HOUSTON'S METRONATIONAL, the privately held real estate investment, development and management company that owns and manages the sprawling city-within-a-city that is Memorial City, just became the first company in Texas to achieve the coveted, Lady Gaga-partnered WELL Health-Safety Rating for all of the office buildings in its robust portfolio, which includes 3.8 million square feet of office space divided between 11 buildings in Memorial City.
GOV. GREG ABBOTT has announced that all Texas businesses will be able to open 100 percent beginning March 10, adding that mask mandates will be lifted, according to multiple press reports. As a preemptive rebuttal to those concerned his actions are premature and could lead to a new wave of Covid cases, he set a new rule that allows county judges to override his policies if Covid hospitalizations rise above 15 percent capacity.
Houstonians woke up to a unique site — a white sprinkling of snow and sleet, coating familiar landscapes in a snowy light rarely seen in these parts. And they're taking photos! CityBook is collecting some of the cutest and most striking images, of which there are, ahem, a flurry on social media.
