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.
