  1. I know they are building a Chipotle next to the Panera Bread at FM1960 and Eldridge. I noticed they tore down the old Steak-n-Shake in the Target parking lot. Does anyone know what is going in there?
  2. I'm currently writing a story involving places in or around the FM 1960 and Kuykendahl intersection near I-45 in North Houston/Spring in 1970-1971. Absolutely anything anyone can remember or direct me to would be helpful, especially any good ol' Ma & Pa burger joints near there. I've been told already by someone who lived there that there was a burger place on Kuylendahl between FM 1960 and I-45 that was there around 1963-65. Any pictures would be amazing and I'd love you forever. I've been reading lots of stuff on this site and I can't believe I found such an awesome place online! I can't wait to acknowledge this site in the book, if such a book ever happens. Thank you!
  3. Hello all, This is my first post to the forms. I noticed while out today, the building at 11411 FM 1960 is currently being demolished on 11/2/21 . From my research, I have found that the building was formally a dealership, Northwest Suzuki. I know that it has stood vacant for at least 3 years, as that is how long I have been coming to the area on a regular basis. I can't find anything on the internet about the demolition or what the property will be used for in the future. I have some pictures I will try to upload later to preserve this small, rather insignificant part of Houston history. I hope there are others who maybe know more about this property, and are willing to share. It has fascinated me for years, as do many abandoned and run down structures.
  4. Hi everyone, I'm not an architect (my college roommate/friend is though, at aTm!) but I've noticed that you guys sometimes mention the now defunct Game's People Play on 1960. This was an iconic part of my childhood as well, as I often remember going by it all the time when going to the Champion's Country Club Pool. I also remember getting to go there a couple of times. I started a Wikipedia entry to somehow cement this in history, however, my first mistake was taking a google satellite view of the place (which is still clearly visible and crazy to see) I got around that, however, my article has no references and may or may not be notable. the only search engine links are to forum entries, which may not justify itself as a reference. I could use newspapers, but I haven't made it to a library (what are those these days anyway?) Check it out at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Games_People_...(amusement_park). If anybody is more wiki savy than me or thinks they could help, go for it!!
  5. New multifamily going up at 6701 FM 1960 West. It's by Alliance Residential, their Workforce Housing brand called Prose. More details: https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/TABS/Search/Project/TABS2020013507
  6. In 1999 not long after I moved to Houston Fiesta opened a Super Fiesta just across the road to Willow brook Mall is it still there?
  7. I lived in Houston (CooperField) from 1999-2001 and I used to love going to an all you can eat Japanese Sushi restaurant on 1960 at the entrance to Willowbrook Mall. I can't remember the name of it. I was wondering if 's still there? Lots of happy memories.
  8. 21423 Aldine Westfield Road, Humble TX 53.98 acres sold by NewQuest to HEB This is a triangle shaped area intersects FM 1960/Treaschwig Rd/ Aldine-Westfield Road. http://www.newquest.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/53.98_Acres_FM_1960.pdf Currently the land is being cleared, but no signs or web info on the project. Very old farm buildings demo'ed plus old trees. http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2016/05/25/heres-what-h-e-b-is-cookin-up-in-houston.html Article above details the sale, but I do not have access to a sub so I am not sure the details.. I read somewhere else there was no immediate plans to develop even though the land is being cleared.
  9. So today I went to the Apple store in Willowbrook Mall to get an iPhone screen repaired, and my route took me down FM 1960, which I had really never gone on before. A few interesting sights were there but the most interesting, or at least most unexplained, was a thick metal smokestack at Meadow Vista Blvd. and FM 1960. It is rusty and speckled with graffiti, but it has no attached structure...the last building there on the lot appeared to be a private house demolished sometime in the 1980s...but it wasn't attached to it anyway. The only guess I have that there appears to be a gas conduit running along there, but you wouldn't have a SMOKESTACK for that now would you? https://www.google.com/maps/@29.9478046,-95.5621505,3a,69.9y,74.35h,78.1t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1shQjPcjP9lsmvZRngNROM-Q!2e0!5s20160901T000000!7i13312!8i6656!6m1!1e1
  10. Is it my imagination or has there been an armed crime on FM1960 reported on the local news nearly every day for the last week or so? This is getting completely ridiculous!! What's going on with law enforcement that criminals feel they can act with impunity in this corridor?! Something needs to be done!!
  11. Found this little blurb from an article in today's HBJ and found it interesting, given the location. Could this intersection finally be seeing much needed infill? They've had parcels of land "fenced" off going down Eldridge for a couple of years but no movement. Or is this going north of Westheimer? Anyway... http://houston.bizjournals.com/houston/sto...ml?surround=lfn Indeed, Target is planning three new stores in the Houston area for 2007 and 2008 located at Interstate 45 and FM 646 in League City, at FM 1488 and FM 2978 in Magnolia and at Westheimer and Eldridge. Sure to be suburban style but that huge swath of land really sticks out like a sore thumb in this part of the city/county (it's right at the edge).
  12. Located at 9441 FM 1960 W in the Humble Crossing Shoping Center. It's called Dirty Juicy Burgers. Great burgers with handmade 100% Angus beef. The bread is homemade and the taste alone will have you talking. Nice selection of burgers & sandwiches. Here's the website... dirtyjuicyburgers.com
  13. Does anyone have any information about the old Country and Western bar Shi*tkickers at 3225 FM 1960. Its now an antique store but I was there over the weekend and would certainly enjoy knowing some more about the place. The lady working there said it was built in the 70's as a bar.
  14. So does anyone know what's there right now? Streetview still shows the location as a Krystals although imagery shows that the building has been painted blue. Also does anyone know why this was the only location that ever opened in Houston or why it closed?

  16. There has been a very large lot cleared just west of 290 and 1960. At one time a sign indicated a new hospital was to be built there. That sign, however, has been missing for a few years. Anybody know what is going up there?
  17. I am truly fustrated at the nonstop traffic on Highway 6. I live in Sugar Land and used to live in Northwest Houston and worked on the westside so I'm very familiar with the headache that is Hwy 6 and FM 1960. Will there ever be a solution to that corridor. Maybe they could widen Eldridge on the westside. The new medians from Memorial @ Hwy 6 to Fort Bend County have done little to ease traffic. I was thinking of a connecting Baker-Cypress to FM 1464 (Clodine Rd.). They have just finish completion of widening 1464 road in Fort Bend County. There would definitely be an issue with the environmental impact of going through George Bush park. The ground might not even support a road going through there, but there is a small dirt road/ bike trail that connects the two. Not to mention the flooding in that area. I don't know what the solution to the traffic problem but something has to be done or we are all going to have road rage and go crazy !
  18. The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs has received a pre-application for Housing Tax Credits for the Emerald Gardens Development proposed to be located at 8 +/- acres North line FM 1960 of Jones Rd., Houston. For additional information, visit the Housing Tax Credits Web page at http://www.tdhca.state.tx.us/multifamily/htc/ and... The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs has received a pre-application for Housing Tax Credits for the Silverado Meadows Development proposed to be located at 10 acres North line FM 1960, E of Jones Rd., Houston. For additional information, visit the Housing Tax Credits Web page at http://www.tdhca.state.tx.us/multifamily/htc/ If you don't want Low-Income Subsidized housing dragging down your home values, increasing area crime and overcrowding your already overcrowded schools, then get organized and oppose these new projects. I suggest you contact your local HOA's as soon as possible as well as your Congressman, Senator and CFISD officials.
  19. has anyone heard any more updates about the scheduled construction for fm 1960 @ kuykendahl? they broke some ground, moved a few light poles, but nothing. i think the general plan was/is to build an under-pass on 1960 beneath kuykendahl.
  20. I read on a blog somewhere (SouthernRetail.blogspot.com) that the Toys R Us on FM 1960 is closing due to an underpass at FM 1960 and the railroad. If this were true, this would mean major disturbances to all nearby businesses, including possibly cutting off Breton Ridge access. It's totally unconfirmed, and the only Google result shows that they were still considering other options.
  21. From chron.com.. Medians divide FM 1960 community I personally think the medians will decrease accidents a lot, especially if they make the medians a dedicated left turn like it is on westheimer, accidents have gotten way out of hand. Plus, if 1960 becomes safer, more people would travel on 1960 instead of avoiding it and can increase business for area merchants. Any other thoughts?
  22. I noticed that construction has started at the old Circuit City off of 249 and 1960, has anyone heard what is going in that space?????
  23. Looks like Ruby Tequila's Mexican Kitchen is opening several locations in the Houston area, beginning with locations on FM 1960 near 249 (across from Willowbrook Mall) and another in Midtown. Ruby Tequila's is a popular chain of Tex-Mex restaurants based out of West Texas. Ruby Tequilas
