Almeda has always been more of a industrial park to me. It runs a bit too far to the east of the med center, barely reaches midtown and doesnt actually reach downtown at all. I wish it was different. I love the brick intersections in the BINZ area. Many of the building along that stretch are beautiful.

Being from Pearland I also view it as a rural highway. I've always liked those big steel train depots that run along almeda down along the tracks. What were they for? Oil?

I think one day it will be maybe widened and landscaped nicely and made into, as Lowbrow said, kind of an urban boulevard alternative. But there's nothing happening in Third Ward right now and the Midtown section is really the edge. The OST section is still rough too, although the Med Cntr is slowly spreading that way.

It is potentially a great location for development all along it but this inner-city boom of ours is really just in it's first or second wave so we have a lots of pockets of development without anything really filled in yet so that area sort of lies in wait for maybe a upcoming huge wave 3.

One thing I've noticed about Houston's inner city new development is that it is occuring everywhere. No one location is the focus and receiving all the attention. It's like the developing resources spreading thin in the loop and so it occurs more slowly.

If all the new development we see in the loop was focused on one area, we would be see that area have massive changes.
