  1. http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/blog/2014/11/tmc-outlines-potential-plans-for-new-research.html?ana=twt
  2. Today, on my quick drive home from downtown, I noticed that Baldwin Park has bright orange temporary fencing all over it - specifically around the outline of the trail and around each of the trees...likely a protective measure. Looks like they're finally gonna start on this thing...
  3. Does anyone know exactly how long the memorial park track is?
  4. We've seen reports that highlight the lack of green-space in Southern DT, but plans are being set in place for a park in this area. In the very early stages, 1/2 - 1 Block will be acquired for the park. This will be a joint effort by the Downtown Management District, COH Parks Dept. and TIRZ 3.
  5. Hey guys, I'm hoping someone can provide a link or pics of the just released plans for the new downtown park/GRB. I searched other threads for info and I've found nothing. Thanks- Tejo
  6. FYI, I took the family to Hermann Park Saturday morning. What a gem this park is!! The renovations to the reflection pool and McGovern Lake are fantastic. There have also been a lot of reforestation projects undertaken that will pay dividends in a few years. We should be proud of Hermann. . . it's a great urban park. Do yourself a favor and spend a couple of hours there soon. It is a good stress reliever. . .
  7. This thread was originally created November 2017. Because this posts and other content from me are no longer available in the forum, I'm reposting this. I wasn't able to web archive the first page to reference for past comments, only the second page. (page 1 of original thread archive (screenshot) ) (page 2 of original thread archive link) The 36+ acre site where Grocers Supply Co. currently conducts business is on the market. Real estate service HFF Houston is marketing the site 3131 Holcombe Blvd, along with properties bordering Grand Blvd, Dixie Dr, and Ardmore St for a total
  8. Has anyone heard anything about this?
  9. Although I do not live in the East End I have worked in the area for many years. I work very close to the Golf Course and it is something I look forward to seeing each day. The history of Gus Wortham G.C. in itself should declare it a landmark. It is, imo a treasure of the city. Unfortuately, the city has not kept it up very well and a movement in the East End has begun to save it. Below is a wonderful editorial by attorney Walter Boyd. A committee is being formed called Friends of Gus Wortham that will do whatever it needs to to raise funds, clean it and hopefully perserve the entire course f
  10. Is the new midtown park fully open? The chain link fence is gone, people are using it, but one of the gates to the dog run is padlocked. (There's two gates but only one is padlocked)
  11. 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?
  12. Hi all, I'm moving in to Post Oak Manor next month and I had been very concerned about whats going on just behind the neighborhood...then I ran across this: This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 960x768 and weights 88KB. I think this is great, and I really hope it creates a natural barrier between Main and the new tollroads to the south. Does anyone know what the current project status is? Also, any useful info about Post Oak Manor and Willowbrook / WillowBend would be great. Does Post Oak Manor have an active Civic club? Thanks
  13. Here's the best info from the article: The project has broken ground: http://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/columnists/sarnoff/article/High-end-office-building-underway-west-of-downtown-5920360.php#/3
  14. John Teas died recently and now the family is selling off the centenarian property for single home developments. Bah.

  15. Figured I'd go ahead and start a new official thread on this. Coming Spring 2014 Midtown Superblock Park http://innerlooped.com/1653/midtown-superblock-first-look/ It's going to have underground parking too! There is a link to the full document on InnerLooped. • Includes a balance of program items that support the overall goals of the Midtown District • Includes over 140 underground parking spaces that support park activities, nearby retail destination and the Main Street rail line • Includes over 7,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space Renderings and info as

  17. Company modernizing sites on South College Avenue By CASSIE SMITH Doug Pederson and Jack Threadgill officially are turning a half-mile stretch of South College Avenue into Midtown. That's the surname given to five rental properties in Bryan that the pair are spending millions on renovating, hoping to turn it from what many described as an eyesore to a well-groomed area that will become a catalyst for future development. Twin City Properties Management Inc. plans to have a grand opening and ribbon cutting April 15 for the project. "We're transforming this neighborh

  19. Weird that a project of this scale hasn't made going up, but with it being near Greenspoint I'm not surprised. This is well into construction and actually is supposed to be finished August 16th. In 2016 Houston was selected to host the BMX World Championships, but we didn't have a facility to host, so instead we built one, of course! Really neat project outside the loop. Because of its size and importance I thought it was "going up" material. If you are a BMX or skateboarder this will definitely be your thing. This is located on Greens Bayou. Really awesome project.
  20. Doe anyone have any recollections of what Milby Park use to be like? My Dad often reminisces about it, telling stories of how he and his brothers use to go down to Sims Bayou bordering the southern end of the park and--believe it or not--shoot their BB guns at an alligator that lived in the Bayou. He said the refineries took care of all of that. He says it was quite a park.
  21. Latest aerial/drone video update of the Big Rivers Waterpark/Gator Bayou Adventure Park site in New Caney: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I80eBs58EE0
  22. This one is opening next month (April 13, 2019), and will be home to Houston's Major League Rugby team, the Houston SaberCats. It's currently in the construction phase (broke ground back in July 2018), and will have a modest capacity of 4,000. Overall project cost is $15.25 million, and was partially funded by a long-term loan from the City of Houston. The location here is city-owned land at a newly-developed addition to Houston Sports Park which will be visible along the South Freeway (SH 288) at its overpass at Sims Bayou. Principal naming rights were sold to current team sponsor AVEVA, who
  23. The construction sign says it's a $5.7 million project. That's quite expensive for a pedestrian bridge, and the pier/tower is very large. Only one tower is under construction, there appears to be no activity on the other side of the bayou.
  24. What can we do to improve our parks system? What parks would you say could use renovations, and how would you like for them to be renovated? Where do you see the potential or need for new parks? i think improving our parks system, paired with a green roof initiative could really change a lot of peoples perceptions about Houston from being a dirty polluted oil dominated city, to an environmentally friendly, beautiful green city. Here are a few stats for why I think we could stand to work on our parks system. "In seven of the nation's largest cities, nine out of 10 residents live within a on
