From a webcam on 811 Main, there's already heavy equipment on site that has pulled up some of the asphalt.

They waited until late on a Thursday night to unveil this one. Another Stream project:

The latest labor market numbers from the Texas Labor Market Indicator just got released. Depending on which data survey you use, Houston created either 121,000 or 132,000 jobs between last October and this October. Total number of jobs is now 2,939,000. No wonder there are labor shortages in the construction industry (and the accounting industry and the oil and gas industry and...)

Texas Sets Annual Job Growth Record

And the unemployment rate's down to 4.7%.

There are numerous others that have not been announced yet. I know of 4. And they will affect O&G companies on the westside.

Development of the East End (or is it the Bayou District?) is ramping up:



BisNow shows this plan in the pipeline. Townhomes, mixed-use, multifamily...but few specifics other than the single-family residences.

I saw the cranes from I-69 on the way into town tonight. Even at night, the activity is impressive.
