  1. 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. I know back after Hurricane Ike hit the trolleys were damaged (not the bus trolleys) and that they were undergoing restoration. I had seen articles as recent as last year indicating they were close to coming back, but they weren't there when I traveled there in May of last year and haven't been back since. Does anyone know if they are operating again or is this one of those projects that is dragging along? Any word o
  2. 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/

  4. Today's news report that the beach along the west Seawall will be restored made me think about this photo in my archive collection High resolution image This image was dated 1962 but that is not necessarily correct. 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. Total of 100 rooms. I wonder where this will be located. http://dr-architects.com/our-portfolio/
  8. http://galvestondail...om/story/354142 This should be a good addition to the East End, especially considering that the building that is currently on that lot is a huge eyesore. I've never stayed at an Aloft hotel before, but it sounds like it is a bit nicer than most of the other Seawall hotels (excepting San Luis/Galvez/etc...).
