  1. It's interesting to note that the surface lot across from this just went on the market. http://www.loopnet.com/Listing/SEC-WESLAYAN-W-ALABAMA-Houston-TX/11813599/

  8. Yet another five-story wrap in the Energy Corridor by Trammell Crow. http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/morning_call/2015/03/dallas-developer-paves-way-for-new-luxury.html
  9. I couldn't find anything on this and just read about it this morning. http://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Fire-museum-plans-doused-by-lack-of-funding-4927493.php?cmpid=btfpm#/0 That article on the Fire Museum's plans says that they are selling the land to Alexan. "Money for those improvements should come from a pending sale of the museum's planned building site, a 1.44-acre tract at Main and Hadley for apartment development. M. Scot Davis of Trammell Crow Residential said the high-end project, Alexan Midtown, will have five stories of apartments atop two levels of parking. Davis said the average 850-square-foot unit will lease for about $1,700 a month. Sale of property is to close on Monday, Davis said. Construction of the 215-unit complex should begin in January, with the first units ready for occupancy in early 2015."
  10. Sign is up seeking to consolidate a number of lots into a single unrestricted reserve. Nothing up yet on the Planning Commission agenda. Looks like most of the land is owned by Pappas, but only some of it is being used as a lot for their trucks (and for HPD speed traps). I doubt Pappas would develop it into a restaurant. Looks like too much land and Pappas has mostly been expanding in the burbs recently. My guess is that the land has been sold and someone else is going to develop. It is a bit of an odd shaped parcel. Kind of skinny, but might be a backward C shape if the vacant land on Allston is also in play. Of course, my wish would be for a mixed use development with 2-3 stories of residential on top of ground floor retail. There is a little cluster of retail north of 7th on Yale St. and Dry Creek across the street on 6th that could create another little retail enclave in the Heights. I doubt that it would happen because there are still pads for lease across the highway in Ainbinder and Orr's developments with rumors of another strip mall going in at SJ Stone. My guess is townhome cluster (Frank Liu-esque) or multi-family. Weekly is doing a big townhome project on TC Jester at the old elementary school site and has a little lot of town homes going in up the street from the site seeking a variance. I could see something like that happening. Of course, given the current trend inside the loop, a pencil box apartment complex is also a predictable use for the site. But, it is a bit odd shaped for what developers and lenders are looking to build inside the loop these days.
  11. Construction fencing has gone up along the southwest corner...a pretty large expanse of land that stretches from what used to be a gas station west to past what used to be a La Quinta (that motel is still standing). I'm hearing rumblings of mixed use, similar to CityCentre. Anyone know anything about this?
  12. Alexan coming to the energy corridor. http://www.yourhoustonnews.com/memorial/news/alexan-enclave-coming-to-energy-corridor/article_eb8391f3-e597-591c-bda5-7f37603b6e9d.html
  13. Anyone have any experience with the apartment complex in Fairfield called Alexan Sommerall located at 6777 Sommerall Drive. Thanks for your help.
  14. OK, I'm SO not a rental apartment type of person, but the Alexan Lofts are pretty darn cool. I have a couple of friends who live there, and they seem to be high quality and very urban (unlike the new construction pseudo-lofts in other parts of downtown). Apparently, they were lofts before the management company took them over and renovated, but I'm not sure. The only major downside, apart from the lack of retail, is the proximity of the well-used train tracks. I can't imagine that those trains are quiet as they come roaring just feet from the building at all hours of the day and night. My friends say they are oblivious to the sound, but still....I guess that is why they are rentals and not individually owned. Does anyone else know of cool, not-as-well-known loft rentals? It might be good to get a list going to show that there is more to the downtown area than Post, Rice, and Calais! Travelguy_73
  15. 13 reported that the alexan complex had 43 car windows broken overnite. they are currently reviewing video from the complex to see whether they may have captured the culprits at work.
  16. "The defunct Courtesy Chevrolet dealership -- which fell victim to the Katy Freeway widening project last year -- will soon become the site of hundreds of luxury apartments. The Chevrolet dealership was well known because it had an advertising jingle promoting its high-profile site -- 7777 Katy Freeway. Now, up to 400 residents could have that catchy address when the apartment complex is finished in June 2009. Trammell Crow Residential broke ground at the site on Halloween on its latest Alexan-branded apartment complex. Located on the busy freeway near Silber, the Alexan Silber will have 402 apartments described as ultra Class A by the Atlanta developer. The complex will have four floors of residential surrounding a five-story parking garage. The project will include two pools, a 6,800-square-foot clubhouse, fitness center and wine tasting room. Designed by Wallace Garcia Wilson Architects Inc., the stucco and brick exteriors will have a traditional feel." Bizjournal article. It's nice to see the feeder roads being used for something other than garrish retail. Having a view of the rat race could be interesting as long as the noise could be lessened somehow, although I'm thinking that's something that can only partially be cured and would become only white noise after a time.
  17. I recently noticed that a chain link fence has been erected around 1111 Post Oak Blvd. This is the very old and recently vacated apartment complex directly west of the McDonalds. Does anyone know what they are going to do with that land?
  18. Richmond just east of Kirby across from the VW dealership, a crane went up for a project called "Alexian" It has 207 units and is street front. The billboard had a picture, it look about the size of the new "Empire".
