  1. Montrose, near the intersection of Dunlavy and Westheimer is getting a small boutique hotel. This was on the April 25th agenda asking for a variance request. From the renders it looks like it will be 9 rooms. Its nice that the area is getting stuff like this. I don't know of any other hotels except for the AirBnB hotel concept that is near Agora. Anyone else know of more info? Images Below: Apparently this is being held up due to some strange situations in city ordinances that dictate that a hotel that is under a particular threshold
  2. I've come to term this building the "Merry-go-round" of uses building. This was originally home to a small business called "Flower Vault" which was a weird concept of fancy art walls were people can go and take pics of themselves or products? It catered to the instagram scene. Was there for maybe a year. Now that is out the window. Then about a month ago I saw Flower Vault disappeared. It had a sign for a fancy upscale barbershop, which would have been cool since Cutloose Hair is down the street (one place for girls and another for guys), but last week the temporary sign got pulled
  3. http://swamplot.com/now-its-2-mattress-stores-moving-in-right-next-to-each-other-at-the-corner-of-westheimer-and-montrose/2015-03-24/ Run! Run for your very lives! It's the invasion of the Mattress Stores! Hide the children and hide the wife (or husband....it's an equal world now right ) Let the rest of Houston know where ground zero is of this mattress domination. What did we do to deserve such a fate? ...ok maybe that was little too dramatic, but seriously this is getting ridiculous. Almost becoming a parody!
  4. Greetings - I work at The Awty International School, which was founded in 1956 by Mrs. Katherine Awty. At that time, the school was in a small house located at 3736 Westheimer (where Frank's Chop House is now - just east of the intersection with Wesleyen). Sadly, over the years, no photographs of this house have been saved. I have been tasked with finding such a photo. Whew! So I thought I would come to the experts in Houston buildings and old photos. I would appreciate any help or suggestions. And if someone just happens to have a picture from back then, well, that's what we call a miracle,
  5. What's up with the building at 1740 Westheimer? I remember when it was built maybe 5 years ago, and it has sat empty every since then. Is there any reason for this? It's right on Westheimer in the middle of Montrose on a block that probably gets the most foot traffic of all of Houston aside from Downtown. I don't see why retail couldn't be successful there. If the owner's rental price is too high, then don't you think he would have figured that out in 5 years? Does anybody know why it's still empty?
