  1. Weslayan Plaza announcement: Goodbye Chuck E., hello Torchy http://www.instantnewsbellaire.com/weslayan-plaza-announcement-goodbye-chuck-e-hello-torchy/
  2. I thought there was already a thread about this, but I can't find one, so I will include all the information I know. At 2715 Bissonnet in West U, diagonally across the street from the old Coca Cola bottling plant, there is a two-story shopping center from the 1960s or 1970s, which is being torn down for redevelopment. Plans for redevelopment have been going on for a while; this flyer was posted in 2017 when a company called Edge was marketing it. More recently, BPI realty has been marketing it, with the following rendering common to both flyers, showing a on
  3. Anyone know the low down on "Darth Vader's" house on the corner of Buffalo Speedway and University? That's what my kids call the all black house that's been there for quite a while. Very prominent.
  4. Upcoming road work at Buffalo Speedway near Holcombe Blvd. in West University. https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/TABS/Search/Project/TABS2020021433
  5. Anchored by Randalls. Vanderbilt Square at 3003-3191 W. Holcombe Blvd Houston, TX 77025 https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/3003-3191-W-Holcombe-Blvd-Houston-TX/16840844/

  7. Found this today. I'm not sure how long it has been there. Pipeline Realty seems to have several projects in the area http://www.pipelinerealty.com/category/retail/
  8. Are being developed Nothing to write home about, but thread worthy perhaps. the eye center looks kinda cool. The Eastern Lot: The Western:
  9. The hard copy paper version mentioned specifically that they anticipated the Bissonnet location would get redeveloped and cited its proximity to West U, but without zoning since it's in Houston "Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages plans to close its two existing plants, one off Bissonnet and the other off Gulfgate, after moving its production and distribution operations to Pinto Business Park." https://www.chron.com/business/real-estate/article/Coca-Cola-to-build-1M-square-foot-bottling-plant-12955383.php
  10. Is looking like its going to be a master-piece! I love the way it engages the street, going right up to the setback instead of putting the parking lot in front. Has a butterfly roof. Really looking forward to this. Will take some pictures.
  11. Public hearing to be held at the Southside Place City Hall Council Chambers, 6309 Edloe Ave., Southside Place, Texas, on Tuesday, January 29 at 7pm. Southside Place wants allow 45 townhomes (3-1/2 stories tall) to be built at 3747 Bellaire Blvd. (the corner of Bellaire Blvd. at Auden/Braes -- the former location of Shell Oil Research). They are seeking to rezone the property from LIM (Low Intensity Mixed Use) to PD (Planned Development) and also would like to break the building height restrictions. Houses and townhomes in that area have been limited to 2-1/2 stories in the past, but the deve
  12. Driving down Buffallo Speedway and noticed the church St. Vincent de Pau is doing a new chapel.
  13. The Location is 4211 Bellaire Blvd which is the site of Black Eye Peas

  15. The Allusion West University is going to replace the old Courts at West University. Allusion will be 231 residences. Six stories - four residential over two parking. Linky: http://blog.chron.com/primeproperty/2012/10/developers-move-ahead-on-luxury-complex-near-west-u/
  16. You read that right. And its being built by Lovett Homes. Its great to see real architect designed houses pop up again in West U. http://search.har.com/engine/3212-Georgetown-West-University-TX-77005_HAR57132449.htm
  17. Dear all, I plan to build a house in West U. Am lookink for an architect to design a modern style 3000 s.f. home on a 50 by 100 lot. I have two questions: 1. I would really appreciate recommendation of a capable and affordable architect who can do the design work for me. I have a budget around 7 grand. I am not looking for some fancy stuff, just a modern style home with open floor plan and some of my own "wants and desires." 2. I learned from this forum that the design cost is around $2/s.f.; however, when I called a couple of architect company, they are asking for 4-7% of the building cost,
  18. Sad story in the examiner about the auto repair shop on Edloe being forced out. I can't imagine what a developer would want to do with that location since JMH is already sitting there idle and no one has stepped up to redevelop that location. Makes we wonder what is to be the future of "downtown". If there were more cafe/restaurant/shopping options we would walk over there a lot more often, but it's such an isolated location I don't think it can support all that with competition from the village being so close. examiner story
  19. The notoriously smelly West University sewage plant doesn't have the trees around it anymore (because of "Homeland Security" reasons) and apparently the smell is wafting farther out now. Honestly, I drive by here often and it has smelled as bad as it always had. Maybe I just caught it at a good time... http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=...article-6842622
  20. I didn't see a thread up on this yet; if I missed it I apologize. Southside Place approved Koontz-McCombs to develop a mid-rise apartment building where the Blair House apartments are now. This is the same development company that did City Vista on West Dallas. The location is in place of the red brick apartments next door to the bowling alley on Bellaire Blvd. at Academy. Blair House is an eyesore in that area; empty space would be an improvement, but greater high-end residential density is even better. I'm surprised this got through the P&Z people and city council.

  21. Don't forget Randall's & Whole Foods on Bellaire Blvd, plus the Randall's on Weslayen. The grocery market in the West U area is already saturated; when the "super Kroger" opened, it took a lot of business away from the Weslayen Randall's. The new HEB will probably put the nail in the coffin for the Weslayan Randall's, as it is the oldest grocery store in the area, and was designed to 1980s standards.
  22. I just arrived in Houston this weekend and have been searching for a new apartment for my husband and 9 month old. It's been a grueling process, but I think we've narrowed our search down to 2 complexes: The Village at West University (at 5151 Edloe near the 59) and The Amalfi at Hermann Park. I've read all the reviews of The Village on apartmentratings.com but for some reason can't find a single review of The Amalfi anywhere on the internet (they opened in May 2008 I believe). Does anyone have any experience or feedback regarding either of these 2 complexes? The Village seems to be in a prime
  23. I think there are a lot of great things about both areas but I would like to hear your arguments on this subject. I will post my opinions tomorrow.
  24. http://www.media.rice.edu/media/NewsBot.as...EW&ID=10132 I believe construction has either started or will be starting very soon. I heard bad things about the other graduate apartments in the village, so this is good news. I wonder if this will be for students only (like the grad apartments on Bissonnet), or if they will allow families and married students too.
