Didn't know if anyone was privy to what, if anything, will be added to Gulfgate. There is still the huge empty land between 610 and Donaraki. Also there appears to be some kind of construction action in the parking lot in front of the Marshalls.
I remember one of the department stores in The Gulfgate Mall having a made of wood place where they hung blue jeans. I remember thinking how cool it was. It was during the 1970s. It really looked 70s style too. It kind of reminded me of something that came out of a television series or sitcom from the 1970s. I wish that was still there in The Gulfgate Mall. So many memories are not there anymore, how sad!
I was born on June 13, 1972 in Houston Texas! I was born and raised in Houston Texas (I still live in Houston Texas), but I have traveled a lot though. My grandfather (my mother's stepfather) died on Friday October 02, 2009 and my grandmother (my mother's mother) died on November 15, 2011 (I believe that is the correct date). But all my grandparents has passed away. Let's get started on my topic! I remember going to the Gulfgate Movie Theater in the 1970s and the 1980s, and I remember the stain glassed window (pardon my grammar and spelling), does anyone remember that beautiful stain glassed window? I also remember that fun video game with the race cars at the Gulfgate Movie Theater, too. I do remember going to the Women Restroom in the Gulfgate Movie Theater and remember that neat tile work throughout the Gulfgate Movie Theater too. And in the Women Restroom they had a sink and a place to wash your hands in the stall (pardon my spelling, again). How about that neat orange round couch or sofa in the middle of the lobby, where you can look at that beautiful stain glassed window while sitting on that circlar sofa/couch. I remember a lot of beautiful and neat stuff from the Gulfgate Movie Theater. How about when you drove on I-45 and you could see the Carousel Hotel/Motel Sign? That was a very neat sign, in my opinion. I miss seeing that sign, now. All these things reminds me of my mother's parents (my grandparents). I was especially close to my grandfather (my mother's stepfather). We spent every waking hour with each other. He was such a good man! I also remember Peppermint Park, too. I didn't realize that Peppermint Park was located in the Gulfgate Area. I remember seeing both the 1970s movie 10 with Dudley Moore and the 1970s movie Saturday Fever with John Travolta at the Gulfgate Movie Theater. We stop going to the Gulfgate Movie Theater in the mid-1980s or the late-1980s, because the Gulfgate Movie Theater got to be a danger place. A lot of scary people hangout there.
Today Mayor White will announce plans for "The Animal Campus at Gragg Park" in the Gulfgate area. Gragg Park is on South Wayside at Brays Bayou. Fundraising will begin to find $10 million for the project, designed by English Associates Architects and Connolly Architects. I poked around the intarwebs and found this web site. I think this is the project: Construction begins in 2011.
