  1. CrockpotandGravel may have posted something about this but I couldn't find it. Came across this sign at 3229 Navigation for a Mixed Beverage Application.

    Anyone know what the addition to the top of the building is?
  3. 723 Main Street to become an AC Hotel by Marriott. The building is catty corner to the JW Marriott. http://www.downtowntirz.com/downtownhouston/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/06142016-JOINT-BOD-MEETING-AGENDA.pdf
  4. It looks like they're reintroducing retail at the corner of Rusk and Main: http://www.houstontx.gov/planning/Commissions/docs_pdfs/hahc/Application_Materials/April_MATERIALS/712_Main_Gulf_Building_App_Materials.pdf
  5. Source: https://www.bisnow.com/houston/news/office/yet-another-iconic-downtown-tower-is-getting-a-new-look-101024 Rendering: Looks like we got another one 🥳
  6. Anyone seen what renovations are going on at St Thomas High School, Vaughn is the GC. Couldn't find topic, merge if necessary.
  7. Finally, someone is reusing this building. This entire corner of Westheimer and Mulberry has been dead for some time. This is that building with the famous multi-colored art wall with the dripping paint that every girl has to take an instagram photo in front of haha. The main tenant looks to be a niche thrift store called "Out of the Closet". Apparently there will also be offices for a Pharmacy and some kind of Healthcare foundation. Biscuit is on the wall, so are they involved? Is this there project? @CrockpotandGravel Anyway you would be able to fix this mess of uses? haha A lot seems to be going on here. Here are some images:
  8. I've come to term this building the "Merry-go-round" of uses building. This was originally home to a small business called "Flower Vault" which was a weird concept of fancy art walls were people can go and take pics of themselves or products? It catered to the instagram scene. Was there for maybe a year. Now that is out the window. Then about a month ago I saw Flower Vault disappeared. It had a sign for a fancy upscale barbershop, which would have been cool since Cutloose Hair is down the street (one place for girls and another for guys), but last week the temporary sign got pulled even after they painted over the Flower Vault letters. This week in the "Merry-go-round" of uses building is Joshua Caleb Art. I don't know if this is permanent or again if its going to be a popup retail space. If you don't know who Joshua Caleb is, he used to be a linebacker for the Houston Texans. I'm probably going to go to the opening event which is on August 16th and see what this is all about. This is also, apparently, in tandem with the Boys & Girls Club.
  9. Can't find a forum thread for this, and because there isn't a subforum for Near Northside I'm going to put it in The Heights for now @editor This is well into construction and per the calendar provided by HISD, it should be completed sometime early next year. This is a large expansion project + renovation/reuse of the existing building on campus. Northside High School was part of the 2012 Bond Referendum. Project link: https://www.houstonisd.org/Page/71972 Developer: HISD Architect: IBI Group Architects Estimated Completion: mid-2019 Budget: $46,764,000 Original Render: Latest Photos from HISD:
  10. Blue Triangle Multicultural Association and Community Center What we know about the Blue Triangle renovations ahead On Tuesday, the state of Qatar announced it was providing the Blue Triangle Multicultural Association and Community Center with a grant for $4,988,123. The money is part of Qatar's $30 million Harvey Fund that has provided monies for a variety of nonprofit organizations in the aftermath of the 2017 storm. This video walk through looks similar to the pictures shared.
  11. Shake Shack lettering is being covered while they work.

  13. 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 one-half mile walk to a park, according to the report. The seven are New York, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Seattle, and Washington, D.C." only 45% of Houstons residents (or half the percentage of the 7 cities listed above) live within walking distance of a park.. thats over 1.2 million people who cannot walk to a park in this city. (the average of the 40 largest cities in the US was 68%.. the highest was San Francisco at a whopping 98% of its population) Houston spends $40 per resident on its parks system a year. less than half of the national average ($82). compared to the highest spender (Washington D.C.), who spends $397 a year per resident on its parks, we spend almost 10 times less on our parks. We didnt even make the top 10 in any of these "snapshots", covering baseball/softball fields, basketball courts, swimming pools, skate parks, rec centers/senior centers, and dog parks. http://www.tpl.org/sites/default/files/cloud.tpl.org/pubs/ccpe-cityparkfacts-2012.pdf
  14. Does anyone have any idea what is going on at 319 St. Emanuel? Looks like an industrial warehouse is being renovated. I have not been able to take any pictures, but this is a screenshot of the warehouse from google maps:

  16. Noticed banners up for "The CO-OP HTX" near The Studio HTX / Tout Suite on the corner of Chartres and Commerce. The banner had some form of rendering. Couldn't tell if it is a renovation of an existing warehouse around there or a completely new project. Here is the website: http://www.thecoophtx.co No website says nothing but "coming soon" as of now. Anyone have any additional info? I'll try to post pictures soon.
  17. Noticed the sidewalk was closed with a green construction fence the other day for a renovation of the ground floor space. The upstairs is an Avis at 812 St. Joseph Pkwy. Sorry for the blurry pic. Is this going to be an office or retail?
  18. I live in a house in Eastwood where there are no buried storm drains and sidewalks are intermittent at best. Are there any restrictions against removing the remnants of what was once sidewalk and paving (with brick) the area between my house and the street, which is shallow? I plan to extend the drainage pipe that is currently under my driveway along the length of my property.
  19. The Heights Arts Studios and Gallery has taken over what was previously a grocery store at 129 Aurora St, at the corner of Aurora and Harvard. Just two blocks from their first building, a 9 studio gallery on 27th St., the new building on Aurora houses 20 artist studios. Their first public event is this Saturday, December 8th from 12pm to 6pm, right before Lights in the Heights! Enjoy refreshments and art for days while you take a tour of the facilities...some of the studios include
