  1. I think all we know at this point is that the secretive developer (same developer as Springwoods Village) has now acquired and cleared the parcels to replicate the footprint seen in the prior renderings. The renderings we originally saw were from HOK and part of a design competition several years ago... Some from Gensler have also floated around... From what I've read, they had to present development plans to get the fill & grade and water/waste water permits that have been issued over the past year or so. So something is in the works, but what exactly is anyone's guess. This is a huge plot of land along Main near TMC and near some big upcoming developments (TMC3, new A&M development, new Medistar tower, whatever is happening at 1500 OST, etc) so...yeah, it's potentially something pretty amazing . Hopefully the recent movement here means we hear something soon
  2. Sorry for the quick follow-up, but obviously tearing up N Braeswood would indicate they were granted the request for street abandonment from a couple of years ago. I checked the Harris County Clerk's website to see if it showed up and just found something else interesting... For some background, I've always noticed that the "Main Place at Greenbriar" plat (owned by 7200 Main Corporation) ended at a strange angle at Main and Pressler, as shown below. However, in all of the 7200 Main renderings we saw a few years ago, there were buildings and development along Pressler as well: For what it's worth, it appears that 7200 Main Corporation purchased ~0.8 ac from TMC out of the "Doctors Center" plat on 12/5/2019, and as best I can tell from the description this does appear to be additional land along Pressler: Maybe someone more savvy with coordinates can read the file and confirm, but either way it does appear that Coventry is finally moving on with development! It would seem getting the additional acreage along Pressler would be beneficial regardless of whether we are getting anything remotely close to these renderings, but obviously there is something very large in the works here...
  3. It was quiet for a few weeks but today I noticed they were in the process of tearing out that segment of N Braeswood Blvd... Also noticed some stakes so it appears things are still moving along
  4. Some news here... Heavy equipment is on site right now, clearing out the rest of the lot
  5. Can't wait to see this area in 5 years or so....this development, 7200 main, TMC3, new Medistar Tower...can't even imagine the added traffic but nice to see residential components in some of these. Anyway, I'm not sure if this is news or not, but apparently they are also selling the A&M Health Science Center at 2121 W. Holcombe.
  6. Easy enough to find on youtube, but here's the start of TMC3 discussion (only 22 views??):
  7. Glad I'm not the only one wondering...that wrecking ball seems ridiculously tiny. Maybe this is a needed step before imploding? I can't imagine them knocking down the entire thing this way...
  8. FWIW, that entire complex of townhomes is for sale... https://www.har.com/homedetail/1117-saint-agnes-st-a-houston-tx-77030/8668808
  9. Checking prior meeting agendas, this amount has increased throughout the year. $250 million in January, $325 million in April, etc... $625 million is such a significant amount, just seems weird there is nothing else out there about it
  10. Thanks, was having a hard time searching for some reason
  11. Not much to report, but a couple of permits have been issued: PROJECT_NO PERMIT_DESC OWNER_OCCUPANT Address PROJECT_DESC CURRENT_VALUATION PERMIT_TYPE 18098972 Plan Review Fee *KEITH SIMON, 7200 MAIN CORPORATION 7200 MAIN ST 77030 SITEWORK: FILL & GRADE, STORM DRAINAGE 2012 IBC 0 PX 19085302 WW Utility Admin *KEITH SIMON, 7200 MAIN CORPORATION 7200 MAIN ST 77030 WATER/WASTE WATER APPLICATION (00030610) REVIEW 0 WT The fill & grade permit was approved on 7/3/19, and the water/waste water application was submitted on 7/17/2019. Not thrilling but at least some activity... For such permits to be issued/approved, would they require an actual plan for development? I've wondered what impacts the post-Harvey flood regulations may have on this property, and noticed that the fill&grade permit was submitted just before they took effect. The thread on the Holcombe & Main Property got me curious on this one again
  12. Haven’t included a pic from my phone before but hopefully this works - per the school’s website, they will be moving to an interim campus. This FB post mentions they will be listing several parcels with JLL but sounds like the new campus is proceeding. Also note the mention of developers who own current school “proceeding with development.” That’s 7200 Main. At this point could just mean demo of school but...who knows
  13. Google streetview supports this - the panels were there in March 2008 and gone in September 2009, so Ike was the likely culprit.
  14. Those missing sections of facade in your last shot there have always (well, for at least the last 6 years I've lived in area) been missing. It looks like the offsetting slabs were reinforced at some point, so I've always wondered just how secure it all is... FWIW, the article below indicates they are renovating the building: https://tees.tamu.edu/news/2018/04/06/enmed-program-obtains-lcme-approval-to-move-forward/

  16. FWIW, property is fenced off and apparently some pretty serious demo work going on (Precision Demolition). Unclear if this is going to impact the exterior, but at night it's pretty evident they are doing extensive gutting
  17. I'll grab a shot at night when I can - the lighting is quite nice. I'm sure it's got a great view from upper floors
  18. I’ve been seeing this on my neighborhood walks but could never find anything on FAA site in regards to height. A pleasant surprise on the size edit: 8 out of 14 floors for parking seems odd for an office
  19. Nm. Guess a few days late on noticing demo started
  20. This land just sold to "1500 OST LLC", which appears associated with Crosswell Realty Partners (Newquest Crosswell?). Not sure what that means
  21. Some sort of permit issued here regarding filling and grading - have to wonder if it’s related to new floodplain regulations effective Sept 1 as I know net fill rules become more restrictive Project No: 18098972 Date : 2018/08/24 00:00:00 USE : FILL AND GRADE ONLY Owner/Occupant : *KEITH SIMON, 7200 MAIN CORPORATION Job Address : 7200 MAIN ST 77030 Valuation : $ 0 Permit Type : PX FCC Group : Structures Other than Buildings Buyer : *TBD Address : 7200 MAIN ST 77030 Phone : (512) 501-4323
  22. This property was bought by A&M last year to house their EnMed program https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/education/article/A-M-focusing-on-Houston-with-purchase-of-land-12271197.php https://tees.tamu.edu/news/2018/04/06/enmed-program-obtains-lcme-approval-to-move-forward/ So no fancy mixed-use development, but will at least be renovated. Still holding out hope for 7200 Main just down the street....someday
  23. Methodist has built a child care center on the western extent of this plot in the last couple of years. Not sure it's legit enough for a "going up!" post just yet but there have also been some recent permits for Methodist that appear to be related to an office building + garage. Currently most of the land is occupied by Hunt construction and temporary buildings (presumably related to other construction in the area) PROJECT_NO PERMIT_DESC OWNER_OCCUPANT Address PROJECT_DESC CURRENT_VALUATION PERMIT_TYPE 18049409 Expedited Com *HOUSTON METHODIST HOSPITAL 7550 GREENBRIAR DR 77030 (EPR) SITEWORK & FOUNDATION FOR FUTURE OFFICE BUILDING '12 IBC 0 EC 18049409 Plan Review Fee *HOUSTON METHODIST HOSPITAL 7550 GREENBRIAR DR 77030 (EPR) SITEWORK & FOUNDATION FOR FUTURE OFFICE BUILDING '12 IBC 0 PX 18049409 Express Review *HOUSTON METHODIST HOSPITAL 7550 GREENBRIAR DR 77030 (EPR) SITEWORK & FOUNDATION FOR FUTURE OFFICE BUILDING '12 IBC 0 SX 18049483 Plan Review Fee *HOUSTON METHODIST HOSPITAL 7550 GREENBRIAR DR GARAG 77030 (EPR) FOUNDATION FOR FUTURE GARAGE '12 IBC 0 PX
