  3. Went to Houston Baptist University today to visit the Lee and Grant exhibit. http://www.hbu.edu/hbu/About_HBU.asp?SnID=141925366 http://www.hbu.edu/hbu/MOSH_Lee_Grant_Exhibit.asp To be honest, I was not aware that this campus even existed until I looked up where the exhibit was located. I'm not from here originally. They would not let me take any photos of the exhibit. Pissed me off because this was the reason why I took my camera. So, afterwards I walked around this small campus and took some photos of the buildings. (the campus is located in the middle of the triangle created by the int

  5. Hi there fellow Houstonians, I am a first time buyer looking to purchase a home soon. I am 25 years old and do not have any kids so I am not very concerned about the school district, my price range is up to $150k and am only looking to buy a single-family 1900+ sq/ft I am specifically looking to purchase a home in West Houston (between 610 West and Beltway 8). It looks like the areas that can fit my criteria are Sharpstown and Fondren SW. Everybody has been telling me to stay away from Sharpstown because of the high crime rate but I have a notion that for these prices any home will be in a hig
  6. I don't know how many of you know of the hispanic night club called Carnival on Beechnut and 59 in the old K-Mart building. The place is a $#!*hole that is regularly packed beyond capacity only to have crime, drugs, drunk driving and prostitution spill in to the parking lot and streets surrounding it (which happen to be where I live). The stack for criminal complaints from HPD for the past three months at this place is about 5 inches thick. Every night it is open, you will hear gun shots, assaults take place, people get robbed, drunk drivers go flying down neighborhood streets, cars and pro
  7. St. Agnes Academy has bought the old Gillman Dealership property in Sharpstown.

  8. County wants to buy Memorial Hermann SW Hospital district purchase could run to $185 million By PEGGY O'HARE HOUSTON CHRONICLE Aug. 6, 2009, 9:36PM The Harris County Hospital District has tentatively agreed to buy Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital this fall with hopes of expanding medical care access to the uninsured and underprivileged, hospital officials announced Thursday. The sale, if approved by Harris County Commissioners Court, would allow the county's hospital district to add 600 beds to its system to keep up with public demand. Officials with both hospital networks declined to relea
  9. Chronicle article here. Interesting to contrast this suburban-style development with the move towards denser, more pedestrian oriented retail developments inside the Loop.
  10. Was HISD's neglect of the Robert E. Lee campus purposeful? It's a complete dump. Has it been closed yet? I don't believe there are any plans to renovate, am I correct? One would think this is by no accident. Perhaps if it had a different name, HISD might have put forth more effort to save it. My mother was one of the first graduates of this HS and named the yearbook.
  11. I just found this thread about Sharpstown and thought I'd post a link to a post I made in the Historic Houston board: http://www.houstonarchitecture.info/haif/i...indpost&p=71649 I used to know this area intimately (lived at Bellaire & Waldo, I believe the address was 8200 Bellaire). I saw someone's comment that they'd have to drive around the area to help remember where everything was. Man, I feel the same way! I do remember that just west of Sharpstown Country Club there was a grocery store (can't remember which one). That grocery store was at the back of the parking lot and at t
