  1. Check this out: http://metrosolutions.org/go/doc/1068/179006/ Looks like we dont have to worry too much about BRTs kids----Metro, using new FTA guidelines, just switched its plan to just start of with LRT right away. I say this is awesome.
  2. I was reading this thread by chance, for a story I am writing. Though I live in NYC, my home will always be Houston. I just wanted to respond to Poppahop's response - his "Who Cares" about everything regarding fine and performing arts. First, you say this does not matter? TO YOU. I personally enjoying taking in a show or play. I also love art exhibits, and so do all my friends. Obviously there are different tastes running the gamut and the point of a great city is to provide entertainment, culture, and opportunities for all interests and walks of life. Just because YOU don't know anyon
  3. Are you insane?! 700-800K is like adding San Antonio to the Houston population. That figure makes no sense at all when you take into account that the high estimates for illegal immigrants entering the US annually is 1,600,000. No way Houston gets half of those.
  4. Well, I lived in L.A. for 5 years (im now in NYC) and I've flown into these airports, which are in the vicinity: LAX, Burbank, Ontario, John Wayne, Long Beach, and Santa Monica. THere seems to be several smaller ones as well. What about expanding Ellington Field?
  5. You know that when they say that Phoenix grew by 45% versus an 25% growth in Houston, that still means we grew faster or at the same rate because we have more people and in raw numbers one is not neccessarily beating the other---I think we are growing in line with each other. In fact, percentages put aside, southern and western cities are growing at pretty comparable rates. Also, in terms of competition between size and growth of cities---I think it is important that we care because the bigger and more impressive our population and population growth, the more that developers, advertisers, com
  6. Wow, I didn't know that this thread would start such a discussion! First, I would like to say that Sean Jean is divided between the cheap urban-style line and the newer, ridiculously more expensive couture line, so in that case, it will definately appeal to Houston residents, especially those shopping in the Galleiia and visitors as well. Second, L.A. and New York have much better looking women, with an emphasis on L.A. Think about one thing, most of the most beautiful women (and men for that matter), if they know that this is a major quality in them, will seek out places where they can gain
  7. What? Sean John is so Houston---like any other urban area, it will definately be a hit. Now if you were to say Dolce&Gabbana, now that is a harder sell to a conservative city like Houston. Any news about the Carolina Herrera store? I know that the Galleria website has job postings for the brand, but I don't know anything further.
  8. Does anyone have any info on the new Galleria stores opening up soon? I heard there was a Carolina Herrera store, a Michael Kors store, and also a Sean John store? I live in L.A. and I am writing an article about the Houston cultural change and this is a part of my article. If anyone has any info that would help me out. Also, what is gonna happen to the Lord and Taylor spot?
  9. I am now living in Los Angeles, but on a recent trip to Houston, I saw the difference in retail outlets in the Galleria and even Highland Village. Both places have gotten pretty big chains and specialty stores, like Burberry, Dior, Bose, Jimmy Choo, and Luca Luca. Although most people don't care for this, since it is outside of most people's reach, I work in this industry, doing marketing for luxury brands, and I know that stores moving into a city at this pace signifies growth and confidence that the city is chic enough and diversified enough to open shop. In Houston, there have been 13 s
