  1. Wow, we here at HAIF have known about this for almost 2 months.
  2. Even if there is room and it could physically be done, I would imagine that the terms of the HCFC easements would not allow for trails, meaning a separate easement would have to be negotiated with each property owner (and presumably paid for). I saw a BBP presentation some time ago where they talked of that missing link and said they are always working on trying to acquire property rights to make that connection.
  3. I don't think there is much question this will be approved. I think city council has been on board and ready to approve this for quite.some time. They've only been waiting for the mayor to put it.on their agenda.
  4. I don't think you can flatly say that this expansion necessarily induces sprawl outward. It is at least as likely (and I think more likely) that this project will reduce sprawl. If access to downtown continues to be more and more restricted by congestion, its growth will be choked off. There are already a huge number of people and companies who have zero interest in locating downtown or anywhere inside the loop, because of the congestion (or perceived congestion).
  5. Downtown Dallas Office Building to be Imploded Saturday
  6. FWIW, they've been planning/working on the Uptown BRT project for more than 6 years.
  7. And none of this was unique to Houston. Cities all over America, if not the world, turned their backs on their waterfronts, to put it mildly.
  8. Website is open now: https://posthtx.com/ From the Chronicle article: "The redevelopment of the warehouse is expected to be completed by next summer."
  9. Cute they way you sidestep around your earlier false statement. But, yeah, they've been a great benefit for west-side commuters. They do the same thing for traffic that rail transit would do... provide alternatives.
  10. The only new freeway lanes in Segment 1 and 2/3 of the new freeway lanes in Segment 2 are MAX lanes (Metro buses and High Occupancy Vehicles). Those seem like options other than the single occupant vehicle transit option.
  11. 46,000 square feet. The new building is for Pk3, Pk4, Kindergarten, and Grades 1-5. (I don't know where on the website you saw that it only includes Pk3, Pk4, and K; the full list is on the website in several places. ) Early Childhood and Lower School Building seems to describe it pretty well. They have Middle School (Grades 6-8) classes in another building.
  12. This doesn't answer your question, but it will help avoid further confusion. I'm pretty sure the weather ball was on the building at 1300 Main, not 921 Main.
  13. FWIW, their website says they are 65% sold and shows which units are sold.
  14. Do they have a distribution center in Chapel Hill?
  15. Some basic familiarity with the city would go a long way...
