  • The artist rendering of the new FM 1960 and Kuykendahl intersection is stunning. Who knew what a few bushes on the medians could do?

  • @ MC: Assuming you’re not being sarcastic, it’s going to be difficult to make a big difference in that intersection without some more radical changes to both the gigantic public rights of way and the acres of asphalt and empty boxes in the private development around it. Not to mention that many of the more affluent residents of the area think that it’s become “unsafe” (that may be more perception than reality).

  • You know you’re a redneck, and probably a drunk one, when you’re running with the bulls in Baytown. But they’re cancelling due to 40 degree weather and fear the bulls will get hypothermia? The bulls in Montana are snickering…

  • Why does it take over a year and six figures to do a “study” to make a plan for some landscaping?

  • I’m really disappointed that the list of store opening announcements did not include Bork!

  • “Artist rendering?” That’s…a pretty fast and loose usage of that term.

  • Dana, you’re such a funny hipster! haha!

  • Still hate that Simon is ruining Phillip Johnson’s Marshall Field Wall–everything they do to the Galleria looks cheap

  • Look what happens when you have parking minimums and single-purpose big boxes… If developers actually built lovable building that people cared about, they could be converted for other uses. See (most) anything built before 1940.
