  1. Not sure if this is new "roiling" or a known development (also technically EaDo), but I'm adding it here: Sunrise Lofts - 89 Units with 81 designated as Community Development Block Grant Disaster Relief https://csd.harriscountytx.gov/Documents/Table of Selected CDBG-DR Affordable Rental Projects 051920 - website.pdf Recent (3/22/21) plan review permit states 64,086 sq ft apts with amenities. Currently an empty lot.
  2. Noticed some variance request signs on the N Ennis side of the Pruitt Co. shop, for reduced parking minimum requirements and reduced setback on Canal. I had no idea that Pruitt Co. was possibly moving (they mostly perform heavy commercial vehicle service and maintenance, including fire trucks and other City vehicles). I live a block away, so I’ll be watching this closely.
  3. Preface: This is my first ever post on HAIF. I have read this forum semi-regularly for a few years, but just decide to create an account yesterday. I am sorry if I made mistakes in this post or put it in the wrong place. Whenever I load up Google Maps, one thing about Houston always catches my eye: The lack of development on the eastern end of the Houston area. The whole area roughly bounded by 99, I10, Beltway 8, and 59, and extending partially into East Houston is almost completely rural farmland or empty lots. It is practically the same distance from the inner loop as Katy, Cinco Ranch, and Cypress, which have all been built out rapidly in the last 15 years. I was just wondering if there was a specific reason for avoiding building in this huge area? Picture of region here: https://imgur.com/a/HuvoFM9
  4. Office space and convenience store to be built at this location (one block north of EEB).
  5. Linbeck is the contractor adding more to the existing Yes Prep. There are more buildings across the street that are already built in the empty lot shown on Google Maps. This used to be a city park and Yes Prep took it over. I used to work near here and drove down Lawndale daily.
  6. https://www.bisnow.com/houston/news/economic-development/east-end-maker-space-taps-in-opportunity-zone-for-mayors-complete-communities-initiative-101858?utm_source=outbound_pub_4&utm_campaign=outbound_issue_33886&utm_content=outbound_link_1&utm_medium=email Interesting article about new developments for TXRX "East End Makers Hub" and "The Center for Pursuit". Looks like East End Makers Hub will be at 6501 Navigation and Center for Pursuit at 4400 Harrisburg.
  7. From the shops thread. Appears to be a large mixed-use track of land. Two plots... one to the north and one to the east of the picture.
  8. Awesome looking school. https://www.houstonisd.org/domain/46312 Vision Statement: Every student will engage in a rigorous and integrative health science curriculum guiding them to make innovative 21st century contributions. Mission Statement: In order to prepare students for the careers of tomorrow, we will provide them with engaging health science experiences through cooperative learning and technological integration.
  9. Just noticed the top floor of this building has been gutted. Any idea what's being done?

  11. Houston Business Journal has an article about a new affordable boutique hotel by Wanderstay to open in the East End. Does anyone have a subscription?

  13. Plat filed for the eastern half of lot that currently has the office building containing the Maritime museum and Andes Cafe on 2311 Canal St., so only the portion currently empty is covered. This entire property along with the one across the street bounded by Canal, Navigation, Runnels and the RR are owned by Midway (listed as KBRN on HCAD, same as East River). Both are highlighted in the attached picture. Judging by the shape I am thinking mid rise apartments, hopefully with some mixed use fronting Navigation. Anyone have additional info? Could this be the start of a larger "Gateway to the East End" project comprising both properties.
  14. Noticed they demolished the warehouse at 5601 Canal the other week. They've made good progress in clearing the space. It's the future site of mixed-income housing called the Canal Lofts. 150 units and a senior (?) community (http://www.blazerbuilding.com/portfolio/construction/) Their website says spring 2021, but I'm sure that's been pushed back since they haven't even fully cleared the land yet. Some more info from CoH about funding: https://houstontx.gov/housing/communication/2020/plain/0622.html Will try to snap some photos next time we walk past. 5601canal.pdf
  15. White and red building at the corner of Navigation and Milby will be a Church: https://www.holyfamilyhtx.org/3719-navigation-blvd Sign in front says "Coming 2021". Drawings TBD per website.
  16. preface: there's a lot of new residents checking out this sub forum, they are looking for good places to eat. Let's use this to share locations, and recommendations. you can format your recommendations however you want, but to make it easy, try: restaurant name food type location favorite dish BYOB? Kanomwan Thai https://goo.gl/maps/dLxueyTtQd8Ug3oL7 Pad Ka Pow yes! BYOB! Huyhn Vietnamese https://g.page/HuynhRestaurant?share #70 yes! BOYB!

  17. Ten years or so ago the Gulf Freeway from downtown to the 610 loop was basically a dead zone. In the last few years, though, it has started coming to life. Townhouses are going up steadily near downtown. UH has significantly improved their campus adjacent to I-45. Gulfgate Center is steadily expanding. The lovely new AAMA school will soon be finished. Strip centers have been build or remodeled. And today I saw another sign of improvement: The Rodeaux(nee Helena Motel) site at Wayside, which has been an eyesore, at least in my opinion, is being bulldozed to the ground. This will create a freeway frontage of almost a full block. Does anyone have an idea of what might be going on there? I hope it isn't just another strip center.
  18. This old warehouse will be converted to 80 residential units. A two-story building that was later an addition will also be converted to residential; with retail space as well. 810_Sampson_MATERIALS.pdf
  19. http://blog.chron.com/primeproperty/2015/07/old-coffee-building-in-eado-to-be-restored/ Not sure if there is already a thread on this...
  20. Noticed this a while back while walking the dog, and finally got around to taking a picture. Looks like the property includes the single family house next door Looked at their website, and there's no mention of this project but they do claim the Parc @ Midtown I've always thought this would be a nice plot for a park because of the two huge trees - hopefully they can keep them in their final design, but I'm not holding my breath.
  21. Hello, i don't know is this topic has been mention before but i'm curious about this huge mansion. looks very unique and actually looks like it was very beautiful when this home was being used. the home now looks abandon and covered in larges trees. does anyone know anything about this place? I've heard story's about being a fraternity but not clear. thanks
  22. Does anyone have any idea what is going on at 319 St. Emanuel? Looks like an industrial warehouse is being renovated. I have not been able to take any pictures, but this is a screenshot of the warehouse from google maps:
