  1. Important pedantry of the day: it's actually "for all intents and purposes", not "for all intensive purposes." But anyway, even if the other buildings don't get built I'd say this tower is pretty significant.
  2. That would be absolutely fantastic. Such a logical extension of core capacity.
  3. I meant the streetcar. I'm reasonably confident that Midway will make this project work.
  4. That area has so few through streets. Is there anything (parallel) between San Felipe and Westheimer? That's really the issue - everybody gets forced onto one or the other.
  5. Yeah that's ...disappointing.
  6. Not that I know of. It would be a pretty big project for East End though and I'm not sure how they'd make it happen financially.
  7. But something like New Hope is actually *also* helpful in that regard. It's hard for me to see this as an issue, at least at this location. In places near quasi-permanent homeless encampments? Sure. It's been one of the issues with the Pierce Elevated. Not really an issue here. There's also a decent number of houses within a few blocks, and the townhouses are getting closer every day. I'm sure there are people who won't want to go here; I just think that they're not the intended clientele anyway. If this place is close to as good as 13 degrees it will do just fine.
  8. Eh, 13 Degrees Celsius seems to be doing just fine. I think you're expecting the customer base to be a lot older, bougier and more conservative than it is likely to be just because it's a wine bar.
  9. This is Shipley territory and that is absolute heresy.
  10. East End MMD wants to do a streetcar on Clinton. Pending funding of course.
  11. Hahaha. There is nowhere in central Houston comparable to parts of Baltimore or North Philadelphia. I might be careful going through parts of 5th Ward still, and you *will* get chased by dogs if you ride through Third Ward often enough, but that's about it.
  12. Unless there's a frequent bus that runs 19th St. I assume there isn't, but if there's one on 20th/Cavalcade then that might do most of the job.
  13. That is ... a very wide variety of neighborhoods. Among those, the closest comparison (at least in physical form) is probably Navy Yard/ SE/ the area around the ballpark. Once everything currently under construction is finished, I actually think Midtown will be pretty comparable to Navy Yard. Actually, I'd say Midtown is better because it has actually managed to retain some remnants of previous iterations of itself. Navy Yard has retained a few nice old red brick buildings, but the actual tenants are mostly pretty bougie and mediocre. Midtown absolutely has its bro scene of course, but it also has Leon's, Continental Club, Big Top, Double Trouble, Tacos a-go-go, some remaining good bits of Little Saigon, the best Spec's, 13 degrees, HCC Central's campus, the amazing job done at the old Gulf Station for Revival, same for Axelrad, some solid newer stuff like Spicy Girl, and it's even getting a Whole Foods for just a touch of bougieness. Nah, twenty years nothing.
  14. Makes LEED look pretty absurd and meaningless.
