  1. Proposed 21-story high-rise development at Bunker Hill Rd & I-10. There's also an office building shown but it's unlikely to be built anytime soon. Site is currently being used as a staging area for Hotel Zaza.
  2. We had dinner at Goode Co Seafood Friday night. Our waiter told us they are moving across the parking lot to a new site in the building closer to I-10. Indeed, there is a restaurant being fitted-out there. What makes this interesting is that he told us that they're moving because their current building is being demolished to make room for a new high rise with ground floor retail. He didn't know if that included the Office Depot (and former Sports Authority) building to the west. Is this part of the Metro National property?

  4. according to this article, there seems to be a need in West houston (which they call the geologic center of the city, believe it or not) that will be completed in 2010, at which the old hospital will be vacated and renovated. should make traffic fun there for a couple of years! Especially when you consider the various ramps to/from bw8 and I-10 are to be demolished in the near future. I look forward to this being comleted, though. Should make for an excellent addition to the city.
  5. you know what the heck ever happened to this place? it used to be in the second story of memorial city mall. before or after it was called kids kingdom, it was called jungle gym. the entrance to the park was from the food court by way of a massive stair case. I just remember memorial city mall walling up the entrance and building a blimpe outside of it. when I was a kid I always wondered if the stair case was still behind that blimpe. does anyone know what happened to it? and the answer is not exhilarma or whatever arcade they have on the other side of the food court now because that was always there. they just made it smaller with the expansion and addition of lord and taylor or what is now jc penny. the other arcade used to located next to picadilly (where the new theater is being built), it was demolished to make way for the sears expansion in the mid 90s. just wondering if there is still a mystery stair case behind what is now probably a sbarro
  6. Behind the Nexen building they are currently constructing Johnathan's the Rub's new location. I think its an awesome step up from where they are now...a convenience store? Great food, great staff...love the place! Its tucked in the back corner of the prperty bordering Bunker Hill and Gaylord. Link to crude panorama http://i.imgur.com/3ZW3ugR.jpg
  7. There's an empty plot on Kingsride that used to be a barbecue restaurant (sign's still there) and a Jack in the Box before that. It was torn down about two years ago for a Starbucks to be built there, but it's still an empty plot. Anyone know what's the hold-up?
  8. Since Cobalt International Energy has moved into 920 Memorial City Way, BisNow tells us that the building is now officially the Cobalt Center. Reference pic from the BisNow newsletter:
  9. Cool 1960's remnants of a fountain (blue tile) in the atrium of the professional bldg. I love those round stair steps. http://i278.photobuc...os/DSCN0757.jpg There is a walkway bridge in the middle of the courtyard, where you can walk across on two levels, 1st and 2nd stories. There are two courtyards in this bldg. Hope they don't get lost with remodeling, that is happening next door in the hospital, connected to this bldg. Was so surprised to see this hidden gem.
  10. Anyone know what the boxed in things will be at gessner and I-10 and Bunkerhill and I-10. They are on the New freeways underpass. Second any clue to the bridge to no where is about designs or blueprints over at Gessner and Memorial city? Third, Longpoint remodel.. shame they don't get it, a nice wide four lane with median would be fine, but they seem to cut it back down to the old width just pass the Wirt...
  11. http://msnbc.msn.com/id/9214243/ Looks like Midway tried to purchase this when they bought T&C mall, but Radisson declined. Now MetroNational has it, so you know they are going to make it great! It would be nice to know what they're going to do! I am excited about the change.
  12. I searched and no one had mentioned this place before it seems. Do you guys remember the miniature golf, arcade, and rides here? There was an area where the arcade is now, an entrance to the upstairs area by the food court, and one entrance to the upstairs along the main hall.
  13. Attention shoppers: This is only a test Houston Business Journal: July 2006 Memorial-area shoppers are all abuzz over a merchandising plan that leaked out for the old Town & Country Mall location being redeveloped as CityCentre. A site plan for the proposed mixed-use development includes names of nearly 50 high-end stores and restaurants such as Sonoma Home, Z Tejas, Fourth & Towne and Studio Move Grill. The array of haute retail stores is hot news on the modern version of the rumor mill as e-mail loops used by moms groups in the area get the word out. Before revving up those credit cards, however, shoppers should be aware that the merchandising plan does not list retailers actually committed to leasing space in CityCentre. It simply represents a roster of prime prospects the leasing agent would like to see sign on the dotted line. "A lot of it is just wishing and dreaming," says Nick Hernandez of Page Realty Partners Ltd., the broker in charge of filling space at CityCentre. Hernandez says this type of merchandising plan is typically used to show potential tenants the vision for a project. The Midway Cos. is planning CityCentre at the intersection of Interstate 10 and Beltway 8 to include 350,000 square feet of retail, residential units and a hotel. But construction won't start until an undisclosed percentage of retail space is taken. No tenants have inked a leasing contract yet, but Hernandez says there has been demand in the area for a long time. If the online hubbub created by the pretend merchandising plan is any indication, that seems to be a safe assumption.
  14. Houston Business Journal 2:45 PM CDT Friday 4-8-05 MetroNational unveils newest Memorial City pocket park Allison Wollam Houston Business Journal MetroNational has opened the Anne Wilford Memorial Park, marking the third park the Memorial City-based real estate developer has opened in five years. The newest park, located on the northwest corner of the new Professional Office Building III at Memorial Hermann Memorial City Hospital, is dedicated to the memory of the late Anne Wilford, wife of former Memorial Hermann CEO Dan Wilford. The Anne Wilford Memorial Park features sculptures and artistic symbols, celebrating the charitable, family-focused lifestyle of its namesake. To date, MetroNational has developed two Texas-themed pocket parks within the Memorial City community: the Yellow Rose Garden, which was completed in 2000, and Texas Heritage Park, which opened in March 2004. Wayne Hays, president and chief operating officer of MetroNational, says in addition to developing new office buildings, retail centers and hospitality venues, the company's pocket parks are designed to enhance the overall Memorial City experience and play a significant role in its vision for the community. Based on the community's response to the parks, MetroNational will continue to look for opportunities to proceed with its beautification initiatives. "We're taking areas of land which might typically be used for parking lots or similar usage and utilizing the talents of local artists and sculptors to create recreational amenities for the Memorial/Spring Branch community," says Hays. "Our beautification initiatives create a unique atmosphere and assist with distinguishing Memorial City's commercial area from Houston's other business communities."
  15. A question for all you real estate folks out there: I live out on I-10 and W. Belt area, N of I-10, not Memorial. My husband and I will likely be leaving Houston in 2006. How do you think the katy fwy expansion will affect house values at that time? Also, do you think the construction will alter the flood plane even with all the drainage projects that have been completed? I'm wondering if I should consider selling my house now to avoid all that mess in the future (since I know I'm going to be moving) and just rent a condo somewhere until I move? Do y'all think the house value will hold up?
