  4. University Breaks Ground on $3M Arts Center By Jennifer D. Duell HOUSTON-Cultural art lovers today will celebrate the groundbreaking of the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts, a $3-million undertaking tied into the $4.5-million expansion and renovation of the Wortham Theater Complex. An official groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. today in the Fine Arts Quadrangle at entrance 16 off Cullen Boulevard. The center, which will be housed in the Wortham Theater Complex, will include exterior and interior work to enhance the lobby space of the existing facility, provide office area for the Mitchell Center and add new rehearsal space. "It will be a nice addition to the campus," says John Dennis, project manager for Dallas-based Cadence McShane Corp., which is in charge of the expansion and renovation. San Antonio, TX-based Lake/Flato Architects Inc. is providing architectural services for the center's demolition, renovation and construction. Dennis tells GlobeSt.com that the project will take about nine months to finish and will require 35 to 50 construction professionals to complete. Cadence McShane will initially demolish the interior of the existing performing arts center and reconstruct 15,000 sf on two floors. The area will house classrooms plus ballet practice and rehearsal rooms. "There's a lot of wood paneling, acoustical plasters, stainless steel window frames, metal panels and cut stone," Dennis describes. "[The renovations] really complement the existing building." While the theater itself will retain the name Lyndall Finley Wortham Theatre, the building as a whole will be renamed to the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts. The project was funded primarily by a $20-million gift from George and Cynthia Mitchell, along with a grant from the Wortham Foundation and Allen Becker. The center will create a collaborative alliance of the university's premier academic and arts departments in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. The alliance weds the art department, Blaffer Gallery, creative writing program, Moores School of Music and the theater school.
  5. I was browsing the newspaper The Jewish Herald-Voice dated September 22, 1938 and came across a Happy New Year ad from Mr. and Mrs. Joe Levit and Family - 2612 Wheeler. I assume this was where Joe Levit lived back in 1938. Back then, they used to include a residential address to go a long with the news article, or photograph. The Hines Life Science development called Levit Green is named after Joe Levit and his family. Very cool!

  7. I was browsing the newspaper The Rice Thresher dated February 12, 1964 and came across this business ad for Monarch Bowling Alley located Old Spanish Trail & Scott Street. Given it was in the 1960s, did anyone ever go here and bowl? Are there any pictures of this place, or postcards? I'd love to hear some memories! Coming Saturday... the one... the only.. Grundelet presented by The Rally Club and featuring the hairy navel contest between the following distinguished John "Jelly Roll" Mims, Bart "Hirsute" Huemmer, Gibson "Umbilicus" Anderson. Saturday, Feb. 15. 9 till 1. T.J. McWright's Combo. Free Beer. $3.50 Couple.
  8. From the planning commission. This school is looking to expand. Seems they are asking the city if they (COH) will allow for the abandonment of a large part of Hadley St. Anyone know if there are any renders for this one? Glad to see a school in this area get some upgraded facilities. Seems like some recreational facilities will be added to this campus as well.
  9. Below is picture of my Grandfather "lou Turbeville". I'm told he was 3 time Southwest Champion racing in the 40's and 50's. Raced against Doc Cossey, AJ Foyt Sr. My Father at one time had several pics of him and AJ as kids in the pits.
  10. I'm looking for photos,I know about the three that are part of the digitized Bob Bailey Collection at UT, but was wondering if any others exist. Would also like to hear from anyone who skated at the Polar Wave.
  11. I was browsing University of Houston's The EXtra magazine dated March 12, 1949 and noticed a business ad for Famous Chicken House located at Telephone Rd. & Old Spanish Trl. / Highways 90-A and 35. "Chicken and More Chicken" Anyone remember this place?
  12. Anyone know if this one is currently under construction? Exact address is not listed. Edit: Here's the site. Guess they'll have to wait until construction on Campus Vue wraps up. http://www.domusstudiogroup.com/#!the-annex/c1xea

  14. Proposed Riverside Terrace historic district has longtime residents fighting for their neighborhood
  15. I didn't see this anywhere else, so here goes... A new folk-art inspired greenspace called Smither Park is being planned for the 1/2 acre lot adjacent to the Orange Show. The park's development is being sponsored by the Orange Show in memory of John H. Smither. The design is by Dan Phillips (although I can't tell if he's doing the overall park layout or just the pieces within the park). Here's the website: http://smitherpark.org/Smither_Park_Website/Welcome.html ... and a rendering (found on the site):
  16. Never knew about the BCM schools around town. Here's another one located in third ward. https://www.houstonisd.org/domain/40476 Students will have the opportunity to earn high school credits, explore pathways in health and biomedical science, and become ready for challenging high school academic programs.
  17. For the past 25 years Texas Southern University has been a joke. The school has no real admission standards (no ACT or SAT required for entry), its administrators are constantly caught up in verifiable scandal, and the school is constantly in financial trouble. The article below id further evidence of this. The alumni who have gone on to succeed after graduation have probably done so IN SPITE OF, rather than because of the value of a Texas Southern University Degree. Barbara Jordan would be outraged and probably hanging her head low right now. I challenge all TSU alumni, administrators, faculty, students, and Houstonians in general to show some pride and demand better from this institution, otherwise I'm all for a "hostile takeover" by U of H or another state school. Drastic times call for drastic measures. ______________________________________________________________________________ Jan. 26, 2007, 12:58AM Perry orders regents to fix TSU finances 'Not happy' with the officials, governor gives them up to 45 days to plan By POLLY ROSS HUGHES AND MATTHEW TRESAUGUE Copyright 2007 Houston Chronicle AUSTIN — Startled by the depth of Texas Southern University's multimillion-dollar financial woes, Gov. Rick Perry has ordered its board of regents to start making "tough decisions" to fix the problems or resign. "It can't be a Mickey Mouse deal," Perry spokesman Robert Black told the Houston Chronicle on Thursday. "It can't be a Band-Aid." In private meetings last week, Perry demanded that TSU's regents come up with a concrete plan within 30-45 days to start fixing problems plaguing the university's finances this year. Next week, the terms of three of TSU's nine regents expire, giving Perry the opportunity to name new members. Perry also plans to announce a blue-ribbon panel that will develop a long-term plan for TSU, including defining its academic mission. One fear, which the governor's office said it hopes to avoid, is that TSU would be merged into another university. Houston Democrats Sen. Rodney Ellis and Rep. Garnet Coleman underscored the importance of protecting the historically black university and keeping it independent. They noted its long history in shaping Houston's black middle class. "TSU is in the neighborhood where I grew up. It isn't just an institution I represent," Coleman said. "It's more than that. TSU represents some of the best of black Texas and black Houston." Ellis said he is a graduate of the university, along with political notables including the late U.S. Reps. Barbara Jordan and Mickey Leland and lawyer and former U.S. Congressman Craig Washington. Ellis, complaining that Texas' two historically black universities have been underfunded since their inception, said he hopes Perry's actions will prove positive for TSU. "I'm glad he's stepping up to the plate," he said. "Let's hope he's correcting that historical wrong." Yet, with TSU asking the Legislature for millions in emergency funds and financial help while its money matters are "in shambles," Black said, lawmakers are apt to lose patience. "It can't be the same old, same old. They're going to have to make the hard decisions to correct these issues," he said. . . Read the rest of the article here.
  18. Anyone remember Palm Center, the FIRST mall in Houston? It was at South Park (now MLK) and Griggs. I remember there was a Penney's there as the main anchor. A grocery store was the other main anchor. This was built in the early 50's. Across the street was Loma Linda Mexican Restaurant which was basically the only Mexican Restaurant in the area. Hard to believe but i didn't like Mexican food back then and i always ate the children's plate, which was turkey and french fries. I think they "sold" it to the current owners on Telephone.
  19. Apparently the appreciation for the benefits of park living has caught on in the Third Ward. This is one of two new projects across the street from MacGregor Park. One at the east end of the park and one at the west end. Both are on O.S.T. They appear to be fairly contemporary townhomes. The one at 4720 O.S.T. is farther along and now has particle board siding attached. I'm sure with the construction of the Medical school on the park has also influenced developers. Hopefully when Hindesky and Highrise tower make their rounds they can take some images of these projects along with 4320 O.S.T.
  20. http://www.newquest.com/Content/properties/681/OST_Scottcrest.pdf Another development near UH
  21. I live across the bayou from these apartments located at 3200 N. MacGregor and Sampson and noticed a few nights ago that it was completely dark at night. No lights whatsoever. I thought it was a power outage until I drove by and saw the parking lot was empty except for 2 cars. I guess they've been abandoned. Did they get bought out or are they undergoing renovations or what?
