  1. 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

  3. What's happening at Memorial Park? Looks like there is going to be a new pedestrian bridge going in just as you enter the walking trail?
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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
  8. 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)
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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. . .
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. I know there's already a thread for this somewhere but I just can't seem to find it, anyways please merge if there is. Updated Renderings of the Energy Corridor Master-Plan http://www.energycorridor.org/newsletter/article/m.d.-anderson-makes-healthy-move-to-the-energy-corridor/january-2013
  16. Hi all, To anyone who is interested you are invited to attend the first official meeting of the JOE CAMPOS TORRES ACTION GROUP tomorrow (2/22/2012 @11:00 a.m.) at 2509 Navigation Blvd. to explain the objective of having a Harris County Historical Commission Marker placed in Moody Park, to commemorate and to keep alive the lesson of the May 7, 1978 INSURRECTION in the park, plus an update on the historical marker dedication on March 22, for EL BARRIO DEL ALACRAN. {Facebook page}
  17. Subjects Queen Park Shadow Meadows Lanes - Bowling Alley The Grocery Store By Queen Park The Burger King in the Queen Park and Shadow Meadow Lane Area I remember my grandfather (my mother's stepfather) taking me to Queen Park, the grocery by the Queen Park, Shadow Meadows Lanes, and the Burger King in the same area. I believe these were located in the Pearland or Pasadena Area. Does anyone remember these places?
  18. Does anyone have or able to provide access to photographs of old amusement parks in Texas? I love amusement parks and roller coasters and travel each year to visit parks. This past July, I travelled to Germany for two weeks to do such and do other sightseeing, as well. Within Houston, I know there were AstroWorld (of course) Playland Park (near the old AstroWorld site, though I don't know exactly where) Hanna Barbera Land (became Splashtown in Spring) Oak Park (near the intersection of Washington and Houston Avenue) Peppermint Park (apparently there were several, with one near the old Gulfga
  19. First I have heard of this. http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/article/Project-to-transform-stretch-of-Buffalo-Bayou-2406589.php
  20. I didn't see this anywhere else, so here goes... A new folk-art inspired greenspace called Smither Park is being planned for the 1/2 acre lot adjacent to the Orange Show. The park's development is being sponsored by the Orange Show in memory of John H. Smither. The design is by Dan Phillips (although I can't tell if he's doing the overall park layout or just the pieces within the park). Here's the website: http://smitherpark.org/Smither_Park_Website/Welcome.html ... and a rendering (found on the site):
  21. I'll start off with a few freeway shots, a brief tour of Eleanor Tinsley Park (walking east on the Bayou) and the walk back. Hope you enjoy. hope you enjoyed.
