  1. Corpus TXDOT approved for a new $ 1 billion dollar bridge replacement of the current 1953-built span. Construction set to begin in 2016 and will take 5 years. When complete, the new 4-mile long span will become the longest cable-stayed bridge in the nation, 3rd longest in the world. http://www.kiiitv.com/story/28946603/new-harbor-bridge-to-be-longest-cable-stayed-bridge-in-nation
  2. I remember one of the department stores in The Gulfgate Mall having a made of wood place where they hung blue jeans. I remember thinking how cool it was. It was during the 1970s. It really looked 70s style too. It kind of reminded me of something that came out of a television series or sitcom from the 1970s. I wish that was still there in The Gulfgate Mall. So many memories are not there anymore, how sad!

  4. I couldn't find an actual topic on SH 249 (Tomball parkway) and its expansion up to ~ Navasota. So here's some background for anyone interested: HCTRA expanded SH249 to Tomball as Phase 1 of a multi-phase extension of SH249. This was completed and opened in 2015. https://hctra.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=527d9322e2244039b0bc3e93fe2c4fc1 The plan is for SH249 to ultimately terminate at SH 105 roughly close to Navasota, hence the nickname the "Aggie Tollway" or "Aggie Highway". This extension seems to be broken up be
  5. Morning everyone! So I thought it would be fun to challenge the community a bit. As a community that discusses so much about architecture/infrastructure it really seems a bit odd that I don't see a lot of forum submitted proposals or ideas for Houston, but not just some description of it or a post from a news source, but actual drawings or planning of these ideas. I know it's in there somewhere lol Everyone is very passionate about this city with an enormous amounts of opinions on how Houston should function going forward. I would really like to see this in action, and tap into that! Wheth
  6. I took this a few weeks ago. It was raining off and on all day, I decided to test my luck with a long exposure and I was pretty impressed with the outcome! Canon T2i 18-55mm f8 30sec exposure ISO 100 heres a link to my Flickr page https://www.flickr.com/photos/32411159@N05/15978858013/
  7. The Houston Section of the American Planning Association Texas Chapter is hosting its fall signature event, " The Texas Big Six 2040 Workshop". With a horizon year of 2040, the planning directors from Texas' six largest cities, Austin, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio, will present about the major plans, policies, and projects currently underway that will shape the livability, resiliency, and competitiveness of these cities and our region's future. This is one of the few times in history the planning directors from the states' largest cities have been convened for a single

  10. Well this was something fun to read this morning! I was wondering when they were going to build a new pier, but didn't know about the zoning restrictions. Anyone see any renderings or sketches of this yet? Here is the link to the chron article: http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Zoning-change-gives-huge-boost-to-plans-for-new-5517068.php#photo-6379411
  11. Maybe this kind of question has already been asked before, but just curious to see what architects some of you really like and what you want them to do for Houston. By the way this is anywhere! Houston, Texas, USA, the world. You could even split it up into dream architects and ones you think could be possible if that helps some of you xD. What are some top architecture firms that you like? What are some up in coming architecture firms/ architects on your radar? What architect/firm would you really like to design buildings in Houston? If this firm did design something, what would you
  12. Hello all! I've been working on creating a map of the Abandoned Railroads of Texas. I'm attaching the files so y'all can check it out. You do it by opening the file in Google Earth. If you already have GE installed you should be able to open it by double clicking. Anyways I used Google Earth's historic imaging, Historic Aerials, and a few old maps. I should state that in its current stage the map is far from finished although I'm quickly running out of known railroads to map. If you know of a railroad I've missed please let me know! Also I would love to get some feedback on the maps. They're c
  13. In the 1970s and the 1980s, I remember going to Pizza Hut or was it Pizza Inn on Boardway driving to Hobby Airport (driving away from I-45). It in the parking lot by Red Lobster! It had a beautiful stain glass window in the Pizza Hut or was it Pizza Inn. I love sitting by that window! If anyone remember that table which people wrote on, it was pretty interesting. I do not believe it is a good thing though. I love the 1960s or the 1970s style picture of that woman with long flowing hair. Pardon my grammar and spelling. That bring back great memories! ~Juliet Shohreh Nour~
  14. I remember going to The Houston Galleria when I was a child during the 1970s and I took ice skating lessons there too during the 1970s and the 1980s. I remember they played disco music and other types of music and they had psychedic light which shined on the ice skating rink during the night time hours, it was so fun! I miss those days! I remember going to a restaurant at The Houston Galleria which was like a melt shop or ice cream shop and the waiters and waitresses would wear red and white large stripes hats and uniforms. They also had a gift shop which you walked through before you left
  15. I was born on June 13, 1972 in Houston Texas! I was born and raised in Houston Texas (I still live in Houston Texas), but I have traveled a lot though. My grandfather (my mother's stepfather) died on Friday October 02, 2009 and my grandmother (my mother's mother) died on November 15, 2011 (I believe that is the correct date). But all my grandparents has passed away. Let's get started on my topic! I remember going to the Gulfgate Movie Theater in the 1970s and the 1980s, and I remember the stain glassed window (pardon my grammar and spelling), does anyone remember that beautiful stain glas
  16. Subjects Queen Park Shadow Meadows Lanes - Bowling Alley The Grocery Store By Queen Park The Burger King in the Queen Park and Shadow Meadow Lane Area I remember my grandfather (my mother's stepfather) taking me to Queen Park, the grocery by the Queen Park, Shadow Meadows Lanes, and the Burger King in the same area.
