This contract was announced by development firm Stonehenge Holdings LLC President Kevin Matocha on March 16 at Fort Bend County Judge KP George’s first quarterly Fort Bend Forward community conversations event." also... “[The EpiCenter] is way ahead of bookings,” Morales said. “They are getting national firms wanting naming rights to the tune of $30 [million] to $50 million.”

The building is situated next to a bayou-side greenspace, Midway said March 21." https://realtynewsreport.com/east-river-adding-art-to-the-mix/ "Houston-based RE: site Studio will be creating a permanent, signature element for a hub location between two greenspaces within the 150-acre project’s commercial, retail and dining spaces, and related connecting trails adjacent to Buffalo Bayou. As designed, the stretched-out rhombus of a sculpture celebrates the East End’s multicultural diversity — as well as its history and landscape, press materials indicate. More specifically, the recently commissioned piece will feature a tidy assemblage of custom, vertically bundled steel pipes that have been cut “artistically” on the diagonal to reveal colorfully painted interiors. Their patch-worked palate draws inspiration from African American and Louisiana Creole quilts and textiles and from Mexican palm baskets and deshilado embroidery (a form of drawn threadwork). Breaking down the sculpture’s components, the pipes’ raw exterior will be left to rust and weather — as a reference to the industrial heritage of the bayou-adjacent site. In addition, the bundled form of articulated surfaces mimics the rippling and interplay of Buffalo Bayou and the Gulf of Mexico, which have fueled Houston’s growth and its cultural cross-pollination."

Holiday Drive. First, developers confirm the official name of the apartment complex is The Cove at GYB. When announcing the project in September 2021, developers tentatively were calling it The Dunstan. The development is a partnership with Houston-based The Brownstone Group, with partners Rocky Sullivan and Greg Pappas. Second, developers want to ensure neighbors understand the project is what’s known as a traditional asset and unlike other nearby multifamily projects, won’t include an affordable housing component, Christy Miner, asset manager for The Brownstone Group, told Biz Buzz this week."

Stay tuned."
  5. McCoy's is still around isn't it? I remember they moved from the freeway and built out on the lot where Dub Miller Ford used to be. I do remember City Farmer growing up. I think it was Williams' City Farmer and it was located on Avenue I at Louise St behind the Safeway/AppleTree/Walgreens. Used to go with my grandparents, who knew the gentleman who ran the store, and they got a lot of their seeds for gardening over there. It's been a washateria forever since then though.

The update came during a presentation by Flatiron/Dragados, the project developer, to the Corpus Christi City Council on Tuesday, marking progress on the prolonged bridge project, which is likely to exceed its nearly $1 billion budget. The singular outstanding dispute concerns the proposed design of certain joint pier segments, which connect to the bridge’s main span segments and allow the bridge to expand and shrink in accordance with outside temperatures. Certain joint pier segments in the proposed design, according to an independent analysis, could erroneously allow for a significant uplift in certain wind conditions, resulting in the elongation of the stays and redistribution of the load."

If negotiations proceed as planned, according to sources with knowledge of the talks, the teams will create a new business entity that will assume ownership of the network from Warner Bros. Discovery. While negotiations continue, Astros and Rockets games will still air on AT&T SportsNet Southwest, which has carried both teams since 2014."

Most of what is there is either a midrise apartment building or a four-story townhome. We saw an opportunity to bring something new to the area while embracing River Oaks’ classic architecture.” When it is completed next year, The Lexington will have 40 units, including four penthouse units. The units will range in size from 2,700 square feet to 4,000 square feet and will cost between $1.6 million and $4 million for the penthouses. “Forty units is a good fit for a lot of people,” Darnell said. “It has greater intimacy than larger condo buildings. A lot of people want to have that privacy while also having lock-and-leave lifestyle.”

The park, which is slated for completion in late 2024 or early 2025, will span an estimated 7 acres and be located near the MUD’s administrative building at 19720 Kuykendahl Road, Spring. Bradley said the park will feature multiple children’s play areas for a variety of age ranges, a pavilion and native plants. Bridgestone MUD’s park will also be home to interactive play areas designed for children with special needs and water conservation features, such as rain gardens and recycled-water amenities."

  10. Didn't see a thread for this specific building but wanted to get one started since it sounds like work will be taking place in the near future. https://realtynewsreport.com/historic-building-redo-planned/ " HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – A 119-year-old building at the corner of Main and Franklin in downtown Houston has been acquired for redevelopment by NewForm Real Estate, which has renovated other nearby historic properties. The six-story downtown structure, designed by architectural firm Green and Svarz for Commercial National Bank, opened in November of 1904 and operated as a financial building until 1970. Located at 917 Franklin, the building will expand NewForm’s redevelopment effort, called Main & Co., which includes several adjacent historic structures, namely the Raphael, Dorrance, and Brewster buildings. The project will have office space with street-level retail. CBRE is leasing the reimagined 35,000 total SF of office suites while Transwestern is leasing the 5,158 SF of street-level retail space. The building was acquired from LALM LLC, which is affiliated with Lewis Marks."
  11. https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2023/03/09/progresso-learning-language-school-greenspoint.html "A private language school has purchased a 60,000-square-foot office building in Greenspoint for its new main campus and corporate office. English-as-a-second-language instructor Frank Macias, who owns Progresso Learning Academy, closed on the six-story building at 11947 North Freeway last month, according to NewQuest Properties’ John Nguyen, who represented the seller, Contender Two LLC. A Los Angeles-based company registered Contender Two LLC last year, according to online Texas business directories. Nguyen only said that it is a hospitality company that has changed its plans of relocating to Houston. The limited liability company had owned the building since May 2022, according to the Harris County Appraisal District. Albi Neziri, managing partner at The Woodlands-based Texas Advantage Realty, represented the buyer, who made the close with 24-month seller financing, according to NewQuest."
  12. It's actually the one in Bryan that is still open. This article from KBTX, posted 6 days after the above comment, mentions that the College Station location opened in 1982 and would (then) close on November 27th of last year. The lease expired on November 30th. The lease for the Bryan location apparently has 5 more years on it at present. I'm hoping to convince my family to go there when I'm down this upcoming weekend if but for the nostalgia. Want to see if it's indeed the "old" Kettle.
  13. Leasing brochure has been updated a bit in the past month. For the Phase I Side... The space immediately southwest of the movie theater has changed proposed uses. It has gone from being an indoor entertainment complex like the previously proposed Main Street to a space for Murdoch's Ranch & Home Supply, a Montana-based retailer. That store apparently would need an outdoor yard that is across the entry way into that section of the project, and would claim one of the parcels previously proposed for a pad site. Immediately next to that parcel is one that is also offered - but currently the site of a small building that was most recently home to Child Advocates. It would likely be cleared in the process. For the Phase II Side... While not noted explicitly in the leasing information, the former Capital One Bank location behind the IHOP appears to have shifted uses and will be used by a firm called Pediatrix. There's nothing on Pediatrix's website about a Rosenberg location, though what I think this will be is a pediatric urgent care location that was formerly known as NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care, and whose closest location was in First Colony Commons in Sugar Land. Night Light's current website doesn't mention a Rosenberg location either, but it does discuss the transition to the Pediatrix brand. The proposed Dunkin location is still in place where Carl's Jr. once was.. Salad And Go is listed as coming soon behind the Stripes at Reading and Minonite Roads.
  14. Fox Weather is available OTA on 26's .3 subchannel around the clock now. For a while after they had launched it, they also ran it on KTXH weekday mornings at about 9 or 10, well into last year. I think this was during the timeslot Stephen Morgan is one of the meteorologists on duty. Based on the schedules I see today, they aren't running that hour anymore on 20.
  15. https://www.dallasnews.com/business/real-estate/2023/03/07/first-look-next-new-tower-proposed-for-dallas-turtle-creek-neighborhood/ "The tower proposed by Dallas’ Validus Development Corp. would include 104 luxury residential units in 29 stories. Developers presented plans for the project – located at Hood and Brown streets near Fairmount – at this week’s Oak Lawn Committee meeting. Units in the tower would average more than 2,200 square feet, with only four residences per floor. Parking would be in an underground garage, and a second-floor amenity area would include a swimming pool."
