  1. Sorry CrockpotandGravel. I guess I forgot that had been posted a few months ago. Thanks for being polite about it.
  2. 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
  3. 3333 Allen Parkway (The Royalton) was originally rental units, and then switched to condos after about five years.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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).
  7. No doubt young innovators will be drawn to a windowless 1940's building. . . . .
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Lawsuit filed today by Total Site Inc. against Dolce Living Investments LLC; DLC at Midtown LLC; Ivor Krivor; Ruslan Krivoruchko; John Zagst; Dayle Middleton; Jonathan Coldea, Florida residents: "Defendants owe plaintiff more than $1.1 million for water mitigation equipment and installation services."
  11. Drove by yesterday and was not impressed. This looks like a cheap 1990's wrap apartment in the middle of Katy.
  12. FYI regarding cars that merge at the last moment (spoiler alert, studies show it is significantly more efficient for everyone): http://auto.howstuffworks.com/traffic-lane-zipper-merge.htm
  13. I don't think you can use hotels in the Galleria as a comparison. Most business visitors and guests I know that stay in the Galleria rent cars; most people I know that stay downtown--business or other visitors--don't. Again, just my observations and two cents. Like I said, I hope it does well.
