  1. A sign has gone up in the vacant lot at the 3400-ish block of the eastbound Katy Freeway frontage road (between the Shell Station and the vape lounge), heralding that Russo's Brewing Co. (est. 2019) is coming soon. Can any of our talented Heights HAIF investigators dig up any scoop?
  2. Good news, but too bad they couldn't have gotten it while they were doing the JW construction. I seem to recall media reports indicating that the hotel developers made offers but couldn't reach a deal. My own wild speculation is that they have some contingencies drawn up for back-of-the-house uses for it. Agree parking seems like an impossibility. If nothing else, a refresh of street-side face should be on the way, and long overdue.
  3. Finn is also directly across the street from the JW Marriott and the under-construction AC Marriott, and one block from the Club Quarters, to augment its dinner/bar business.
  4. Any guesses as to the "celebrated barbecue house reborn"???
  5. Whoa. Had seemed to be turning over tables okay the times that I've been in them recently. Might be some macro issues going on at the corporate level: http://swamplot.com/pi-pizza-starfish-lease-lockouts-hit-both-ends-of-the-heights-blvd-strip-by-the-bayou/2018-08-02/
  6. Dinner crowds will be supplemented by the JW Marriott directly across Rusk, and the under-construction AC Marriott directly across Main.
  7. You're building a brand new, "premium" RV park. You've got hundreds of acres of land in a pine forest. So, naturally, of course, you . . . clear cut and bulldoze the site. Not a piece of shade to be had. There weren't five or six pines on the site that wouldn't be in the way of your concrete pour or utilities trenching?? Crank up the rooftop a/c on your Jayco, brother, because you're going to need it come July. . .
  8. Good for La Calle. The tacos are excellent (chilangos FTW) and the owner has always been a pleasant, gregarious host/cashier on my lunch visits there.
  9. This new spot looks very close to opening in the Bedford/Stella Sola/Black & White space on Studewood: https://www.maisonpucha.com/story/ Shepard Ross (formerly Glass Wall, currently Pax Americana) is consulting with them.
  10. The impending expansion of 59 as part of the downtown freeway reconfiguration may affect this property. No point starting construction of a hotel on land that's going to be acquired/condemned for freeway right of way.
  11. Does NRG still have a presence in the 1000 Main/former Reliant Energy Plaza that would be consolidated in One Shell?
  12. For what it's worth, "Regency Main" is the entity to whom tenants in 712 Main/The Jones cut their rent checks. I'm speculating they are building the garage to provide tenant parking.
  13. There's a Q&A happy hour Wednesday 7/12 at Heights Bier Garten. https://www.facebook.com/events/2067562386602546/?active_tab=discussion The Heights Swim Club has already birthed a neighborhood swim team, the Heights Hammerheads, that just wrapped their first season at the Love Park swimming pool: https://www.htxhammerheads.org/about My family is signed up, along with currently 81 other families. There is no financial commitment until the real estate is identified. The target demographic seems to be families with children that are stuck between deciding to spend the capex and opex to build a postage stamp-sized pool in their back yard, or paying to join a pool outside the neighborhood (e.g., Afton Village). For those long-time residents that remember the old Garden Cove Swim Club on Fisher Street in Garden Oaks, the Heights Swim Club is looking to roughly replicate that setup. http://gardencoveswimclub.com/

    Is this the lot just west of Berryhill, perhaps? There is an old "lease space coming soon" on it that's been there for years.
  15. La Michoacana already sells beer. I've had occasion to pick up a cheap, cold six-pack of tall boys to go with deliciously-marinated fajita meat and crispy chicharrones, whereupon I immediately transported my quarry to, and consumed it in, the Dry Heights.
