Looking to the future, I think mass transit will thrive in a world where humans don't operate the vehicles. I'm talking all the vehicles, including the mass transit vehicles, buses and trains.

 

they would all talk together to give appropriate priority, left and right turn lanes could easily be re-introduced onto the rail lines where they were removed.

 

 

I agree, but maybe for a different reason. The biggest impediment to workable transit is a lack of density. And the biggest impediment to achieving sufficient density is the requirement that every development provide parking. (There are others, but this is the biggest.) 

 

Once cars can drive themselves, you can de-couple parking from the destination. Even if the dominant model remains everyone having their own personal vehicle, if the cars "valet park" themselves, then you can eliminate the rule that off-site parking can only be a short distance away. That opens up a ton of land area for additional commercial and residential development, which could result in corridors with enough density to make transit work.

I agree and hope completely that self driving cars probably leads to an increase in urban density due to scrapping the on-site parking.  However, I still don't think it plays well with Houston style light rail.  I think self driving taxis will be infinitely more popular and desirable than the type of local service light rail we have now.  I am bullish on more rapid long distance transit like commuter rail, which I previously didn't think would really work until an inner city transit network was built out.

With so many destinations from the burbs how can commuter trains get everyone where they need to go without either viable bus and rail transfers. You have people working in the galleria, med center, energy corridor, greenway Plaza, greens point,  downtown and a million points in between.

Assuming inexpensive cabs as the last mile, you can have far less stations - you can have nodes at places like the Galleria, downtown, med center, etc, and then autonomous cars or shuttles can take people to the door of their final destination

This is why fixed guideway transit is economically challenged. We're better off just building much denser neighborhoods and let transit patterns grow up around them.

The advantage is if it's faster than on street transportation.

I'm not looking to get everyone to take mass transit. I just think that its a great alternative to getting more cars off the road and if that helps the people who don't or can't

take mass transit then hopefully it will help them navigate the streets much easier. It also cuts down on emissions.

I have. And  In a number  of cities worldwide.  And, despite being crowded at times, I prefer them over driving a car stuck in rush hour.  Standing is also healthier than sitting.  Generally, even when the train is empty, i will stand.  If I do sit, I will certainly give up my seat for an elderly person or a person with infants, etc.

Trucks delivering things that usually sit in traffic wasting gas, they could get to their destinations more efficiently, translating into cheaper goods for everyone.

 

Mass transit makes sense, too bad marketing departments for automobile manufacturers did such a good job at fooling everyone.

You actually surprised me. Usually you're the one that posts the facts or at least reasonable statements here on this forum. It has to be fair that mass transit has at least helped alleviate congestion by reducing the amount of extra cars being on the highways, right? Travelling around the country and taking mass transit where I go, I just can't imagine how much more hectic the Bay Area would be without their subway system, the DC metro without MetroRail or even the extra taxis there would be going from Denver International to downtown Denver. In each case when we are going to each respective city during the morning commute, I've seen hundreds of workers hoping aboard to go to work downtown. I mean, say the year is 2050... is the alternative to have 30 lane highways inside of 610 that carry people, out to say the next Katyville... somewhere out in Columbus, Texas? Seriously, who knows how sprawling the city will be in 2050... can mass transit seriously not be a factor in this city when we see how to actually execute it well in so many different cities just within our own nation?

I don't necessarily think that's true. I think there's a maximum level of traffic and commute time that the average commuter is willing to tolerate. The congestion will generally reach that point, and there will be a break-even point where any inflows of traffic would be balanced by diminutions due to avoidance of the congestion. I think that, once roadways reach capacity, the inbound destinations would have lessened growth without added capacity, with outlying areas tending to take that growth. Mass transit just allows for added capacity to move people into the central destination. As opposed to, let's say 700,000 people going into Manhattan on a given work day with only the option of automobiles, we get 1.5 million (just making up numbers here merely for illustrative purposes) people going into Manhattan. The average commute gets to that upper bound and then the inbound commuting population levels off. The commute time issue applies to mass transit as well. The average person isn't going to wait for an hour in line to get onto overcrowded trains. They'll just find something closer to where they live or relocate to somewhere where their desired commute can be achieved. If you don't provide the additional options for inbound commuting, suburban job growth will occur to respond to the demand for lower commute times. 

 

Shortened version: I think the line that mass transit alleviates congestion isn't actually true. Mass transit just allows for added capacity to permit additional growth of certain areas.

Exactly right.  And I doubt you'll find many studies even claiming that mass transit will significantly reduce congestion. I support mass transit, but we should not promote it on the basis that it will reduce congestion, because it will not.

Denver?  Seriously? I've made the drive to the Denver Airport many times both before and after they had rail service.  Trust me. There is zero discernible difference in the traffic.

 

I am being completely factual, as usual.  And you are arguing against straw men.  Yes, mass transit can be and should be a factor in our city (and is a factor in our city, but I agree it should be a larger factor.  To say that there are no examples of cities where mass transit has eliminated or significantly reduced congestion is not to say that mass transit has no role.

The funny thing is not long ago Houston was considered a city that got rid of terrible traffic by building more and better freeways including a shout out by former Texan, Brian Wilson, on his WMAL Radio program one morning when the topic of DC traffic came up.

If everyone in Manhattan drove themselves to work, Manhattan would look a lot like downtown Houston: a lot lower activity density, a lot more parking.

 

Transit is kind of a chicken-and-egg problem. You can't get transit to be even close to cost-efficient without much higher density than pretty much every part of pretty much every US city has. And it's politically very difficult to achieve that kind of density without a workable transit system, because neighborhoods object to new development by citing increased traffic and parking concerns.

 

Houston has some advantages in this area, since developers can add density by right, so there's no need to up-zone in order to increase density. But at the same time, our setback requirements and parking minimums tend to make fine-grained walkable development all but impossible, and result in very low activity density, even in central neighborhoods.

 

And we dedicate a very high proportion of land-area to non-productive uses. For example, EaDo is a rapidly densifying urban neighborhood, with a mix of multi-family residential, high-density single-family residential, and commercial development. But the area is platted with 280-ft blocks with 80-ft rights of way, which means that almost 40% of land area is RoW. That's before you add in parking minimums and setbacks. Very hard to get to a critical mass of activity density when half your land area is empty.

I mean, that's sort of what they've been doing, though I don't think anything's been demoed. It's such a huge site, they wouldn't need to tear down any of the buildings; just break up the concrete parking lots and throw down some sod.

No way!  The beauty of that site is all of that indoor space just waiting to be built out.  With the realities of Houston weather, having indoor recreational space would be a great compliment to the adjacent outdoor space along the bayou.  My wife and I were at D4N and during one of the breaks we started listing some of the possibilities: indoor electric go-kart track, bowling alley, shooting range, miniature golf, pool hall, arcade, skating/hockey rinks, lawn bowling, cornhole, RC car track.  I'm sure that there are more.  Maybe carnival rides for kids that can work within the existing ceiling heights?

 

All of those other things you mention are great, but can't we do those at Eleanor Tinsley park?

I think this will be more of a playground for adults than a playground for kids. You basically described the old Fame City. Which is all well and good, but people looking for that usually care a lot about parking and easy access and very little about downtown location.

If you go back and read some of the more recent articles and minutes from the Downtown Houston meeting, renovations began this year. They're working on the building while leasing it and their other properties out for events.

But according to their marketing materials and plans the developers have vaguely said are in place, there won't be any indoor recreational facilities. The inside will include a food hall, market, retail shopping, offices, and eventually a hotel.

Good news, bad news about updates on Post HTX (Post Houston), the former Barbara Jordan Post Office at 411 Franklin.

First the good:

Lovett Commercial added a leasing page for the 401 Franklin site after promoting it on their landing page for two years.

Here are some details from the listing:

 

  • 500,000 square feet of space on 16 acres of land
  • Located at the front door of downtown and the intersection of I-10 & I-45
  • Mixed use redevelopment of former United States Post Office
  • Panoramic skyline views
  • Anchored within the Theatre District and directly along Buffalo Bayou Park
  • Walking distance to light rail and bus stations
  • Retail, restaurant, and office leasing opportunities available

http://www.lovettcommercial.com/properties/houston/401-franklin-st-

 

 

The bad news:

No leasing brochure or updated renderings

Thanks for posting the older ones. They were no longer in the thread (if they ever were). It's rad to see the changes made to this project in the design phases to compare and contrast to the newer ones (and older ones).

Lovett Commercial announced details are coming soon for Post HTX, the old Barbara Jordan post office in downtown Houston at 401 Franklin.

 

Here's the Facebook link:

I think an announcement is coming at the end of this month or next month. The signs: a listing page for the mixed use on their website and the announcement made on Facebook.

 

I think we know already what their updated plans are and the renderings based off of the brochure that was online before Lovett pulled it. Why else would Lovett go to such lengths to force Swamplot and HAIF to remove information and renderings pulled from the brochure?

Those renderings and text from the brochure are still available here, here, here, and here.  Older renderings of Post HTX are above here, and look similar to the newer ones.

The Post HTX video on Vimeo is no longer private (Lovett Commerical marked it private after Swamplot's report on the mixed use details with renderings)

The video is outdated and doesn't show the newer renderings from the brochure that was online last year. Outdated as it may be (I think it was from late 2016), it's similar to the newer renderings and depictions from Post HTX's leasing brochure and website design plans that hasn't been updated to show the renderings.
