Haven't seen it in a while... is it in bad shape?

 

Not really, I use that garage once a week-ish, and to me its just antiquated in design. Getting in and out sucks. It also doesn't make sense for its location, you get some foot traffic walking to the park over there. 

 

When are the repairs supposed to be done? I know they are kind of zooming, but I feel like this has been going on a while, and the lobby in the houston center is a little...rough with all of the construction stuff.

Oh wow, so they really are going to alter that street. I thought that was just a projection into the future of what they wanted to see, but nope they are doing it right now. A reduced McKinney St in this area will go a long way to making this feel like a place.

This part of McKinney is being reduced from 3 lanes and 1 parking lane to 2 lanes and 1 parking lane. The parking lane will also be structured, so not one continuous road. They will probably be busting up the sidewalks at some point in order to match the streetscape they will be doing as well.

Located away from the curb so as not to splash people waiting for the bus
