  1. Past hour
  2. So they'll be adjacent to the JC Penney. There was some truth to the rumor on Next Door last year. A poster on ND who claimed to have talked to the property manager of the strip on S. Braeswood said HEB had less than 24 months on their lease and it was cheaper to pay it off than fix the store. Since they didn't own the property they couldn't make the improvements they wanted to 'guarantee' the store wouldn't flood again. So apparently they'd already been scouting sites well before Harvey. FWIW, another poster said there were already plans for another HEB 'superstore' on the SW side not near Meyerland, too.

  12. Amazon HQ2

    I don't think Generation Park is even in the City of Houston.
  13. KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    Probably just my preference but I think they have an opportunity to get rid of the classic grocery store with the 500 parking spaces on this site. They should have made it more central to the site to allow better walkability. Also do something like Phoenician and mix in a Wine bar on top with a great downtown view. I think they will have trouble filling the NE corner though. You are probably right about the townhomes too. Which would mean there would be a lot!

    A big difference of course being that Regent Square is still separated from Buffalo Bayou Park by Allen Parkway. East River touches the (future) park directly.

    *what Regent Square will be in fifty-five years

    A few thoughts. 1. As Ellen said, the street grid is a good sign, especially as it links with the existing street grid outside the site. 2. Development looks dense, which is good news but will take awhile if it's really built out like this (big if). There are probably as many multi-family units in here as there are in all of Midtown currently. 3. Looks like we might get a good walkable retail street with an urban village atmosphere. The natural candidate for this would be Clinton Drive, but since there is no zoning, you have no idea what will happen across the street. Development must turn inward. 4. This could be what Regent Square should have been, only with less of a high street fashion orientation. 5. Success will be driven by Buffalo Bayou improvements and townhome developments outside the site to help establish the neighborhood and support retail. 6. Looks like they are probably hoping for a corporate campus or perhaps an education/research campus as the anchor on the eastern end. Of course any educational campus would be limited to UH, since the local political wolves will chase off any of the big $ state universities.

    Hey Mr Clean. I think that you at correct about the "Squares with open spaces" being apartment buildings. The large Standard sized blocks in each one of these square seem to have shadows, so I bet that that would indicate mid-rise with parking beneath. Or . The small plots along Clinton look to me like, townhomes/single family. Without any parking in their vicinity, I doubt that they would be retail fronts. The western edge looks like small retail, where the NE corner appears to be Grocery store and other retail pads.

    That of course would require the construction of a bridge over Buffalo Bayou. The Hirsch and Jensen Street bridges at the east and west ends provide through streets to the east end. There also appear to be perhaps 4 pedestrian bridges.
  19. McDonalds House Addition

    This is the Ronald McDonald House at 1907 Holcombe. Here's a story on the phased renovation and expansion of the facility:

    It seems like a street grid. That's good.
  21. Crossroads at Cavalcade

    On another note, New Quest seems to have picked up the property behind this as well....they are now working on Five Points AND Five Points East.
  22. Crossroads at Cavalcade

    New development at "Five Corners". Across the street from Five Points being marketed by New Quest.
  23. KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    I saw this too. A couple of takeaways.... There is no through street to the east end. I thought that Gregg Street would connect to Middle Street. Also I may be reading too much into this but I think you can see from the Squares with Open Spaces in the middle, where they plan on having Apartments. The multi-building plots along Clinton must be retail/commercial. Most office buildings looks to be located closer to the bayou or to the east.
  24. Please tell me this is the other side of that original rendering...
  25. KBR Site Puchased by Midway

    these guys are doing an awesome job marketing this site. kudos to them.
  26. Capitol Tower by Skanska, formerly Houston Club Building

    WOW, bringing back the reflective glass! I wonder how stark the transition will be from garage to office floors. Good thing about this is that you definitely won't see any cars.....
