  1. They've been reconstructing all of Yupon St. from Westheimer to W. Alabama for a about a month now. The entire street got improved storm and drains. The reconstruction is a bit odd with this one though. Some areas are getting new sidewalks and drives while others aren't. Its not a complete redo like they did with First Montrose Commons. Its your basic concrete curbs with sloped asphalt. Glad this is being done regardless as the streets on this part of Montrose are plain terrible. Do we know if this is happening throughout the neighborhood? Pics below:
  2. Since we Don't have Subforums for various "Villages" or Spring Branch, so I'll be putting these here for now. In 2017 the residents of Spring Branch ISD passed a Bond Referendum. A major project, Memorial High School, is on the eve of a proposed high school reconstruction. In the first phase, several wings of the existing building will be demoed as well as existing tennis courts. The courts will be moved across the street to the east to make way for a 4 story expansion building and plaza. The other work consists of minor patchwork renovations which signals that this won't be only phase. I'm sure they will probably rebuild the entire school piece by piece. .

  3. After years and years of back and forth between HISD, the architects, the school, and the community, this one finally broke ground in late March early April. This is a reconstruction of Bellaire's existing school. Originally part of the 2012 Bond referendum, this is anticipated to finally bring this massive bond to a close. Personally, I'm amazed this one ever got built. Lets just say this wasn't an easy project for those involved to develop, and there was a lot of chaos, but all of that aside the important thing is that its happening.

  4. Since we Don't have Subforums for various "Villages" or Spring Branch, so I'll be putting these here for now. In 2017 the residents of Spring Branch ISD passed a Bond Referendum. One of the projects is a proposed reconstruction of Landrum Middle School. The original 1950's era building will be demoed in a two phase operation where the new school will be built on the north part of the site in phase 1, and parking + bus dropoff + a practice field will be built in phase 2 after the demo. Developer: SBISD Architect: Stantec Estimated Completion: 3Q 2021 Bond Info: https://www.springbranchisd.com/about/bond-2017/campus-bond-work/landrum-middle-school Per the presentations it looks like the original idea to keep the gym has gone out the window in favor of a full rebuild. This one is pretty deep into Design Development. SBISD Presentation: https://v3.boardbook.org/Public/PublicItemDownload.aspx?ik=44348092 Images from presentation:
  5. Since we Don't have Subforums for various "Villages" or Spring Branch, so I'll be putting these here for now. In 2017 the residents of Spring Branch ISD passed a Bond Referendum. One of the projects is a proposed complete reconstruction of Hunters Creek Elementary School. The original 1950's building will be demoed. All students currently going to the school will instead be transferred to the South Transition Campus. Developer: SBISD Architect: Pfluger Estimated Completion: 3Q 2021 Bond Info: https://www.springbranchisd.com/about/bond-2017/campus-bond-work/hunters-creek-elementary SBISD Presentation (June 29, 2019): https://resources.finalsite.net/images/v1562798866/springbranchisdcom/ls58nwovdml9n8xkdzul/PPPtoHCES062619_Compressed.pdf The design is currently in a "refinement" phase, so basically still in Design Development.

  6. This was mentioned in another thread but it definitely deserves it's own thread. The plans to reconstruct Bagby to help make Midtown a more pedestrian friendly area are being scrapped. http://innerlooped.com/1840/very-bad-news-for-bagby/#comments The Director of Public Works, Daniel Kreuger wants to make Bagby a three lane street to help make cars move faster. This will obviously mean there will be less room for expanded sidewalks and improved landscaping that were originally planned. Commuters interests' are once again being accomodated instead of the interests of residents, pedestrians, and small businesses. To me, it makes no sense since Bagby has always been a fast moving street in the first place. I guess they want cars to drive 45 mph instead of 35? Apparently, the fight is not yet over. http://innerlooped.com/1851/bagby-street-hoopla/ If you feel as angry as I do, please email the mayor, Annise Parker and the director of public works and tell them how you feel about making Bagby a 3 lane road before it's too late.
