  1. For years I have been wondering if Sears will ever do something with this eyesore located in midtown. It has so much potential, I guess at one point it was actually considered a beautiful building. Sears really needs to think about bringing it back to its original form. Something needs to be done. I would prefer to preserve the building, instead of razing it . What do you all think? Article found in the Chronicle today. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/life/main/5924010.html ''It's hideous!" fumes my friend V., warming up to one of his favorite rants: the unbearable ugliness of the Sears o
  2. This was in the previous thread for Midtown Common | 2403 Caroline . Although the information is outdated, it may be helpful to see what was previously discussed or shared before since the original thread and other content from me were removed. Archive links to original thread here: page 1, page 2.Originally posted by phillip_white, February 24, 2019 in the previous thread for Midtown Common | 2403 Caroline. Looks like at least a portion of this lot is being switched to an affordable housing project called Caroline Lofts by Mark-Dana Corp. 87 total units with 76 low income
  3. I can't find the thread that had renderings and site plan, but the developers are seeking setback and visibility triangle variances. It will go before the Planning Commission on Thursday, 5/28. The location is the Southwest corner of Austin/Webster intersection where Midtown Bail Bonds used to operate.
  4. 6-Story expansion planned at Jackson & W. Gray St. Currently on the planning commission agenda.

  6. There was an article in the Chronicle today outlining some new developments in the Midtown area that sound incredible... Houston Chronicle In short: 1. Big white mansion at Elgin @ Austin will be renovated ($3 million cost) into a new upscale restaurant, lounge, and event center 2. Old Boy Scouts of America building at Bagby and Victor: Work on the Boy Scouts building will begin in February. The $20 million project will include Moor's Restaurant and Tapas Lounge, serving mainly Moroccan and Spanish cuisine and be leased and operated by Hicham Naffaa and Ali Bendella, owners of Coco's Crepes, C

  9. (Posts moved from Louisiana and Elgin thread) dbigtex56 Well, I don't see anything at all....but here are a couple of pics of the site, I think. Here is a small project we've talked about across the street, but I couldn't find the thread.
  10. The NHP Foundation received a $1.5M annual allocation of 9% credits from the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs to construct 149 units of permanent affordable housing in Houston’s Midtown neighborhood. Additionally, the city of Houston Department of Housing and Community Development has allocated $15M through its Harvey Multifamily Program. The project is also being considered for funding by the Harris County Community Services Department. Magnificat Houses Inc. is providing the land and is NHPF's partner in the development. The property, located at 3300 Caroline St., will cont
  11. On a Sunday stroll, I noticed a drilling rig doing what looked to me like soil samples in the Central Bank parking lot between Milam and Travis (2217 Milam but the drilling was closer to Travis) in Midtown. The bank occupies the entire block. Pix attached. This is across the street from the new bar, Pour Behavior, that is supposed to open this winter at 2211 Travis St. I’m not sure what is going on there. Does anyone have any insights/baseless rumors?
  12. Today, on my quick drive home from downtown, I noticed that Baldwin Park has bright orange temporary fencing all over it - specifically around the outline of the trail and around each of the trees...likely a protective measure. Looks like they're finally gonna start on this thing...

Tallet, Staff writer March 26, 2021Updated: March 26, 2021 1:47 p.m. There are only two places in Houston declared “National Treasures” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. One is the Astrodome, regarded as “The Eighth Wonder of the World” when it opened in 1965. The other is a small, unpretentious stucco house near downtown that

  15. Is the new midtown park fully open? The chain link fence is gone, people are using it, but one of the gates to the dog run is padlocked. (There's two gates but only one is padlocked)

  17. Project Midtown Building Address 3310 Travis Street Houston, TX 77006 Architect HALFF Owner Travis Partners Capital, LLC. Information This project is a new 6-story midrise building (approx. 23,200 sf) that will be connected to an existing 2 story building on the NW corner of Travis and Francis streets in Midtown. Levels 1-5 consists of office space while level 6 has Kitchen/Bar/Lounge (enclosed) with an outdoor terrace.
  18. This is at the corner of Alabama and Fannin. After looking into the variance request, I found that it is planned to be 6 stories with a 2 story parking garage. The approval of the variance request was postponed from June 9th to June 23, 2011... I haven't seen any renderings, only a floor plan. "The Men's Center is a very vital facility that provides a recovery program to alcoholics to regain their lives and dignity. The proposed plan is to redevelop the site by demolishing the existing development and erecting a new six story building with an exterior facade similar to that of a mode
  19. From what I have been hearing, the old "Late Nite Pie" (502 Elgin) location was purchased by the same people that own "Chrome" nightclub over at Shepherd @ Kipling and it's going to be 2 or 3 floors in height! While nothing has been set in stone, the only thing I can think of is what a horrible location that would be. The Lot is small, NO parking (Valet options would probably be 24hr garage and the Restaurant in the back), plus the high speed exits from 59 on Brazos. You'd have to have wreckers posted there on weekends.
  20. Pearl is really banking on Midtown. I think this brings the total count to 4 possible Pearl complexes in the area.
  21. Figured I'd go ahead and start a new official thread on this. Coming Spring 2014 Midtown Superblock Park http://innerlooped.com/1653/midtown-superblock-first-look/ It's going to have underground parking too! There is a link to the full document on InnerLooped. • Includes a balance of program items that support the overall goals of the Midtown District • Includes over 140 underground parking spaces that support park activities, nearby retail destination and the Main Street rail line • Includes over 7,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space Renderings and info as
  22. I wanted to touch on a topic that has been weighing heavy on my mind recently, and I'd like to hear peoples thoughts. It's ironic that I discovered both these posts today. First, I read a somewhat encouraging article from Houston Public Media about a 5% decline in the homeless population from 2018 to 2019. You can read more in the article here: https://www.houstonpublicmedia.org/articles/news/city-of-houston/2019/05/15/333384/homelessness-down-5-in-houston/ . Obviously the stat on mental health spending was a little depressing, but to hear that Harris, Fort Bend, and Montgomery cou
  23. Just wanted to give a heads-up to anyone interested in attending. The Planning Dept. website doesn't show the next meeting date. WHAT: Public hearing to consider the proposed Midtown Walkable Place Pilot Area Plan WHEN: Thursday, March 5, 2:30PM WHERE: City Hall Annex Chambers, Public Level (900 Bagby St.) MORE INFO: The plan addresses things like setbacks, sidewalk widths, and the location of parking spaces. http://www.houstontx.gov/planning/Commissions/walkable-places-midtown.html http://www.houstontx.gov/planning/wp-committee.html
  24. Looks like a residential high-rise is (well, more likely was) planned for 3030 Travis St. Sometime between Jan. 2015 and Aug. 2015 the owners removed all leasing information from the strip center that sits on the site. I was going to dump this in the Houston: Potential thread but there appears to be some intent to build here, just may happen later rather than sooner. http://www.estudioarchitecture.com/# Street View: https://www.google.com/maps/place/3030+travis+st+houston+tx/@29.7429346,-95.3773422,3a,75y,323.82h,90t/data
