  1. Canopy And Wood Bar To Close. https://houston.eater.com/2019/5/15/18624879/canopy-montrose-closing-woodbar-may-2019 I'm sad to see them go; it sounds like the proprietor just wanted to focus on her other projects.
  2. wow! Found an unknown residence of Mr. Joseph Finger. Looks like it's sandwiched in between the Museum District and Montrose located at 801 Portland Street, Colby Court. I wonder if he designed the home himself? Any pictures? From the newspaper The Texas Jewish Herald dated March 24, 1927. Hadassah Silver Tea A silver tea for the benefit of Hadasah will be given at the home of Mrs. Joseph Finger, 801 Portland, Colby Court, on Wednesday afternoon, April 6, from 3 to 5 o'clock. A cordial invitation is extended the public.
  3. https://www.borirestaurant.com Keverry on Montrose LLC purchased a 5,447-square-foot building at 501 Lovett Blvd. from American Youth Hostels for a BORI restaurant, according to Davis Commercial. Hyon Sook Lee of the R. Alex Group represented the buyer. Mark Davis of Davis Commercial represented the seller. The building will be developed as the second location for BORI, a South Korean steakhouse at 1453 Witte Road in Spring Branch. Opening is planned in late spring of 2021. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/texas-inc/article/Retail-wrap-Scooter-s-Coffee-Van-Leeuwen-Ice-15825259.php
  4. Does anyone remember the Bayou Landing, off Shepherd? This would have been the early 1970's. Looking for anyone with memories of that place ...
  5. Looks renovated, I wonder what this will be. It's between the Jenny's Ice Cream and the Barcelona restaurant.
  6. Proposed unrestricted plat. Developer - https://kensingerdonnelly.com https://kensingerdonnelly.com/property/alabama-shepherd/
  7. Not sure if this has a topic created already but I’ve seen this being built for a while now. Anyone have more info?
  8. What’s going up on Fairview and converse street? Right by Lola’s. Doesn’t look like residential from what’s up (could possible be) but it looks more commercial. It looks pretty big for such a small lot. Happy to see the infill. And it looks promising no matter what it is (no parking lot!) so whether townhouses or a new business, I’ll take it.
  9. I've seen this bar/club mentioned on this site, in the "Montrose" section. Lynn Hornaday was one of the owners of the bar, and I worked with Lynn at a downtown stockbrokerage house, during the period when she and Marion were getting the bar up and running. I moved to Australia early 80's and had lost contact with Lynn long before that. Does anyone know Lynn's whereabouts? Is she still in Houston? She was from South Texas originally, if memory serves me correctly. Thanks! Mick
  10. It's not on the Planning Commission web site yet but this makes me think they might be demolishing the old Chase bank for new residences.
  11. Very cool! An old school in Montrose! Never even heard of it. Here's the business advertisement from the newspaper The Jewish Herald dated September 18, 1930. Does anyone recall this school? Any pictures? I'm sure the school was housed in a residential home? So a "school house" maybe? I'm assuming the superintendent/head instructor/owner was Maude Mitchell. Maude Mitchell School Fall Term Starting Sept. 15 Board and Day School Kindergarten and up to Tenth Grade French, Music and Expression Dancing / Transportation 4720 Montrose Blvd. / Lehigh 8405
  12. that was one of my favorites. also when sound/record exchange was on westheimer, mr. peabody's wayback machine, timeless taffeta, step back, sheer insanity...what about the happy buddha???..i think that's what it was called...oh well
  13. got an email from the Montrose Management District-- Breaking News: the Texas Transportation Commission received their recommended list of projects from staff and voted to approve the Montrose Management District’s application for funding to re-light the bridges over US Hwy 59 at their meeting Thursday morning. This project will replace the non-functioning original light strands with a state-of-the-art LED lighting system that not only will bring back the illumination that has been missing from the US 59 corridor for almost ten years, but will also create a safer environment both below the bridge decking and also for vehicular & pedestrian traffic on the bridges. The linkage provided by the Montrose bridge cannot be understated. Montrose is the only north/south connector west of the Central Business District that connects traffic from the heavily traveled I-10 to the Medical Center. The bridges not only provide a vital mobility link to communities on both sides, but also are a source of pride for the entire region due to their iconic nature. then I googled this: http://www.yourhoustonnews.com/west_university/news/m-grant-awarded-for-lighting-of-bridges-over-hwy/article_b4584127-5b33-5eb0-ad79-dd1d1239f519.html
  14. from the MMD meeting Announcement that Fred Sharifi purchased Baba yega and 5 other properties in the Grant/Missiouri/Crocker street area-- Also that Victoria Cohen(SEC) owner of property at Gray and Stanford were considering building 8 story condominum at that site
  15. Fantastic views of the city and in the perfect location to everything. Not to mention a wonderful staff! This I like. http://www.themuseumtower.com/home.html http://www.rent.com/media/property/1160/1160535.gif
  16. i went by the menil and rothko chapel yesterday and the broken obelisk in the reflecting pool in front of rothko is gone. anybody know what's up?
  17. Noticed this on Loopnet. Lots of space at the intersection of Haddon St. and Commonwealth St. This is the Sparks Tynes Building located at 1505 Haddon Street. Loopnet listing: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/1505-Haddon-St-Houston-TX/25817793/
  18. Look at this building!! The top designs just amaze me. Definitely wanted to share this one. Architect?
  19. This in this morning's Commerical Real Estate section of the Chronicle "The Westheimer Montrose Center, a 13,350 sq ft center with retail and residential space has been sold......the property at 1417 Westheimer was constructed in the 1920s and has been renovated several times" Anyone know exactly where this is? I googled 1417 Westheimer and it came up with Liquid, the store at the curve, but that's hardly a 1920s building...
  20. Okay so the property on Graustark at 59 seems to be the Pauline Sterne Wolff Memorial Home for Widows and Orphans. A google search says the home was the first Jewish orphanage in Texas and her fund still seems to be around according to this post from 2015 http://jhvonline.com/jfs-senior-adult-service-wing-to-carry-benefactors-name-p19236-109.htm "Pauline Sterne Wolff’s name is known through the many programs and facilities made possible by the foundation, a legacy that has profoundly impacted the city of Houston. Pauline Sterne Wolff died in 1921. The Wolff Memorial Foundation began with a $600,000-plus estate; $100,000 of the estate was used to buy land and build the Pauline Sterne Wolff Memorial Home in 1930. For decades, the home provided a safe and nurturing place for Jewish orphans to grow and flourish."
  21. Spec's is coming to Montrose!! Montrose and Westheimer next to Half Price Books in the shopping center on the corner to be exact. The space has stood empty for a while. Recently I walked past the unoccupied location and noticed a wall of coolers had been installed, my first thought was grocery store, but today on my way home, a sign company had plastered a paper layout on the wall so that they could install the electrical part of a new sign, I drove by slowly and barely made out the name of the infamous Rabbit's home!! Spec's Liquor Warehouse. Let's get our drinks on Montrose!
