  1. Their website indicates a Winter 2022 opening
  2. For anyone interested I was told that this property was bought for redevelopment, however, it's new use is yet to be determined. For the next 12-18 months it will be used as a warehouse.
  3. Seems like it is sold? A lot of new activity there over the last week. Anyone know who purchased it and if there are any plans/renderings of the proposed use?
  4. https://www.click2houston.com/traffic/2021/10/27/here-is-an-update-on-the-progress-of-the-shepherddurham-project/ Shepherd / Durham project The entire project is called the Shepherd/Durham project, which is a major investment project. Work kicked off earlier this summer. When all the work is done, folks will see improvements stretching, all the way north of I-10 into the Heights. Project one: work on Shepherd and Durham, south of I-10, from Dickson to Washington. This work will be completed at different points in time, with the goal of having Shepherd done first then Durham by fall of 2022. Project two: Shepherd/Durham from 610 to I-10 (crews have not broken ground on this section just yet) Done in two phases: Phase one: 610 to 15th street (crews are ready to break ground on the first phase of project two by the end of 2021.) Phase two: 15th to I-10. Improvements Work on Shepherd and Durham will include reducing lanes from four to three to make way for: Better bike lanes--with added buffer zone to protect cyclists from car traffic. Wider sidewalks Better drainage Drivers can expect better timing for traffic signals too.
  5. I'm not a government contractor or a city planner, however I have been privy to the cost estimate for a brand new 4 way traffic signal install without crosswalk signals and that was about $250k. I have no perspective on crosswalk signal costs for municipalities, but when we looked into them for a private neighborhood, they were available for <$10k each (push button with lighted signal, not the countdown type you commonly see on city streets). So from my perspective, $1M seems excessive for what they have outlined.
  6. Close to a million dollars for a new traffic light posts/arms, paint on the ground, and walk signals? Government bloat at it's best.
  7. I love the fact they are thinking about walkability, but this only applies to Shepherd/Durham from 10-610 in the heights. I can't seem to find anything with any plans for 10-Memorial Dr
  8. Seems like this link isn't related to this portion of Shepherd Dr, but the other link addresses the area in question. I haven't been down this portion of Shepherd/Durham in 3 months, but construction definitely didn't start last spring...
  9. I don't want to think about how a Chick-fil-A and the lines they create would work there. That restaurant across the street already backs up Shepherd some nights.
  10. Which construction are you referring to here? Shepherd Dr reconstruction? Will this corner be modified in a way that necessitated the demo? Btw I'm happy to see it go, just more curious on how exactly it's related to Shepherd Dr construction.
  11. Good to know, round 3 of anticipation for the new owners plans...
  12. It has been on the market for almost a year now. No price listed last I looked.
  13. You know, I didnt zoom in enough to see the detail of all the spaces. I did see Salon Lofts, however I assumed that was a description vs an actual tenant. Sorry @ahkelly
