Had too much at Noveau Antique? You're in luck!

 

Seriously I don't understand how the east side of Midtown keeps getting this stuff.

This is actually a good development for the neighborhood. The reason the east side get's "this stuff" is because the majority of that side of the neighborhood is families. Now within that 3 to 4 block radius you have a dentist, a nice park, etc. IMO a development like this is better for the quality of life. In much the same way the new Crime Stoppers building serves a similar purpose.

Hey guys?

Do we know what 2202 La Branch is?

 

Edit: Is this the lot that's had the Spine Rehab sign on it for months?

Not sure, im assuming they're taking core samples. I drive past there every day as well. It would be a great location for a cafe. I feel that area has so much residential and is pretty under served. I dont know of any coffee/sandwich shops within walking distance of Baldwin park. 

 

This is on the plat report for next week's meeting - more townhouses :|

"Colina Court on Elgin"

more townhouses = more people 

more people = more demand for retail

more demand for retail = greater chance of cool retail center popping up

all this -> more demand for housing, forcing midrises

 

 

I wonder how long it will be before a developer buys a block of 36 town houses and builds a condo building or apartment building.  It'll be years, but how many years?

Proposed development at Caroline and McGowen dubbed "Midtown Common"

I really thought they were going to wait to try to assemble the whole block, but I'm glad this is moving forward.  This area needs a shot in the arm, which hopefully this development and ATMA across the street will provide.  Fingers crossed for GFR!!!

From Houstonia:

Holman Draft Hall: Following the recent debut of dual-concepts Heights Bier Garten and Worcester’s Annex, the Kirby Group will roll out another bar project soon in Midtown. Details remain under wraps, but patrons can expect a variety of beers, wines, and cocktails on the menu.

I noticed that  Mama's Grocery in the 4th ward has been sold!  Also, the next lot over is for sale. This should really clean up Robin street, between Bailey and wilson. 

 

According to HCAD, Fourth Ward Redevelopment Authority bought the old grocery store at 1409 Bailey.  Im very curious what the motive is here. I really hoped it was a private buyer.

Body shop at 2815 San Jacinto listed on today's daily demo report. I don't know if there's something planned to take it's place.

I've known a number of folks over the years who thought that was the best German car repair place in town.

I saw them taking down the back part between the auto shop and larger building on Friday. There were also guys repaying the soffit and roof of the space next to the dance studio on the corner. Seems promising.

Looks like this is being built in the lot next to Rich's, fronting San Jacinto.

There is a sign/ad up at the old Fuzzy's location for 8000 sqft multi-tenant living coming soon. I didn't catch the realtor name nor am I sure on the exact location. If its Fuzzy's it will be interesting to see if they took up the old lot as well with structure and include a structure for parking.

That one is River Oaks.

From Swamplot

The landscape of adorably-named taco shops grows ever denser — Baja fast-casual restaurant Fuzzy’s Tacos will continue its spread south from Cypress, creeping into the space at 2015 W. Gray St., in the parking lot behind the River Oaks Theater. The Fort Worth export will move into the freestanding building on Peden St. at the back of the shopping center, following the 8-month tapas act of Pesca World Seafood (which  shuttered in 2013 after replacing Tinto’s that same year).
