word out. If anyone is interested Saturday night June 1st our trio TinNight, is performing. No cover. This is our maiden performance and would love for some of you to come and check it out. Rehab bar on the Bayou. 1658 Enid Street It backs up to Little White Oak. 9:00 - 12:00. This is just south of 610 and just west of 45 Hopefully some of you younger HAIFERS will come out and support. I don't know if many of my old buddies will still be up. Thanks

    Where Am I?

    You should do this once week. It's a good exercise.
  3. Richard Payne, was an exceptional architectural photographer. He worked with many of the great architects photographing their buildings. He was the photographer for one of the last books written about Phillip Johnson. Richard passed away recently, and he is being honored and remembered with an exhibition of his last personal projects. This should be a very interesting exhibit featuring downtown and the people who live there. Richard was a dear man, and will be missed. Architecture Seen: Downtown Houston and the People Who Live There Opening Reception Thursday May 23, 2019 6-8pm Houston Public Library, Julia Ideson Building 550 McKinney St. Exhibition dates: May 18, 2019 - August 10,

  5. So looking at dbigtex with 4200 his avatar is the ferris wheel. So I guess 4000 is the Ferris Wheel.
  6. Update: The Weingarten Estate is up for sale. Unfortunately, they left windows and doors open for over a year, and I can't imagine how much water damage has taken place. It was also revealed that there is a family cemetery on the property created by the original landowners.
  7. I'm not aware of this but it is a wonderful site. What is NCAR?
  8. Did the demo company offer to put up all of the residents of the Hogg Palace this weekend in the Marquis?
  9. This is really sad. To look at their early renderings and a neighborhood of 10 -15 story buildings in a mixed use development reduced to two story stucco apartment buildings is really disappointing. They could have left the old apartments that were there and it would be about the same and much lower rents for a while longer.
  10. We lost a great architect today. I. M. Pei passed today. He still owns the record for the tallest building in Texas. When designed it was known as the Texas Commerce bank Building. Now the Chase. Quite a few of the late twentieth century giants have recently passed.
  11. Houston Chronicle today Direct quotes from chief financial officer https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/energy/article/Oxy-CEO-on-Anadarko-We-were-not-going-to-let-it-13837034.php Occidental’s Chief Financial Officer Cedric Burgher specifically mentioned cutting jobs and selling real estate and Anadarko’s fleet of four corporate jets as means of cost reductions. “We don’t think we need all of those (jets), and we can reduce that along with, obviously, people and duplicate offices and real estate,” Burgher said Monday in a conference call, although he didn’t specifically cite anything in The Woodlands.
  12. What will happen to all of the Anadarko properties. It sounds like they will be selling several of their jets and letting go of many of their employees. I'm guessing no more Anadarko tower projects and perhaps they sell off one of their Woodlands towers since one of the executives quoted in the announcements today that they would be letting go of many assets and employees to make up some of the costs of buying Anadarko's Permian basin rights which is pretty much all they wanted. I'd hate to be working for Anadarko right now and not knowing where you'll be in three months. I'm sure The Woodlands is a little nervous about their tax base and the loss of employees that will probably relocate. It's also interesting that both Anadarko and Oxy's stock went down, and Chevrons went up.
  13. Your right there is a site for a restaurant pad. They might still be looking for a concept to interject their own architecture and haven't worked out a lease yet. Just speculating.
