Galveston Is on the Rise. Until It Sinks.

This week’s Hair Balls column features a chart about the explosion of growth in condos and other developments in Galveston. It’s like an invasion of classiness, if you define classiness as cookie-cutter beachside projects.

Linking in hard copy rarely works, but we wanted to draw your attention to this page out there on the Web. It’s a thread on a message board that deals with development issues; it’s also a nice little photo album of ongoing projects and artist’s renderings of proposed future projects.

We can’t say how comprehensive or definitive it is, and it is some months out of date, but if you haven’t been down to Galveston in a while it’s a bit of an eye-opener. – Richard Connelly
