  1. Hearst Selects HFF to Market Houston Chronicle Downtown Property http://realtynewsreport.com/2014/11/21/hearst-selects-hff-to-market-houston-chronicle-downtown-property/ Thanks to desertpunk at SSC.
  2. Interesting new article: http://www.dmagazine.com/publications/d-ceo/2014/september/why-investors-are-flocking-to-downtown-dallas Huge corporate campuses are being built in the northern suburbs, and Uptown office buildings are securing record-breaking rental rates. But the biggest commercial real estate story in Dallas may be the revitalization of the city’s urban core, where a staggering number of redevelopment projects are setting the stage for a major transformation. Activity is focused on the city’s center, the area between Pacific Avenue and Main, Commerce, and Elm streets. Sales volu
  3. I heard rumors of a residential building planned for block 387. I finally saw something that gave that rumor some credence although I don't have anything substantial - this should be taken with a grain of salt. Soil samples.
  4. I don't have the specifics for the height, floors, architect, etc. but here's what she's going to look like... I believe this is the view of the north side of the building that will face Market Square. This is based on the other renderings of the Chronicle site building. Block 42:
  5. Colorado Group Plans $80M Mixed-Use, Infill Project By Jennifer D. Duell Last updated: July 19, 2005 08:23am HOUSTON-Within three years, a mixed-use project is expected to rise on Block 98, a piece of vacant land adjacent to the new city park and the George R. Brown Convention Center. Two companies from Colorado Springs, LandCo Properties LLC and Equity Edge LLC, have formed a partnership to transform the 1.5-acre tract into two residential high-rises with ground-floor retail space. Block 98 is bordered by Rusk, Crawford, Walker and LaBranch streets near Toyota Center. Each

  7. Camden Property Trust will build on two blocks in downtown. Phase one begins in Spring 2015 which will include a 12-story high-rise. Phase two begins in Spring 2017. Total of 518 units. #31 on the new development map. http://downtownhouston.org/site_media/uploads/attachments/2013-12-19/131218_Current_Projects_11x17.pdf
  8. I just posted online a comprehensive listing of my concerns about TxDOT's plan. http://houstonfreeways.com/analysis I would certainly be interested in getting any feedback for errors in my analysis, or issues I missed. Of course, some of these issues are matters of opinion, but many are serious and need to be looked at by TxDOT. I'm going to submit the final list (pending any changes based on feedback) as public comment.

  10. Noticed this today on my bike ride.... anyone happen to know what they are replacing this with? Another parking garage or something else?

    Pennzoil Place

    Maybe I was trippin. Either pennzoil place has a light show on their building at night now, or it was just lights from party on the plaza. I saw it coming in from 45 n last night. It looked cool, and then right by the bagby exit u see the big blue lights comin from under the freeway for the bayouwalk.
  12. I've only lived in Houston and downtown for two years and I am amazed by the amount of change that has occurred on the restaurant / bar scene. When I moved here, OKRA was not even open / even hinted at. Since then there has been a number of successful openings and it's hard to keep up with the pace of change. I've also been very pleased with the quality of each opening - these establishments are nothing like the typical Midtown / Wash Ave bars where the bartenders do not even know what Campari is. Here are recent openings in no particular order: Prohibition (1008 Prairie). A burlesque event s
  13. I know there's been some discussion in the past of the site that the Scamrock was planned for, and that Hines had been involved with the site as of late. After stumbling across this page & the rendering included, I was wondering if anyone had additional info on it.

  14. According to the Chronicle, several tenants are already clearing out of the building even though Skanska has not confirmed anything. Latest renderings & info: http://blog.chron.com/primeproperty/2015/06/developer-to-pour-foundation-for-downtown-office-tower/#23198101=0

    511 Main St.

    I've been watching 511 Main get some serious roof repairs on a giant hole the past week or so. If this is too small of scale, for Going up! please move it. I'll continue to taking snapshots of the progress. This is from today
  16. There's an "energy" downtown (especially along Main) that feels unique to our diverse, minimally zoned city. With the rail, Downtown Living Initiative, and popular eateries daring to set-up shop and stay open past business hours, the city's core is starting to feel less "business park" and more of an authentic place to experience urban life.
  17. Subdivision plat filed for the U-Haul Moving & Storage site at 1617 San Jacinto. The project will also take out half of the surface lot along Leeland. SubdivisionPlatPDF_1617-1741_U-Haul at San Jacinto No 745062_plat.pdf
  18. Subdivision plat filed by Urban Genesis for a multifamily project at the corner of Wood & Walnut Streets. SubdivisionPlatPDF_CS 19074-PLAT_v1.pdf Currently, a warehouse sits on site.
  19. Following the murder of George Floyd, peaceful protests took place through the afternoon and evening yesterday. Unfortunately, as the night went on, it appears some people took advantage of the situation and vandalized some areas of downtown. See the images and videos from instagram below: These are sensitive times, and I don't mean to send any negative messages in posting these images. To me these actions seem to take on a more selfish nature than in support of any just cause, and it saddens me to think that anyone would believe that this dest
  20. I wanted to touch on a topic that has been weighing heavy on my mind recently, and I'd like to hear peoples thoughts. It's ironic that I discovered both these posts today. First, I read a somewhat encouraging article from Houston Public Media about a 5% decline in the homeless population from 2018 to 2019. You can read more in the article here: https://www.houstonpublicmedia.org/articles/news/city-of-houston/2019/05/15/333384/homelessness-down-5-in-houston/ . Obviously the stat on mental health spending was a little depressing, but to hear that Harris, Fort Bend, and Montgomery cou

  22. InternationalTowerintheCBDisbeingdevelopedbyStreamRealty and Essex Commercial Properties. This 925,000-square-foot, 37 story, Class A building in the CBD is being marketed as Houston’s first 50-story office tower in 30 years. http://www.us.am.joneslanglasalle.com/ResearchLevel1/Houston%20Highlights_Q1_2013.pdf Hbj mentioned this in one of their articles yesterday Per the article it is bounded by Preston, Prarie, Milam, Travis and is 750,000 sqf which contradicts jll When I look at the location it is the same location as the supposed linbeck location. Can someone explain?
  23. Downtown residential highrise's being planned by Marquette Cos. Totaling more the 350 units. But they don't stop there... http://www.bisnow.com/commercial-real-estate/houston/what-do-downtown-and-galveston-have-in-common/ Renderings and info as of 4/2014: http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/morning_call/2014/04/future-office-construction-inspiration-for-new.html
  24. I ate at the bustling Rosalie Italian restaurant located in the lobby of the C. Baldwin Hotel (formally Double Tree). You know, the Allen Center Hotel that half the west facing views are obstructed by a parking garage? The renovation in the Hotel is fantastic (and so is the lobby bar). The restaurant layout is different. It feels like you're dining in The Lexington Grille - all the rooms are separated and provide an old converted home feel. Style and atmosphere satisfied my appetite. The Cocktail list wasn't my thing. I'm not really into the whole idea behind a Mixologi
