  1. Well they generally have people waiting out the door around lunch or dinner time. Pancake pantry is completely mediocre, but it's been a huge hit for years.
  2. Weather in Austin is more conducive to food truck parks. These are not expensive food options imo.
  3. Alamo draft house is far superior to carmike. It would be awesome if they were part of this development.
  4. Office space is quoted on an annual basis, not per month, so that 30-40 becomes 2.5-3.33 per sq per month.
  5. I am not saying the current Melrose is crappy. I am saying the this new Melrose seems to be using many of the same techniques that were used in a building like Pine Street Flats. Shallow excavation and precast concrete to speed up construction.
  6. The hopes for underground parking should be dashed imo. Look at the initial precast concrete being put up and it looks just like all the other crappy apartments around town.
  7. This was the thought during the last bubble. Bubbles are hard to predict and hindsight makes it super easy to spot them. There are lots of people making lots of money in this city, but some of the prices do seem a bit silly. And bubbles don't have to burst, prices could simply stagnate for 10-15 years.
  8. As was pointed out earlier, Metro and the government bid these jobs out. If you look at the engineering and constructions firms involved (Gresham Smith, Bell) in the Division St project it is the best of the best in town. These projects are complicated and have many moving parts, and when labor is tough to come by often times construction timelines become elongated. The project is on schedule by the way the latest I heard. PS: You brought me into this conversation, I had not posted until you brought my name up. Which is strange I think, but to each their own.
  9. FMJ, You brought up politics. We disagree on how things should be done. That's ok. These conversations make you angry and derail threads. You should drop it. Have a good day.
  10. PSC is not profitable. I said this last year and it is true again this year. They only lost 11 million dollars through 9/30/16 as compared to 27 million as of 9/30/15. This data will be updated soon for full year 2016 numbers.
  11. Flight to Montreal would be wonderful.
  12. Yes moving forward. ATT and Comcast are slowing them down but installation is still happening at apartment buildings.
  13. The real question is why? Why spend upwards of $500 million for a game or maybe a few sec championships? This would be a colossal waste of money
  14. I'm not being passive aggressive. Sorry you take it that way. I'm being very upfront about the needs to make Autonomous driving feasible. Even basic reading on the subject shows that not only does technology need to be better but so do our roads. This requires money and investment, something our republican governor is proposing currently and that I support.
  15. It amazes me that people believe automated cars for the masses are coming next year. There have to be MASSIVE investments in infrastructure before AV will be safe. Not to mention advancements in the current technology. This is still 10-20 years away. Not to mention we have a segment of our society that doesn't believe in investing in infrastructure.
