  1. S'long as there's no roosters, they're good.....
  2. I was under the impression that this project was shot down by COH Planning Commission late last year. Issues with traffic, mostly. In their proposal, cars would exit the "tunnel" at 18th and then have to turn left to get back onto the lot to the "free" vacuums. Also they cant enter directly from Shepherd because of scheduled bike lane.
  3. Permits seem to show some hold-ups with the fire sprinklers.
  4. Supposedly the Heights Blvd brick was installed only after they tried using wood blocks, twice, for paving. Tight grained SYP, in the vertical, and with some kind of chemical treatment, could withstand the kind of traffic they had back then. Maybe the blocks floated away, dunno.
  5. No. 20' clearance from a fence. I guess there are still a few places that don't have a fence at the alley, but most do.
  6. This for the Heights. Don't know if this applies to Montrose. https://www.houstontx.gov/planning/HistoricPres/Design_Guide_Heights_District/Feb6/Houston-Heights-DG_Section5-Feb2018.pdf
  7. What about Booker T? They have a brand new campus a short run up Yale from the Heights. Am I missing something?
  8. FWIW, I've looked at a lot of permits (especially as related to flips being sold), and its very common for the "final" not to closed out. Doesn't seem to bother anyone.
  9. An article below, from the Economist last year about gentrification myths. I remember Montrose when you couldn't walk around at night for fear of being robbed, when burglaries and car thefts and gunfire were common. And folks thought nothing of parking vehicles on their front lawn. The link seems to work. I don't have an online subscription. https://www.economist.com/united-states/2018/06/21/in-praise-of-gentrification
  10. Aliana is building an over-55 "luxury" development in Richmond. It advertises as welcoming Indian Americans. It does state that all nationalities and cultures are welcome. This looks like a "Federal Seven" violation based on national origin, like saying "close to kosher deli" or "Norwegian-Americans welcome." Someone explain to me otherwise. www.tajresidences.com https://blog.chron.com/storystudio/2018/05/aliana-welcomes-new-55-plus-luxury-community-for-indian-americans/
  11. I've seen shiplap at the Historic Houston warehouse for sale, if anyone has a need. http://www.historichouston.org/salvage-warehouse.html
  12. The zone of interest at the back, if anyone is interested. Taken around 2012.
  13. Nancy Sarnoff (H Chronicle) podcast interviews here, with Bill Baldwin of the antis, and Scott McClelland of HEB.... http://loopedin.libsyn.com/
  14. Trulia has a crime heatmap. No big surprises. http://www.trulia.com/local/77002/tiles:1|points:1_crime
  15. Brr that is cold. The dew point is occurring in the subfloor. You could try adding fiberglass batts under the floor and move the dew point away from the wood. Or seal off the crawl space and condition it. The minisplit if running most of the time should dehumidify the room properly. If short-cycling, its way oversized and doesn't run long enough to take the moisture out (in the room). Or add heat strips under the subfloor, or install one of those New England circulating warm water floors. Internet reviews don't usually address gulf coast moisture problems properly.
