Ashby not hurting home values; better rankings for Houston, UH, and Rice; support the Astrodome

Just a handful of smaller items this week:
If you'd like to support the Astrodome redevelopment (and you definitely should -  it's only +$8/year on your taxes), the campaign kickoff is this Tuesday at the Hyatt downtown.  Also check out the slick commercial they've made.

Ashby is likely having no effect on this neighborhood so far. Or maybe a slight positive as Maryland Manor was nothing to look at either. But wait until the 20 story building is completed before we see what effect it has on neighboring homes.

Right now not seeing the point of turning the 'Dome into a convention center with so much momentum going towards downtown. There's plenty of surface parking to convert into more convention space or parking garages across the Reliant complex. Why not keep the skeleton of the Dome and use it as fairgrounds/tailgating for Texans/Rodeo. Seems a lot cheaper and not cannibalizing convention movements elsewhere.

It won't be cannibalizing downtown. It will help us keep the OTC (they are out of space and Brazil is trying to steal it) and attract new events that would not otherwise come to Houston or could not be hosted at GRB.

But why the Dome and not a nearby surface lot?
