  1. Has anyone heard any rumblings about the Americana being demolished with mixed-used going in its place?
  2. SA and Elmore Sports Group in discussions for a new ballpark in Downtown SA for a relocated AAA team, likely the Colorado Springs SkySox, also owned by ESG. Team would likely be a AAA affiliate of the Rangers, with Round Rock switching back to the Astros and Fresno going to the Brewers to replace the SkySox. Ballpark sites discussed include the northwest corner of Hemisfair, at South Alamo and Market streets; the Institute of Texan Cultures; Fox Tech High School football fields; parking lot south of the Alamodome; and sites near Lone Star south of downtown, and the Pearl. IMO, the sites on either side of I-37 maybe be the best spots in terms of visibility and the potential for a view of the Tower of the Americas in the outfield. http://www.baseballamerica.com/minors/report-colorado-springs-moving-to-san-antonio/?utm_campaign=trueAnthem:+Trending+Content&utm_content=56ff51d204d3014a9536e911&utm_medium=trueAnthem&utm_source=facebook

    Block in between YMCA & 800 Bell. Noticed this lot was fenced off this afternoon, along Travis, Bell, and Peace. No parking here either. Anyone know what’s up?

  8. My bike at the bottom for a perspective.
  9. The op from reddit called the TMC "downtown 2", nobody here has ever heard it called that but the size of TMC rivals most US cities downtown areas.
  10. First off, Im not supposed to let this out....I promised my source. But after hearing this news, I felt compelled to post it here, seeing as this forum isnt as well known, I feel safe to post it here. But most importantly, Im all for downtown development and this I feel is a huge loss for the Downtown nightlife/club scene. I feel when I post what I know, most will take me seriously and understand my point of view and offer up ther own insightfull analysis or logical opinion. In the club promoting industry, the time from January to Spring Break is usually a dry time, when club's see their least business. Reasons vary from cold weather, to school starting back up, to the crowd being simply partied out from the holidays. Of late, Things have been slowing and crowds have been thining downtown. The fear is that alot of smaller downtown clubs will not make it to see Spring Break, something my trusted source ominously confirmed. And when a big Club venue downtown goes down this soon, it will cause gitters downtown for other samller venues, which might cause a few to pull the trigger and pull out of downtown. The big club I speak of going down is MBar. This is sad for me since majority of my friends work here. It wasnt just a club for me, It was more like going to a frat party and socializing. For the last few years of my life, Ive had some memoriable times here. This place means alot to me and Im truly sadden to hear of its impending demise. From what Ive been told, it will close before Janurary is out. In fact, Ive even been told that last Saturday night was its Final Night. For Downtown, This means no more MilkShake nights on Thursday nights, which was a huge "celebrity-filled" draw 4 years strong. The same could be said for Saturday's as well. When a smaller venue like Dean's across the street sees another larger neighbor close its doors (Opus close by as well) it does not bode well for the downtown scene. Can Downtown's nightlife scene survive this dry time? From what I hear, there are going to be alot of vacancies opening up soon where clubs used to be.
  11. A bit premature, but it sounds like some sort of mixed-use project is in development for Downtown? http://handelarchitects.com/firm/leadership/stephen-sheng http://handelarchitects.com/
  12. I was told today that they plan to build another one on the block south of their downtown site. However, I think he said it wouldn't be for 10 more years. I guess a lot could happen in that time.

  13. Per the November 8th downtown management agenda, they may be authorizing a project on block 350, which the agenda says is part of the TIRZ #3 downtown living chapter 380 program. However, according to this map, block 350 is on Pease between Main and Fannin, which to my knowledge is not within the project parameters. Anything know something about this? It would be cool to get some residential on this side of town, although near DG might create more synergy and the vibrancy they're looking for. http://www.downtowndistrict.org/Home/Meetings/Overview1/default.asp block numbers map http://www.downtownhouston.org/resource/maps/ project parameters http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/print-edition/2012/09/07/are-developers-interested-in-downtown.html?s=image_gallery

  18. Hey everyone. Still working on my Graduate Thesis and need some input via interview/survey. Tried posting this on r/Houston to get more people involved, but the subreddit sucks because anytime I post it auto removes it classifying it as spam! (seriously?) So thought I post this in a more reliable place...here. Since I'm not able to travel back home to conduct this survey/interview with people from the area I'm researching I was wondering if people within this community could possibly help. I would greatly appreciate it! You don't have to answer all the questions if you don't feel comfortable answering them. I would also like a picture if you can provide one. My focus area and site I'm analyzing is also in the link. I'm primarily looking at an area of Midtown/Downtown near I-45 (Pierce Elevated). Please try not to think to much while taking the interview. I want whatever comes first to your mind. I want honest answers. Its important for my research. At the end of my Thesis I'll link to it here in this subreddit and will be sure to give credit to those whom I use for my research. Here is a link to the interview: http://i.imgur.com/hnHoyUZ.jpg You can email me your interview and picture to this email address: derluminare@gmail.com Please comment if you have any questions or critiques.
  19. Is there a Hilton Garden Inn being planned for downtown? Last weeks planning agenda had "Hilton Garden Inn CBD Subdivision" listed in the Consent section. For some reason I'm not able to download the .pdf with the details so I can't see what zip code it's in or any other info. Maybe someone else can?...
  20. The big, incomplete, interactive map of what's going up in Houston has been updated to include the JPMorgan Chase employee daycare center at Main and Bell. http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=206730043409095570269.0004a96360f502ee46915&msa=0&ll=29.753867,-95.36695&spn=0.00367,0.0039
  21. Any know more information? This is proposed multifamily, near downtown. I assume these are a high-rise or mid-rise project, most likely the latter.

  22. Howdy everyone! I'm about to begin my thesis project here in Germany this next semester, but I need some help. I've chosen a site in Houston because I wanted to do something related to home and an issue that is very important to the city (highways). Here is where the site is going to be located: Yes, I'm putting the project over the highway. This project will also take into account the proposed reroute and redesign of the highway. I need help with photos of the surrounding area and of the site from multiple angles at various times and at different levels of traffic (from nothing on the road to high traffic). Any help would be fantastic....sense....well I can't exactly go back home to do this myself. I can't offer much of anything in return other than a mention in my thesis in terms of credit for information given and images provided. I hope you guys can help if possible Thanks!
  23. Scroll down to Texas, and you'll see "Aloft Hotel - Downtown Houston, Opening June 2016". The location (820 Fannin Street) is the Stowers Building. http://www.starwoodhotels.com/corporate/directory/new-hotels/all/detail.html?sortType=region&brandFilter=AL
