  1. So found this on arch daily this morning and thought maybe this might lead to a good discussion about a possible future of the sea wall? It certainly is dominated by car traffic and I don't know when was the last time the seawall saw any significant infrastructure improvements. I don't know. Anyway just thought this was cool project in Mexico that could be reapplied not just in galveston but other places as well. http://www.archdaily.com/526748/malecon-puerto-vallarta-trama-arquitectos/
  2. This is more of a question than a topic of conversation, but I couldn't find a whole lot of information so I was wondering if anyone had any news regarding this topic.

The seawall dead-ended onto the beach. It looks like there was a heavy coating of seaweed at the time of the photo, similar to the huge coverage last year, some of which is shown in these photos further east near Sabine that I posted online.
  5. Found this in swamplot this morning This is a very nice old building. Don't really know if condo's are best in hurricane prone areas though. http://blog.chron.com/primeproperty/2014/06/historic-galveston-building-goes-condo/#24138101=0
  6. Well this was something fun to read this morning! I was wondering when they were going to build a new pier, but didn't know about the zoning restrictions. Anyone see any renderings or sketches of this yet? Here is the link to the chron article: http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Zoning-change-gives-huge-boost-to-plans-for-new-5517068.php#photo-6379411
  7. Of possible interest to some of you is this new book, "The Galveston-Houston Packet: Steamboats on Buffalo Bayou." http://www.amazon.com/Galveston-Houston-Packet-Steamboats-Buffalo-Bayou/dp/16094\ 95918 Here's a review of the book: http://galvestondailynews.com/story/361138
