  2. I got this in an email from the Museum District business Alliance--- The newly formed Montrose Management District needs your input on how it should be marketing our area. To provide your input, we request that you go to www.montroselogo.com and complete the survey on this website. FYI--- The East Montrose Management district ( HCID#6 roughly covering Dallas to Bagby to I59 to Montrose blvd) was combined with West Montrose Management (boundary goes Shepherd, Dallas, Montrose blvd to I59 with a small portion of Museum district Montrose Blvd, Bissonnet, Graustark) montrosedistrict.org/
  3. New project by Austin’s Bunkhouse Group. They’ve previously done El Cosmico (Marfa), Hotel San Jose & Hotel Saint Cecila (Austin), Hotel Havana (San Antonio), and Hotel Phoenix (San Francisco) Unlike their past projects, this will be new construction adjacent to the Menil. Opens Fall 2023 https://www.houstonchronicle.com/lifestyle/home-design/article/Austin-s-hip-Bunkhouse-group-plans-cool-hotel-16378230.php?utm_campaign=socialflow&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=referral&fbclid=IwAR3CHIF3EC16GTTokNUWNNBS75uNJb49cMiUOT-7MOuC-x5f_mQamjy9UKQ
  4. Apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere, but do we know what the Hay Merchant/Blacksmith folks have planned for that lot? I'm out of state now, but I seem to recall it being fenced up the last time I was in town. And perhaps a variance request? Thanks. Just hoping to see more good news along this stretch of Westheimer...

  6. What’s going up on Fairview and converse street? Right by Lola’s. Doesn’t look like residential from what’s up (could possible be) but it looks more commercial. It looks pretty big for such a small lot. Happy to see the infill. And it looks promising no matter what it is (no parking lot!) so whether townhouses or a new business, I’ll take it.
  7. Covenant House Texas expanding services https://www.tmc.edu/news/2019/08/covenant-house-texas-expanding-services/ The organization has launched a capital campaign—Building for Life, Homelessness to Hope—that aims to raise about $25 million over the next three to five years, Executive Director Leslie Bourne said. In July, Covenant House Texas purchased an office building across the street, on Lovett Boulevard. The structure will be a key component of a campus reconstruction and expansion project. To bring attention to this daily crisis, Texas Medical Center President and CEO William “Bill” McKeon will oversee Covenant House Texas’ largest annual fundraiser on Nov. 21. As honorary chair of the 2019 Sleep Out: Executive Edition, McKeon hopes to raise $1 million by seeking the commitment of Houston business leaders—many of whom will spend the night outside to more closely connect with the reality of homelessness. “We’re here to draw awareness to some- thing we drive by every day and don’t see,” McKeon said during a spring luncheon with young adults on campus, noting that youth aren’t top-of-mind for many people who think about or encounter the homeless.
  8. I've seen this bar/club mentioned on this site, in the "Montrose" section. Lynn Hornaday was one of the owners of the bar, and I worked with Lynn at a downtown stockbrokerage house, during the period when she and Marion were getting the bar up and running. I moved to Australia early 80's and had lost contact with Lynn long before that. Does anyone know Lynn's whereabouts? Is she still in Houston? She was from South Texas originally, if memory serves me correctly. Thanks! Mick

  10. I celebrate a lot of birthdays, etc... I am the "party planner" for my group of friends/relatives... these are my faves [Dollar signs are my own emphasis]. Also, try b4-u-eat.com for reviews. Downtown - *Sambuca - great for celebrations *Bossa ($$) 610 Main *Mia Bella - Main - my fave restaurant, but sadly the staff has changed recently. Midtown *Damian's ($$$) 3011 Smith - classic Italian Montrose / Shepherd - *Vincent's / Nino's / Grappino di Nino ($$) 2701 W. Dallas http://www.ninos-vincents.com/ Nino
  11. Spoke with one of the guys who works at Montrose Car Care on Saturday morning and learned that they are closing at the end of the month. Most of the people are relocating to another shop further south on Montrose as part of a "merger" of sorts. My immediate thought was that the property had changed hands and a new development might be forthcoming. This is one of the more prominent intersections in this part of Montrose, so I could see a new retail development doing well here. Property was listed on LoopNet for lease, but was pulled down about a month ago. Seems consistent with a new buyer. Laz Enterprises, Inc. has owned the lot since 2001--I assume this is an entity associated with everyone's favorite parking lot operator. Hopefully it has changed hands and isn't destined to be another parking lot (like what they did a few blocks east at Stanford).
  12. It's not on the Planning Commission web site yet but this makes me think they might be demolishing the old Chase bank for new residences.
  13. Very cool! An old school in Montrose! Never even heard of it. Here's the business advertisement from the newspaper The Jewish Herald dated September 18, 1930. Does anyone recall this school? Any pictures? I'm sure the school was housed in a residential home? So a "school house" maybe? I'm assuming the superintendent/head instructor/owner was Maude Mitchell. Maude Mitchell School Fall Term Starting Sept. 15 Board and Day School Kindergarten and up to Tenth Grade French, Music and Expression Dancing / Transportation 4720 Montrose Blvd. / Lehigh 8405
  14. that was one of my favorites. also when sound/record exchange was on westheimer, mr. peabody's wayback machine, timeless taffeta, step back, sheer insanity...what about the happy buddha???..i think that's what it was called...oh well
  15. got an email from the Montrose Management District-- Breaking News: the Texas Transportation Commission received their recommended list of projects from staff and voted to approve the Montrose Management District’s application for funding to re-light the bridges over US Hwy 59 at their meeting Thursday morning. This project will replace the non-functioning original light strands with a state-of-the-art LED lighting system that not only will bring back the illumination that has been missing from the US 59 corridor for almost ten years, but will also create a safer environment both below the bridge decking and also for vehicular & pedestrian traffic on the bridges. The linkage provided by the Montrose bridge cannot be understated. Montrose is the only north/south connector west of the Central Business District that connects traffic from the heavily traveled I-10 to the Medical Center. The bridges not only provide a vital mobility link to communities on both sides, but also are a source of pride for the entire region due to their iconic nature. then I googled this: http://www.yourhoustonnews.com/west_university/news/m-grant-awarded-for-lighting-of-bridges-over-hwy/article_b4584127-5b33-5eb0-ad79-dd1d1239f519.html
  16. https://www.borirestaurant.com Keverry on Montrose LLC purchased a 5,447-square-foot building at 501 Lovett Blvd. from American Youth Hostels for a BORI restaurant, according to Davis Commercial. Hyon Sook Lee of the R. Alex Group represented the buyer. Mark Davis of Davis Commercial represented the seller. The building will be developed as the second location for BORI, a South Korean steakhouse at 1453 Witte Road in Spring Branch. Opening is planned in late spring of 2021. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/texas-inc/article/Retail-wrap-Scooter-s-Coffee-Van-Leeuwen-Ice-15825259.php
