  1. Crane went up today. Guess they didn’t have to wait for the weekend since there’s no traffic right now EDIT: ugh sorry sideways
  2. It's amazing how much faster this is going up than Alexan River Oaks just down the street. They started construction roughly the same time a little over a year ago, and this one is nearing full vertical completion (for a larger building!), while Alexan is barely on the second floor. Strange.
  3. I always thought the "DELIVERING MARCH 2020" signs seemed a bit ambitious, but I guess that's not too far off. They've planted the trees on the deck above the parking garage and the construction elevator has come down so the last sections of glass should be going in soon, guessing the crane may come down in the next couple of weekends.
  4. Don't think it's related to this project, but it was the closest one I could find a thread for: does anyone know what is going up at I-10 and Upland next door to the Grove apartments? I can't recall seeing anything about this site, but they have been working there for a few months and there are now several ~5 story elevator shafts built, looks like more apartments but wouldn't surprise me if it was another storage place or something.
  5. Starting to peek through in this photo of yesterday’s amazing sunset
  6. Is this still getting incentives from the Downtown Living Initiative (or whatever it was called) despite taking so long to start construction? If I recall correctly, this is the second-to-last one to get underway that originally qualified for the incentives (the last being the high rise NE of MMP, though that could be way off).
  7. So this is going where the Thermal Energy South Main Plant is?
  8. It’s one of the unserved destinations with the highest PDEW from Houston, but I think it would be the second longest flight in the world and with very little premium demand = it will almost definitely never happen. Certainly not before LAX.
  9. Any idea when this is supposed to be complete? United is cutting yet another destination from IAH (West Palm Beach), which may be partially due to the MAX/lack of aircraft, but people are saying that United are holding off on adding any meaningful service until the bag room is finished.
  10. Was in Asia recently, but I flew EVA Air on the way there and back. However, I did take Thai Airways from TPE - BKK and BKK - HKT. It is a pretty nice airline, though we were in business class on both segments (first time in my life!). Not as nice as EVA, or probably ANA/Singapore/etc. I would imagine it's better than Air China or Thai Air Asia. The food wasn't bad, though they were both early morning flights so it was breakfast, which is typically less adventurous I'd imagine. If you are a picky eater I would definitely pack some food (or at least some snacks), especially on Air China, as some of the other Asian airlines we flew had food that wasn't exactly friendly for particular palates. Have a great trip, Singapore is especially amazing!
  11. Crane base has been placed. Yellow, if you were wondering.
  12. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/transportation/article/Uptown-BRT-pushed-back-to-July-start-as-Metro-14984654.php Service start date pushed back to July. Elevated busway and Westpark transit station should finish by March, then three months of testing.
  13. Well that’s definitely encouraging, sorry to be a hater I’ve just been disappointed many times in the past few years. I was more skeptical about the Mumbai/Lagos routes, I don’t doubt the bag room is happening. Keep us posted with any info that you can share!
