All right, that's what I was hoping. But, from the early renderings and the description in the article, it looked like the sculpture garden was supposed to go all the way to the river. I guess it could do that right downstream of the new development, but it's not what I was envisioning. Hope it happens. It'd be a great addition to SAMA and the river.

New town home complex going up on N. St. Mary's between Grayson and Locust on the east side of the street. Built and marketed by David Weekley Homes and named "St. Mary's Place." Sprinkle and Co. is apparently the architect. Can't find out much more at the moment, although a sign with renderings is now up at the site. (I have a photo, but I couldn't find a place to upload it--sorry, newbie here.)

Awesome picture.

Btw, it's right across the street from the SOJO Crossing development.

I also know of Brackenridge Court. Another similar townhome development in the Lower Broadway area.

Looks like there are 3 projects planned by them in the central area. I look forward to getting more details!

Thanks for the photo. Yikes on the design. It reminds me of the miles of indiscriminately designed condolands in Houston.

I don't know if this would be an inappropriate place to ask but I'm an urban planning and regional development major up at a school in NYC but am from SA and come back for winter and summer breaks and am hoping to get an internship while back at home this summer. Any suggestions on who would be good people within the planning department that I could possibly intern for?

(sorry for this being unrelated to the urban development thread)

And the Alamo City Music Hall (previously Backstage Live) is supposed to be getting apartments on the same lot. Any info on those or when we'll get renderings/possible ground breaking date?
I second this, does anyone know if this is even a possibility? Because this could finally get the ball rolling for high-rise apartment buildings in downtown.

I agree on the design, although it's hard to tell too much from these drawings. So far, a lot in that area isn't nearly as interesting as I'd like it to be, with the possible exception of those uber-modern apartments (?) going up on Karnes between Josephine and Grayson, right north of the old Liberty Bar. So far, those look beautiful, although I have yet to see much information about them. Anyone know?

One of the main reasons Houston continues to be the most densely populated city in Texas despite its sprawl is thanks much in part to the 'condolands' or town homes as they are referred to here. Chicago by comparison also has alot of these type of buildings along with row homes which are very similar. If other cities in Texas want to get serious about density, they are going to have to get used to the idea of these much bemoaned style of homes as not every person desires to live stacked in a high rise.

Is there a particular planning field that you're interested in? Transportation, historic preservation, etc.? Feel free to send me a private message and I can give you a little more feedback.

This particular proposal, no.

H-E-B TO OPEN FIRST TWO STORY STORE IN TEXAS ON FRIDAY



Quote:
The new H-E-B store at 1601 Nogalitos St. will carry five times more craft beer than previously offered, 300 different wine labels, expanded produce and deli sections and a “travelator.”

As H-E-B’s first multilevel market in Texas, the Nogalitos store connects parking on the ground floor with shopping on the second via a slightly inclined escalator that uses a magnetic strip to lock specialized shopping carts in place. The locally based grocer tested the so-called travelators with a group of community residents Tuesday, in advance of the store’s grand re-opening Friday.

Quote:
The two-story market replaces H-E-B’s oldest operating store, which the locally based grocery chain closed and demolished last year. Construction crews retained part of the iconic facade and used it to surround a small courtyard in front of the new store.

H-E-B already operates several multilevel locations in northern Mexico and chose the format for the Nogalitos store because of the dense residential area surrounding it, said Unit Director Claudia Ornelas.

She oversaw the hiring of about 80 additional employees to staff the new store, which nearly tripled in size from its original footprint and now includes nearly three times the amount of grocery and general merchandise items, Ornelas said.

I heard somewhat recently that there was going to be some development called the "Central Baptist Church Development" in the King William/SouthTown area. I didn't hear much about it and was wondering if anyone knew more about that?

Central Baptist was an old church at 1226 S Presa (across from that park @ Florida St). It's been completely torn down. My guess is it's a new apartment building or townhomes?
