Back in the '70's there use to be a McDonalds in the lot next to this building, you can still see the old foundation of it. One of Houston's first punk clubs (Island/Rock Island/Paradise Island) was down the street where the Wendy's currently is. It is going to take an industrial power wash to clean all the urine/excrement off this building.

The Housing and Community Development Department (HCDD) recommends Council approve an Ordinance to appropriate $1,500,000 in HOME funds for a Loan Agreement with Cantwell-Anderson, joined by 4600 Main Street Housing, LP, for the reconstruction of an office building located at 4600 Main Street across from the light rail line.

Rice should do some kind of parking sharing arrangement with the church so its giant parking lots can be redeveloped.

That would be nice, but does South Main Baptist Church have any incentive to do so? I assume there's no property taxes at this time - would that change if they're making money from the property?
As things stand they can hold onto this land till Doomsday (or until land prices are astronomical) at virtually no cost.

I was trying to say at the last Ion meeting . . . since this is going to be at the hub of two of the busiest and most connected transit lines, this is going to be one of the least necessary places in Houston for parking. They should really be trying to minimize the overall footprint of land there for parking lots/garages, including doing some kind of shared parking agreements.

They could make a deal where Rice buys the property and, as part of redeveloping it, allows the church to use the parking garage. Gives the church a short term infusion of cash, which most churches need these days.

Exactly!   Similar to the arrangement between the Museum of Fine Arts and First Presbyterian Church.
