  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.
  2. 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:
  3. http://www.avalondiner.com/riveroaks.html http://splendidtable.publicradio.org/where...valondiner.html://http://www.avalondiner.com/riveroak...ndiner.html ://http://www.avalondiner.com/riveroak...diner.html Announced on radio this morning. Real bummer for long time Houstonians and everyone really.
  4. 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
  5. 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:
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. I know this topic was talked about in another thread (Pavilions, I think), but I don't believe it has it's own thread. Anyways I was in Houston for a wedding last weekend and I was staying at the Four Seasons, so I wandered across the bridge to the shops to check them out. Very pathetic, horrible tenant mix, nobody was there (granted it was a Sat.) but there was definitely A LOT of potential. It was very similar to the Galleria..design wise and obviously on a much smaller scale. I was thinking if they opened it up to the street more and/or the outside in general it would be a very enjoyable experience, as I wandered around I found a newspaper like receptacle that had the Houston Center's "Magazine", anyways it was basically all about the planned renovation. They plan to make it an "Urban Park" inside, in fact they used that term A LOT. They have some of the info. on their website if you want to check it out, but it's much more in-depth in the mag, I'd scan it if I had the technology and the knowledge, unfortunately I have neither.
