/ Astrodome to be turned into a movie studio \

This is a concept that is getting closer to be becoming a realility.

It will be called the "Astrodome studios".

From Swamplot


Quote:
Still waiting in the wings, the long-promoted but as-yet-unmade proposal to turn the long-vacant Astrodome into a giant indoor movie lot is almost ready for its closeup, says Christine Hall in the Houston Business Journal. Astrodome Studios co-executive directors Elise Hendrix and Cynthia Neely

along with a laundry list of supporters, including “Dazed and Confused” director/writer Richard Linklater, are one month away from presenting a proposal to Harris County that would put a major soundstage and movie production studio into the proclaimed “Eighth Wonder of the World.”

“We would have absolutely everything a creative agency would need to film a movie,” Hendrix says. “With 140,000 square feet, you wouldn’t have any problem building a city in there if you needed to.”

But what would an Astrodome movie studio look like, really? To help unimaginative county officials picture the transformation, Astrodome Studios has prepared the dramatic photo-illustration above, along with a series of similarly rich diagrams:















This development has a website and a myspace lol.

Here are some construction pics from last month that I forgot to throw in.

Pictures from The Woodlands, which to anyone who does'nt know is located about 25 miles north of downtown Houston. The area is booming and its where The Woodlands Mall and Waterway is located.

Just a few years ago there was nothing but urban sprawl BS out in this area but now it starting to look like an actual city!

This is the new developement for the Woodlands. The tallest tower (20 stories) is already u/c and the others are already built or in the process of being built.

A low rise under construction named 'Avia' in The Woodlands Market Square. (Can you see the rendering?)

Some more development along the waterway. The white building on the left is the new Marriott Hotel.

That's because this one is all the way out there but still in the city limits. If Houston was the size of the Midwestern and Northeastern cities, the area that this is built in would be the suburbs. But because Texas cities are so massively big, this is in the city limits.

Some good news,

From Swamplot...

Quote:
Here’s a surprise: a construction permit for a new 23-story Chinatown Asiatown condominium tower was issued yesterday for Park 8 Place. Remember Park8? That’s the freeway feeder megastrip project planned for just across Brays Bayou from Arthur Storey Park, along Beltway 8 south of Bellaire Blvd. The one that called itself “The Land of Oz.”

The entire development was supposed to include three 20-something-story residential towers, a hospital, two 2-story retail-and-office strips, and a couple of parking garages — all in a quaint freeway-and-park-side setting. A foundation was poured for the first condo building last year, but Park 8 CEO David Wu put the project on hold after he was unable to secure financing. So the construction crane came down.

If a single condo tower is the only piece of the project that’s now been funded, the result might be a little less overwhelming than the complex portrayed in this old Park 8 promotional video:




According to the city report, yesterday’s permit cost Lyda Swinerton Builders more than $46K. The official address for the project is 8018 W. Sam Houston Pkwy. South.

Its funny, because its actually the same - the way the US pledges not to use violence against other nations... but then we have Vietnam, Cuba, Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan, and many others... but people don't see those. Stop throwing rocks at your neighbor's roof when yours is made of glass. And stop the politics from getting inside this thread.

Nexeo Solutions moves to Woodlands, prompts office construction



Quote:
Houston Business Journal by Jennifer Dawson, Reporter
Date: Wednesday, October 26, 2011, 9:50am CDT

Nexeo Solutions LLC is moving an unknown number of employees to The Woodlands from the Midwest, creating its first presence in the Houston area.

Nexeo leased 64,000 square feet on the top three floors of a new 192,000-square-foot office building that soon will be under construction in The Woodlands.

Nexeo is a chemicals, plastics, composites and environmental services distribution company. The company was formed in April in Dublin, Ohio, following the sale of the global distribution business of Ashland Inc. .. (NYSE: ASH) to affiliates of private investment firm, TPG Capital. At that time, it had approximately 2,000 employees in North America, Europe and Asia.

With tenant in hand, The Woodlands Development Co. .. will proceed with construction of the nine-story building called 3 Waterway Square Place. Located at the corner of Lake Robbins Dr. and Woodloch Forest Dr., the office structure will be finished in early 2013.
