    A vacant landfill that for decades endangered and diminished Houston’s low-income Sunnyside neighborhood has gotten the green light for conversion into a solar energy farm.

    Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said on Earth Day, April 22, that the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality had granted a permit for the $70 million Sunnyside Solar Farm, which was originally announced last year.

    The project will be anchored by 70 megawatts of solar panels installed across 224 acres. The farm will produce enough energy to power 5,000 to 10,000 homes. The project also will feature a 2-megawatt community solar installation, an education hub, and an agricultural center.

    City officials say the project will be the largest urban solar farm in the country and will remove an estimated 60,000 tons of carbon dioxide from the air each year.

    Barvin, a Houston-based real estate investment and service company, announced April 20 plans for a new 10-acre mixed-use development at the corner of Stella Link Road and South Braeswood Boulevard in Braes Heights.

    Named Stella & Braes, the project is the first mixed-use development to be tackled by Barvin, according to an April 20 press release. The company operates several multifamily properties in Houston, including Heights at Woodland Park and Memorial Towers Apartments.

    Plans for the site include Class A multifamily space and retail elements focused on specialty food and beverage, according to the release. Demolition began over the April 16 weekend on a building at the site that formerly housed a Sellers Bros. grocery store.

    Construction is expected to begin in the fall on a 310-unit apartment community, which could open in the summer of 2024. The community will feature studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units ranging in size from 600-1,500 square feet.

    Construction is set to begin in 2023 on 25,000 square feet of dining and retail space across several standalone buildings that will wrap around public plazas and expansive green spaces, according to the release.

    The final phase of the project—which includes another multifamily development with roughly 350 units—will begin as early as the spring of 2024 and wrap up in the spring of 2026.

    Are we getting a spire or anything with a non-flat roof? Recent 30 story residential buildings are usually around 350-400 feet. 

    I’m thinking this as well or the number of stories has increased. Leaning towards the latter because the architectural feature would have to be pretty significant.

    Luay Nakhleh, the William and Stephanie Sick Dean of the George R. Brown School of Engineering, toured the construction site of the new Engineering and Science Building on April 5. The 266,000-square-foot building rising on the former Abercrombie Engineering Lab site will host materials, quantum and energy research among other initiatives, and will be home to The Welch Institute. The building is expected to open in early 2023.

    We discussed this potential was maybe going to be where the current Tower 5040 on Calhoun ended up due to the render showing the building next door and Brays Bayou next to it.


    In what thread was this discussed? If there’s enough evidence I’ll merge it there or start a new one.
