The pointy partially built retail shell spotted last August— empty, glassless, and seemingly left to fallow in the field at 4061 Spencer Hwy. — has since been covered over with the usual Krispy Kreme trappings, Lauren Meyers notes. Construction accessories were still parked on-site as recently as last week, and the grass growing freely beyond the Comerica Bank hedge was fully scraped away some time early this spring, presumably as part of the parking lot growth process. The site has yet to be added back to the company’s list of planned grand openings, however. And that other partially-baked location, just inside the South Loop west of Main St., was still wrapped in little more than its summer Tyvek as of Easter.

I can’t even remember the last time I saw a freshly painted building in Pasadena.
Pasadena is a gem of the GHA – Greater Houston Area (pronounced GA, the H is silent). Its gritty, its urban ( go to Spencer highway), its got actual sidewalks, its ethnic. Cashadena where the air is greener! Clear Lake makes it, Pasadena takes it! Chemical City has Philadelphia and new jersey type grit to it by 225. Pasadena also embraces boxing. A city that embraces boxing is known to be very gritty and urban, not lame an suburban. So Pasadena I salute you!
