  1. TXDot has provided additions to the HGAC 2045 document. Some of them are quite significant. Its worth looking at the full list, some of these are projected prior to 2030, though they run the entire range out to 2045. The full list can be found HERE. Note, I believe that they are missing a 3rd page from the summary (ie, the first two pages should have a third one). However, the county-level list looks complete. A few of the notable changes: Replace 610 bridge over the ship channel Replace I-10 bridge over San Jo Add 2 I-10 managed lanes 610W to San Jo bridge Elevated lanes through Uptown on 610 (missing from the summary, but included in the Harris County list) Something on Hempstead (I can't unpack what they are really proposing for that corridor) Lengthening the proposed highway 35 corridor out to/past beltway 8 Expand highway 99 from I-10(west) to Kuykendahl New divided highway corridor west of highway 99 from 290 south past 59
  2. It has not begun. This is all still related to the Post Oak widening.
  3. My office overlooks the site. All four quadrants are being used (extensively) as a holding area for the Post Oak work. PO @ Richmond is supposed to re-open in May, but I can't imagine they will be able to move all the stuff out of there until the full Blvd is a bit further along.
  4. Let's not hit the Cosmo too hard. The base is bad, but don't forget it used to be worse (#NeverForgetUrinals)! Also, for the area, and the unit size, some of the condos are pretty price-efficient now. If you want to own a place with floor to ceiling windows in Uptown, and don't want to drop $1M for a 2/2 at the Arabella, this is your baby. All-in with condo fees it's comparable with the new 2/2 apartments nearby. There's a bunch of them on the back side (away from the construction) on higher floors for $600k. LINK
  5. The amenity thing is a relatively new addition to Houston. Some of the newer apartments / the ones with really nice pools & cabanas charge them. My wife and I (which live/ have lived in Houston high rises with and without the fees) call it the "cabana charge". If you see cabanas... there's probably an amenity fee.
  6. Neighborhood meeting earlier this week. Believe it was 12 floors... "may look something like Elan Heights". Premium price point to the Elan across the street.
  7. HBJ said 600,000 sq ft... 14 floors.... 42,000 sqft/floor.... 300ft x 140ft. Using googlemeasure (high tech stuff), that's ~ 1/3 the site if you assume the garage goes through to the back. #ChecksOut
  8. Thread for 610/59 here. https://www.houstonarchitecture.com/haif/topic/26657-59-610-interchange-partial-rebuild/?page=3
  9. The sheer number of people working on this every day is amazing right now. There are teams on both sides and the middle down the entire 3 mile stretch.
  10. The bus lanes fly over the freeway and dive "into" the freeway... ultimately coming out in (like literally inside) the underpass where 610 intersects Post Oak. FYI, 610 SB is completely closed all weekend around Woodway. All 610 SB traffic (all 8 lanes) is being pushed to the one-lane Woodway exit and along the 610 frontage. It's 10pm and it's backed up for a mile and a half. Avoid.
  11. Also... is there a way to move this out of the Trains section and into the general Transportation section? The Boulevard Project has nothing to do with trains.
