  1. I will never understand this project for what they spent fighting lawsuits they could have built this years ago... anywhere else in Houston... I can name off half a dozen places near the area , just off the top of my head
  2. For decades this area has been the unofficial main corridor to montrose .. the entrance if you will... it where back in the day the parade and block parties congregated... now I feel like it will finally reflect that in appearance
  3. Let's be honest... it will be many 6 months before Marriott buys
  4. Im.not getting my hopes up ..with this city obsession with value engineering
  5. Opportunity to create a new iconic tower ..gone by the wayside..smh
  6. Exactly plus these kind of projects spur other projects and businesses. If done right i really dont see how this can't become a major space complex.. Who knows in 40 years Ellington could be to Houston space industry what TMC is to our medical.
  7. Well it appears the Spaceport is chugging along Estimate say could create up to 1000 jobs there
  8. Here hoping how well this place is filling up encourage them to immediately move to the next phase. . In 5 years that entire area going to look completely different.. where there is business ,services follow , were there services , residential follows( even more so ). Given we know that the areas around it are already marked for development.. the only logical course is to continue development along main pass the bridge. Was driving past that old wendys yesterday and thought " just buy out that shop next to it and you have enough sq for mid size highrise... access to the highway, access to the rail line.
  9. Omg ...quite nitpicking every damn thing... The point was for a long time alot of business were fine just setting up shop in Houston and didn't feel a need to engage the community.... All of that and you locked in on a off hand comment about " middle of nowhere " sheesh
  10. Where I kind of have to push back...I don't ever think it was a local thing... I always felt it was those not from Houston that feed alot of the problems.. For the longest time alot of business treated Houston as just a place to make money. There was no real desire to invest in the city.. outside of massive bland Corp campuses in the middle of nowhere.. it feels like only around early 2000 did they start to think about creating places to live and work. And therefore put thought into how can we build something that meets are needs but is also pleasing to the eye.
  11. Exactly!! It has it spots , but so many poor development decisions in the past damaged it .... Now we are working backwards to reverse the damages.
  12. Suck it Dallas Trinity River ...which ended up just being a bridge over a ditch!! Just kidding
  13. Let's be Honest , Houston not a looker...it doesn't have alot of natural beauty...so we have to focus on enhancing and protecting the little it does.
  14. I think about this project and what happenings on the other end of the bayou. I think about how more and more midrises are appearing in midtown. About the absurd pace at which the medical center is expanding. Then you drive around the core of Houston and realize that still huge swashes of land undeveloped. Even in the areas I mentioned...
  15. I'm hoping it something that fits the area I feel like that area has not even begun to tap it potential
  16. That fine one of the biggest knocks on here is always about how short sighted Houston is and never plans long term... good to see it thinking 20, 30 , 50 years down...even of we don't benefit in our life time.
  17. Literally have not meet anyone complaining about the name change.
  18. if this is the park I'm thinking of im for it place is currently just a homeless camp.
  19. Think of the homeless problems as a three fold . You have your homeless who genuinely are just down on luck. These are the ones that accept housing and lodging. . You have your mentality ill or those who have social problems. They are often chronic homeless. They will get back on their feet for awhile but fall back off.. sadly they will bounce between the two for most of their life. .Then you have the criminal elements, these are people who can't get housing outside of half ways housing because of violent backgrounds.. Your sex offenders, and other violent crimes that get flagged in background checks . The majority of people around the greyhound station are not really homeless, they are drug dealers who use the homeless to hide in plain sight.( these can be dealt with by simply cracking down on them) The city does this all the time when there a big event in town.
  20. Exactly recognize you have a opportunity to do something that could define Montrose for the next 50 years . The goal should be something bold that stands out.
