  1. Building permit issued for their rebuild. They flooded years ago and just now rebuilding.
  2. Waiting on this land to be developed. Here's a blurb from Swamplot http://swamplot.com/willowbend-strip-center-soil-ready-for-planting-of-new-townhome-farm/2015-07-08/ Here's the land as of today Phase I, InTown Homes Willowbend https://www.intown-homes.com/Willowbend
  3. Here is something recently mentioned on Swamplot. Does anyone know anything about this project? http://www.kirksey.com/project/buffalo_lakes_master_plan Page 10 of this PDF http://www.ridemetro.org/ProjectsPrograms/PDFs/90A_Media_Briefing_020711.pdf shows rail going through the project.
  4. Noticed some cool machines on the train tracks. Anyone know what they are for?
  5. Noticed a large housing development a long Buffalo Speedway ear West Orem by K. Hovnanian Homes. Brentwood subdivision. Looks like some of the land is reserved for a church expansion and other future uses. Lots of land out in the area of Buffalo Speedway. I've been watching it develop. In 20 years all the trees will disappear.
  6. The old shack at the train tracks is for sale. The old shack has been a blight on the neighborhood for 20 years. Simon Printing owns the shack and their warehouse. Believe COVID-19 shuttered the business. Friend of mine was terminated. Loopnet listing, https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/10810-Craighead-Dr-Houston-TX/19222001/
  7. Hi all, I'm moving in to Post Oak Manor next month and I had been very concerned about whats going on just behind the neighborhood...then I ran across this: This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 960x768 and weights 88KB. I think this is great, and I really hope it creates a natural barrier between Main and the new tollroads to the south. Does anyone know what the current project status is? Also, any useful info about Post Oak Manor and Willowbrook / WillowBend would be great. Does Post Oak Manor have an active Civic club? Thanks
  8. What's up with the Cushman & Wakefield land at the intersection of Stella Link & Willowbend? The land is also boundaries S. Main street. The Cushman & Wakefield sign has been there for over a decade. Why isn't anybody buying it I wonder? Loopnet listing: https://www.loopnet.com/listing/stella-link-rd-houston-tx/9142740/
  9. Does anybody remember this? My little sister was at Red at the time and I was at Johnston. Mass killer counts down to freedom /Survivor painfully recalls '73 rampageHouston - Karen Kurtz's scarred right leg begins to ache every afternoon, and she has to use a cane to get around, every painful step a reminder of her brush with Houston's first mass murderer. She was walking home from Red Elementary School on a spring morning 25 years ago when Larry Delon Casey, angry following an argument with his girlfriend, drove intersection to intersection gunning down little girls with a .22-caliber rifle.
  10. Do any of your guys have photos or info on what I have always known as the "old Meyer property" at the NE corner of 610 Loop South & S. Post Oak, right across the freeway from the MeyerPark retail property. I know there were some scenes from a movie shot at this location, there appears to be the old footprint of a home, and there is (or was) a small retail building at the SE corner of this property that used to be a gas station ( i think ). Anyone have any citable information about this property or any photos? HCAD.org doesn't describe it at all except for the northern edge next to the
  11. Does anyone know the exact back story on Willow Pool? It is a quite, green oaisis off Cliffwood, and my understanding is that it has been there since the fifties, however it is not visible on the large arial photo of the Westbury area identified as the early 60's.....

  13. Memories for the area just out side the loop in zip coeds 77096 77035 & about 1/3 of 77025 I remember before the walmart south Poast Oak & 610 was built in the late 80s to early 90s there use to be a golf course there. Where the Krogers South Post Oak & West Bellfort is now there use to Beldens which is now at Chimeny Rock & North Brasewood. Behind the Beldens use to be a drug store do not remember the name they sold hamburgers. Where the Cabana Carwash is now there use to a putt putt miniature golf Next to Beldens just south there to use to a AJ Foyt car dealer there Right af
  14. What was the building - warehouse at 4154 W Bellfort originally used for when it was built?? I have lived in the down the street for 35 yrs and I can never remember it being used for much of anything. It is one of the weirdest looking building in the area still has the 50s to 60s look to the building. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Francisco%27s+Studios/@29.6732952,-95.4461657,3a,75y,352.61h,90t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sOstl6FKF2d3mvuId77gAEQ!2e0!4m2!3m1!1s0x0000000000000000:0xc38256c3e2990b0b!6m1!1e1
  15. Growing up in the Willow Bend area in the 1950s, we kids would expect to hear a noontime whistle from one of the industrial businesses off South Main. I never knew which business it was. I'm pretty sure it was not the Southern Pacific Railroad. Anyway, it was a signal to "warm up" our televisions for lunch-time cartoons.
  16. I use to have a old Houston street map from the early to mid 70s and the map showed 2 more streets in willowbend post oak manor. These 2 street were the next 2 street south of warm springs where the private school is now. Where there really 2 more street south of warm springs if so what where the names of these 2 streets & happened to them. On the big field where the school is now what use to be on this site? I am looking for old picture of this field if anybody have any thx
  17. Curious if anyone on here works for Metro or knows the best contact to actually get something done about modifying a route to make more sense. At least to me as a layperson it makes more sense. W. Bellfort is now completely through from Highway 6 to Fannin South. The last segment between S. Main and Buffalo Speedway was just opened. The currently bus line on W. Bellfort is the Number 8, South Main, route. It takes you down W. Bellfort to Stella Link and up Stella Link to S. Braeswood to S. Main to TMC Station to Wheeler Station. Now am I just not thinking logically. Wouldn't it make a whole lo
  18. Anyone know what's going on at this Shell station? They took out the underground tanks and the pumps last week. They backfilled the hole and the windows and doors have been boarded up since. flipper
  19. Does anyone know what is going up at the northwest corner of Woodwind and W. Bellfort, directly across the street from St. George's Church? It used to be a small private school, bu the lot was cleared a year or two ago. They recently began laying underground sewage and plumbing. Anyone? Google maps
  20. When I was a small child in the late 1970's, I took swimming lessons at the YWCA near or on S. Willow. It was called the Peden Y - and I loved it. I also took tumbling classes there...and as I recall it was partically housed in a ramshackle house like structure. I enjoyed running around the building - and I recall that there was a bar area with a soda gun that from time to time actually worked. I recall sneaking off behind that bar area to try to snag a soda. It closed when I was child - and I never understood why. Later my parents joined the ELKS lodge - and our family would go there to swim
  21. We are doing a custom remodel for some people right now where we found the house, negotiated the price, arranged construction financing and are now remodeling the house to their taste. It's working out great. We have a house in the Willowbend subdivision that is available for the same opportunity. If you or someone you know would like the opportunity to have a remodeled home in this neighborhood that is remodeled to your taste before you have to move in please contact me for details. flipper
  22. My wife and I have found a house we very much like in Post Oak Manor (South of Willowbend, East of South Post Oak). We've talked to 1 or 2 residents and they have said the area is very safe, but I am unsure. Do any of you have any experience or advice with this neighborhood or Westbury? Specifically the strip of South Post Oak from 610 to 90 just seems very rough. Should I be worried about this when buying a house several blocks from here? Any help or advice is very much appreciated..
  23. Went to the lovely park next door to the 610/Meyer Park Walmart and across from the AMC movie house I've been to lots: Tried to feet the cute ducks with some old bagels we had and they didn't go for it. Looked across the street and noticed that the AMC 16 was closed. Had no idea. I think it was kind of going downhill from last movie seen there. During the prevues the sound went off and didn't come back on until the feature film. Didn't like that as I love the prevues.
  24. Does anyone know if there is a relatively new halfway house or residential treatment facility in the Willowbend area? It would likely be between Stella Link and S. Post Oak and works prmarily with late teens?
  25. Bellaire Examiner is reporting today that they are planning to cut down several large trees including the gigantic live oak that stands in the middle of the property. According to the Advisory board this is necessary to avoid cutting down '30' others. Here is the quote from the paper - "By sacrificing two trees, we saved 30 other trees and the view. It also maximized green space. The benefit of laying out the fields in this way, where the backstop is against the school is that the neighbors will be looking at trees not bleachers" As stated in the paper I can see that these people were grappli
