  1. This is so disingenuous. There will be ZERO added traffic on Wroxton Court, and I really have a hard time believing that the traffic on Bissonnet will be significantly worse, especially considering there were apartments here before (as has been frequently noted in this thread). I don't know if it's a property value issue, or that they just don't want a high rise in their backyard because of privacy or views or whatever... but this is almost right in the center of Houston, there's going to be density whether they like it or not. I can see several high rises from my backyard (in a significantly less dense area of town), and you don't see me crying about it.
  2. This is actually a different building that’s not technically in CityCentre (it’s on the other side of Queensbury). Town Center One is 10-ish floors and has Microsoft and some other offices, and there’s been a sign and rendering in the adjacent lot for years saying “Town Center Two coming summer 2020”. I assumed it was dead, but maybe not? Surprised yet another office building is moving forward in this market, with the one next to the McKinley restarting construction recently and CityCentre Seven supposedly starting soon (and CityCentre Six also in the pipeline).
  3. A lot of those could theoretically fit, but I will literally go streaking on the field at Minute Maid Park during an Astros game if it was a Six Senses
  4. That Google Maps photo is of 6810 S Fry Road in Katy, but it sounds like the development is at 6810 Fry Road in Cypress, just south of FM 529.
  5. The brewery itself is a cool spot, but the beers are pretty average imo
  6. That might be true about Neiman Marcus, which does feel pretty elitist (not unexpected for a Dallas company after all)... but I don't think that's the case with Nordstrom. It's an awesome store with great customer service and it doesn't really feel obnoxious at all. If anything I'd throw Saks in that former camp before Nordstrom.
  7. Per the unlikeliest of sources (Swoon Memorial magazine), the hotel flag will be an AC Hotel by Marriott.
  8. Does anyone know what's going on here? Not sure if this is the best thread for this, but there was a replat notice for the March 31 meeting for the old Goode Co Seafood building that was demolished and the building where the new location is next door to create one large plat (I believe, I'm not sure how to find it on the planning commission website). In that building the Vitamin Shoppe already closed and was emptied out, Kolache Factory closed today, and Smoothie King is closing next week. It seems pretty fast to close and demolish it after Goode Co Seafood relocated over there, but I wonder if a larger development is planned?
  9. I didn't realize they were using the old Fry's Electronics building. It's a good 10-15 minutes from the spaceport.
  10. It sure looked like a tower crane was going up here today. I was kind of far away so couldn’t confirm that it was here, but I don’t know where else it could have been
  11. Signage is up for the buildout for Blue Nile the jewelry store (not the Ethiopian restaurant). It's going in one of the corner spots by the main elevators in the center of the Galleria; I believe it was the old Dior space before they moved to River Oaks District, but I'm not positive.
  12. I meant more culturally/neighborhood-speaking I guess, since he was saying he wasn't familiar with the area. Either way, cool to have a Shake Shack coming.
  13. Even though the address is technically Houston, this is definitely still the Katy area. Basically once you get west of Highway 6 (or certainly west of Barker Cypress) it's Katy.
  14. Yup, definitely the Post Oak/San Felipe location. They showed external shots with the surface level parking, and at the end of that segment you could see the new Aspire apartment tower in the background
  15. Per this Chronicle article: "DC Partners declined to name the retail tenants, but state permitting documents suggest New Evolution Fitness, a company started by two former 24 Hour Fitness executives, is planning to open in the project. Permits describe a roughly 37,000-square-foot fitness center opening in spring 2022." https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/real-estate/article/Sweeping-views-unique-design-marks-35-story-16777118.php#photo-21920152
  16. I went once 3 or 4 years ago when I used to commute to and from Galveston. It was pretty decent, even if it felt like it was in the middle of nowhere (though admittedly I'm not very familiar with the Pearland area). I'm a bit surprised that smaller breweries like this one, Wicked Boxer (Cypress), Fortress (Spring), etc.. have made it through the pandemic thus far. I guess once the initial investment in all the equipment is made, the overhead is relatively low in these presumably very low-rent suburban office/industrial parks. The more breweries the better though!
  17. Was just thinking that the old Sheraton looked pretty bad, glad to see they'll be tearing it down. Though this rendering is much less appealing than CityCentre Six.
  18. Are we sure this is Blue Nile the Ethiopian restaurant and not Blue Nile the diamond company? Maybe I missed it and it said restaurant somewhere, but the jewelry store would seem to make a lot more sense for the Galleria.
  19. Awesome! It's been weird seeing it just sitting there with the first above ground floor poured and rebar sticking out for months. Also they were putting up signage on the top of the east face of the residential high-rise this morning, looked pretty good but they only had "McK" when I drove by so we'll see how the whole thing looks.
  20. Some renderings in this article from the Chronicle... https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/real-estate/article/Post-Oak-retail-center-slated-for-makeover-in-16311698.php#photo-21230823
  21. This has already been open for a bit and I am so glad to have one nearby, best chocolate cookies I've ever had
  22. Maybe I'm just used to the much more intricate F1 layouts, but that seems like a pretty lame race track (as far as turns go; a Downtown Houston race would be awesome to watch for the location/scenery).
