  1. I think white will get boring, but I agree totally flashy is not needed. Perhaps keep all the tubes the same color, but have them change color once an hour (e.g, white from 9:00 to 10:00, blue from 10:00 to 11:00, green from 11:00 to 12:00, and so on).
  2. I have a hard time believing this got funding. Something like this could work in the middle of downtown or midtown, but this location is an island without any foot traffic. This will be less successful than Greenstreet.
  3. I think this is a ridiculous location and can't imagine it gets built. That said, some other nice hotels in the area aren't in exactly prime locations either--e.g., Houstonian, St. Regis, Omni. Granted these hotels are very different than a Hard Rock hotel.
  4. I went there about 10 years ago for physical therapy. Memorial Sports Clinic (formerly the Roger Clemens Sports Clinic) directed me there, so some arm of Memorial may have been leasing it.
  5. I think the location is great for the WF. They will get local folks of course, but I imagine they will get loads of people going home from work down Smith on the way to the spur.
  6. Another 12 years and the dream of Regent Square will be realized (or at least a significantly reduced dream).
  7. Sorry CrockpotandGravel. I guess I forgot that had been posted a few months ago. Thanks for being polite about it.
  8. Sounds to me like Antone's will be opening an outpost here too ("Legacy Restaurants, which owns the trademark to Antone's and its famous sandwiches, has updated its menu as it grows the brand that is expected to welcome a new store in the fall at 6618 Fannin in Texas Medical Center."): https://www.chron.com/entertainment/restaurants-bars/article/New-menu-items-at-Antone-s-Famous-Po-Boys-13822043.php?cmpid=hpctp
  9. 3333 Allen Parkway (The Royalton) was originally rental units, and then switched to condos after about five years.
  10. The deed restriction fight could be interesting. Doesn't seem they've been enforced since the current use of the site is not single-family use. I wonder if they are still enforceable.
  11. But presumably if Hanover wanted to expand, it could buy some or all of the Regent Square land. I think it's safe to assume that Regent Square as originally envisioned is never going to happen.
  12. Are they going to punch windows in the upper floors? I continue to believe that the lack of windows will make this a hard sell for 20-year old innovators (note that the buildings pictured above have tons of windows).
  13. No doubt young innovators will be drawn to a windowless 1940's building. . . . .
  14. The corner of Wheeler and Main had gotten better for about a year, but it is now back to being a huge homeless encampment again with addicts everywhere and garbage littering the street. An out-of-town guest drove by there over the weekend and commented that he couldn't believe the city allows a corner like that to exist. Hopefully Rice does something with the area soon.
  15. Back in the day, Berryhill Sunday's rocked (2006 time frame; start at La Strada, then to Berryhill around 4:00, then around 7:00 to wherever you could stumble to next). But that parking lot sucks, so unless the restaurant is really good, I'm driving to the next taco stand.
