  1. Just out of curiosity, does anyone know of any plans to renovate/rebuild the Kroger at Cambridge/OST? I live right down the street from it and find it really convenient, but really outdated and the layout a bit cramped. I'm hoping something similar to the Montrose (near Westheimer) renovation could happen at this location. An expanded "prepared meals" section and dairy section would be really nice. Also, a bigger entrance would be good too...My far-fetched wish is that they would buy some of the land next to them and build a brand new store like the Studemont location, and convert the existing into more parking and a Kroger gas station...I went to the Kirby store the other day and it looks like they could handle a larger store in the area.
  2. I believe the energy plant on Fannin & Braeswood/Pressler is CenterPoint. Don't think it's TECO? This past month there has been law enforcement stationed within the plant. I can only guess this is due to the recent rise of utility plant attacks? I wonder why the constant guard? Kind of scary, but they are protecting it.
  3. Noticed the widening of the dirt road a long with a new fence and CenterPoint sign. What's the deal with the independent horse stables way down there? Thought I read years ago that there was a lease agreement between the original landowners and CenterPoint Energy. The family was able to keep their horses on a patch of the land. Is there a name for the stables? I looked on satellite, to find a oval track and a few old buildings/shacks. The oval track is to give the horses exercise? Didn't think there was a racing track here?
  4. Center Point Energy's H.O. Clarke Generating Station at 12045 South Main St. Weeks ago I noticed a demolition permit at this address. Looks like a part of the site will be turned into Powerfuels' Houston Clean Energy Park. Center Point Energy will still occupy some of the parcel?
  5. Surely there has been retained a photograph of this unusual, at the time, architectural design. I worked there from 1979-1980 and have been trying to describe it to a friend, who doubts its existence. The "remodeling" in 1996 hath rendered what amounts to a new and drastically different design and she cannot visualize my descripton. It also was renamed several times, but I believe the latest is Houston Industries Building. I have Googled and Ask.com'ed ad nauseum and still no likeness of it. Here is a description from HH (Historic Houston): 1100 Milam Building 1100 Milam Street Architect: Joint Venture Ill: Koetter, Tharp, Cowell
  6. Has anyone else had Centerpoint upgrade pole lighting in their neighborhood? I was out of town for a few days and noticed the street lighting was much improved near my home when I returned. My gf didn't notice the change from the orangish light to crazy bright white led but that was the first thing I saw when I got home. They didn't change all of them her near my Third Ward home but the one across the street and a few down the block are new.
  7. I'm in Eastwood, and this morning we found a hang tag on the door that we are getting the new CenterPoint smart meters soon! Looks like some time in August they will replace ours. The website has a deplyment schedule, and it looks pretty evenly spread across the city. Pretty exciting, I think. Anyone else receive one? http://centerpointenergy.com/energyinsight
  8. Mayor Bill White to Appoint CenterPoint Energy Executive Terence Fontaine to the Metro Board Mayor Bill White today announced his intention to appoint CenterPoint Energy executive Terence Fontaine to the Metropolitan Transit Authority Board of Directors. Fontaine, who formerly worked as a deputy chief of staff under Mayor White, is a senior member of the team tasked with improving customer service in CenterPoint
  9. McCombs plans 400 apartments near downtown on West Dallas By NANCY SARNOFF Copyright 2006 Houston Chronicle A San Antonio-based real estate firm led by businessman and former Minnesota Vikings owner B.J. "Red" McCombs is planning to build more than 400 apartments in a new development near downtown. Koontz McCombs will break ground in March on the roughly $50 million pro- ject. The still-unnamed complex will be built on 5.5 acres at 2221 West Dallas near Montrose, once the site of a CenterPoint Energy meter-reading facility. The project, which could be completed by the end of next year, comes at a time when most apartment complexes in Houston are full. Hurricane evacuees who relocated here have leased thousands of rental units in the past few months. From August to November 2005, occupancies in the nicest complexes went from about 89 percent to almost 94 percent. Link to the article
