  1. Spaghetti Warehouse purchased for renovation

    it's up on the HAHC site.
  2. 8200 Washington Ave

    That's... probably a good sign. I've been really impressed by Conservatory, so hopefully this ends up being another great project.
  3. ... i mean, do we really want them driving? just saying...
  4. 8200 Washington Ave

    I wish there was a proposal for putting in some kind of track crossing into cottage grove, because right now the site is really only accessible from Washington. If I lived in Cottage Grove I would love to walk or bike to something like this, but that becomes a lot less appealing if I have to go out of my way and take a pretty unappealing stretch of road.
  5. 1111 Rusk: Texaco Building Renovation

    So, for what's it worth, I checked Stay Alfred's website and it looks like they're charging $168.67 per night. I'm genuinely curious - what exactly is the concern here? Is there any reason to believe this is a long-term strategy, or is this just a way for the property owner to make a little more money while the building is filling up? Even if this is intended to be long-term, what negative repercussions are anticipated?
  6. More coming to Midtown!

  7. More coming to Midtown!

  8. More coming to Midtown!

    I mean, it's within two blocks of Weights & Measures and 13 Degrees Celsius. I think if they can veer more toward that demographic rather than the more stereotypical bro-y midtown scene they'll be fine.
  9. Block 436 & 437 (Formerly Milhaus Midtown)

    you mean the red brick that doesn't start until the second floor? The red brick you'll barely be able to see instead of apparently yellow "stucco" if you're walking next to it?
  10. Planned LBJ Statue and Monument Downtown

    I, for one, support this weird giant statue of LBJ standing on top of a Ferengi Marauder.
  11. Houston Center Redevelopment Plans

    You should never mess with an elegant shaft.
  12. East River - KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    I would probably argue for somewhere around 600' as a maximum - depending on how it's measured 300' might actually be a bit smaller than a standard downtown block.
  13. East River - KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    Right, but it's ridiculous that Chapter 42 allows that. It should instead require more reasonable block lengths so that developers would have to apply for a variance for more than, oh, let's say 1400' b/w streets (that Planning Commission would of course immediately rubber stamp, but still!, it's the principle!)
  14. The Regalia at the Park: 100 Crawford

    Stop giving me false hope!
  15. Holiday / Days / Heaven On Earth Inn (801 Calhoun)

    Eminent domain it and make it affordable housing...
