  1. Crane base has been placed. Yellow, if you were wondering.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. Hate to be that guy, but... source?? This seems extremely hard to believe given United's complete disregard for IAH in the past few years. Every other hub has gotten multiple new international routes and domestic routes, while we've gotten... Spokane and Ontario?? Don't get me wrong, I would be ecstatic if this happened and hopefully you have some awesome insider info, but I'll believe it when I see it.
  5. Cranes came down this week. Hopefully the Bowen and 4411 San Felipe cranes replace them soon.
  6. Weirdly enough, that's also the only location I've ever tried. I was similarly disappointed, but I have a feeling it's not just that store. Those fries 🤮
  7. I'm sure the new space will be great, but this is kind of disappointing for me... Conservatory is my favorite place in Houston and it's a great place to start a night downtown. EaDo is less convenient/exciting imo, though I guess there's a lot of cool stuff around there as well so maybe it's not the end of the world.
  8. Fencing has gone up along San Felipe
  9. Best player in Astros history? Top 5 Houston athlete ever? Pretty hard to argue against either at this point.
  10. Looks like it's just about topped out, except for the bit on the south portion that sticks up above the 15th floor (per the rendering).
  11. Some of the more recent rumors include Air India to Delhi, TAP to Lisbon, and China Eastern (I think?) to Shanghai. I would imagine at some point in the future we would get Seoul service again from one of the Korean airlines, and maybe one of the other European Star Alliance partners like Austrian Airlines to Vienna, Swiss to Zurich, or Brussels Airlines to... Brussels.
  12. Is there any way the electrical/power station or whatever that's on block 277 can be moved/demolished anytime soon? Not sure how essential it is to the power grid in that location. It seems like a major waste of space, though I guess with all the surface lots around that area it's easier to start with those. Still, it's not ideal to see when walking from Discovery Green to Toyota Center.
  13. Damn that's not good. I always wonder how this type of thing doesn't happen more often with these incredibly complex large construction sites, since there are so many people working on them. I don't have much knowledge at all of the industry, but you would think that with hundreds of people working, there have to be at least one or two that are careless or don't do their job properly (as with basically occupation). Maybe one of our construction experts can provide a brief explanation on the oversight etc that keeps this everything done properly in the vast majority of the cases. PS this particular building has been going up for a long time I think, I've been to New Orleans a bunch over the past few years and I'm pretty sure I remember it being significantly above ground already about two years ago, but all the Bourbon Street nights may be clouding my memory a little bit. Doubt that has anything to do with the collapse, but it seems like a Block 334-esque pace.
  14. This one is flying up. Really fast progress. Not sure if there is a known delivery date, but vertical construction might be done before the end of the year at this rate.
  15. Glass is going up on the east side. Unfortunately the app I use to compress photos so they fit on here is making everything blurry right now so no photo at this moment
