  1. This project was news to me. Glad to see they are at least considering it. The 610 south to 59 exit situation is quite possibly the worst abortion in the Houston area. Did anyone happen to attend the meeting back in April? http://www.txdot.gov/project_information/projects/houston/59_610.htm
  2. I searched for a thread in this but didn't see one. The realtor has for years put up all these signs saying it's back. To me, this is certainly a place for apts and GFR. Why, in this market is the shopping center dead except for Amy's Ice Cream and Freebirds? I would post a photo of it but don't know how yet.
  3. Can't really spill the beans quite yet but something big is in the works at KPRC. I suspect you'll hear about it and see it in the paper sometime in 2015. Btw, they have hired a new morning weather guy out of Oregon. Should see him on the air in January. Wish I could disclose more but I can't. In due time...
  4. Looks like a large mixed use coming to Humble https://www.chron.com/business/real-estate/article/Archway-Properties-starts-Park-Air-59-mixed-use-12481996.php
  5. So the Prince's at Weslayan and 59 is officially closed. The address is 3899 Southwest Fwy Houston, TX 77072. It apparently was fully decorated, lights on etc.. but without any people and the doors locked for the past month or so. I drove by today and it had been completely cleaned out. The only things remaining were a built in booth in the corner, and the half of a 40's Dodge pickup above the counter. They've got a hand written sign up on the door that says "Were Closed" All the info online still looks like they're open eg: Yelp, Prince's Website etc.. Anyone know what happened?
  6. This seems like it could be an old/outdated/or dead project since it still mentions mayor Brown, but it has renderings of Discovery Tower and OPP and mentions a May 2009 purchase. Anyone know anything else about this? http://www.globalcenturydev.com/files/HoustonHB5.pdf (this file is separate and does not include the images below...it's for marketing)
  7. 4500 Travis Street, Houston TX 77002 http://www.bidclerk.com/project.1339216.html http://www.houstonmidtown.com/cms_templates/cmst_cal_popup.cfm?id=2459&dir=1
  8. What is being built near the intersection of Westpark & 59? There is some serious earth work being done. The site is at the northeast quadrant of the intersection, with a service station on the hard corner. The site has been vacant for years. Someone told me that it once housed a small amusement park that shut down after a murder in the 1970s. This was seen as the beginning of the surrounding area's decline. I don't have high expectations for this site, given the state of the surrounding area, but I am curious nonetheless.

  10. I've noticed the traffic is even worse in the past 2 weeks when they actually widened the lanes between First colony before the Grand Parkway exit. It goes to 4 lanes after First Colony before going back to 2 lanes about a mile before the Grand Parkway exit. Isn't traffic suppose to be better? In the past with the construction, it has been 2 lanes and the traffic was at least moving smoother and faster, but with the temporary 4 lanes, it has gotten worse. F*** up big time!! Gee, i wonder when people start moving into the Telfair area, how much worse it will be. Bad times ahead!!
  11. A while ago I noticed there was some construction on Greenbriar and the 59 access road. Last time I drove by, it seemed a lot bigger than I originally thought it would be. Does anybody know what is going on there? I believe it's approximately here.
  12. The part where people had to cross 4 lanes of traffic to get off on Westheimer if going north on 610 was a 100% success with that excellent single lane off ramp that gets you off of the main lanes before you cross over 59 and then dumps you right on the feeder before Westheimer. The major failure was in the ramp that takes you from 610 north going to 59 south. Before they reconstructed this area that area of 610 right in front of the Home Depot was famous for wrecks. I still see the area jammed up at all hours of the day during the work week. They did improve the access to go to 59 north
  13. Does anyone have details of what is going in here? I am talking about the land adjacent to the evil CVS. This was once home to the Westheimer Trucking Company I believe. Just wondering.
