  • Re: Innovation Hub In Former Sears Is Houston’s Answer To Amazon’s Snub

    YES! Exactly as I had predicted here on Swamplot, and thank goodness. Now all we need to do is entrench the US-59/I-69 elevated and relocate the multitude of homeless in the area to a permanent camp and we will have an area wide redevelopment spree

  • Well, Theodore Levitt said that “Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things.” While Houston may have whiffed on creative-class levels of creativity it has a decent chance at this innovation thing. The only pitfall I see here is that the idea of an “innovation district” itself has changed a lot lately, and I’m personally intrigued to see to what extent this new development represents that ground truth.

  • I wonder if we will hear stories about the Robinhood condo people throwing ice at the elderly people in the new high rise next door.
