  1. Partners form mixed-use real estate triangle Houston Business Journal - June 23, 2006 by Jennifer Dawson Houston Business Journal With developable land in the Galleria area becoming increasing scarce, an enterprising partnership has acquired an aging office building in the Uptown District with plans to cluster new developments around the 11-story structure. An affiliate of Houston-based AmREIT purchased the Prosperity Bank building at 5433 Westheimer with the intention of eventually surrounding it with a mixed-use development possibly including retail, residential and hotel elements. Parts of

    Sage Place

    I did a forum search and it didn't return any hits and I haven't seen anything on this posted... Sage Place: Mixed Use 33 Story, 307 Residential units 2 levels and 88k+ sq.ft of retail 828 parking spots No location given other than Houston, TX I don't know how to post the picture, so maybe someone with more knowledge can do it, here's the website: http://www.wdg-habib.com/mixed-use.html
  3. It is clear by now that many developers are focusing rennovating the strip of Post Oak from Westheimer to San Felipe. What about the areas between San Felipe and 610 (towards uptown Park?) The only building that fits the neighborhood is 1200 Post Oak Blvd. (apt. complex across from the McDonalds.) Everything else is old (i.e., Inverness and Winhall condos and dreadful 111 Post Oak Apts.). Those developments stick out like a sore thumb when looking at the beuaty and architecture of Uptown Park, Montebello, Villa D'este, and 1200 Post Oak, etc). Are there any plans to do massive reconstruc
  4. Nice article on a new development in the Up-Town area. http://www.bizjournals.com/bizspace/housto...tory_id=1176985 The property is located at: here I thought the comment on Houston's good ol' laissez faire property development in lieu of legislative land use restrictions was interesting. It was just one of those things you knew, but hadn't really thought of it that way.
  5. EXCLUSIVE REPORTS From the August 12, 2005 print edition Car dealership gives way to urban infill Jennifer Dawson Houston Business Journal A high-end development mixing retail, residential and possibly office space will soon be parked on an inner-city tract that has been occupied by auto dealerships for the past three decades. Trademark Property Co. is negotiating a long-term ground lease on six acres on Westheimer just west of Mid Lane, which is currently home to a Central Ford dealership. Trademark is the Fort Worth-based developer behind the $100 million Market Street project in The Woodlan

  8. I not 100% sure on this, but my friend sent me this picture and he said that a new Residential Tower is going to be build Uptown galleria area.I don't no if it's go or not.
  9. I was driving into town yesterday and notice a new construction crane off of woodway. It looked to be about 20 stories high. Can anyone tell me what this is for?
  10. I was driving down Sage this morning to ge my breakfast at Chica Fila, and could not help but notice the huge crane that is imbetween the apartment complex 3000 sage and the new shopping center still under construction. It is much taller than the one they have up at the Holiday Inn construciton site. Does anyone have any idea what they are building? Just curious.
  11. Developer Advances 68-Unit Condo Plan By Jennifer D. Duell Last updated: March 9, 2005 HOUSTON-Local development company, Pelican Builders Inc., plans to break ground within 30 days on its first mid-rise residential condominium project. The 68-unit Briarglen, set to deliver in late 2006, is the first of three buildings for the first phase of a redevelopment plan for the Mid Lane neighborhood. The condos, tagged at $240 per sf, will rise at 2215 Briarglen Dr. between Westheimer Road and San Felipe Boulevard. Derek Darnell, president of Pelican Builders, tells GlobeSt.com that 27 units have been

  14. Groundwork laid for Galleria-area hotel Interfin Cos. is seeking city approval to construct a 132-room hotel beside Uptown Park, the European-styled retail center at Post Oak and the West Loop. City documents show plans for a hotel called the Granduca Hotel at 1080 Uptown Park Blvd., to be constructed between the Montebello and Villa d'Este high-rise condominiums, which were developed by Interfin. Interfin President Giorgio Borlenghi says it is premature to discuss the possible development of a hotel. Interfin is considering a project on that site, but plans have not been finalized, he says
  15. Looking for lots Turnberry, a Florida-based developer, is sniffing around Houston for a site to build a swanky high-rise residential tower. A spokeswoman from the company said there is talk about a Houston project, but there was "no information to give out." A look at the company's most recent brochure, however, reveals a lot more. It says Turnberry is planning a 42-story tower for the Uptown/Galleria area. Sources said the company may be looking at a site owned by Walton Street Capital near the Williams Tower. Founded by Donald Soffer, the company has such developments as the Aventura Mall i
  16. Galleria offices slated The Galleria area may have an abundance of vacant space in its office buildings, but that doesn't seem to bother Midway Cos., which is planning to build one more. But this building won't house huge law firms or oil and gas conglomerates that most big landlords drool over. For one thing, they wouldn't fit. Midway's office building is going to be only four stories tall with 50,000 square feet. That's about the size of one major tenant in a building like Williams Tower. The low-key location and high-end design sell a different kind of experience. The property is being bui
  17. Does anyone know what is being built on Sage to the left of The Mens Club? There are large concrete pillars comming up from the ground. Just curious!!
  18. Just heard that the Monaco Condos are a no-go. Apparently, the price points were too high for the typical Houstonian who wants more space than a hi-rise can offer! I have heard that they still plan on building a hi-rise on that site but they will revamp the entire project, drop many of the amenities, and start with lower price points and fewer units (thus, most likely a much smaller building). Was told this will be about 3 years away from actually happening though.

  20. I am now living in Los Angeles, but on a recent trip to Houston, I saw the difference in retail outlets in the Galleria and even Highland Village. Both places have gotten pretty big chains and specialty stores, like Burberry, Dior, Bose, Jimmy Choo, and Luca Luca. Although most people don't care for this, since it is outside of most people's reach, I work in this industry, doing marketing for luxury brands, and I know that stores moving into a city at this pace signifies growth and confidence that the city is chic enough and diversified enough to open shop. In Houston, there have been 13 s
