  1. What's up with the Cushman & Wakefield land at the intersection of Stella Link & Willowbend? The land is also boundaries S. Main street. The Cushman & Wakefield sign has been there for over a decade. Why isn't anybody buying it I wonder? Loopnet listing: https://www.loopnet.com/listing/stella-link-rd-houston-tx/9142740/
  2. 5.51-Acres at Linkwood near Buffalo Speedway. Minutes away from the medical center. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/3511-Linkwood-Dr-Houston-TX/24016643/
  3. Anyone have insights on living in Breas Heights? Thanks.
  4. Formerly known as Main Link Biotechnology Park located at 10301 Stella Link Rd. I dropped by today and saw Clark Condon Associates and a BioTech company named Neurogene. Loopnet listing: https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/10301-Stella-Link-Rd-Houston-TX/18253590/
  5. Any updates regarding this shopping center? It's located at Stella Link & South Braeswood. The shopping center has been doing very poorly over the years. Lots of vacancies and no remodels. Looked around on DMRE's website today. Looks like the property was sold. 9.70 acres. Future housing or a major retail redevelopment? https://dmre.com/property/stella-link-and-braeswood-9-70-acres/ Old site plan.
  6. Not exactly sure which office building complex this includes. Johnson Supply at 10151 Stella Link included or is it only the office at 10301 Stella Link? This would make for great multifamily residential.
  7. What is happening across the street at the former Wells Fargo at 4018 S. Braeswood?
  8. Found this rendering w/board the other day. Looks like a big improvement! Actually sort of reminds me of the Beldens Shopping Center, the Chase bank on the corner.
  9. My father-in-law was a native Houstonian, and he used to talk about an old illegal casino/brothel(?) out Hwy 90. He said it existed after WWII and up into the 1950's. There was an old brick gatehouse just west of the current Beltway on the south side of 90 that he said belonged to the casino...does anyone know about this, or was my late father-in-law yankin' my chain?
  10. Memories for the area just out side the loop in zip coeds 77096 77035 & about 1/3 of 77025 I remember before the walmart south Poast Oak & 610 was built in the late 80s to early 90s there use to be a golf course there.

  11. I don't think so, but I'm not positive. I always thought that the track came after the park was built. Maybe Sparky can comment. There was a dirt track off Stella Link between Bray's Bayou and Bellaire Blvd back in the late 20's - mid 30's, referred to as Bellaire Speedway, I think.
  12. Bounded by South Main, Willowbend, and Stella Link. It went almost to O'Meara on the north. It was called South Main Golf Club. By the time I got to Houston in 1968 it was a nine hole course, but each hole had two distinct tee boxes so you could play 18 holes that were different. It lasted, in a shrinking footprint, into some time in the 90s or early 00s.
  13. Menninger Pathfinder At 6912 Stella Link Rd. https://www.menningerclinic.org/treatment/treatment-for-young-adults/outpatient-programs/pathfinder Need a place to land after inpatient treatment?

  14. Couple interesting things I saw on My Stella Link walk yesterday. First: The Zone Sports @ Main Link Business Park http://thezonesports.com/ And Second: Woodshire Village Estates between 610 and Braeswood. Stella Link always makes me think of A Streetcar Named Desire
  15. I was driving around the Med Center today and decided to go check out Linkwood and the surrounding neighborhoods. I'm not sure all of the exact neighborhood names, but the area I'm referring to is south of S Braeswood, north of 610, and Stella Link and Buffalo Speedway run between the three different sections (with Linkwood being in the middle). The homes seemed older (streets old too), with not a lot of street lighting. There were some very nice, new homes and some awesome older mods. Linkwood Park seemed nice, but there were a chunk of older apartment complexes right around it. Longfellow looked like a nice school. I guess I'd like to get any resident's opinions on this area. In particular: 1. Is Longfellow a good school? What about Pershing middle school? 2. How is crime in these neighborhoods? When looking on Houston Crime Maps, I see that home break-ins seem to be the more popular crime in the area. Do the nearby older apartments cause any problems? Would you feel safe walking around at night? I could tell by just driving around, it seemed empty during the day and was wondering what police response times were like in this neighborhood. 3. What is your overall opinion of these areas? Are there a lot of kids around here, or older residents? 4. Do these homes flood? Overall, I was impressed with Braeswood and the bayou (very pretty along it), but am not sure what to think of these hoods. There were a good chunk of yards not well kept, everything seemed older, and it felt like a place my grandparents would live as opposed to younger families. Thanks for your help in advance.
  16. I wonder if anyone has noticed that Bellfort is complete all the way now. A small section from Buffalo Speedway to South Main was recently opened. I actually found it quite useful for work as a way to get around the South Main traffic jams at 610. I had a work project in the area and just happened to notice it was there. One interesting thing is that there are barricades where Old Main St. Loop Road once ran. Glad to see someone remembered that road. With Bellfort complete, I can now realize that those old dashed lines on the map can now be filled in. Looks like Buffalo Speedway is also under construction. What other dashed roads of the old maps of 50 years ago are now under construction?
  17. Greetings. Wondering if anyone is aware of a link to an aerial of the old South Main Drive In near Stella Link and what is now Willowbend? Or any other old photos of it for that matter. Thanks in advance, Neil
  18. The people who claim they moved to the burbs for "better schools" need a reality check. Many of the best schools in the Houston are located inside the Beltway and many Inside the Loop. Public- HSPVA, Vanguard, Lamar, Bellaire, Health Professions, Criminal Justice, Memorial, Westside, and Stratford come to mind. Prviate- St John's, Kinkaid, Episcopal, Awty, Emery-Wiener, Duchesne, St Thomas, Strake, St Agnes, etc...
  19. The Houston Chronicle has an article about this: http://search.chron.com/chronicle/openDocu...p;selectedPath= The new Pershing Middle School campus will open on Wednesday, January 17, 2006. Pershing, a Houston ISD school, serves the cities of Southside Place, West University Place, and Bellaire as well as sections of Houston around the areas, such as Braeswood Place, Southgate, Old Braeswood, Westwood, and a sliver of Meyerland. The kids were allowed to tag the old 1948 campus with graffiti (such as "Name" was here).
  20. I'm very interested in learning more about the old 'Westwood' subdivision which lies just south of the Loop and west of Stella Link. I grew up in this neighborhood in the late fifties and early sixties and attended Shearn Elementary School from 1959 to 1964. I have so very many fond memories of my childhood there but have not visited or had any contact with the area for well over thirty years. I currently live in Southern California and have heard and read reports that the area had fallen on some pretty tough times in the past three decades. I do not know if my old neighborhood avoided the problems associated with the general area or not. I lived at 4118 Omeara Drive, and I recall that Oboe Drive bisected Omeara right where our house was located. I believe that most of the homes in this neighborhood were built in the fifties. They were small tract houses but had a lot of nice features - a lot of windows, hardwood floors, tile bathrooms and kitchens, nice yards, etc. I also remember that there was a UTOTEM Store near the corner of Omeara and Stella Link and a Weingartens further north near Braes Bayou. Anyway, I'd love to hear from anyone who knows about this area - where it's been, where it is now...and, where it's going. Westwood was truly a wonderful and secure little world back in the fifties and early sixties with a lot of young, upwardly mobile families (still at the height of the Postwar Baby Boom).

  21. The par 3 course between Stella Link and Main, Willowbend was the southern boundary, was called South Main Golf Club. When I moved to Houston in '68 it was not a par three course but had 4's and 5's also. (I lived two houses off Stella Link on hole 2). It went as far north as the old apartments on O'Meara on the north. There is a bar called Sammy's Fifth Hole at Stella Link and Bellfort where the fifth hole ended.
  22. THE 'WOW' FACTOR New branch library has contemporary cool cachet By CLIFFORD PUGH Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle When John Middleton recently led a tour through the new John P. McGovern Stella Link Branch Library, a high school student enthusiastically compared the entrance, with a wavy gold plastic awning that floats over large glass doors, to the hip Ikea store. Middleton smiled. That's what he was hoping to hear. "We wanted a 'wow' factor," says the Houston Public Library's project manager for design and construction. Coolness is elusive, as companies can attest. Apple has it right now; Microsoft doesn't. With the new $5.6 million Stella Link branch, library officials have captured a cool cachet by busting the notion of what a library should be like. In the old days before the Internet transformed information-gathering, libraries were often dimly lit places where beverages were banned; and if you spoke above a whisper, a librarian would quickly "shush" you. But now, with competition from bookstores where comfy chairs, coffee bars and wireless Internet access invite lingering, libraries across the nation have to keep up or lose their relevance. In Seattle, the $165 million Rem Koolhaas-designed central library
