  1. Has anyone heard about this? Their website is pretty generic, but someone on the Nextdoor app mentioned it’s going to be at the southwest corner of Montrose & West Alabama at 3900 Montrose Blvd. Their list of “partners” (see image below) appears to be quite wide ranging...including both Bludorn restaurant and giant Japanese tech investor SoftBank Group. https://bridgecityhouston.com/theorigin/
  2. The Montrose (Ghetto, Disco) Kroger has stripped their aging flooring. According to the cashier, they're planning a complete renovation, to be completed in 7-8 months. Guess the coming competition from H-E-B has roused them from their coma. While some fresh paint will be welcome, I hope they'll also become more conscientious about replacing wilted produce and forego their tradition of unmarked or overcharged items.
  3. A lot of rumors about the Montrose HPD (900 block Westheimer) storefront closing, not surprising since HPD Chief Acevedo wasn’t a fan of store front idea. But a neighbor mentioned a developer had bought the entire strip ( Guess Theo’s Will be moving also.)center and a few adjacent lots north on Grant and on Crockett street including a beautifully restored 1920’s home. All for multi use multi-storied building ——included will be the Freed library’s move from Montrose Blvd. Apparently the developer did something charming around 6 th street and Yale in the Heights. Now I wonder if this devel

  5. By Olivia Pulsinelli – Assistant managing editor, Houston Business Journal 2 hours ago After Randalls announced the closure of its prominent Montrose storefront more than a year ago, a new tenant has been lined up. Minneapolis-based Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) confirmed to the Houston Chronicle that it leased approximately 63,000 square feet at 2075 Westheimer, the site of the former grocery store. More details, including the opening date, were not available. The Montrose Randalls, located in the Shepherd Square Shopping Center at the
  6. Does anyone know what is planned for the large tract at the former site of Houston Community College on Richmond at Dunlavy? Who is the developer?
  7. The headline to Lisa Gray's recent article in the Houston Chronicle regarding the alterations to River Oaks Plaza says it best: Beige, Blotchy and Bland. Quote:"The snappy black-and-white buildings are turning beige. Fake stucco and more of that blotchy sandstone are covering the nifty old bricks. Above the building's canopies, new, taller parapet facades screw up the once-low-slung center's proportions, and allow more room for bigger, brighter signs." I'm with you, Lisa, and am stunned that anyone feels that this botched-up job is in any way an improvement. (If there's an existing thread on
  8. Looks like something is happening here. Maybe a car wash to compliment the one across the street?

  10. This thread was originally created February 26, 2017. I'm reposting / reupping this because this post and other content from me are no longer available on the forum. An archive link of the thread before its deletion is here. Davis Commercial is marketing this property (archived link) next to an existing office building at 701 Richmond Ave. T he building size is 3,000 SF.

  11. This group made a presentation at Montrose TIRZ Zoom last night. The Vice chair is Steve Madden but I didn’t catch the Chairman's name. I’ve posted plenty on MMD in the past and considered my self a non business owner supporter. As an aside.....I never thought the MMD should be completely made up of business owners- there is a lot to be said for opinions and prospective of non business owners- not the least of which is helping prevent tunnel vision. Now I’m more than a little skeptical at the new lineup ( all appointed without any public input as far as I know) with t
  12. Spec's is coming to Montrose!! Montrose and Westheimer next to Half Price Books in the shopping center on the corner to be exact. The space has stood empty for a while. Recently I walked past the unoccupied location and noticed a wall of coolers had been installed, my first thought was grocery store, but today on my way home, a sign company had plastered a paper layout on the wall so that they could install the electrical part of a new sign, I drove by slowly and barely made out the name of the infamous Rabbit's home!! Spec's Liquor Warehouse. Let's get our drinks on Montrose!
  13. Saw this in Cohen's enewsletter- $25,000. Doesn't seem like much to begin developing a park.The "future Park" is one city lot, covered in black top and surrounded by wrought Iron fence, Cyprus trees in the ROW on Whitney street side.COH/parks is beginning to hold community meetings to gather residents input. Hopefully a name will be chosen. Seems most residents would like simple, minimalist park because of size--something that might pay tribute to Avondale development in 1907. I took that to mean that everyone is hoping it won't be a grass lot with many 20 gallon ubiquitous live oaks t
  14. Article today on a development in east Montrose from the Montrose management district http://montrosedistrict.org/new-redevelopment-project-planned-for-east-montrose/
  15. Looks like an entity tied to Levcor (address 7800 Washington Ave - suite 800) has purchased the old church at 4910 Montrose.
  16. El Tiempo cantina at 1308 Montrose to close to give way for new MF building: http://blog.chron.com/foodchronicles/2014/10/el-tiempo-1308-cantina-may-soon-close/
  17. 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
  18. I noticed a few public notice signs at the apartments at Washington and Waugh announcing an application to redevelop. Anyone have any idea what's up with that?
  19. There was a notice put out that Mayor Parker would be speaking at Washington Terrace Civic meeting this Wednesday, concerning development on that piece of land. I noticed a bit of grumbling and lots of rumors about this development from residents Does anyone know any details? Is this part of Midtown TIRZ meeting it's requirement to build affordable housing?
  20. According to The New York Times (Oct. 22, 2006), a new 20 foot-tall, 37-foot wide sculpture "constructed out of fiberglass, pulverized marble and lime cement" is to be installed on Nov. 12. The artist. Michael Somoroff. describes it as "a sculptural translation of light as it moves across the chapel." (Pictures of Illumination I can be seen on the artist's website.) If I'm understanding this correctly, it will be installed inside of the chapel. Wonder how they'll shoehorn it in there?
  21. i went by the menil and rothko chapel yesterday and the broken obelisk in the reflecting pool in front of rothko is gone. anybody know what's up?
  22. Saw this track hoe in the parking lot of the old Positive Recovery Center building. It was a restaurant when I moved to the neighborhood but PRC took it over a few years later, looks abandoned now. Looks like it might get demolished. It has a huge parking area in the back and is 2 lots wide.
  23. Montrose, near the intersection of Dunlavy and Westheimer is getting a small boutique hotel. This was on the April 25th agenda asking for a variance request. From the renders it looks like it will be 9 rooms. Its nice that the area is getting stuff like this. I don't know of any other hotels except for the AirBnB hotel concept that is near Agora. Anyone else know of more info? Images Below: Apparently this is being held up due to some strange situations in city ordinances that dictate that a hotel that is under a particular threshold
  24. Did any HAIF members go to Montrose Elementary, located at 4001 Stanford, where the High School for the Preforming and Visual Arts is now? I did, from 1957 to 1963. The teachers I had, in descending order from sixth grade to kindergarten, were Mrs. Hudson, Miss Shuttle(s)worth, Mrs. Martines, Miss Shapley, Miss Millard, Mrs. de Ybarrondo, and Mrs. Lucky, as well as 2 music teachers: Mrs. Fogel and Miss Womack. All were, as I remember, quite good teachers. Others whom I didn't have but whom I remember were Mrs. Roper, Mrs. Menier, Mrs. Blackwell, Ms. Luna, and Mr. Schmidt. This latter, one of j
