Houston will never get an Olympics because Houston will never build a heavy rail transit system. 

As usual, any problems on that front come from leadership (usually regional and state-level, if not municipal).

I think our jungle -like heat and humidity during our summer may have more to do with no Olympics than a heavy rail system. Great for the vegetation though.

Although there are cases where the games have taken outside of meteorological summer (like 1968 in Mexico City).

Yep I was waiting for this to happen. I just saw a video on Youtube about how bad it is in NY right now. So I'm going to assume the development in Montrose is going to be on hold for a while. This sucks.

A guy associated with Skanska spoke at one of the Neartown Association meetings 3 or 4 months ago and I specifically asked him if the Montrose project would have an office component and he said no. It will be strictly mixed use, residential and possibly a hotel. He said they would start planning the specifics when 1550 On The Green was finished and a possible start date in '25.

Whew! My heart sank for a minute. Good news!

I just walked past, and the retail space to the left of the main entrance is being kitted out for something called OTG Coffee.

Always happy to have another coffee option.  Hopefully it notices that there are lots of potential customers in the park at night, and stays open.

Even the Starbucks in the Hilton sees that, and serves booze after office hours like the one I used to frequent in Seattle.

One of the restaurants coming to Downtown Houston's 1550 on the Green is Madre Perla. I'm unsure of the restaurant's concept. However, it appears the eatery is tied to Tracy Vaught of H-Town Hospitality Group (Hugo's, Xochi, Caracol, and Urbe.)



The address for Madre Perla is 1550 Lamar St, Suite 101. This is the forthcoming restaurant coming to 1550 on the Green in downtown Houston.

According to a trademark application filed earlier this year, the restaurant is from Sin Fronteras Hospitality, LLC. It's connected to Tracy Vaught of H-Town Hospitality Group. This may be another Hugo Ortega restaurant, but I don't know for sure.

I'm assuming Madre Perla will be a Mexican restaurant. As for the concept, I don't know.

Boston Consulting Group will lease 53K SF in 1550 on the Green, Skanska’s new office tower in Downtown Houston. The lease brings the 375K SF building at 1550 Lamar St. to 48% leased.

The article makes it sound like there's a coffee shop there. There isn't. I just walked by, and the unit is still papered over, with the same paper sign that was there the months ago. No sign of change.
