  1. I walked by the old El Patio Xuco Xicana restaurant and they were putting up new siding over the aluminum addition that was build a few years ago. I always hated the aluminum addition. It looked REALLY tacky. But, the new siding actually looks really good. I don't know if that means a new tenant is moving in or if the owner is doing his own renovations.
  2. We live right in Midtown and have been wondering about this corner of the lot that has BRB, Drinkery ( Formerly Open City, Formerly Cheerz) for a while. Figured you guys could tell me what used to be here and maybe what's in store? The owners constantly replace the glass with wooden boards to keep the homeless out. Extremely busy area on the weekends, surprised they don't knock this building down and charge for parking like many kitty corner lots in the area. Thanks,
  3. This was mentioned in another thread but it definitely deserves it's own thread. The plans to reconstruct Bagby to help make Midtown a more pedestrian friendly area are being scrapped. http://innerlooped.com/1840/very-bad-news-for-bagby/#comments The Director of Public Works, Daniel Kreuger wants to make Bagby a three lane street to help make cars move faster. This will obviously mean there will be less room for expanded sidewalks and improved landscaping that were originally planned. Commuters interests' are once again being accomodated instead of the interests of residents, pedestrians, and small businesses. To me, it makes no sense since Bagby has always been a fast moving street in the first place. I guess they want cars to drive 45 mph instead of 35? Apparently, the fight is not yet over. http://innerlooped.com/1851/bagby-street-hoopla/ If you feel as angry as I do, please email the mayor, Annise Parker and the director of public works and tell them how you feel about making Bagby a 3 lane road before it's too late. Public works director Kreuger: pwe.director@houstontx.gov Mayor Parker: Mayor@houstontx.gov
  4. I guess the Pin-up workout place went out of business, which will disappoint the pervs that would gawk at women working out from across the street. The good news is that they still have a reason to stop by and visit this convenient location. I applaud them on their smart location choice as we all know that the key to success is knowing your neighborhood and it's needs. Hopefully this will help anchor this area and bring in other businesses that would complement the current neighborhood trajectory. I'm thinking a checks cashed, pawn shop, smoke shop, self-defense school, or pain management center would synergize well near this location. I also really dig their design choices. It's good to let people know what services you offer in big fonts. Heck the people that live across the street won't even need to leave their breakfast rooms! Awesome...
  5. No official release from MMD, but here's a post from Innerlooped. Link: http://innerlooped.com/1897/midtown-officially-ae-district/ So what does this designation mean for Midtown. Is there a case study for how this designation affects a district? I'm curious.
  6. According to Swamplot, its scheduled for demolition. I'm so totally anxious for this to happen. Does anyone know what is going to take the place of it? Tell you what, the moment this thing closes, what metal is on that site might disappear, but not that quickly. They have an easier time bumming money off people.
