In the eyes of the City, where the form-based codes have been established, the answer is no.  The boundaries of the form-based code area are approximately the FWWR railroad on the west (this eliminates Mistletoe Heights and Midtown), the Union Pacific Railroad on the north, the BNSF Railway on the east, and a variable boundary on the south that goes along Allen Ave., Travis Ave., the southern property line of all of Magnolia, Hurley Ave. and the alley between Hurley & 8th, then down to W. Arlington, then 1/2 block west to the railroad.  Cook Children's Hospital properties are a donut in this area and the zoning jumps across the BNSF tracks to include the area around I-35W.

 

I think the Near Southside's business development boundaries extend a little further out than the form-based code areas.

The to-go/street parking spots in front of Maggie's is now filled in with a new curb. The photo was about a week ago. As of this weekend, it is all bricks. I'm assuming Maggie's will use this for additional (permanent) outdoor seating, similar to the wine bar across the street & Nonna / Lazy Moose. 

 

Personal Opinion: I'd like to see more of this, plus filling in some of the medians along Magnolia to be pedestrian-crossing friendly, then finally some bike protection. Somedays it seems stroad-like when the road-markings fade.

V3kmh27.jpgAnyone know if the former 7 11 and that smoke shop stay?  I thought this project took the full block.

The 7-11 closed a while ago and they dug the tanks out of the ground.  From what I heard, the plan is for the Magnolia Skate Shop to move in to the 7-11 building.

 

Note they are building a new 7-11 on the corner of Hemphill and Berry.

never was too excited about this design of this building but at least it is covering up a vacant lot and will add more commercial space to the area.

905 W Cannon progress. The Cannon side has brick work mostly done. This was taken mid-September.

Pulled these conceptual renderings of T&P and Mistletoe Station from the Near Southside Inc presentation yesterday. Sounded like there is a Trinity Metro RFP put out for 200 Vickery.

 

Couldn't find individual posts for each site, feel free to move or take these to the right one.

I thought of a few of yours posts when this came up

There's also a tiny inset rendering that makes me wondering how far along this proposal is. It looks nice! You can also make out the developer Seco Verntures out of Austin.

I'm just wondering why the scrapped the hotel in favor of an office. 

Also, the more I think about it, the more I wonder why the buses don't run directly underneath 30 and have stops that are closer to where the train platform entrance is. There is room to carve out a bus lane and stops.

It would be nice if they could underground / relocate / delete the electrical utility on the corner, to make room to stretch this development all the way east to main street:

That looks to be a strategic utility yard where the high voltage lines step down and then go underground.

Looks like the applicant is a local musician who’s been around a minute. Will be a great addition.

Next door, Brix BBQ has their signage up and look to be getting closer to opening.

Hope they give the exterior a spruce up, at the least.

The Near Southside TIF has been extended for 10 years.  Below is a link to the City's website on this action:

Is there value in replicating old shotgun structures on the Near Southside, for example?  They seem like simple structures that could serve various uses.  I saw someone posted they historically are 12 ft W max, I assume the ratios matter (H to W & roof slopes) - so maybe 15' W could work? If so could fit on a 25' lot (dividing a 50' lot in half)... right?

Good question. To answer it, it'd help to know what density is achievable with new-build shotgun structures, and whether their dimensions would accommodate modern usage patterns / floor plans.

Appears to be some movement on a smaller multifamily or townhome project at 400 block of W. Cleveland.  One streetviews, a house has a big sign on it saying "For Sale 6 Lots .65 Acres" and the UDC filing indicates potentially 20 units to be built with Studio 97W listed as the architect which is promising, considering they have done decent design work on these type of projects.  There was an older NEZ application for some apartments here dated 2018 but good through early 2023.
