  1. Looks like something is happening here. Maybe a car wash to compliment the one across the street?
  2. 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 developer will underwrite the HPD storefront in that development or if someone else will offer rent free space inside Montrose for the storefront to move into.

  5. Worthy of a new thread.... Construction set to begin on high-rise by summer 13-story condo to be built on site of former River Caf
  6. 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!
  7. 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?
  8. Etro Lounge is leaving Montrose for Downtown in August. With the success of Anvil coupled with the parking situation on California St, will be interesting to see what happens to the old space. https://www.facebook.com/168343289321/posts/10156405183734322/
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

  13. I rode by these today, it looks like a small apartment project with first floor parking. Anyone know what it is? My pic is from Hazard St.
  14. There were 3 demolition permits issued this week for this. Anyone know what's happening here? Loopnet listing https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/1732-1744-Richmond-Ave-Houston-TX/3832638/
  15. There was a huge moving truck outside today--What's going on?

  17. They also developed what is now City Vista at 2221 W. Dallas. https://uslivinginvestments-montrose.com
  18. I heard a rumor today at a real estate office that this property has been sold. Has anyone heard?
  19. Great Southern Life Insurance Co. occupied a building on this corner in the mid-50's. I had a summer job there just after I graduated from high school. There was a park called Dunlavy Park just south of there that had a swimming pool. I have no idea how long Great Southern was there. Seems like I remember a Great Southern building near Richmond and Buffalo Speedway when I worked for TI on the SE corner of Buffalo Speedway and Richmond in the early-mid 60's. Does anyone know the evolution of the occupancy of the Richmond-Dunlavy corner from the 50's on?
  20. There's a large (for this neighborhood) steel-framed building going up on the north side of Westheimer in the 500 block (approximately where the Happy Budda used to be). Also, across the street a smaller building is going up in a former vacant lot (wedged between the strip center and the VA services building.) Anyone know what businesses are going into these new buildings? edit: I'm also curious about the lot at Whitney and Westheimer (northeast corner). An old house was moved to this site a few years ago; for a while it was used as offices for a used car lot, then a short-lived nightclub called Da House. I see everything above the first floor has been removed. Is it being moved again? Any idea what might go in its place?

  22. 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/
  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 of units can't be built in a high percentage of residential. The variance is to argue the case that its near a major transit corridor and commercial corridor and that the normal methods which enforce this particular restriction doesn't have merit because of the specifics of the site. Interesting situation, but I hope this goes through. Nice Fine grain type development.

  25. "A 51-year-old Masonic lodge on Montrose sticks out among trendy restaurants, world-class museums and contemporary residential high-rises. But it might not be there for long." -Nancy Sarnoff, October 1, 2005 Houston Chronicle Is this section of Montrose Blvd. (south of 59) fated to become a row of high-rise condos and/or apartments?
