  1. 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, f
  2. "3611 Drew Street is a remodel/addition to an existing structure. The original structure was a single story daycare center. The goal of the project is to convert the existing building into 20 micro-loft apartments. The average square footage of each apartment is 300 SF and includes a full size bath and fully equipped kitchen." These units are within walking distance of the University of Houston and judging by the size of the units, they will be geared toward students. https://www.drafthousedesign.studio/3611-drew-street https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/TABS/Projects/TABS2021008213

  9. 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.

  13. I noticed that Jack Yates High School recently got a new Principal in Tiffany Guillory. The big question is whatever happened to Kenneth Davis ? If anybody who is an alumnus of Yates High School knows the situation. Let me know what happened ? https://www.houstonisd.org/Yates
  14. Does anyone know what the Midtown Redevelopment Authority is planning to do with all of the random lots they own? The odd thing is none of them are actually in Midtown. They're in East Downtown and Third Ward. I see 457 lots on HCAD. I'm just interested to know. Thanks for any insight! idtown redev.pdf
  15. "A Transit Oriented Development located in the heart of Houston's historic 3rd ward district. University Place encompasses 8 blocks of redevelopment and will be phased for incremental completion. The redevelopment area is uniquely situated between 2 major universities. The University of Houston and Texas Southern University which include a daily population of over 70,000 students, faculty and staff. Additionally, the location is conveniently situated for access between major highways I-45 & I-59 as well as the newly constructed light rail line." http://www.laidesigngroup.com/mf_univ.h
  16. As Houston is now the most diverse city in the country, I hope our inner-loop neighborhoods come to reflect new residents who add to the existing community, infrastructure and institutions, rather than negate what's there in favor of sterilized versions of what hip urban neighborhoods are "supposed" to be like. Changing neighborhoods are inevitable; however, cookie-cutter gentrified communities don't have to be. Here's a snapshot of my community (Third Ward)...Would love to see pics from other historic inner-loop communities as well.
  17. Does anyone remember the old Wheeler Pharmacy? It was at 4401 Dowling, southeast corner with Wheeler. My mother used to take me there in the early nineteen fifties, after nursery school, for a BLT sandwich at their lunch counter. For decades, post-nursery school, it sat there, unchanged. I never had any reason to venture back into it, till one day, maybe in 1997, I stopped in. It was exactly as I remembered it: the old-fashioned soda fountain/lunch counter taking up the north wall; shelves full of drugstore stuff such as you could still see until not so long ago at the Buffalo Pharmacy and
  18. Looks like a new apartment complex for students will be built close to UH.-Exterior-1-Email.jpg-1-Email.jpg http://blog.chron.com/primeproperty/2013/06/university-of-houston-expands-student-housing/
  19. Can someone confirm if this is true or a joke? This sign is now posted at the corner of Dowling Street and Holman Street in the Third Ward.
  20. 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):
